I am a math tutor that tutors from elementary to high school kids. I help with ACT prep and high school level math like AP Stats and AP Calculus. My GMAT is not good because I am a very bad test taker. I've tried twice and it didn't work out for me. Will showing that I am a math tutor help overcompensate my low GMAT? If I'm tutoring up to high school level math, will this show admissions that I am good in math, just a bad test taker? I know Stacey Blackman mentioned one way to overcompensate for a low GMAT is to show you have a quant heavy background. Will my tutoring help somehow?

This is a scenario I have never heard, but if it makes an impact it will be a smaller one. The GMAT is the best way to show your quantitative skills. Another way is a look at your transcript, how did you perform in your quant classes in undergrad? These are better ways to showcase this

It won't matter really. You need to get the score.

Best,

Definitely do MBAMATH.COM if you aren't willing to give yourself the time to improve your score. It's a 20-hour self-paced program that the admissions committee takes as proxy for quant skills.
