Note that not all tutors listed above run sessions currently. If you want a session with Leaderboard, you'll need to email him - he doesn't otherwise tend to make slots available via the portal.

They tend to sell out quickly, so you need to be quick. If you can't find any slots, we recommend to keep checking, as new slots are added regularly. Conversely, seeing no slots available doesn't mean that we're booked for months either.

How much does it cost?



$50/hour for Greg, $40/hour for others.

How can I book a one-on-one tutoring session?



Only students with a GregMAT+ subscription may book sessions or view available timeslots.

Go to https://www.gregmat.com/tutoring, choose a date where there are slots (indicated by the green dot) and book it.

Step 1: Go to the Tutoring page and select a day with available slots

Step 2: Select an available tutor and timeslot

The times shown are in your local timezone.

Step 3: Read the confirmation carefully and select "Yes, I'm sure"

Step 4: Fill out your payment details and complete the payment

A single user cannot book more than one tutoring session every four days, across all tutors. In some cases this may be undesirable, so contact the customer service representatives if this affects you.

Users wanting to book Greg's essay feedback or personal statement services should continue to use services.gregmat.com (the GregMAT+ subscriber requirement does not apply). If such services are marked as "sold out", contact greg@gregmat.com

I get a 404 upon booking a session



It's a bug - don't worry. Normally this means that your session has been successfully booked; if you are in doubt, just contact the customer service representatives, who will be able to confirm for you.

What tips should one follow for a one-on-one tutoring session?



Please have a list of questions and/or problems you’ve already attempted and/or completed ready to discuss. Tutoring sessions that are entirely planned by the tutor do not go very well. The tutor might be covering topics you already know or topics that you don’t necessarily need. In addition, when you’ve already attempted the problems, you can readily explain your thought process. This makes it easier to diagnose where you went wrong.
If you haven't already, please complete the GRE Foundation quizzes (links here).
If you’ve already taken the GRE and approximately 15 days have elapsed, please have your diagnostic report (from the ETS website) ready to go. This is a document that outlines your specific performance on the test. In essence, it highlights your strengths and weaknesses.
It’s okay to treat the lesson like a therapy session. I’m obviously not a therapist and don’t purport to be, but it’s good sometimes to let our emotions about the test out. It’s cathartic.
You don’t have to show your face or anything like that during the meeting. But a good microphone or quiet setting is appreciated.
