Our Core Beliefs about Studying for the GMAT
Group classes provide little new info that isn’t contained in self study materials available at local book stores
1-on-1 tutoring provides a superior method of instruction, making continuous, targeted improvement possible
The name-brand test prep firms have made 1-on-1 test prep virtually unaffordable

Your tutor will assess your starting point and help you develop a customized study plan to help you prepare for the GMAT as efficiently and effectively as possible. Our main goal is obviously for your tutor to help you master the content and get as close to an 800 GMAT score as possible, but we also find our tutors becoming mentors as students embark upon the process of studying for the GMAT and preparing their business school applications.

"I couldn't have asked for a better experience with MyGuru. Prior to MyGuru, I initially used a Manhattan prep self-study program to prepare for the GMAT exam and was able to score a 680. I wasn't satisfied with this score and was looking to push higher up to my goal score of 720.
I worked with Stefan through videoconferencing which was a very easy and convenient way to receive tutoring. I would highly recommend using this option as you can receive tutoring anywhere (Starbucks, work office, home, etc.) and is very useful for people with a full-time job or a busy schedule. Stefan created a customized schedule for me based on my needs and we did a crash course refresher over a month-long period in order to push my score into the higher percentiles. In addition, Stefan provided me with structured assignments and unique test taking tips that were much different than the standard Manhattan prep tips I had learned. I appreciated this different way of thinking as it helped me feel more comfortable with the exam and improved my overall test taking abilities.
Ultimately, I far surpassed my goal score of a 720 and received a 760. I am more than pleased and very appreciative of the help that Stefan and MyGuru provided to me. I highly recommend test takers try MyGuru instead of the general test-taking companies as you get more bang for your buck and a personalized experience which can lead to highly successful results, as shown in my case!" - Lindsey S.
"We spent three months meeting on a weekly basis for 2 hour long private tutoring sessions. He designed a preparation strategy, taught me the methods and strategies for the test, and reviewed diagnostic exams with me...I came into the process with a goal of scoring at least a 700. My first practice test score was a 650, and my score on the exam was a 750. I only sat for the exam once, and relieved to not have to worry about it again. The area in which I needed the most improvement was the quantitative section, and he clearly explained the concepts and applications of them for the GMAT....His personalized study plan ensured that I was spending my time studying as efficiently as possible, which is important because of how much I travel for work." - Charlie V.
"I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of MyGuru's tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points...During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Mark at MyGuru and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend MyGuru. I have no complaints! - Kim M.

Our base rate for private tutoring is $99, but we also offer 5, 10, or 15 hour packages which come with discounts of 5, 10, or 15%. That's a long term rate of $99 * 85% = $84.15 per hour, which is what we always charge for the first session. If you then choose to continue with a 15 hour package, that's a total cost of $84.15 * 15 hours = $1,262.25.
There isn’t a better value in Chicago – one well known national test prep company charges $2,499 for its 15 hour, 1-on-1 tutoring package.
