    Our Tutors are Superhuman

    In recent years, GMAT tutoring has become a commodity with meager score increases and generic study plans. We hold ourselves to a different standard. At Tutor the People we pride ourselves on providing personalized GMAT test prep based on the needs of the individual student. We hire tutors who not only have scored in the top percentiles on their own GMAT, but are human beings who know exactly what you’re going through. All of our tutors understand exactly what it takes to crush the GMAT, and they’re here to guide you on your own journey.

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!!
Megan L. GMAT
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.
