My journey to passing the EPPP lasted 7 years and 7 attempts. I worked with Dr. Haran on my last and final attempt. Working with him helped me verify my understanding and find new ways to consolidate information for mastery not just recall. He also advised to see a psychiatrist to honestly look at attention problems that I had ignored for years. I followed his advice, started medication and got extended time on the exam. He was also deeply committed in my success after passing the EPPP. He provided help with other professional development hurdles. I am grateful to Dr.Haran who helped me get past the last step in my career and I would recommend anyone who needs that last push to work with him”.

"Dr. Steve is --Determined. Confrontative. Insightful. Hardworking. Knowledgeable. Real. This study process is intense, but if I had to do this again, it would be with Dr. Steve" - Dr. Boards

DR. TIFFANY BOARDS

I began tutoring with Dr. Steve Haran in October 2019. I passed the EPPP in February 2021 with a 236-point difference from the first time that I took the exam independent of tutoring with Dr. Steve. I remember the first call I had with him, in which he took the time to understand me as a student and a person, but most importantly, I remember him ending the call stating, “You will pass the EPPP.” My perseverance and hard work combined with Dr. Steve’s knowledge and the pride that he takes in his work was a recipe for success.
I approached my sessions with Dr. Steve as a course in the EPPP. During my study journey, I had competing life obligations that included homeschooling my children, teaching as a professor and running a private practice. Dr. Steve encouraged me to stay on track with my studying and his homework assignments, and when he saw me moving away from my weekly goals, he confronted me about getting back on track stating, “Tiffany, I don’t want to be doing this with you five years from now.” I admire that Dr. Steve was not afraid to place some fire under me, as it demonstrated that he genuinely cared about my wellbeing as I moved through the study process. Dr. Steve’s wellness checks included inquiries about my experiences with anxiety /attention difficulties and helping me to effectively manage these challenges so it would not interfere with the information that I needed to retain.
Dr. Steve knows how to confront when needed, he is aware of the importance of mental wellbeing during the study course, and most importantly, he is truly knowledgeable about the content in the EPPP. He spends time looking up additional information that is applicable to the exam and attends educational seminars and conferences to enhance his knowledge. I most enjoyed his original ways of remembering the terms and receiving supplementary information on research beyond the study materials to encourage me to think about the concepts on the EPPP. I appreciate Dr. Steve’s ability to help me understand that I needed to look past just memorization of the facts, but in addition to have a deeper understanding of how to integrate the concepts.

In summary, Dr. Steve is --Determined. Confrontative. Insightful. Hardworking. Knowledgeable. Real. This study process is intense, but if I had to do this again, it would be with Dr. Steve because I spent years of studying on my own, and it was not until I had the “Dr. Steve Experience” that I could finally gain an understanding of many of the terms that were difficult for me prior to working with him. His ability to break down the information is amazing—he truly is amazing, and it is an honor to recommend my tutor, my coach, my friend to assist others with passing the EPPP. - DR. TIFFANY BOARDS

" If you are looking for a tutor and someone to help you pass this test once and for all, call Steve. I wouldn’t have passed without him." - Shari Dobrusin

Shari Dobrusin

I want to whole heartedly recommend Dr. Steve Haran as an EPPP tutor. I struggled for many years to pass this test and not until I worked with Steve did I feel the support and structure I needed to succeed.
Steve will teach you the material in a way that is relatable and understandable. Steve’s other gift is that he will guide you to look at what has been holding you back. Everyone comes to this exam with a different set of circumstances and with Steve’s support I was able to look at my past attempts and get real with myself in terms of what it was going to take for me to pass. If you are looking for a tutor and someone to help you pass this test once and for all, call Steve. I wouldn’t have passed without him.

"Dr. Haran helped me develop a strategy on how to approach the EPPP questions and related anxiety" - Christin H.

Christin H.

I worked with Dr. Haran for approximately 2.5 months and was able to increase my score significantly. His groups, as well as working with him one-on-one, were helpful in gaining a deeper understanding of the material and making connections. In addition to the support with the content, Dr. Haran helped me develop a strategy on how to approach the EPPP questions and related anxiety. I highly recommend working with him! In retrospect, this wasn’t just an investment to pass the EPPP, but it was also an investment in myself as I expanded my knowledge immensely. Christin H.

I came across Dr. Haran's name when I was studying for the EPPP (the first time). One of my friends had worked with him and said how great he was. I had done really well in grad school (4.0 student) and thought, Nah, I'm good, I don't need any help with this, and discarded his phone number. Fast forward to my failure on that first try. Ouch, that was a very humbling experience. I had shared my sad experience with an EPPP Facebook group that I was in and I was once again urged to contact Dr. Haran. I decided it couldn't hurt. I called Dr. Steve. He was swift to respond and we set up a phone consult. Admittedly I was nervous to talk about my failure but he was kind, empathic, genuine, and really seemed to know his sh*t. I set up a couple of individual tutoring sessions as well as jumped into the weekend Zoom group sessions. I learned more in a few sessions with Dr. Steve than I had learned in months of studying. Very quickly I had a new strategy that was motivating and helped me to feel much more confident and secure in how I was approaching the test this second time. I am so happy and proud to announce that I passed on my second try with my score jumping up 150 points. Thank you so much, Dr. Steve, I am grateful for your expertise and support in helping me get to the other side.

