    Our Tutors are Superhuman

    Nowadays, many people treat GMAT tutoring like a product, with huge companies focused on minimal average score increases. Unsatisfied with the status quo of GMAT prep, Tutor the People was founded with the goal of personalizing GMAT test prep based on the needs of the individual student, not the needs of a focus group. We hire tutors score within the 94th percentile or above on the GMAT, but also have a passion and skill for teaching their students how to recreate their success on test day.

Success Stories
I had a great experience. The staff were super helpful answering all my questions when I was deciding how many hours and what plan to go with, and the ability to have a payment plan really made tutoring accessible for me. My tutor, Julian, was extremely flexible with scheduling and the ability to do sessions over Skype allowed me to work it into my busy life very easily. By working with Julian I was able to increase my GMAT score 50 points, which was instrumental in my acceptance to my first choice business school. Thank you!!

After a long search for a GMAT prep company, I found Tutor the People. I was initially interested because they were a lot more affordable than other prep companies. However, after a personal chat with one of the company's founders, it was apparent they lacked nothing in quality for the bargain. They had a very personal and flexible approach for what I was looking for, and set me up with a tutor to match my needs. All in all, they helped me add nearly 100 points to my GMAT score, and helped me in getting into the top school of my choice.

Our approach

We start off by learning as much about our students as possible. It is crucial that we understand your history with the GMAT and the factors that go into your performance on the GMAT. Some of this information about our students includes:

  • 1
    Are you just now beginning your GMAT prep?
  • 2
    Have you taken the official GMAT exam before?
  • 3
    If not, have you taken a practice test?
  • 4
    How did you score?
  • 5
    Are you struggling with certain sections/problem types?
  • 6
    Do you need help with grasping the content?
  • 7
    Do you need help with test-taking strategy and time management?
  • 8
    What are your best days/times of availability to meet with a tutor?
  • 9
    Do you prefer in-person or online tutoring? (Note, you can use both options)
  • 10
    Have you registered for an upcoming test date, and what is your deadline?

After learning about our students and their specific needs, we then match the student with a hand-selected private GMAT tutor, who best meets their availability and their unique GMAT needs.

When studying 1-on-1 with a private GMAT tutor, the pair creates a flexible and fluid study plan that focuses on the student’s strengths to supplement their areas of improvement. Depending on the student’s schedule, the tutor can meet as often as daily, either online or in-person at the student’s location of choice. The tutors present their proven methods and help you create the best strategy that works for your needs. In addition, the pair studies the body of the test- from the backbone of the language to the multiple choice, reasoning and elimination. There are many factors that go into test-taking, and we take a wholesome approach to helping you achieve your goals.
