"I own and operate a boutique tutoring company called MyGuru - I founded MyGuru while getting my MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management in 2010. We focus on providing experienced tutors with impressive backgrounds and encourage highly personalized study plan development. Our tutors have gone through an intensive interview process, scored in the 95th percentile or better on any standardized test for which they'll tutor, and have at least 3 years of tutoring experience. We also seek to build relationships with tutors who are passionate about education and have a solid set of communication skills."

Education and Qualifications
MyGuru LLC is a 1-1 tutoring and test prep company founded and operated by Northwestern University students, graduates, and PhDs. MyGuru recruits excellent tutors with impressive academic backgrounds and a minimum of two years of experience actually teaching or tutoring. We provide a money back guarantee. We were founded in Chicago, but are selectively expanding to additional U.S. cities.
MyGuru LLC is a 1-1 tutoring and test prep company founded and operated by Northwestern University graduates. Our typical tutor is a PhD student at a prestigious university such as Northwestern University in Evanston, IL and has been tutoring or teaching for > 3 years. Many of our tutors are also certified teachers or former instructors at the large, well known test prep companies, and many hold MBAs, JDs, PhDs, CPAs, and CFA degrees. We recruit only the most experienced, accomplished, and generally impressive tutors. We are building a small, premier tutoring company. One of the founders personally interviews each new tutor, and we are very selective in who we recruit, accepting ~10% of tutor applicants.
We help high school, college, graduate, and professional students gain an edge with simple, effective, affordable solutions. We offer 1-1 and small group academic tutoring, as well as ACT/SAT/GRE/GMAT/LSAT/MCAT/ prep.
Working with MyGuru combines the convenience and low cost of an individual tutor (who travels to your home or a local coffee shop to work with you) with the benefits of an established company. We recruit and screen our tutors for both academic achievement and strong communication skills, offer a money back guarantee, and coordinate scheduling, payment, and the setting of objectives for each session to ensure you get as much out of the tutoring process as possible. We have a small but elite team of tutors that we are confident are among the best in Chicago.
