The GMAT is complex enough, so we try to keep our tutoring rates and policies as simple as possible. Here’s everything you need to know:
Rates & Payment Policies (valid through November 30, 2019)
Current rates are $380 per hour to work with Charles Bibilos and $280 per hour to work with any of our other tutors and consultants. These rates apply for all services: GMAT tutoring, GRE tutoring, and MBA admissions consulting. All services are available online via Skype.
All GMAT tutoring sessions are two hours long. Exceptions can be made only in rare cases.
Sorry, we do not offer volume discounts or “package rates” of any sort. This allows you to maintain your flexibility — very few students know how much GMAT tutoring or MBA admissions consulting they’ll need before they get started, and there’s no need to lock yourself into more hours than you’ll ever actually use.
All payments are processed via our secure autopay system after each tutoring session, and we accept all major credit and debit cards, as well as ACH (bank transfer) payments.
If you have a specific budget, please let us know BEFORE you start tutoring — that way, we can be sure to use our time together as effectively as possible.
We don’t formally require a minimum number of sessions, but if you’re looking for a significant score improvement, it’s very unlikely that we‘ll be able to work magic in just one or two sessions. For more on this, please read our FAQ.
Rates are subject to change in response to market demand. However, we won’t raise rates on you after you start working with us — if you begin GMAT or GRE tutoring when rates are lower, then the same rate applies for the duration of your studies… even if the rate goes up for new students.
Here’s where we have to be a little bit mean. We make our living by selling our time in two-hour increments. If you book a GMAT tutoring session and then cancel at the last minute, it really, really sucks for us. If you cancel less than 48 hours before a session (or don’t show up at all), we ask that you pay for your session, since you’ve already prevented us from offering that slot to other GMAT or GRE students. If you’re the victim of an unexpected and terrible act of nature (blizzards, subway fires, internet outages, etc.), we’ll understand. Otherwise, please be respectful, and either A) show up to your GMAT tutoring appointment, or B) give us plenty of warning if you need to reschedule, or C) pay for our time if you don’t do either of the above. Fair?
Scheduling & Punctuality
Please arrive on time.
Please please please arrive on time.
If you’re early, you might interrupt another GMAT student, and that isn’t fair. Worse, you might prevent us from eating lunch, and then we’ll be cranky, crappy GMAT tutors.
If you’re late, your GMAT tutoring session will still end at the scheduled time… so it’s your loss if you’re late. Sorry, we have to be a little bit mean about this.
