Hi everyone!

I would like you to share some thoughts with me on how to chose the right GMAT verbal tutor.

Right now I live in London and honestly I am not concerned with verbal score since I am applying to Finance, so the Unis told me that they want a high quant socre, verbal is not important. But still, I'd like to get a nice verbal, I mean a 700+ always looks better than a 630 or so, right?

My profile:

I speak 4 languages fluently, never had any issues what so ever with any language related subject, always scored the highest in class, scored 110 on TOEFL iBT.

However no matter how much I study, I can't get pass 50% on verbal GMAT. I scored 29,27,26 on my 3 official GMATs. I studied with Manhattan books and I took eGMAT verbal course online. All useless. I can't understand how is this possible and what the test wants from me. I am very good at languages (modesty aside) so what's up with GMAT?

How do I chose a tutor? Does it have to be a guy with a PHd in linguistics?
Does it have to be someone specialized in Verbal? (so no quant teacher, verbal only)
What sort of questions do I have to ask the guy to determine if he she is good on the first lesson?

Thank you!

Speaking as a GMAT tutor who specializes in Verbal, the best questions are exactly the ones you're asking. Tutoring is an expensive proposition, so asking a tutor why they're not only a good choice, but a better choice than the millions of alternatives out there is always a smart move. Tying into your last question, you should ask the tutor how they know when they're doing a good job. The ability to self correct is vital.

I used wyzant for a general GMAT tutor (both quant and verbal) and was very happy with the outcome. You can also find tutors who focus solely on verbal on their platform and the price point is relatively low compared to a lot of other services. Hope this helps!

Cheers!
