Hello,

I'm looking for a good tutor in NYC. I've had someone recommend me a great tutor however his rate is $175 per hour, which quiet frankly is a bit high for me. Now If $175 is really the going rate though, then I may as well go for it as getting close to 700 is VERY important to me. Ive seen some places charge $225 per hour!

Thanks for your help

Yes, the going rate is close to $200 per hour and the rates you got are decent.
You can check with MGMAT or Veritas prep offer (about $200/hr).

However, you can get much more out of 5-7 hours with a tutor than a 30-hour class since you can cover probably 50-80 of material on your own and need help with only a few features/areas. If you need help everywhere, then the best bang for you buck is an in-person class which NYC does not lack :)

See this list for the best instructors we have: http://gmatclub.com/reviews/highest-rat ... nstructors
There are 2 in Manhattan (MGMAT and Veritas Prep that show up in top 10). I bet they probably tutor too.

Yeah, the bad news is that $175 is arguably on the lower side for the best tutors in NYC. I used to live in NYC and could recommend a couple of independent tutors there, but they all charge somewhere in the $150-$250 range. At least the tutor you found is cheaper than Princeton Review, though--last time I checked, they were charging $350 for an hour with one of their "premier" tutors! Ouch. And they used to charge $450 a couple of years ago. Crazy, right?

You could also try craigslist and gmatix.com if you haven't already looked in those places. You might get lucky and find a diamond in the rough who hasn't figured out how high the market rates are yet.

Good luck! When you get to a 700+, you'll hopefully feel good about whatever money you ended up investing in the GMAT. :)

Hey -

You still looking for a tutor/course? I would definitely recommend Tutor the People - just took a 6 week course (private one-on-one for way less than Kaplan/PR/etc...was only $70/hr) - and my score went up drastically. My tutor Sean scored in the 99th percentile and was extremely attentive to the areas that I needed to improve on in order to achieve a high score. Plus they donate 5% of the cost to Children of Promise - a non-profit that mentors and provides tutors to underprivileged children - which is pretty cool!

I just checked out Tutor the People's website, and am interested...

Can you provide any further insight into how Sean was? I'm aiming for a 700+ score but have only been scoring in the mid-600's ish ;(

Hi poitier4,

I have a few questions about your studies so far:

1) What is your goal score?
2) How long have you been studying?
3) What materials have you been using?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

hi guys, can you suggest me some good online tutoring services? I am looking for good online GMAT tutor at reasonable prices. I have all study material and subscription of online full length tests.

all I want is a good tutor at convenient pricing. I would prefer tutors who can give a demo session. Have been cheated by classes of one service provider already.

Hi TimMclean,

From your post, it sounds like you've done some studying already, so I'd like to know a bit more about those studies and your timeline/goals:

1) How long have you been studying?
2) What materials have you used?

3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options beyond 1-on-1 tutoring. Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at out site (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

The issue here is location--the cost of living in NYC is quite astronomical. I've been tutoring GMAT in San Diego/online for 16 years now, and my rates are still comparable with the average NYC tutor.

If NYC test-takers are willing to be tutored via Skype, then they can easily find lower rates.

For example, I bet HanoiGMATtutor could have helped. : )

San Diego is pretty expensive too, though a much better place to live and work than NYC. I think you chose your location wisely, mcelroytutoring ! And when someone from NYC needs your help, you can do online sessions, so you have virtually nothing to lose. ;)

My rates are low -thanks for reminding everyone- because I now live in SE Asia where the cost of living is low. If I lived in NYC, I'd have to charge a lot more...

Some students do strongly prefer a tutor that they can meet in person though, and I hope this thread can provide information on such tutors. In a huge city like NYC, I am sure they exist!

In-person is overrated, in my opinion! The only issue is time zone concerns, which can be managed in most cases. I can be just as helpful over Skype, if not more, given the technologies at my disposal. But people want what they want.

Yes, San Diego is far less expensive than NYC, with far nicer weather...I'm a happy Californian for sure. : ) Southern California is not exactly a mecca for GMAT tutors, but it's a great place to live if you can afford it. The average GMAT tutor in NYC charges about as much as does the most expensive GMAT tutor here in California, and we're 3 hours earlier, so I can tutor the night owls on the East Coast and still be home in time for a late dinner.
