GMAT prep is Tiffany’s favorite subject to teach, because the GMAT is essentially a puzzle. A very wordy, 3-hour-long puzzle. She loves helping students realize that in the midst of facing a challenge, you can still have fun.

Frequently Asked Questions/FAQs

Private tutoring is particularly effective for students who prefer strong guidance and customization in their test preparation program. Some students use Private Tutoring as their sole test preparation method, while others sign up for a few tutoring sessions to supplement self study or a course. If you already have a sense of what your strengths and weaknesses are, private tutoring could be a great way to get help creating and executing a study plan specific to you.

After you've purchased hours, you'll receive a link to fill out our tutoring survey with your availability, goals, etc. Once you've filled that out, you can expect to hear from a tutor within 3-5 business days.

All scheduling will take place between you and your instructor directly. Sessions generally last for 2 hours, and most students meet with their tutors once a week. While it may be tempting to schedule multiple tutoring sessions each week, keep in mind that your tutor will be assigning you homework to complete between sessions. You will therefore need adequate time between sessions to complete that work, in order to ensure that you are getting the most out of your time with your tutor.

With online tutoring, you will meet in your tutor’s Zoom Tutoring Room – check out a demo of the interactive online platform here!

You can use private tutoring in a couple of different ways: as your primary preparation, or as a supplement to your current test prep program. You can work through the range of material covered in our Complete Course during your private sessions (with personalized customization), or you can use private tutoring to drill down on specific topics you find challenging. The decision, ultimately, will come down to your specific situation and needs – there is no set tutoring syllabus.

The number of hours you need will also depend on what your goals are and the span of topics you need to cover. Most students who use tutoring as their sole preparation purchase a package of 10 or more hours, which comes with all of our books and online resources. Once you are in touch with your tutor, however, you will be able to discuss with him or her what package will make the most sense for you. Note that you have one year from the date of purchase to use your tutoring hours.

You are welcome to let us know your preference for a particular instructor. We will do our best to accommodate your preference, but we can’t guarantee that the instructor will be able to meet during the times that you’re available.

You will have access to the online resources for 9 months after placing your initial tutoring order. If you purchase a package of 10+ hours, you’ll have access to the expanded suite of online resources for 9 months after paying for the package. Tutoring hours must be used within one year from the date of purchase.
