I was assigned to Aubri as my private tutor. The first session we spent analyzing a test I took prior to the first session, which would show where I needed improvement. As for most folks, it was my quantitative that needed improvement. Aubri then worked through the basics of the quant section with me, and discovered a few things that were tricking me up. She helped me to understand what I was doing wrong, how to correct it, and how to eliminate future mistakes.

Aubri is enthusiastic and passionate about her work, and it showed through in the private tutoring session. I highly recommend private tutoring to anyone who is looking to get the extra edge on their GMAT score.

Princeton Review course review (BALI NAGAR, Raja Garden)

This review is for:  GMAT Private Tutoring | Location:  New Delhi, India |

This is my first post, and I wanted to write this especially for people who are looking to take guidance from Princenton Review Gmat course. This happened with a month back (at PR'S Bali Nagar branch in Delhi), and I would never want somebody else to experience this. Below is an email I wrote to Princeton Review, and following was Princeton Review's reply.

Hello to team Princeton Review,

I have been following Princeton Review for a long time for academic help in different phases of my life. I have always been a firm believer about the services offered by Princeton Review. It was only because of this reason that I joined your Gmat coaching center in Delhi (BALI NAGAR, RAJA GARDEN). But unfortunately except your content (which was also very BASIC), there was nothing much to gain here. The verbal tutor (SAPNA DUDEJA) initially showed a keen interest on bringing me on board but then the tutor gradually failed to even stand up as a dependable, cooperative, & a knowledgeable faculty.

I spend Rs. 26000 on one-to-one verbal tuition only--but I was only given 2 classes (one-to-one) while the rest I was suggested (rather pushed by the verbal tutor) to move into a group as it was convenient for her. All this was washed in mere 14 days. The verbal tutor had last comments in the following manner: "Your classes are over! You will have to pay more to get more no. of hours here."

I am not writing this because I want to make a point but rather because it is about a student's future which is on stake here. I will never want anybody else to suffer the way I suffered.

Moreover Princeton Review is a big and a dependable name; your services do not match the essence here, at all.

Sorry about that.

Thank you.

Guys they never got back to me. Anyhow I wasn't expecting much from them after this sour experience. Yet an apology or some kind of consideration would have been great.

I beg to differ on the above statement......I have also studied at Princeton and took classes at princeton rajagarden from Sapna Dudeja. I scored 690 on my GMAT. After finishing of with the course I was given the doubt sessions as a 1 on 1 without any additional charge. In fact this was my second attempt for GMAT and the classes for that were given as well without any additional charge. So putting a blame on the faculty because of your lack of abilities is not a good idea. And if they are charging extra, you could have clarified from the HO rather than putting the blame on the faculty quality as the instructions are given by the center head and not by the faculty. The study material of Princeton and the student portal are useful tools for gauging the score improvements and have helped me to score well on my gmat. So I would recommend everyone to go for THE PRINCETON REVIEW and meet the trainers and then decide for yourself.

Excellent Private Tutoring

As an attorney who works full time, the private tutoring offered by Princeton Review was exactly what I needed. My tutor was willing to meet with me from 7:30-10:30 pm to work around my schedule. Having a very firm grasp on verbal but needing a serious brush up in math after not taking a math class in 10 years, the private tutoring allowed me to work at my pace and skill level and focus on areas in which I needed the most help.

Jason is a fantastic tutor who is able to understand a person's specific learning styles and caters to those styles. He is patient and friendly. The tutoring process was useful and for the most part I felt I got my money's worth. The main criticism I had was that I was taking the test just before the new version was released, but the online tools still only had 5 practice tests of the old version while offering nearly a dozen new version practice tests.

I initially enrolled at TPR with the idea that having someone to whom I was answerable - would make me more focused towards my GMAT preparation.
If I remember correctly, my diagnostic GMAT score was 550.

I thought hard work would be enough to get me past 700, but I was wrong.

Immense credit goes to the teachers at TPR who guided me and helped me with issues that were unique to my style. Their guidance was useful, not only for GMAT prep, but also for understanding the nuances of the application process.

I especially found the "booster sessions" provided, very useful as these helped me identify the flaws in my process of approaching and understanding questions.

But more than their technical inputs, the confidence and encouragement that my trainers infused me with helped a great deal.

I still remember my trainer saying that he was willing to pay for my 2nd attempt at the GMAT, after I scored 710 - saying that it was under representative of my abilities.

Their faith in my ability, and their nurturing of the same - is what made my experience with TPR truly memorable.

Really do owe TPR one for this!
