Private Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Tutoring

Taking the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) can be stressful on students continuing on to graduate school.  Private, 1-1 MAT tutoring provides both the knowledge and confidence one needs to succeed on this graduate school admissions test. Tutors work with students to develop a customized study plan that covers key facts and concepts as well as test taking strategies, helping them build on their strengths and address their weaknesses.

About the MAT

The Miller Analogies Test is a 60 minute test designed to examine an individual's capability to solve problems stated as analogies in order to determine admission into graduate school. A MAT score is intended to reflect candidates' analytical thinking skills in various academic subjects. There are currently over 500 Controlled Testing Centers (CTCs) that administer the MAT; each determines its own testing schedule.

Our Approach to 1-1 MAT Tutoring

An MAT Test Prep package from MyGuru is a customized experience consisting of a Barron's MAT Exam Study Guide and 5 to 15 (more or less can also be done) hours of one-on-one instruction from a recognized expert (delivered in your home or a local library).  Students receive a prep book prior to their first session & complete a diagnostic practice test to identify strengths & weaknesses.  The first session involves a review of this diagnostic test, an overview of each section of the test, and development of a study plan.  This is followed by a series of one or two hour sessions in which strategies for each section of the test are reviewed & practice problems are completed. 

Our typical package provides a total of 15 hours of customized, 1-on-1  test prep, including the review of practice tests the student completes on their own time between sessions to measure and track progress.  Of course, we also offer hourly MAT tutoring – just fill out the form below or email us at  to discuss your situation.

Student Feedback

"Stefan is amazing at understanding my specific needs as a student with dyslexia. He takes the time to figure out the way I have interpreted a question and what exactly made that question difficult for me. Having worked with many tutors in my life, it was greatly appreciated that Stefan immediately knew how to accommodate me without having to spend a lot of time explaining my learning disabilities.

From the moment I submitted an initial information request about MAT tutoring, the MyGuru team has been extremely prompt and helpful with their responses. I was immediately assigned a tutor and was able to begin weekly video chat sessions. Additionally, the whiteboard component has been a very effective tool in this process." - Diana K.
