Private tutoring is not the ideal option for someone who hasn't done some GMAT prep already. In this case, it is advisable that you consider the following course options we offer:
No. The diagnostic tests are not the same as the ones in the GMAT official guide. These are tests designed by us to enable us to pinpoint your weak areas and also pick up timing issues. The diagnostic test results help us work out the course structure in such a way that the time spent in the sessions is utilized most optimally.
The number of hours needed is determined by the diagnostic test results. We share the suggested course plan with you after evaluating your diagnostic tests and finalize on the number of hours after interacting with you.
In most cases, candidates with previous scores in the 650-680 range have been able to complete the private tutoring course by opting for anywhere between 8 - 12 hours.
In most cases, candidates with previous scores in the 690-710 range have been able to complete the private tutoring course by opting for anywhere between 5 - 8 hours.
Yes, all sessions are recorded and then shared with you on the online portal
We follow a simple time calculation method wherein the time the meeting starts till the time the meeting ends is taken into account. Since the sessions are recorded, this time is available in the shared recordings. For every 5 hours purchased, 10 minutes of grace time are added to the total available time i.e. instead of 300 minutes of total session time, we count 310 minutes.
We have a minimum time requirement of 1 hour for each session, therefore if a session ends in say 50 minutes, it is counted as 60 minutes of time used up.
Unlike other 'big' coaching classes, we do not operate on a franchise model. At Sharp Minds, the institute and the founder-instructor are one. For the private tutoring sessions, the expertise of the instructor is of paramount importance - not the brand name that the institute might have established or the social media publicity it might have indulged in.
