Let's face it, 5 out of 4 people in this world do not understand fractions :) Are you one of those people and are about to take the GRE? We can help!

Whether you haven't had a math class since high school, and words like percentages or geometry scare you, or you are a student who just needs math explained in plain and simple terms, we offer small classes (2-5 people; private instruction available upon request) geared towards your weakest areas. We meet for 4 classes, 2.5 hours each time, covering all the major areas like geometry, algebra and data analysis. We'll work hard to get you in the score range you need, and enable you to study effectively on your own as well.

About us:

We are do-it-yourself professionals, we hold analytic degrees from top universities in the country, and we have ample teaching and tutoring experience. We can show you simple tricks that will get you a higher score, without sacrificing months of your valuable time prepping for a 4-hour test. Your wallet is likely to thank you also.

    If math sounds synonymous with dancing naked in a conga line at the wedding of your second cousin, then you definitely need Kick Ass Tutors.

    Much like the naked conga, math for me is an awkward long forgotten series of patterns and moves that I only tried rarely and with much taunting and embarrassment.

    Insert my future. It now depends on a complex mathematical dance that I have yet to master. I consider my options: 1) a high priced test preparation factory, 2) a stack of heavy books that will be later used as the legs to a coffee table or 3) a random I find on craigslist to tutor me.

    I'm not sure if the classroom style test prep I'll receive at a big name corp is worth the value of a gold coin. I'm also not sure if I'm disciplined or savvy enough to navigate a labyrinth of test prep books on my own. Initially, I choose option 3.

    I've had lots of math tutors and my craigslist find was particularly abysmal. He had never taken the GRE and was a scholar equivalent to John Nash (i.e. see film "A Beautiful Mind"). Not only was my craigslist friend as perceptibly brilliant, but also taught me math in a similar method to the aforementioned film and savant-- which equated to a series of murmurings, scribbles and assurances that what I was learning was rather simple. Ack.

    Unfortunately, the numbers just wouldn't float in front of me and I decided to see what else I could do to prepare. After much googling and panic, I discover "Kick Ass Tutors" on thumbtack and meet up with Karim.

    Equally brilliant, but far more articulate than the former Nash understudy-- Karim offered clear step by step instructions and more personalized attention than I would have received with a more well-know test prep company. He also knew the GRE, had a set curriculum and was able to successfully get me to do the mathematical tango.

    All in all, save your time and your wallet and go with KickAssTutors. Karim is a mathematical rock star, but an even better teacher. Highly recommended!

  • As we celebrate the International Women's Day today, let us remember that women's access to higher education was not always equable. So, girls, when you cram for that GRE, remember to be grateful :) And call us if you get stuck!
