We recognize that each of our students needs to prepare in his or her own way; this helps ensure that the end result is success. It doesn’t matter if you take private tutoring or online class course; we’ve developed a plan that will boost your probability for success.
This will help your tutor see where you currently stand. Don’t worry if the score isn’t very high at the moment. You’ll see how quickly you improve!
We highly recommend watching the entire course before even starting with your actual lessons. Alternatively, you can watch only those parts of the course which you will discuss in your next session with the tutor. You will be extremely well prepared when you get started and then have the chance to ask any remaining questions. If you don’t watch the course in advance or at least while taking lessons, you’ll be giving away a big piece of your opportunity to improve. This part of the preparation should take about 1-2 months and we recommend spending 2-4 hours a day on studying. You’ll be able to observe your progress with additional GMAT simulations and see how much better you do with later tests compared to your original diagnostic test!

By now you’ll have a good foundation. This is a great place to start for the beginning of your lessons! Our tutors will work with you to completely eliminate any remaining weaknesses. The more time you spend with your tutor, the higher are your odds of success! Generally, this part of the preparation should take 2-6 weeks. Here’s a quick rundown of what results to expect from which amount of private tutoring lessons. As you progress in your course, you’ll continue taking GMAT simulations so you become even more familiar with each question type and pacing strategies.
12 hours package: above 650 points but usually below 700 points. Well suited if you need help in only one area.

34 hours package: The best option if you are serious about your academic future. Students who enroll have a 70% probability of scoring over 700! These students usually apply for the leading MBA programs around the world – and get accepted!

Optimus Prep’s GMAT pyramid illustrates our approach how to teach. In the first step, you build a foundation and learn all relevant verbal and quantitative GMAT concepts. Our award-winning On Demand GMAT Video Course is perfectly suited because it covers all concepts from A-Z and was especially produced for non-natives or people who are out of school for years. In the second step, you will learn how to use these concepts to answer all question types of the GMAT. Your private tutor will be of tremendous help here. It doesn’t make sense to practice a lot of GMAT questions without having the general knowledge from the previous step of the pyramid. In the third and last step, you will learn how to exploit your full potential by implementing test strategies like time or stress management.
