MyGuru tutors always meet you at a mutually agreed upon location, such as a cafe, your home or a library.
Why? We do this to save overhead costs, which saves you both time and money. 

We are located in Houston at:

MyGuru - Houston
2400 N. Braeswood Blvd #222
Houston, TX 77030
(281) 715-0662

However, we work with each student independently to determine the most convenient meeting location in and around Houston for both parties.  We want to make the tutoring situation as efficient and convenient as possible.

Again, these are administrative offices only. Almost all tutoring takes place in public locations, students' homes, or online.


We pride ourselves on offering the best value in the business.  In Houston, We charge between $45 and $125 per hour, depending on the subject and tutor. 
To compare, the cost for 1-on-1 tutoring with the same level of high quality tutors in the same areas of Houston, TX with two of our competitors:

- at Kaplan --> $150 to $200 per hour

- at Manhattan --> $200+ per hour

Why pay more for the competition?  We charge you for the tutor's time, not for a bunch of overhead costs.  Check out our Pricing tab for more information.
