  • GMATPro121 is a network of quality-assured, elite (750+ or 99th %ile only), specialist private GMAT tutors who are dedicated to helping you achieve your best possible score, through a prep program that is:

    • Completely personalized: Leading to much higher average score increases than classroom courses and teachers can ever generate.
    • Extremely high quality: We do the quality control so that you don't have to. You get a top quality tutor first time, instead of wasting time hunting the "Wild West" of freelance tutors to find quality & value.
    • Cost-Effective: Much cheaper than tutors from "big brands" -- yet we exceed the industry's highest standards for GMAT tutors, retaining only highly experienced, 750+ scoring, specialist tutors with outstanding student feedback.
    • Low-Risk: We offer a session-by-session payment model, which means GMATPro121 can only ever profit when students choose to come back for more sessions with our tutors.

We currently operate in New York City and multiple other locations within the US, Canada and the UK.

Founded in 2006 by a top MBA graduate with a 750 GMAT score and experience with similar standardized tests stretching back over 25 years, GMATPro121 addresses a major gap in the market for GMAT preparation services, between:
  • Expensive and ineffective branded classroom courses, and 
  • The "Wild West" of freelance tutors of greatly varying quality and reliability
Essentially we occupy a middle position in the market, designed to capture all of the advantages of 1-on-1 coaching while ensuring tutor quality, with a lean business model that benefits all parties: 
  • most importantly, students - who receive personalized training that is top-notch, yet cost-effective; 
  • tutors - who are motivated by one-to-one engagement with students, as well as receiving the lion's share of the fees we charge; and 
  • of course the network itself - that profits by addressing a clear market need with a superior value proposition. 
Because of our strict high score requirement for tutors, you can be assured they are masters of and can help you with ANY aspect of the test, be it a troubling question type (quantitative word problems or data sufficiency, or verbal sentence correction, critical reasoning, or reading comprehension), time management issues or simply test-taking nerves.

"Thanks for the work you guys put in with me. I start my full time MBA on 08 September."

- Campbell, 140-point improvement (from 510 to 650, after 4 sessions totaling 8 hours over 1.5 months)

"In all I probably had about ten lessons with Cliff. These lessons took me from being a math-phobic 550 scorer to scoring 680 at my first attempt: with 77th percentile in the Quantitative section. Although still not a stellar score, it ought to be considered in context of someone whose educational disciplines were primarily languages and philosophy. I scraped a 'C' grade in GCSE Maths and had given the dreaded topic no further thought for the subsequent decade. Cliff's patient and thorough tuition made an enormous difference to my confidence and ability when it came to test day.

Cliff's uniquely analytical approach to GMAT preparation befits someone with an INSEAD MBA. His question banks and online spreadsheets allow one to rapidly identify problem areas and, through targeted practise, build skills and confidence.

For most of us, GMAT is a lot of work. Having expert individual tuition really allows one to leverage one's own efforts and minimise the time til getting the score you want."

Arthur, 130-point improvement, nearly all from quantitative (from 550 to 680 after 12 sessions totaling 24 hours over 2.5 months; accepted by Wharton)

"I have finally succeeded with my GMAT. I got score 610 (83% in Math and 39% in verbal), which is enough for Imperial. They have already sent me unconditional offer. Thank you very much for your help and personal approach."

Svetlana, 110-point improvement (from 500 to 610, with 33 percentile point improvement in verbal and 27 percentile point improvement in quantitative)

"I took the test yesterday and got 700 (q49 v37), up from previous score of 590 (q46 v26), so job done. I think most of the gain on verbal came from improved SC - I found your techniques/approach excellent and exactly what I was looking for, and overall am confident that the tutoring was worthwhile and value-adding. Not sure I'm going to become an SC hobbyist like yourself ;) instead I think it's a useful skill and sentence grammar is something I'll be much more aware of now.

Cheers guys!"

Nimesh, 110-point improvement (from 590 to 700, after four sessions totaling 8 hours; accepted London Business School)
