Private GRE Tutoring

A GRE Test Prep Package from MyGuru is a comprehensive solution consisting of a test prep book with several practice tests, 15 hours of customized, 1-1 instruction from a recognized expert - delivered in your home, local library, or coffee shop - and two months of premium access to one of the best sources of self-paced online GRE practice problems, tests, and video lessons from Magoosh.

We also offer GRE tutoring by the hour, or in 5, 10, or 15 hour packages.

Before the first session, students 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 study plan by your tutor.  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

All GRE tutoring or GRE packages are delivered by true experts.  Here is some background on one of MyGuru's Senior tutors, John:

Excellent Value

Our package costs $1,299, which includes:

  • 15 hours of customized, 1-1 instruction from an expert MyGuru tutor ($1,147.50 value)
  • Official Guide to the GRE Revised General Test prep book, from the Educational Testing Service ($35 value)
  • Premium access to Magoosh GRE prep, a powerful source of supplemental online practice questions, full practice tests, and video lessons ($149 value)
  • 20% off any additional hourly tutoring (above the 15 hours)
Our base hourly rate for private GRE tutoring is $90, with 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance.  Then, you save ~5% more by purchasing the package (vs. investing in 15 hours and then purchasing the ETS guide and Magoosh product seperately).   If you're already using Magoosh or have the ETS book, 15 hours of tutoring would cost $90 per hour x 85% x 15 hours = $1,147.50.

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 north of $150 at other companies.
