The ultimate GMAT Private Tutoring Comparison – COMPARE & SELECT THE BEST

Private tutoring is by far the best way to prepare for the GMAT. It leads traditionally to the biggest GMAT score improvement. Of course, it has a high price as some test prep companies charge up to $250 per hour. The lessons will be tailored on your needs and you will have a GMAT expert who assists you during the entire preparation. In the most private atmosphere possible you will get guidance and live in-person interaction.

This thread compares 23 hours in-person private tutoring offers of the leading test prep companies on gmatclub.com.

In our opinion we took the most important factors into consideration: These are:

    - How many GMAT practice test are included
    - Is there a 50 points GMAT score or FULL REFUND (no course re-taking) guarantee included
    - Are the tutors GMAT experts who scored in the 99th percentile
    - Is it possible to get a trial hour
    - Price

The following table compares these factors and gives you an overview!

More information about the price calculation:

We compared 23 hour packages because it is the most popular package of Optimus Prep and is an appropriate amount of hours for most students. Many companies don’t offer 23 hour packages but 20 hour packages (each company has different packages which makes it hard to compare). In this case we took the total price for 20 hours, divided it by 20 and multiplied it with 23 to get the best possible estimate. For example, 20 hours of online private tutoring at ManhattanGMAT cost $4,600. This is equal to $230 per hour.

Therefore, 23 hours would cost $5,290 ($230 x 20 hours).

The following overview will list the price range of online private tutoring per hour for each company. Usually the more hours you take the lower is the rate:

Princeton Review:

$135-$275/hr (depending on the tutor)

Veritas Prep:

$193-$245/hr (12 hour vs. 36 hour package)

Kaplan:

$142-$186/hr (15 hour vs. 35 hour package)

Manhattan GMAT:

$225-$250/hr (5 hour vs. 25 hour package)

Optimus Prep:

$130-$150/hr (12 hour vs. 34 hour package)

do you offer any demo class before enrolling?

is your fee negotiable?

Do you provide online tutoring classes too or only face to face classes?

Dear TimMclean,

Thank you for your message.

You can arrange a free and non-committal online trial hour with a tutor.

Please send us an email to customercare@optimus-prep.com where you suggest a few possible meeting times.
