The tutoring provided by Doug from MyGuru was effective. My daughter scored well on her first test.

My daughter & Bill from MyGuru worked very well together. When we first spoke about tutoring her, I was very concerned about her score when she took the ACT for the first time. She took it in April, with the tutoring from Bill, she went from a 16 to 20! Her goal is to get a 23~she is focusing more & said Bill really helped in preparing her! Thanks so much!

My daughter Paige enjoyed working with Bill from MyGuru for both ACT prep and later calculus. His easy-going style helped the process- not a pressure situation at all. If she didn't understand the explanation the first time, he'd go at it a different way until she understood. After working with Bill, her ACT score improved from 33 to 35 primarily due to the help he provided with her math and science review. Bill also is flexible with rescheduling a session in case there is a conflict. We'd recommend working with Bill and MyGuru. When our son reaches this stage, I'm sure we'll be giving them a call. Thanks!

Everything went really well with Mike from MyGuru. He gave my son some good direction already. We are going to continue.

Just wanted to let you know I found out my exam score. I ended up getting a 98%. I couldn't have done it without you! Thanks again for all your help!

Thanks, just purchased 5 more sessions and that should take us through the end of the year, but we will probably start again at the end of the summer if Bill is still available. He has been great!

John is a great tutor! He was very flexible given my work schedule and helped me craft a thorough and effective study plan to tackle the GMAT. I found John to be very knowledgeable in all of the areas covered by the exam and he did an excellent job identifying my problem areas and breaking down those topics that I found difficult, creating customized homework assignments, and referring the best study guides and prep materials. Overall, I had a great experience with John and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for personalized attention and guidance on the road to successfully completing the GMAT.

Thank you for your prompt follow up. I guess people's plans frequently change on 3 day weekends like this one. But I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your effectiveness and efficiency throughout the entire process. I will definitely keep you in mind for future needs.

I used MyGuru for HSPT tutoring for my daughter. Mark was very easy to work with and responded to emails quickly. He paired us with a wonderful tutor named Mike. He was very nice and patient with my daughter and helped her a lot. He focused on areas she needed the most help and taught her great strategies for taking the test. I was very happy with the service and had a wonderful experience. I will definitely use MyGuru again and will refer all my friends.

Mary is a fantastic tutor. She is so patient and always stays over the allotted hour--I never feel rushed. Mark provided me with a lot of info about MyGuru, and offered various payment plans. I could not be happier with MyGuru

My conceptual understanding has improved dramatically. Particularly, my comprehension of force vectors and unit conversion has gone from mediocre to thorough. The underlying logic of the principles at work makes sense for the first time, whereas previously the reasons behind those types of problems were not made clear in class or the textbook.

I decided to go back to school to obtain my bachelor's degree for accounting. Since I know myself all too well, I decided to attend University of Phoenix online. Although I enjoy going to school online, in an accelerated program, with limited ways to ask questions, Accounting can be a tough subject to learn. That's where MyGuru helped me.
I contacted Mark and team and told them what I needed. Within an hour or two Mark had responded with a member of his team who could tutor me in Accounting. Minaz was wonderful and helped me really understand the basics of accounting. She was patient, had answers for every question I had, and also understood my way of thinking and helped me turn it around.
I would recommend MyGuru for any educational need. Mark has really excellent team members, the price is reasonable, and they got back to me right away.

Colby has been doing great in school as Colby's says, "Bill taught me how to learn Geometry". We couldn't have been helper with Bill from MyGuru. Please thank him for us. If Colby starts to struggle again with math, we will certainly reach out to MyGuru again.

Vinny felt Bill from MyGuru was not only knowledgeable on every subject but helped him understand the finer points and nuances of each of the tests.

Working with John from MyGuru was directly responsible for an average ten point increase in my GMAT-Quant scores.

I just took the GMAT this morning and received a fabulous score!

A big thank you goes out to Jim for helping me overcome specific weaknesses. I really appreciate your patience and guidance during our tutoring sessions. You also helped improve my mental math skills and taught me how to think outside of the box on complex questions. Thank you!

The GMAT books that John recommended were also a huge help. I think every student trying to score about a 700 should purchase these books. The GMAT Club questions were also good, but I found they were almost too hard. The actual test was not nearly as difficult as the GMAT Club quant questions were. I also found that number properties were a bigger portion of the test than I originally anticipated. I would suggest students focus on this and not only concentrate on the super tricky word problems.
