Private GRE Tutoring

GRE tutoring from MyGuru is a customized experience consisting of several practice tests, 15 hours of customized, 1-1 instruction from a recognized expert - delivered in your home, local library, or coffee shop.

We also offer GRE tutoring by the hour, or in 5, 10, or 15 hour packages. Sessions are available in Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, New York and several other cities – or online using a virtual whiteboard.

We use official practice tests to track progress and follow a GRE tutoring process that is tailored to every student. Before the first session, students are asked to purchase the Official Guide to the GRE General Test and complete a practice test to identify strengths & weaknesses.  The first session involves a review of this diagnostic test, an overview of each section and question type covered on the GRE, and development of a customized study plan. This is followed by a series of sessions in which strategies for each section of the GRE are reviewed & practice problems are completed.

Customized, 1-1 Expert Instruction

Our base hourly rate for private GRE tutoring is $95, with 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance. That's a long term rate of $95 × 85% = $80.75 per hour. After the first session, if you then choose to continue with a 15 hour package, that's a total cost of $80.75 × 15 hours = $1,211.25.

We encourage you to check around for a better value. Typical hourly rates for 1-1 GRE test prep from an instructor like John can run well above $150 at other companies.
