Our Tutors

Who are the tutors & what are their credentials?

Prep For Success' GRE tutors are actually the co-founders themselves, who have scored in the 95th percentile on the GRE. They have also been perfecting their customized tips, tricks, and content that can be utilized to master the exam. Additionally, Prep For Success prides itself on the mom-and-pop company feel in which the founders are fully invested in every tutor is fully invested in their student's success.

What is the typical schedule and how long are the lessons?

Typically our lessons are 2 hours as we find that is the ultimate amount of time to get a bunch of material done. Within the first hour we review the homework, and the second hour is dedicated to teaching the next topic! However, if 1 hour or 1.5 hours is best for budgeting or scheduling we can gladly accommodate. On average most students prepare 2-4 months prior to their exam by doing 2 hours of quant per week and 2 hours of verbal per week. We can always adjust accordingly if a student is moving slower or faster through the material. Typically the first month is teaching content, the second month is timed drills so they are able to complete the material in the given time of the test, and the last month is practice tests.


What sets Prep For Success apart? Can I read reviews?

First and foremost, Prep For Success has over one hundred 5 star reviews on thumbtack and google, so the reviews speak for themselves as our clients are very happy with the service we provide! One main feature that sets Prep For Success apart from other companies is that the founders of the company are fully invested in the company and work as tutors as well. This allows them to not have a disconnected experience from what the students need and be fully invested in all the student’s successes. This also gives our company the small mom-and-pop feel unlike Kaplan, Princeton Review, Varsity Tutors, or any other larger company. Also, our tutors have a wide range of experiences such as perfect scores, over 10 years of experience, experience working with students that have learning disabilities, and so much more. Additionally, Prep for Success focuses on tips and tricks as well as content, rather than some other companies that just focus on one side of the spectrum. Meaning, many other companies will just give the student practice test after practice test; however, we truly believe in teaching all the content first and then delving into timed drills, and then applying it to the actual test. No sense testing over and over again material that the student does or doesn’t know.

I loved that Kamil already had a course designed for me, along with all the materials needed - taking the guesswork out of how to prepare. Kamil is dedicated and flexible, making it super easy work together. Kamil's enthusiasm and mastery of the GRE gives you the confidence and skills needed for test day, as well as making it fun (!) in the process. For anyone serious about improving their GRE score, I highly recommend working with Kamil!"
