Reach out to Muhammad ASAP. we first had a session on 16/8, he told me to get a nbme the next day and it was in the 220s .. I was shocked, I prepared for almost 6 months now! , my approach must be wrong ... he guided me through the proper way of preparing for step 1 .. he was the absolute best tutor you can imagine, whenever I wanted to schedule an appointment I was amazed by how quickly we could schedule an appointment.
one more thing I love about Muhammad is his deep solid understanding of concepts, I saw many tutors, they all know what's right or whats wrong, but no one - and I'm absolutely certain that no one knows WHY everything is the way it is like Muhammad, his foundations are solid, I would ask him about sth and honestly he would explain it to me even better than Jason Rayen ( obviously you would think I'm exaggerating, schedule an appointment and you'll see ) towards the end of my prep I was able to raise my nbme score to 250+, I didn't do uworld second pass, I didn't use Anki, I just followed what he said step by step, inch by inch in the day before the exam he talked to me and gave me comfort and reassurance and we did a final strategy review during the exam I called him during every break, he gave me confidence and made sure I was in the right path and I wasn't making preventable mistakes
I can never thank this guy enough

Muhammad has a strong mastery of the basic science material and generally understands what it takes to get to 250+ on step 1. After preparing for Step 1 by myself for a while and feeling lost, I contacted Muhammad and got his input. I only had a little amount of time with him, but putting to practice his recommendations helped bring my scores up by 20 points in NBME exams within 3 weeks. I can't help but imagine what I could've done with just another 3 more.
If I could do things over again, I would have gotten Muhammad's help from the beginning. Don't wait until the last minute, talk to Muhammad, let him help you come up with a plan, and stick to it. I promise you won't regret it.

Muhammad is Amazing.
He took the time to go through question strategy with me slowly and prepare me well for my exam. I started working with him for the last 3-4 weeks of my prep. Throughout exam day, he messaged me every hour between blocks to give me advice, remind me to stay calm etc... He was a tutor yes but also he was a coach through this whole process. I get nothing by writing this review, I just think everyone should have a tutor like him going through step. I have a few friends taking the exam next year and have told them they need to talk to Muhammad from day 1 of prep.

Just did my exam and Thanks to Muhammad it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. If you need someone in your corner throughout this process who is always on time for your sessions and gives his absolute best in making you achieve your goal, it's Muhammad. If you want someone who will help you understand and analyze the questions you are answering, this is your person. Before I started his sessions, I knew I had good knowledge but the problem came in answering the questions. He helped me understand how to answer questions and try to understand what the examiner is looking for and that helped me out a lot. Before I would just read the question and it was either I knew it or not but after the sessions with him, even the questions I had no clue most I was able to understand or at least figure out what they were trying to ask...He helped me figure out my own exam-taking strategy tailored to my weakness when it came to answering questions. The exam is doable you just have to be smart on how to approach it and I promise Muhammad has got your back. Hope more people out here are able to benefit from him. You've put in all the hardworking, now you just need to approach it in a smart way. For this, he's got your back

Muhammad was a key part of my USMLE STEP 1 preparation. I was really scared of NBME until Muhammad sat me down and went through NBME questions with me. Not only is his knowledge of the sciences unmatched, his strongest factor is his knowledge regarding exam strategy. I will say that at first, I did not appreciate the guidance and knowledge about how to prepare for the exam, and prepare for what comes along with exam day; until I was actually sitting in my exam. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR EVERYONE, (No matter where you are starting)! Muhammad will ensure that you are at your 100% best on exam day!

I go on Step 1 Reddit group to find support, updates and feedback from recent test takers. Mohammad's post caught my eyes when he said he recently took the test, got great scores, and offering tutoring to help others. Skepticism is in my nature, but I messaged Mohammad anyway and when we chatted, he was very nice and he knew what he was talking about. So I gave it a shot and I am 100% very happy that I did.
This is the type of help I was looking for, he was very relatable and offered great advice on study strategies and angels to attack questions. I'm telling you, this guy is very smart ! I have gone through review course, had study partners and as well trial and errors with self studying. But never been able to find someone that can help me in this level of detail. He is very responsive with his messages, never late to our appointment ( Actually, I had to reschedule a few times and he was very accommodating) .

When I first decided to try Mohammed as a tutor, I was mid way through my dedicated prep and I wanted someone in whom had done well on Step 1 in order to gage their thinking process as they went through these exams. I thoroughly enjoyed all my sessions with Mohammed; whenever I wanted to schedule a session, he quickly made time and I never waited more than a day to meet with him. He was very patient and went through specific and targeted aspects to help me improve my testing taking skills especially with questions I had not come across yet.
After each session, he would provide me with a list of things we went over and specific pointers that I should keep in mind when going through these exams. I am very grateful for meeting Mohammed because he never made me feel rushed during a session and always reiterated that this test was doable.
On top of everything, he was very affordable, especially for the average medical student. My only regret is not finding him when I first started my dedicated preparation. I hope to continue to seek his help in the future especially for my Step 2 CK. If you want an affordable tutor in addition to a patient and encouraging tutor who will guide you into the mindset of a top scorer, then I would highly recommend Mohammed. I am thankful to have had him apart of my dedicated process.
