Stefan Maisnier, Director of Online Tutoring
Stefan is leading the effort at MyGuru to deliver a uniquely engaging approach to online test-prep tutoring. Using dynamic virtual whiteboarding techniques in tandem with free available videoconferencing tools, Stefan delivers tailored lesson plans and adaptable curricula that build directly on the official textbooks from the testmakers themselves. He is such a believer in the benefits of online instruction that he even recommends eBook versions of the Official Guide to the GMAT and Official Guide to the GRE General Test to build note-taking best practices in homework lessons that will pay dividends when taking computer-based exams. He is also expanding MyGuru's session recording and lesson summary capabilities (as digital documents and/or full-length videos) to allow students access to all of their instruction in perpetuity for review, and acts as the lead online trainer for MyGuru by guiding a team of our best tutors to deliver effective online tutoring.
Stefan holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communication from the University of Southern California and a Master's degree in Journalism from Northwestern University. He has scored in the 99th percentile or higher for the variety of standardized tests, including the ACT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MAT, and SAT, that he has taught for more than a decade. In fact, at a previous test-prep employer, he was once voted best tutor in the Midwest region based on student feedback. His engaging style, perhaps honed through his time producing college and professional sports at ESPN, has worked for hundreds of students from high schoolers looking to beat the ACT or SAT to undergrads and professionals looking to get into top tier graduate schools such as the University of Chicago, Harvard University, and Yale University.
Pending his availability, which often books two to four weeks in advance, Stefan can be available upon request to personally deliver:
