Tutoring Pricing and Availability

Below you will find more detailed information about our pricing, including our lower India-based pricing, recommended study materials, availability, meeting locations, and tutoring session frequency and timings. If you have unanswered questions, remember that we offer a free phone consultation as described on the main tutoring webpage.


The table below summarizes our tutoring prices. The same price applies for online and in-person tutoring. We accept payment via credit card, personal check, PayPal, and Venmo. We will coordinate with you to securely process your payment after you sign-up for tutoring.

As shown on the tutoring comparison chart, GMAT Genius offers competitive pricing and greater flexibility than the big test preparation companies. You can add additional hours at any time at the specified cost per extra hour. Please contact us to sign-up for tutoring.

The hours in each package represent actual tutoring time. The time that we spend behind the scenes on administration, coordination, and preparation does not count towards your paid tutoring time. Not sure how much tutoring you need? See our recommendations in this FAQ.

Lower Cost India-Based Tutoring

GMAT Genius has partnered with an India-based tutor to offer lower cost online GMAT tutoring. This option may be attractive to those who have budget constraints, who want lots of tutoring hours, or who have lower scoring objectives and therefore don't need premium GMAT tutoring. Our India-based tutor has a 710 GMAT score and strong teaching skills. Our partner uses his own content and teaching methodologies, not GMAT Genius content and methodologies. Some clients choose to start with our India-based partner to cover fundamentals over more hours, and then use GMAT Genius tutoring to push their scores to higher levels.

The table below summarizes the pricing for our India-based tutoring partner. Given the lower pricing, please note that there is less flexibility with this option. Tutoring hours must be purchased in 10-hour blocks and there are no refunds for unused hours. We can arrange for a free consultation with our India-based tutoring partner before you decide to proceed. Our India-based partner typically conducts consultations via WhatsApp or Google Meet. Please contact us to arrange for a consultation.

GMAT Study Materials

We recommend that our clients use the Manhattan Prep All the GMAT strategy guides to learn the fundamental GMAT concepts. We also highly recommend that our students practice with retired real GMAT questions, as presented in the Official Guides for GMAT Review. We are very familiar with these books and comfortably structure study plans based on these materials. We supplement these materials with GMAT Genius content and practice questions. Finally, we strongly recommend that our clients take GMAT practice tests at appropriate intervals using the free GMAT Official Practice Exam platform. In addition to the two free official tests, many clients purchase the four additional paid GMAT Official Practice Exams.


We conduct online tutoring with students located anywhere worldwide. We offer in-person GMAT tutoring in select U.S. metropolitan areas, including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, New York City, Orange County (California), Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and Tucson.

Tutoring is subject to tutor availability. We book tutoring appointments on a first-come, first-served basis.

Meeting Locations

GMAT Genius online tutoring uses a robust online tutoring platform. Our India-based tutoring partner conducts tutoring typically via Google Meet, but is open to other platforms.

For in-person tutoring, you and your tutor will decide upon a mutually-convenient meeting location. Some types of facilities that can be used for tutoring include a public library, a conference room at your office, an apartment complex common area, a quick-service restaurant or coffee shop, a hotel lobby, or a local college. If you want to review online practice questions with your tutor, consider a location that offers free Wi-Fi (e.g. a library or coffee shop). For liability reasons, we are not able to meet for tutoring at a private residence. Please note that we do not pay for parking at meeting locations, so you may wish to select a facility with your tutor that offers free or inexpensive parking.

Session Frequency and Timings

You and your tutor will decide upon mutually-convenient meeting times. We can arrange for tutoring during the work-week, during weekday evenings, and selectively on the weekends. Some students choose to set up the entire meeting schedule upfront, often on a fixed weekly schedule (e.g. every Tuesday evening). Other students want to set up only the first meeting and subsequently set up later meetings. In the latter case, please remember that your tutor schedules tutoring appointments on a first-come, first-served basis.

Although we certainly will consider your preferences, we recommend that each tutoring session be two to three hours in length.
  • You may not accomplish enough in a session less than two hours in length. Note that we require a minimum session length of one hour, because shorter sessions are not sufficiently productive.
  • Three hours is the length of a typical GMAT class and similarly is a good length for a GMAT tutoring session. Many students have difficulty maintaining focus and productivity once a session exceeds four hours, and therefore such lengthy sessions are discouraged.
Although we certainly will consider your preferences, we recommend that you meet with your tutor once or twice per week.
  • Meeting more often than twice a week doesn’t give most students enough time to do sufficient practice on their own between sessions. It is critical to the learning process that you study and practice problems on your own to reinforce the concepts discussed during the tutoring.
  • Meeting less than once per week isn’t suggested unless you are supplementing the tutoring with a class or extensive self-studying. You need to consistently practice and learn new concepts, or you may start forgetting concepts and may not sufficiently move forward in your skills.
