Private Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Tutoring

Taking the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) can be stressful on students continuing on to graduate school.  Private, 1-1 MAT tutoring provides both the knowledge and confidence one needs to succeed on this graduate school admissions test. Tutors work with students to develop a customized study plan that covers key facts and concepts as well as test taking strategies, helping them build on their strengths and address their weaknesses.

About the MAT

The Miller Analogies Test is a 60 minute test designed to examine an individual's capability to solve problems stated as analogies in order to determine admission into graduate school. A MAT score is intended to reflect candidates' analytical thinking skills in various academic subjects. There are currently over 500 Controlled Testing Centers (CTCs) that administer the MAT; each determines its own testing schedule.

Our Approach to 1-1 MAT Tutoring

An MAT Test Prep package from MyGuru is a customized experience that leverages the Barron's MAT Exam Study Guide and 5 to 15 (more or less can also be done) hours of one-on-one instruction from a recognized expert (delivered in your home or a local library).  Students are asked to purchase a prep book prior to their first session & complete a diagnostic practice test to identify strengths & weaknesses.  The first session involves a review of this diagnostic test, an overview of each section of the test, and development of a study plan.  This is followed by a series of one or two hour sessions in which strategies for each section of the test are reviewed & practice problems are completed. 

Our typical package provides a total of 15 hours of customized, 1-on-1  test prep, including the review of practice tests the student completes on their own time between sessions to measure and track progress.  Of course, we also offer hourly MAT tutoring – just fill out the form below or email us at  to discuss your situation.

Student Feedback

Yelp online MAT review Mar 2018 copy


Our base rate for private MAT tutoring is $99, 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 $99 × 85% = $84.15 per hour. After the first session, if you then choose to continue with a 15 hour package, that's a total cost of $84.15 × 15 hours = $1,262.25.

We encourage you to check around for a better value. Typical hourly rates for 1-1 MAT Test prep from an instructor like ours can run well above $150 per hour at comparable companies.
