Private In-Person and Online GMAT Tutoring
We offer highly customized, private GMAT tutoring both in-person and online.
In our view, GMAT prep classes provide little value beyond what's found in self-study materials. Personalized GMAT tutoring provides a superior method of instruction, but the nationally known test prep firms - like Manhattan GMAT, Kaplan GMAT, and Veritas GMAT - have made private tutoring unnecessarily expensive. We believe our approach to online GMAT tutoring in particular provides a more intuitive experience than anything else in the online GMAT test prep market (more info on our online options is below), and is one of the best GMAT prep options available.
Our Approach to GMAT Test Prep
Our GMAT tutoring approach generally begins with a GMAT practice test, followed a diagnostic session which includes a discussion of your target MBA programs, required GMAT score, test date, and previous experience studying for and taking the GMAT. Coming out of this initial session we create a customized GMAT study plan designed to help build upon each student's strengths and address key weaknesses, incorporating official practice GMAT exams to track progress. Because we believe that working with official test prep materials from GMAC.org is important when engaging in GMAT test prep, we leverage the official GMAT prep software as well as the The Official Guide for GMAT Review 2020 Bundle (Official Guide + Verbal Guide + Quantitative Guide).
Do you prefer in-person or online GMAT preparation?
Whether you want to engage in GMAT preparation online or in-person, we can help.
We offer in-person tutoring in a variety of cities (including Chicago, New York, and Boston) as well as online GMAT tutoring. We also offer premium online tutoring in which we record each session in full and students can make notes and leave questions on the whiteboard 24/7 for the instructor. The student then receives an “offline” response via a follow up note on the whiteboard within 24 hours.
We understand that some students prefer seeing a live tutor face-to-face. To both reduce the cost of working with a private GMAT coach and increase convenience for our students, we don’t have any physical locations, so you’d meet with your assigned tutor at a mutually convenient time and place like a local library, coffee shop, or in your home. We do tend to recommend online GMAT tutoring to most of our students. It is more convenient and can be more effective (more on our approach to online tutoring is below).

How much does working with a GMAT tutor cost?
Pricing is slightly different for in-person vs. online tutoring. The base rate for in-person tutoring is $119, while for online it is $109. Premium online GMAT tutoring is $195 per hour. In all cases, in-person or online, premium or not, we then offer 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 our packages. We do also have a refund policy for hours purchased but not used.
Example Online GMAT Coaching Session
Online GMAT prep from MyGuru leverages The Official Guide for GMAT Review 2020 Bundle (Official Guide + Verbal Guide + Quantitative Guide). We recommend the eBook to build good habits, given the GMAT is delivered via computer. After each session our students get two texts to review — The Official Guide and a digital copy of that day's whiteboard filled with notes and tips specifically tailored for them to refer to forever.
Online tutoring requires nothing beyond a laptop, internet, and scratch paper (just like the GMAT!), so computer-based tutoring builds good habits for test day such as writing down process of elimination outlines and taking good notes for reading comprehension rather than simply annotating the text on a physical GMAT Official Guide book.
Students only need a free Gmail or Skype account to begin instructive videoconferencing where both tutor and student can react to verbal and non-verbal cues making each lesson feel like it's being conducted in person.
All GMAT strategies, tactics and techniques are demonstrated on a shared virtual whiteboard where students follow along with the instructor as a guest using nothing more than a laptop and an internet connection
- All GMAT sessions are recorded as digital documents, so students can review lessons to reinforce concepts
For these reasons and more, MyGuru online GMAT tutoring isn't just comparable to face-to-face tutoring, it's often better. To read more about our perspective on online tutoring click here.
