Hiring a GMAT Tutor

Have you been considering taking the GMAT?

GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a 3½-hour standardized exam designed to predict how test takers will perform academically in MBA (Masters in Business Administration) programs. A common question that might come up is whether someone wanting to take the GMAT is whether or not to hire a tutor.

If you would like to hire a GMAT tutor, you probably are wondering how you should  go about figuring out which private GMAT tutors are the right one for you. To help you a tutor that best fits your goals, you should follow these steps.

1.  Hire a GMAT specialist, not a math teacher. GMAT has  little in common with most other standardized tests. An ideal tutor will help you to understand the questions that are unique to the GMAT.

 2. Ask the tutor to talk about the difference between the GMAT and the GRE. If they tell you that the tests are basically the same, then look for another GMAT tutor.

3. Ask if the tutor has taken the GMAT. A GMAT tutor that is familiar with the GMAT first hand, understands the physical and psychological stresses unique to the exam.

4. Never hire a private tutor based solely on a high GMAT score. Make sure that your GMAT tutor is an experienced, dedicated teacher and not just a great test taker.

5. Finally, make sure The tutor has a  program designed specifically for your needs.
