Private Instruction

Prefer Individual Attention?

We know that some students prefer individual attention. Whether you would like to focus on a specific area of weakness or can't fit a course into your personal schedule, we can help. Our private instruction packages allow students to study at their own pace, and at times and locations that are convenient to them.

All Sherpa GRE instructors have:

  • Scored in the 99th percentile of the GRE.
  • An MA or PhD, or are currently earning such a degree.
  • At least two years of teaching experience.

In addition, every private instruction package of 5 or more hours includes 8 practice exams, our 7-volume strategy guide “Master Key to the GRE”, and access to 30+ hours of online content.

Pricing

  • 1 hour – $300
  • 5 hours – $1,000
  • 10 hours – $1,500
  • 20 hours – $3,500
  • 40 hours – $5,000

To determine which package is right for you, consider how far you are from goals. If you’re within 2 to 3 points of your target score, or need help with just 1 or 2 specific topics (e.g. probability or statistics), consider a package of 5 hours or fewer. If, however, you’ve yet to begin your preparation or are far from goals, a much larger package will likely be necessary.

To discuss which package might be right for you, give us a call at (202) 248-1679 or write to us at info@sherpaprep.com. We are open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. All times are Eastern (EDT).

Our Special "Student Rate"

Current and former students who have enrolled in one of our GRE courses are eligible for a special “student rate” of just $40 an hour. Maybe you would like to brush up on a topic or two, or perhaps you need specialized help in a specific area. Our “student rate” is there to make sure that your needs are covered, no matter what they may be.
