Know of a Private Tutor in SF/Bay Area ? [#permalink] New post 28 Jul 2011, 15:41
Hi-
Does anyone know of a good GMAT tutor in San Francisco/Bay Area? The prices that Kaplan and Princeton Review, etc are a bit too high for me and they don't let you do less than the package deal. Any private suggestions out there?
Thanks!

Accepted Prep is a new company in the Bay Area. They charge extremely reasonable rate for GMAT tutoring, $50/hour. Plus, the first hour of tutoring is free if you tutor 10+ hours.

They have a free GMAT event coming up next Thursday, 7-9pm. That would be a good chance to know if you like them to tutor you or not.

I know this reply is a bit late but in case it helps anyone else...

I recently began 1-on-1 tutoring with MyGuru tutors and they're awesome. About the same price for 1-on-1 tutoring as for group tutoring with Kaplan or Manhattan. My tutor has some pretty amazing credentials, as well, given what they charge. If you're looking for solid value, I'd highly recommend them.

I used Josh Jones. He's in SF and he's awesome! I started out with a 620, and after working with him for a month I got to a 730! He's still a little expensive, but definitely way cheaper than all the major companies. I dabbled with a few and I didn't really like the vibe. Josh was really friendly and felt more like working with a neighbor.

Btw to get back to the original post, a big reason why they don't let you do less than the package deal is because they don't want their tutors to steal the students. Companies take a really big cut, but when you work with an independent tutor, they keep all of it, minus their advertising expenses. I preferred to cut out the middle, go straight to the source, ya know?

Please visit the following link for more information: http://optimus-prep.com/gmat-private-tutoring-online

There are cheaper solutions (like our 60+ hours on demand video course for only $299) however our tutors scored in the 99th percentile of the GMAT and thus belong to the top 1% worldwide!
