Private GRE Test Prep Tutoring
We offer customized GRE instruction both in-person and online. Through our online tutoring platform with no sign-in videoconferencing and a live whiteboard tool, we also offer a fully-recorded premium tutoring or small group GRE prep. In addition, our GRE instructors have more experience than almost any other test prep provider, yet our GRE tutoring rates are generally 50% lower than most of major GRE prep companies.
We offer discounts for each of our offerings when committing to a curriculum of 20 or 40 hours up-front, but our base hourly tutoring rate has no minimum hours requirement. This approach provides flexibility to allow an expert to build a customized study plan for every student while functioning as a coach, tutor, and mentor.
In-Person & Online GRE Instruction Options and Tutoring Rates
We offer in-person GRE tutoring in a growing number of cities (including Chicago, New York, and Boston) because we do recognize that some students simply prefer to meet a tutor in-person. However, we recommend online tutoring because it encourages best practices for the computer delivered GRE, while offering more convenience and functionality.
For students seeking a truly immersive GRE learning experience, our premium online tutoring includes full session recording and a 24/7 live private whiteboard where students can leave notes for their instructor between lessons. The whiteboard will then notify your teacher about the note, with responses posted to the whiteboard within one business day. Of course with all online tutoring offerings, a .PDF document capturing the whiteboard notes is emailed after each session for continued reference - a unique study resource not available through in-person instruction.
Discounts of greater than 15% off the above base rates are available when you invest in packages of hours in advance. We also offer a ~20 minute free introductory phone call (for in-person tutoring) or virtual meeting (for online tutoring) with your likely tutor for you to share more details on your situation and ask questions before paying for a initial hour.

How does MyGuru's online GRE tutoring work?
We believe our approach to online instruction provides a more intuitive and more personalized experience than anything else in the online GRE prep market. After each session every student has 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 study notes and GRE strategies specifically tailored to you.
- Students only need to click a link from their instructor to launch a video conference where both tutor and student can react to verbal and non-verbal cues
- All GRE test taking strategies are demonstrated by our expert tutors on a shared whiteboard
- Premium online GRE lessons are hosted as digital recordings for later review at any time
- 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)
In our view, online GRE tutoring isn't just comparable to face-to-face tutoring, it's better.
