The Math Revolution team has been invaluable in my GMAT preparation, and it was through their hard work and dedication that I was able to increase my quant score from 39 to 50 which raised my score from a 680 to 740!


I had already been preparing for the GMAT several months before I went to Math Revolution and had completed the entire Manhattan Prep Interact course, worked with two different private tutors from Manhattan Prep, completed the entire Veritas Prep Live online course, twice, and all of the accompanying course materials for both programs to no avail.


I am an English Literature and Language major and have worked as an English teacher for the last 5 years, so the Verbal section really did not give me much difficulty, but what set Math Revolution apart from Manhattan Prep and Veritas is that Math Revolution simply taught me all the math I had forgotten since middle school.


In my experience Manhattan Prep taught me a lot of little tricks that I could use for specific questions and Veritas taught me to “logic” my way through math, but both of these approaches were exceedingly exhausting and only provided middling results. For the rest of you Liberal Arts majors, in my experience there is nothing more difficult than 8th grade Algebra on the GMAT so don’t shy away from the calculations. It is much easier to write down a basic algebraic equation than to “consider what it means to be a multiple of 2.”


It is doubtful that anyone coming to Math Revolution will come with a lower ability to do calculations than myself, and the benefit I got from Jae, my tutor, was his ability to very simply and efficiently show me how to create and solve the basic equations the GMAT requires. The man has the patience of a saint as he steps you through the math and reasoning behind the math. Very often I would look down at my half-page-long calculation and compare it with his two-line calculation on the board, and more often his explanations were infuriatingly simple, but that is exactly why you hire a GMAT tutor to explain and show you how to answer the questions in the most simple and efficient way. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I was solving most questions at or under a minute.


A big component of Math Revolution’s teaching philosophy is reviewing and resolving. I would typically resolve a missed question 3-4 times until the steps and the calculations were permanently etched in my memory, and since the type of questions the GMAT tests is quite narrow, you start to see patterns emerge as you continuously review. While my previous tutors and programs also stressed review, none of them held me as accountable for the review as Math Revolution.


I’m not going to lie, for me it was hard work. At one point I was doing an entire practice set a day while reviewing and resolving all of the missed questions from the previous day, but for all of the work I put in I know the Math Revolution team put in more. I hope that your GMAT journey is not as arduous as mine was, but know that whatever effort you put into your studies, Math Revolution will match and exceed. Thank you Jae, Max, and JH for your dedication and reassurance throughout my GMAT journey; I could not have achieved my goal without you all.

I purchased the All-in-One 51 package with 6hr of private tutoring from Math Revolution. I worked with Jae Baek as my tutor for the sessions. I had taken the GMAT previously and was not able to score over a 47 on quant. I wanted to do private tutoring since I had already done a lot of self-study and want personalized attention to help me improve my score. I chose Math Revolution because their score guarantee is one of the highest and they are much more affordable than most other private tutoring options out there. This was a GREAT experience overall - I improved my quant score from a 47 to a 51 in a little over six weeks.

Pros - The private tutoring comes with access to the GMAT club tests and the online video lessons. This provided a perfect study combination as I would do self-study with the online videos and would practice the GMAT club tests and then used my private tutoring time to review the problems I was not able to solve. The Math revolution course combined with the tutoring helped me build confidence as I learned how to tackle some of the hardest problems and also learned how to guess intelligently for problems I didn't know how to solve. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the quant section or by the expensive tutoring prices out there, Math Revolution is a great option to consider. I had used the Manhattan Guides, Magoosh Prep, and the Official Guides but was unable to push my quant score into the 49-51 range until I did the Math Revolution course.

Cons - The only con for this course is that not all tutors are native english speakers so if you are a native english speaker, it is important to be patient. This did not interfere with the math instruction, but good to know for anyone purchasing the course.

Hi, congrats on the great score. I got Q44 on my last attempt. I am thinking of buying this course but there aren't enough reviews. Do you think it would be sufficient if I just bought the online course and not the private tutoring to hit 49-50? Also, what did you use for verbal?

Thanks in advance

I raised my score from 30 to 45 and feel that could have achieved a higher score if I had more time to study. I started with Kaplan then did a Manhattan prep course but there was no way of improving my Quant. The problem was that I had not had any maths for the last 12 years, thus, my maths skills were so low that I did not take advantage of any course . After many tutoring sessions with Hee Jean (and many months of study) I finally re-learned maths almost from scratch and started feeling confident that I could get a high score high in the Quant section. As I said before I got a 45 and I am absolutely convinced that with some more study I could have achieved at least 47-48. Therefore, I strongly recommend tutoring with Hee Jean for people with maths skills. Re-leaning everything will be a painful and time consuming process but there are no silver bullets.

Quant:     

Scored a 740 (Q 49 / V 41) after working with Hee Jean!!! He is an amazing tutor.

Over just 1 month, I did 12 hours of private Skype tutoring with Hee Jean while using his online video program. My score improved 50 points in just that time from working with him, up from 690 (Q 46 / V 38) score 1 month earlier.

As background, I had taken an accelerated 5 week course with one of the big GMAT course firms and had studied intensely on my own for about 3 weeks using that same firm's books. I was disappointed to score a 690 (Q 46 / V 38). During the test, i felt like i was flailing and was very nervous the entire time. The questions all looked different than what i had spent 8 weeks studying following the big firm program.

After the test, a friend of mine recommended Hee Jean and I got in touch with him immediately and we started working together a couple days later.

