How do I know this will work for me?
The short answer is that I have been doing this for years and my methods and materials have been battled tested at UCLA and among hundreds of private students. I have a long track record of helping students, just like you, get the scores they need to get into their first choice schools – I’m confident I can help you too! I also offer a money back guarantee. If our first sessions doesn’t absolutely knock your socks off – I won’t charge you for it and there is no obligation to take more sessions.
What is your background?
I’ve been coaching standardized tests for years both as a private tutor and as a test prep instructor at UCLA. I’ve always been passionate about teaching. I concentrated in teaching in undergrad and earned my teaching certificate from Grinnell College. Then I taught myself how to ace the GMAT when I went to Wharton for my MBA. After that, I couldn’t help myself – I dove in and figured out the best ways to teach people how to ace the GMAT, GRE, SAT and ACT. I just love this stuff.
How much will I have to study?
The unfulfilling answer to that question is…it depends. If you’re targeting a top 5% – 10% score, your competition is studying between about 15 – 20 hours a week (we know!). You might or might not have to study that much to hit your desired score. Practice is a huge driver of your score – so for most people, the more they practice, the higher their score. And that’s a good thing – it means that most of your success is in your control!
Do I have to buy a certain number of sessions?
Absolutely not. The whole idea of private tutoring is to pinpoint the areas you need help with and bring your score up to hit your goals.
How many sessions do people usually take?
That really depends – everyone is different. I’d say most people, more or less, take about 10 – 12 sessions on the quant and about 8 – 9 sessions on the verbal. But again, these sessions are customized to meet your individual needs so the number of sessions you need will vary.