"Steve is a great tutor and a mentor, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help me in this journey." - Lilit Asulyan, Psy.D.

Lilit Asulyan, Psy.D.

Before I met Steve, I had been studying and failing the EPPP on my own for close to ten years. I followed the advice of everyone around me and could not understand why I was failing. I failed several times and blamed it mostly on anxiety and English as my second language. I met Steve in 2018 and have been studying with him ever since. With his help, we were finally able to figure out that it was not my anxiety or English, it was that I did not know the material as well as I thought I did. I had been studying the wrong way for close to ten years. With Steve’s help, I was able to really fine tune my studying and really get to the bottom of my knowledge base. He had many heart to heart’s with me regarding being honest with myself. He was always very straight with me and did not sugar coat anything, which I needed that. I worked with him individually and in groups weekly. The groups helped a lot, but what pushed me to pass was the individual sessions. He tailored each week’s study sessions with me to what I needed. He has the most creative ways of remembering things and helped me make connections. He encouraged me to trust my gut and have confidence. He was more than a tutor for me. He helped me build my confidence back up after failing several times which helped me pass this time around. I cannot thank Steve enough. He has been a tremendous help and without him, I would have continued to study the way I was all those years and fail over and over again. He is a great tutor and a mentor, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help me in this journey.

"Our meeting gave me confidence that I could extract the information out of my brain as I was taking the test."

Celine McNelis-Kline

I wanted to thank you again for your assistance through my study process to master EPPP content. Your online workshops were helpful to understand how all the content domains overlap and how questions can represent multiple content areas at one time. It also helped me to know what I needed to delve deeper into which is what I did.

Also, meeting with you personally in a coaching session was really instrumental to my success. Our meeting gave me confidence that I could extract the information out of my brain as I was taking the test. It helped me trust my knowledge and intellect. I cannot thank you enough. It is important to be around positive people when going through this process and you were one of those people for me.

"He provided tools, tips, and tricks that helped my approach for the EPPP" - Sadaf Salout

Sadaf Salout

“I had been studying for the EPPP exam for several months and my colleague recommended I take group tutoring sessions with Dr. Haran. I’m so glad I listened to her and took his group tutoring sessions as he was very thorough in the material and was straight to the point with what needed to be studied for the exam. Six weeks before my exam I decided to take private tutoring sessions with Dr. Haran, to get more one-on-one time, and that was the best decision I made. Dr. Haran would explain most of the material through real life examples that made it easier to recall during the exam. He provided tools, tips, and tricks that helped my approach for the EPPP. It was my first time taking the EPPP, and without Dr. Haran’s help, I wouldn’t have been able to pass this. Thank you Dr. H!” - Sadaf Salout

"I like to call him The Michael Jordan of the EPPP" - Ashley White

Ashley White

I highly recommend working with Dr. Steve! I like to call him The Michael Jordan of the EPPP…. He is tough on his students and tells it like it is, but he does it because he truly cares about his students and wants to see them beat this tough exam. Dr. Steve was able to help me better understand the concepts on the exam, gave me clever ways to remember things, and helped me to rebuild my confidence after I had failed it the 1st time (before working with Dr. Steve). After 4 months of studying with Dr. Steve, I took the exam a 2nd time, scored 70 points higher than my 1st attempt and I was able to pass the exam... All thanks to Dr. Steve! - Ashley White

"If you are taking the exam for the first time or the 10th time, you will want Dr. Haran in your corner." Melissa Prusko

Melissa Prusko

I wish I had found Dr. Haran when I attempted the EPPP for the first time! He truly is a God-send. I had tried other test preparation companies and coaches, and none came close to what Dr. Haran was able to do for me and my preparation. He exclusively works with PrepJet material: they are the most up-to-date. Dr. Haran is skilled and knowledgeable not only about the content of the EPPP but also the process. He is direct and honest, which is so needed in this process. You have to be honest with yourself: what you know, don’t know, where you need help, and what factors are impacting your preparation and performance. I cannot recommend Dr. Haran enough. If you are taking the exam for the first time or the 10th time, you will want Dr. Haran in your corner. Melissa Prusko

"Steve is able to explain domain concepts in a very practical and understandable manner. " Joey Aguilar, CA

Jose (Joey) Aguilar, CA

“After previous attempts of taking the EPPP and failing I decided to contact Steve for tutoring. This was the best approach and I wish I would have done it sooner. I met with him for an individual session once a week and also participated in his group sessions. I found both to be very helpful and informative. Steve is able to explain domain concepts in a very practical and understandable manner. I would highly recommend working with Steve to anyone who is looking for a tailored study approach. After working with Steve I was able to pass the EPPP and I truly believe that his tutoring style is what helped me succeed.” Joey Aguilar
