Who We Are

We are a Chicago-based education company providing 1-on-1 tutoring, test prep, & trusted advice in-person in Chicago, New York, Boston, and Minneapolis.  We also provide private, 1-1 online tutoring.

MyGuru was founded by a graduate of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, who spent 2 years as a private economics tutor and undergraduate economics teaching assistant at Indiana.  After IU, Mark spent 7+ years as a business strategy consultant, and went on to earn an MBA from Northwestern University – Kellogg School of Management.  In 2009, having spent the past decade gaining experience with AP classes, the ACT, SAT, and GMAT, the process of applying to college and graduate school, and the ins and outs of private tutoring and test prep services, Mark felt there would be great value in slowly building an elite team of like-minded private tutors.

Our team of tutors is one of the most talented you’ll find – with years of tutoring experience each, degrees from the nation’s top universities, and professional certification as teachers, accountants, lawyers, and even doctors.  Learn more about our tutors here.

We deliver tutoring services in your home, or at local pre-screened locations like a library or coffee shop.  We occupy a unique “niche” between hiring an individual tutor and working with a high priced tutoring or test prep agency.  Our tutors stack up very favorably against the most successful tutoring and test prep companies in the U.S. yet our prices are lower.
