What We Do
We offer private tutoring to high school and college students, as well as 1-1 test prep for the ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT and MCAT. We can help with professional exam prep as well, such as the CPA, CFA, or even the USMLE. MyGuru tutors work with you in your home or at local libraries or coffee shops – we haven’t invested in expensive classroom or office space. Our small team of independently contracted tutors has:
- Undergraduate and graduate degrees from some the nation’s most selective colleges
- 3+ years of private tutoring and/or teaching experience
- Standardized test scores in the 90th percentile at a minimum
- Been personally interviewed by a MyGuru founder
We seek to occupy a unique “niche” between hiring an individual tutor and working with a high priced tutoring or test prep agency. Our test prep packages combine simple, freely available and low priced test prep materials with our expert tutors to create simple yet powerful customized tutoring.
“What we do” is of course customized based on the age and situation of the student:
At the high school level, we work with both students and parents to set objectives and track progress. We’ve helped students in a variety of different situations – from last minute preparation for advanced concepts on an AP BC Calculus exam, to longer term relationship with students struggling to adapt to and perform well in high school. We make every effort to match the student with the right tutor, and often the tutor-student relationship turns into a student-mentor relationship. MyGuru tutors have even attended parent-teacher conferences with the parent to provide perspective on a student’s progress.
For college students, our local presence sometimes allows us to match our students with upperclassmen, TAs, and even PhDs who have in-depth knowledge of the subject – and sometimes the specific class at your school. We work with students across a wide range of college level coursework, from creative writing to mechanical engineering.
Out test prep services are unique. They represent a rare combination of affordability and quality. Our tutors have years of experience teaching advanced methods for getting higher scores on standardized tests. Many have years of experience with large, nationally known test prep firms. Because MyGuru doesn’t invest in one-size-fits all strategies or expensive physical classroom space, we offer the most tailored and affordable tutoring available. We currently offer test prep for the: ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT.
