Private Online GRE Tutoring
Working with an Online GRE Tutor is Convenient and Effective
Online GRE tutoring, like our in-person GRE tutoring, leverages the Official Guide to the GRE Revised General Test. We begin with a diagnostic session to help create a manageable study plan that includes a customized curriculum that builds upon each student's strengths and weaknesses.
Our base rate for online GRE tutoring is $95, but we also offer 5, 10, or 15 hour packages which come with discounts of 5, 10, or 15%. That's a long term rate of $95 × 85% = $80.75 per hour, so if you choose a 15 hour package, that's a total cost of $80.75 × 15 hours = $1,211.25.

How Studying Online for the GRE Works
We believe that group GRE classes provide little more than what's found in self-study materials, that 1-on-1 GRE tutoring provides a superior method of instruction, and that the large test prep firms have made 1-on-1 GRE prep virtually unaffordable. We also believe that our approach to online instruction provides a more intuitive experience than anything else in the online GRE prep market. After each session our students have two texts to review - The Official Guide (we recommend the eBook version to build good habits for test day when a paper version of the test won't be available) and a digital copy of that day's whiteboard filled with notes and tips specifically tailored for them to refer to forever. We use official practice tests to track progress and follow a GRE tutoring process that is tailored to every student.
- 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 tactics and techniques are demonstrated by our expert tutors 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 GRE sessions are recorded as digital documents, so students can review lessons to reinforce concepts and approaches.
- Online tutoring requires nothing beyond a laptop, internet, and scratch paper (just like the GRE!), so computer-based tutoring builds good habits for test day such as writing down process of elimination outlines and taking good notes
For these reasons and more, online GRE 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.
