Hi! My name is Josh. I will help you raise your score to the level required by the graduate schools of your choice. With my service you get someone more qualified than a massproduction GRE prep company tutor at a fraction of the cost. Plus I am more highly incentivized to help you succeed because I am not working for a company that takes 70% of what you are being billed for. I have a decade of private tutoring and classroom teaching experience, so I'm not an instructor who only knows the content but not how to communicate it. In fact, Chicago Public Schools hired me to design the curricula for Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and AP Calculus (my syllabus being approved by the College Board).

No matter where you are in the spectrum, I will help you move up in a friendly, supportive, and patient way!

I have all the materials you need to get started, and as we move forward I will help you get whatever else you need.
For a rough idea of how long you will want to work with me, based on your total current and target scores:
287 > 303 1020 hours
303 > 318 1525 hours
318 > 326 612 hours
326 > 331 510 hours
331 > 336 510 hours
303 > 331 2545 hours
(For reference, an average (50th %ile) score is around 303, a 318 is 78th %ile, 95th %ile is around 333, 97th is 336. Note that the higher end of the score spectrum is "dense"It takes longer to raise your score by a given amount here than it does for lower scores.)
Average score (say 303) to top 5% (about 30 points): 2035 hours with me in addition to time spent studying alone (12 hours for every hour spent with me).
Top 5% to Top 3%, around 10 hours. If you are at the 318 level and want to get to the top 1%, you can expect to spend 2035 hours with me.
It takes a few lessons for you to see your score increase with me, but if you are consistent in your efforts you will definitely notice the difference.
By the way, all of these numbers are tiny compared to the difference in lifetime earnings and the cost of earning your graduate degree from a high caliber program (in terms of time, money, effort), maybe 5%.
To begin, submit the contact form. You will receive my contact information, and if it's urgent I encourage you to call or text.