Hee Jean is a genius, We only did 12 hours of private tutoring but the time was SO EFFECTIVE. He is able to teach entire topics without any reference material and fires through practice questions. No time is wasted. He also gives you all of the notes he takes online during the Skype tutoring session, which is hugely helpful as reference material (and you don't need to waste time taking your own notes while trying to understand the lesson).

Something that really worked for me with Hee Jean is that he tells you exactly how to approach problems. He also recommends you re-learn some of the algebra and use it. This was HUGE for me (and I assure you I am no math genius) and helped a ton because algebra questions actually take up the majority of the first half of the quant GMAT test. In the course I had taken with the big firm, they suggest many different ways and "shortcuts" to solve problems, which quite frankly does not help and did not work for me. With just 2 minutes per problem for 37 questions in the Quant section, I found myself wasting time trying to decide which "shortcut method" to use and then freaking out about the already wasted time. Sounds horrible, right? Hee Jean was totally straightforward about exactly how to tackle each type of question.

Hee Jean also helps you to better understand what types of questions to expect and when during the test. Some of the harder questions (Q 49 50 51) in hindsight are actually easier to solve once you study with Hee Jean because he helps you identify them and how to get past the typical GMAT "trick." This was totally absent in the course i took with the bigger firm.

As far as responsiveness, Hee Jean responds immediately almost always and was available at the times when i needed to work with him (i work in investment banking and needed to meet sometimes late at night or had to cancel last minute & he was always totally understanding). In addition, a few days before my test, he even scheduled extra time with me later one evening and again the next day on short notice.

Lastly, what is interesting is i did not study verbal at all during that month, only quant with Hee Jean. However, my confidence going into the test was so much stronger i had less nerves, which I believe translated to helping me be calmer and more focused during the verbal section.

I cannot say enough about how great of a tutor Hee Jean is, and I attribute all of my math improvement to him. All i can say is definitely go with private tutoring with Hee Jean!! Especially if you are short on time to improve your score like I was.

Through the course I really learned how to take the quant section of the test. My goal was to reach a Q49 and that's what I achieved. Every question that arose during the actual test seemed solvable. The preparation is not complicated, (sometimes the English is a bit questionable -
but nothing that detracted from the information). There are more than enough questions to practice the test thoroughly and if you take the time needed to solve them you will be more than prepared. I highly recommend the course - but try to plan for at least a 3 month intense time period if you want to get through all the material.

I had taken the GMAT first time and achieved a 62 percentile on quant and lost hope on whether I would be able to improve my score. After long hours of web research I found some very positive testimonials about Math revolution and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be the best decision - the methodology of Mr. Hee Jean was very precise, logical, and practical. After all it was just the right way to approach these problems . After months of prep I was able to get the score I wanted - 50 for math. I honestly think it would've been possible without Mr. Hee Jeans help and support

Having tried several other test prep companies and self-studying for over one year, I had trouble raising my quant score above Q48. I almost started to believe that Q48 would be the highest I could ever get because I just did not have what it takes to break the Q49 barrier. A friend suggested that I try private tutoring for a more focused approach to quant training. I had tried MathRevolutions self-study offerings previously, and I really liked how they presented their material. I also liked the fact their tutoring packages were very reasonably priced compared to the exorbitant prices that you might have seen other tutors quote. The tutoring question packs and the review sessions with Hee Jean were extremely valuable in making sure that was prepared for the common curveballs that the test like to throw at you. Hee Jean is obviously very knowledgeable and does a great job of making sure that your limited prep time is spent on the topics that matter the most. I am happy to report that I not only broke the Q48 barrier, but I ended up getting a Q50 score, which I honestly never even dreamt of!

I wholeheartedly recommend MathRevolution tutoring to anyone who might be in need of customized GMAT prep. I would suggest getting your skill level up to a point where your foundational knowledge is crystal clear, and you are ideally above the Q44 threshold to make the most out of the tutoring sessions. If you are at a level below Q44, the tutoring will undoubtedly help you, but it's not the best use of the tutoring time in my opinion. Either way, you can't go wrong with MathRevolution!

I had received a Q43 and IR5 in my first GMAT (710). It was critical for me to increase my quant score to 47+. I initially took 6 hours of private tutoring with Hee Jean, who was amazing and very flexible and professional.

I loved the service so much that I extended my tutoring by another 6 hours. I retook the GMAT after 12 days of tutoring with Hee Jean and scored a Q49 and IR7, unforunately I didn't do so well on Verbal this time and got a 700 overall.

However, I can say with 100% confidence that Hee Jean and Math Revolution's resources helped me achieve +6 on my Q score in less than 2 weeks.

I've been struggling with GMAT quant for many months and I studied on my own. I was hesitant to sign up for a tutor because I thought I could improve on my own. After many months of frustration, I decided to try out Math Revolution. It's the best math course for GMAT Quant. I improved from 44 to 47 in a month. I think I can definitely do even better if I had more time. Hee Jean is a great instructor and I can't thank him enough for helping me improve in such a short timeframe. If you're deciding which quant prep to choose, do choose math revolution!!

The Math Revolution team, especially Hee Jean, has been invaluable in my GMAT preparation. With the help of Math Revolution I have raised my quant from somewhere ~42 (on practice tests) to 49 on the real test. I can't stress enough how much you get when you sign up for a private tutoring with them - they will do an entire diagnostic of your math skills, work with you to build necessary skills, provide with extremely quick responses on any content questions that you have and give you access to their whole online video library + daily quizzes. In other words, if you have any difficulty with the quant part of the test, do work with them! Highly recommended!
