We do offer one-on-one tutoring, both over the phone and in person. The rates are, frankly, quite high in comparison to the rates that other tutors charge, because the results are much better than the results that other tutors get, and because our time is in very high demand.

In the past we only accepted one-on-one clients by word of mouth, but we’re now very happy to open the service to the public. (Please follow this link for test-prep tutoring with Mike or Patrick Barrett.)

Let me be very clear, though: we don’t teach people any different strategies in the one-on-one sessions than we do in our video courses. The approach to the test is the same. The difference between the two is that the one-on-one sessions happen in real time, which means we can tailor our ideas to the student’s specific needs, and we can address any problem areas the student has together. Some clients just prefer the more immediate feel of the one-on-one format, that’s all; you still get the same strategies and training through either approach.
