Testimonials

I found Divine when searching for shelf review podcasts at the end of my 3rd year. I felt that he led comprehensive review sessions that hit on the major high yield topics! I would definitely recommend watching these as a complement to UWorld question prep. I also participated in a one-on-one tutoring session with Divine 2 weeks prior to my Step 2 CK exam. We went over high-yield test taking strategies that I used during the exam! They helped me narrow down the answer choices on the curveball questions. He also identified areas of weakness in my content review, so that I could focus on those areas prior to test day. I improved over 40 points between my Step 1 and Step 2 CK Score. Thank you Divine!

I learned about The Divine Intervention podcast from one of my friends. As per his advice I decided to join the one on one tutoring class and I am extremely happy that I did that. Divine is a great teacher. His areas of teaching include not just subject matter, but also test taking strategies which help you think like ‘your friends at the NBME’ think! I am very happy with my CK score and I wish I had known him before I did my step 1!!! I have learned that he tries to keep himself updated with changes in the testing patterns! When I told him that I struggle with Biostatistics he surprised me by creating a podcast just on Biostatistics and his tips did help with those complex questions on the real exam!!! Thanks Divine, if it was not with your help; I would not have scored this high in CK! I would highly recommend his tutoring without any hesitation to anyone needing to raise their scores! I went from a 211 on Step 1 to a 249 on Step 2CK!

I stumbled across Divine’s Podcasts and reviews early in my 3rd year. I had the pleasure of working with him one on one and found following his rigorous yet meticulously systematic schedule was paramount in my advancement which ultimately resulted in a dramatic score increase on my Step 2 exam. I wish I would have known him before taking Step 1! Going through and breaking down the questions/answers with Divine helped me learn how to take an exam and taught me what the test writers are truly trying to test. After prepping with Divine for 6 weeks I felt as though I was ready for Step 2 and felt that everything was covered during our review and tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend him to anyone preparing for shelf and Step exams.

Divine is an amazing teacher. He has a variety of resources that are easy to listen to and has concise board relevant material that is incredibly high yield. I remember taking Step 2 CK and saw so many questions that were word for word what he said would be on the test including obscure pharmacology. He is a great tutor and will identify strengths and weaknesses in both subjects as well as test taking strategy. One of the best uses for the tutoring service is learning test taking strategy which improved the way I thought about what the test takers would want. Furthermore, utilize the service for the NBME questions since he knows all the answers and will explain subjects that the test creators consider the highest yield. Amazing person and kind too.

A friend told me to listen to Divine’s high risk podcasts. I did and I was impressed with his presentation of the material. I decided to utilize his tutoring services. His explanations were clear and I was able to sit my USMLE step 2 CK exam with great confidence! I am extremely happy with the score I received and I know it was because of a Divine intervention!!! I can’t say thank you enough!!!

I am an international doctor, and I had never heard of people close to me trying tutoring before. After taking Step 1, I knew I needed to increase my score on Step 2CK to make my residency application more competitive. I had read some posts about USMLE tutoring and luckily ran into Divine’s website. Having these one-on-one sessions with Divine was so worth it. I was surprised with the results given the relatively little time I spent with him. My step 2CK score was in the 95th percentile with 6 weeks of studying in total and one session per week with Divine, which is less time than is usual for international students/doctors. I strongly believe that my Step 2CK score was a great boost for my app and helped me get more interviews than I first expected. Divine helped me set up a study schedule for Step 2CK with a focus on resources that were tailored to my learning style. He helped significantly with improving my test taking ability with a regular focus on how strategy could help with easy and difficult NBME questions. This changed everything, including the way I approach tests up to this day. What I learned during those sessions also helped me with studying for Step 3 where I scored in the 99th percentile (also after working with him for a few weeks). Going through my wrong questions on the NBME assessments with him taught me how to think like the test makers and make the most of my knowledge base and prevented me from getting questions wrong in those 50-50 scenarios were I would typically pick the wrong answer. I cannot thank him enough and will forever be grateful. I am also glad I got to meet him online since he is not only an A+ tutor and one of the smartest people I know, but he is so kind and hardworking and genuinely wants to make you a better version of yourself.
