How Private Tutoring works:

All Online Private Tutoring takes place via Adobe Connect. Once enrolled, our academics team will assign you an expert tutor based on your needs. You'll begin by taking a diagnostic test, which will help you and your tutor better understand your strengths and weaknesses before you get started on your tuition. You and your tutor will create a tailored schedule and best decide how you want to maximize the hours of your tutoring package.

Spaces with tutors are limited. We recommend that you book your tutoring sessions at least 2-3 weeks in advance to secure your place.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

After you sign up, you will need to take the diagnostic exam and start any classroom component first and start the tutoring once you have that grounding in the basics. 

If you want private tutoring because you can't do a group course, be aware that you will have a significant amount of work to do in between your sessions, and so you might not want to do more than 2 sessions of 2 hours each, per week.

If you’re not sure how to structure your private tutoring session, don’t worry! First complete the diagnostic exam, then meet with your tutor for that first session (1-2 hours), get the homework, and see how you feel. You can make a decision with your tutor about what the best structure and schedule will be for you. Your tutor will also review the diagnostic with you and create a study plan that suits your needs. 

Beyond your general availability (i.e. evenings, day-times, weekends) you’re free to schedule sessions directly with your tutor and adjust the pace to how you’re progressing.

How long are the tutoring sessions?

We recommend tutoring session be between 90 minutes to 2 hours long, and usually meeting no more than 2 times a week, but it depends on what you want, really. 

How long does it take to match me a tutor?

In general, it can take up to 10 days. However, the more flexible you are in terms of availability the quicker we are likely to match them a tutor.

Can I meet a tutor?

No, however, we have tutor bio's on the website if you want to know their background. All of our tutors are required to have scored in the 90th percentile or above on the GMAT, and they are all put through a rigorous training process making sure that they know how to convey the strategies to students of all levels. They are also extremely engaging and passionate about helping students grow their confidence with the test. You will definitely be in good hands.

How much time do I need to prep?

We recommend 2-3 months (120-150 hours). Then allow for about 2 weeks to review before your actual test day. Also, make sure the day before the test you take a break from studying to let everything you've learned soak in.
