The Student: Holly

A young professional working long hours, Holly was looking to break the 700 barrier on her GMAT, with a particular focus on improving her GMAT Quant score.  After doing a significant amount of research on GMAT tutors in Chicago, she settled on MyGuru due to the quality of our tutors and our boutique, customized feel (her words).

The Tutor: Jim 

Jim has undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Physics from Cornell University and a PhD in Physics from the University of Chicago.  He's been a physics and math tutor in Chicago for over 15 years, and regularly does ACT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT test prep as well.  His specialty is Quant, but he helps students with all sections of these tests. 

Results 

Not only did Holly break the 700 barrier, she scored a 760 - an excellent score that sets her up well for admission into the top MBA programs in the U.S.
