Cambridge Coaching GMAT tutors are dynamic teachers who think strategically about raising their students' scores. As a prerequisite, we only hire tutors who have scored in the highest percentiles of the test. But the scores are only the first of many stages in our hiring process. We also ask that our tutors be effective communicators, savvy interpreters of testing data, and structured thinkers. You are busy. Your GMAT tutoring should be as efficient, effective, and enjoyable as possible. With an eye towards this goal, we employ a diverse group of exceptional tutors to meet the needs of every kind of student.
Our GMAT tutors are MBA candidates at Harvard Business School, MIT's Sloan School of Management, and Columbia Business School. Many are doctoral candidates in top graduate programs at Harvard, MIT, Columbia, NYU and Princeton, while others are business professionals. Some tutors guide their students from the GMAT all the way through the business school admissions process.
Our GMAT tutors are grouped into four categories based on their level of teaching experience, qualitative feedback from students, volume of referrals, and historical (quantitative) client score improvement. Only tutors who have success raising scores and receive consistently outstanding feedback are promoted. We recruit GMAT tutors with a history of teaching experience and deep familiarity with the exam. However, because the GMAT is a test that requires very specific knowledge of question type and strategy, newer Cambridge Coaching tutors begin at the Standard tier. We consider promotions after tutors have taught for a minimum of 25 hours at the Standard tier, a cumulative 100 hours at the Senior tier, and a cumulative 250 hours at the Guru tier.
