1-to-1 Private Tutoring
1-to-1 tutoring with a TestMagic professional instructor (in person at TestMagic or by video/phone). Rates listed are for one hour of tutoring. (Minimum of ten hours, please.) Discounts available for prepayment of hours in bulk (see the drop-down menus).
Video is tutoring available (with screen-sharing and whiteboard functions). You will need a computer with an Internet connection, and some sort of audio or video to use all the features.
We have different rates for different staff (senior instructors, advanced degrees, and the like).
- Level 1: Newer staff; just as friendly and smart as all the others, just less time at TM. Cancellation policy: minimum 24 hours' notice. Most affordable option.
- Level 2: Experienced, highly-educated. Know the tests inside and out. Cancellation policy: With Level 2 and 3 staff, the cancellation period of 24 hours is reduced to 1 hour. (Choose this option if you have an unpredictable schedule.)
- Level 3: This is Erin, the founder of TM. Has worked personally with some of our highest achievers since the very beginning in 1998, both on the verbal sections of tests on and the college applications. Cancellation policy: With Level 2 and 3 staff, the cancellation period of 24 hours is reduced to 1 hour. (Choose this option if you have an unpredictable schedule.) Limited availability.
