Hello,

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. _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News 2008 - 2017 Rankings progression - New! Just starting out with GMAT? Start here... Need GMAT Book Recommendations?

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!

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

Top Contributor
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!
