Our specialty is highly customized, one-on-one support in almost any academic subject or standardized test. We combine “off the shelf” test prep materials with official practice tests & hours of 1-1, in-person instruction from an expert tutor to create customized test prep solutions for: High school students: ACT or SAT Aspiring graduate school students: GMAT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT Individuals seeking professional certifications: CFA, CPA, Series 7 Exam We also offer 1-1 tutoring in almost any academic subject, high school through graduate school. History Established in 2009. MyGuru was founded in 2009 in Chicago to provide high quality 1-on-1 tutoring & test prep at an affordable price. MyGuru’s founders, two Northwestern University graduate students, realized it would be possible to offer both higher quality tutoring and more reasonable prices by: a) Slowly recruiting tutors with 3+ years of experience, 95th percentile test scores, and a passion for tutoring b) Designing simple packages that leverage available “off the shelf” tutoring & test prep books and materials c) Delivering an extremely high level of customer service, helping students find the best tutors for them d) Providing tutoring in students’ homes or nearby libraries to reduce cost and increase convenience Since 2009, we’ve slowly expanded to several new cities, including New York. In any city we enter, we build our team slowly, recruiting and interviewing only the most impressive and accomplished local tutors who, most importantly, have a passion and a skill set for 1-1 tutoring.
