Default Failed with Ritz89 tutor please be careful dont get scammed

I had a very bad experience with this Ritz private tutor ritz89 he never showed up for his online review and his private training was terrible, he mislead me and taught me the physical exams the wrong way and he ended up stealing 1,000 from me i had paid for extended training with him and he never showed up online, he is an unmatched garbageman that is trying to make money off of IMGs he carries around Kaplan notes tries to teach off of them and committ intellectual theft of services and fraud

Always ask for their Valid govt id and first and last name before you begin any sessions this will save you from being scammed like i did

I see that you have had an issue with a tutor under the name Ritz89, I do not know this individual and am not affiliated with them in any shape and form. Please do not post false information under my Comments. I take this very seriously and haves many students currently who I am helping succeed in their prep. I am well aware that you have issues with other people-- but please be sure that you are posting comments to people you know and do not assume that I am the other individual you are having problems with. I would report this to the company you paid this indovodual through or the forum administrator. Please do not defame or wrongly accuse me under my comments. I do not know you. I am sorry that you have had issues with this person. Please feel free to reach out to me for help and I would be willing to even give you a free first session because of your bad experience. God bless!

Greatly appreciated!

You should contact either your bank or paypal and report the individual you paid. Do not take your rage of being betrayed by another tutor onto people you do not know!! The comment you payed under my tutoring ad was very rude and incorrect! You don't know me-- I am a female tutor! From the looks of your old comments about "ritz89" that was a male.

Refrain from defaming others on forums. You will be reported.

Fire Thread Please stop bugging me with fake profiles

Hello, I feel sorry about your failure but why are you blackmailing me for asking money in privately? I did not coach u. It will be good to share your details and if u need any help I will help you. And plz get the details before you post. Are you having any idea am I taking money for this or just doing it for my willingness to help others? As I never am asking for money. And being a doctor I guess you are not stupid to pay anybody 1000 dollars without nothing. And honestly nobody in this practice world will pay this big amount without knowing or without any details. What's my background in academics? Also if you see my post, it's since more than a year or so. Do you think I must be that stupid to run my work so smoothly and in a good manner for one year and then suddenly start stealing money from people. In this one year, I never cheated anyone or else people might have posted it. It's shows here you have joined the forum yesterday, so why are you making fake profiles and disturbing my work of helping people. You also have no other post apart from the one you posted here, that means you just are making fake profiles and bugging me. I never ask for any money in advance, second thing people themselves decide to pay, I am not forcing anyone to pay and they are also not in my control that I can force them to pay. It will be better to start preparing for cs again rather than wasting ur time on bothering people like me. Also it would be descent to ask for help rather than blackmailing me privately for money and may be others too. And for people who wanna approach me for help, plz approach me directly and ask me your questions directly and decide yourself, if you wanna move further rather than believing suck fakes. Will be happy to answer your questions and get a no for taking my coaching rather then just assuming I m no good. Be yourself a desicion maker. Friend, I m a simple person trying to do my work sincerely so plz don't bug me, I have done nothing wrong to you.
Good Luck.

Hi, after reading your post I felt the need to share my personal experience, because Ritz89 is actually tutoring me. I do not know who is the person you had the problem with, but me, I've never had any problem with him, as a tutor have to say tjis: he's a nice guy who is helping me preparing for CS, is very flexible with the times for the meetings, answers any questions and doubts, and as you have talked about money, also have to say that he never took any money from me in advance and never have had any issue with money. I'm no fake identity, I'm a real IMG preparing for CS and my advice is.....study buddy....and good luck.

Default great tutor

I just finished preparing for CS with Ritz and I can confirm that he is an amazing tutor and will help make sure you pass. There is a tremendous amount of garbage posted on this site it is all a lie. I am a US resident and a medical student in a top 20 medical school and I can confirm Ritz is bright, very skilled, and an honest person. Anything contrary to this is simply not true and probably driven by jealousy. Ritz prepares you for the exam extremely well all 12 cases on my exam were cases I reviewed with Ritz because of Ritz I walked into the exam confident and left even more confident. If you want to pass and need help do yourself a favor a work with Ritz

Smile Responding to all this tutoring confusion.

I usually don't ever write in the forums and just go on them to read other peoples experiences with their exams and different approaches to improve my studying habits.

But unfortunately--- Yes you are right Arvinpatel! There is a reason why so many people are complaining--I have heard numerous bad experiences with Ritz in the past about 3 months ago-- i was directed to this post by my tutor (yourusmletutor.com). She is a substantial tutor who has been tutoring for over 2.5 years and is Very knowledgeable! I have improved by NBME scores substantially with her! (30 points guys!!)

I also have another friend who complained that ritz tutor also stole his money and that he posts under his own comments posing as other people. Please be careful who you choose as a tutor for your exam prep.

My name is Allison Mayhew and i am a 2nd year med student at UMDNJ school of medicine in NJ. I have been tutoring with Dr. Farooqi for the past 3 months and my retention has gone up tremendously! She really reinforces important high yield concepts and makes them very clear to recall. She has shown me how clinical integration is the most important thing-- once i started to integrate concepts my name scores went up by 30 points. I am still working with Dr farooqi and plan on taking my exam mid October.

She directed me to this post because people were comparing her to Ritz tutor-- who i have heard from multiple people is a scam. She has no clue who he is and likes to make other tutors look bad on purpose to steal peoples money. Please be careful who you choose online to tutor with-- don't be adamant to pay right away unless you have met them and they have proven their knowledge.

Yourusmletutor is an excellent tutor and i have recommended her all over my campus to my friends who are also struggling with this damn exam!

She is working on establishing a website so that she can substantiate her experiences with 100s of other students. You may refer to it -- which will have various testimonials and packages she offers. Her email goes by the same yourusmletutor@gmail.com. The website is launching this week. Goo Dr FAROOQI!!!!

If anyone has any doubts about the validation of this post-- please feel free to reach out to me-- ONLY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TUTOR PLEASE!
alimaymd@gmail.com

Many people pose as other people on this site-- i can vouch for my tutor 100%
i have no connection to the Ritz tutor and can only vouch for yourusmletutor.

Goodluck!!

Fire Thread Update

Hello,
I read the above post and saw that people are posting crazy about me without knowing me. I recommend that if anybody is looking for coaching, then better you can approach directly and decide urself. I am not asking for any money to have a conversation. You can atleast talk and I will be able to give you details about me. Also I am doing it more than a year. I am not mad to do it honestly for 10 months and suddenly starting to screw up my own work by stealing money from people. I did it great in past and still I am doing good with people. When you see such scams reporting about me, just visit their profile and see about them. Somebody is making fake profile and directly posting to me!
I feel tired about justifying that I am not doing anything wrong what people are mentioning. Just I know is, I am a person who is trying to help people pursue their goals and still I am being bugged by such fakes for which I have to give justification every time.

All I want to tell is I am not doing anything wrong, that I should be ashamed of. I am honest and doing my work sincerely.

Default hello

hello. everyone. I dont know what happened to OP. but I am here to share my story. I had Ritz as my tutor for only 2 days but I learned a lot from him even if we had different opinion on different things but he is really nice and honest person and his price is really decent compare to those big companies.

BTW Ritz is very very punctual. For those people who complain about Mr Ritz we probably had different person.
