Please recommend me a private tutor in NYC [#permalink] New post 23 Dec 2012, 14:36
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 ;(
