Description

MyGuru provides 1-1 tutoring and test preparation services in your home, local library, or coffee shop through an elite team of independently contracted tutors - we work with a small number of highly experienced, expert tutors with impressive backgrounds. What differentiates us from competitors is the quality of our tutors. We start by seeking individuals with 3+ years of experience, strong resumes, academic backgrounds from highly selective schools, and 95th percentile test scores or better. We then complete an interview with each application, run a background check, and track feedback on their performance. Only consistent top performers remain a part of our team, as we stand behind the quality of each tutor. Parents or students call or email us, and after an initial conversation about the student's unique situation, we share information about available tutors and connect the student with our best available tutor, helping to coordinate on objectives, logistics, and materials where possible. After that, you work directly with your tutor to schedule and complete sessions, contacting MyGuru only to handle payment and provide feedback....

I...

Wow! What a great experience! My son is a student at the University of Illinois. When he switched to online classes, he quickly realized that he needed extra help with an upper level finance class. He tried peer tutoring and that was not enough. We contacted Mark at MyGuru and, with the help of Morgan, my son was quickly connected with Danny. Danny's credentials were awesome and he did a great job...

I was very pleased with the MyGuru experience. When I initially desperately reached out to them in March 2016, my daughter, a senior in high school, was failing multiple subjects, including chemistry and two math classes, and was in jeopardy of not graduating in late May. She was stressed out and underperforming. Morgan Bissett reached out to me and connected us with a tutor, Ben, who was tailor-m...

This was a fantastic service that prepared me for the IL Board of Nursing Exam. With cooperation and coordination from Mark, the owner of MyGuru, he placed me with the BEST tutor I have ever had - Nikki. Mark's professionalism and willingness to find a good fitting tutor exceeded all of my expectations. My tutor, Nikki, has such knowledge and was very honest about the need for additional tutoring ...

Excellent! MyGuru set my daughter up with the perfect tutor. They worked well together and based on practice tests, her scores have improved. In addition to our fantastic tutor, the administrative team at MyGuru is a pleasure to deal with and prices are reasonable. I'd definitely recommend this company to anyone.
