Mo has been tutoring with MyGuru since 2011, and has helped high-school, undergraduate, and graduate students with a variety of math, science, and engineering courses as well as preparation for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, and GRE. Click here for more about Mo.

Apart from Mo, we have a great staff of the best tutors available. Our typical tutor has:

  • 3-10+ years of tutoring experience with excellent feedback from students
  • scored in the 95th percentile or above in each section of the standardized tests they are teaching

Rakhi A., specifically, is one of our most impressive and qualified tutors in the Austin area. Her credentials are as follows:

  • Received a BA in Applied Math and Philosophy as well as Pre-Med at Barnard College of Columbia University.
  • She has taken seven AP exams and achieved the highest score possible, 5, on all but two (where she received 4's).
  • High standardized test scores of 2290 (M-800; W-780; R-710) and 31 on the SAT and ACT respectively.
  • Six years experience as a tutor in private, volunteer, and school-based/classroom settings.
  • Rakhi has helped students with test prep and all academic subjects from K-12.

Location

MyGuru tutors will meet you at a mutually convenient location, such as a cafe, your home, or a library, at times that work for you. We do not require you to come to our office or classroom, thus saving you time and money. Our tutors can easily get to most areas of Austin and outlying suburbs. We can also arrange online tutoring if that's your preference.

Our physical address in Austin is:

8600 Brodie Lane, #1221

Austin, TX 78745

Pricing

We pride ourselves on offering exceptional value. We charge between $45 and $85 per hour, depending on the subject and tutor. Prices will vary depending on the subject and distance the tutor has to travel, but you can always expect to pay less than the large corporations for the same or better quality of tutors.
 
To compare, the cost for 1-on-1 tutoring with the same level of high quality tutors with two of our competitors:

- at Kaplan --> $150 to $200 per hour

- at Manhattan --> $200+ per hour

Why pay more?  We charge you for the tutor's time, not for overhead costs that don't contribute to your learning. Check out our Pricing Page for more information.
