Hi Rowan, just wanted to say thanks for all the time and help over the GMAT journey! Sat it again this morning and got 750 (47/47) so I’m really very happy indeed! –Lorian P, 2021
Thanks my man Verbal for the win (730). –Jaron W, 2021
Got this news this afternoon (Kellogg)!! Thank you so much for everything. Couldn’t have done it without all your support. Your notes got me through studying. Thank you heaps! –Michelle M, 2021
Rowan has been a real ally whilst applying for business school. Self-study is difficult as you can constantly second guess how you should be approaching the test. Rowan instituted systematic methods for both Quant and Verbal which gave me the security and confidence to get a 740 and a £22,000 scholarship to boot. He has also become a friend in the process. Thanks Rowan! —Josh C, 2020
I cannot recommend Rowan highly enough. Over the course of the last 5 weeks, with his help I was able to go from 640 on my first attempt to 720. I owe this almost entirely to Rowan’s abilities as a tutor. He has a firm handle on the content of the test and, maybe more importantly, is able to articulate the problem-solving skills required to tackle GMAT questions. —Fraser B

Rowan Hand — GMAT Tutor in London (and GMAT Tutor Online!)
- Is GMAT tutoring really necessary? Some people are fine to go it on their own, but it can be quite difficult to understand how much time and effort are most effective for your study–hours per day, weeks, months, etc.
- It’s difficult to rely on the conflicting information online. Having someone to discuss this with–as well as a place to discuss your expectations, fears, and of course GMAT content–can be the answer.
- Quality of GMAT tutoring matters. As a full-time London GMAT tutor, I am committed to working in the exam space. When not tutoring, I write and develop my own GMAT materials and work as a consultant editor for other test prep companies.
- The clear, efficient explanation always wins. Success is a balance of timing, understanding of the topic, and ability to move forward when no explanation is in sight. I can help you manage the competing demands of this difficult exam.
- No agency overhead. At Private GMAT Tutor London, by eliminating expensive offices, overeager sales teams, and ridiculous marketing materials, I can charge significantly less than big-box tutoring companies.
- GMAT Tutoring Online is now the industry standard, but in addition to online GMAT tutoring I offer GMAT tutoring in London and Cambridge.
As with any professional, a second opinion is always useful. I’ve been in this business for a while, so I know some good people. Contact me for a list of trusted GMAT tutors in London and online.

Simple. Click “CONTACT” at the top or bottom of this page. If you’re looking for other GMAT Tutors in London or online, I am happy to give you a list of recommended colleagues within the GMAT space. Everyone has different requirements and everyone gels better with different people, so it’s important that you find a tutor whom you’re able to work well with. I firmly support speaking to several GMAT tutors to see who’s the best fit for you.
£110/hr by the hour or £990/10 hrs. Over 10 hours PoA. You can also find more information about the cost of GMAT tutoring at this link. The cost of a private GMAT tutor comes with the convenience of having your own needs met and tailored to. This is particularly important if you’re a high-scorer, because many of the big box companies are primarily trying to sell group courses. Think about it: 80+ percent of the people fall within the 450-650x band and they only pay the tutor once to teach a whole classfull of people. What benefit is it to do sales and admin for an advanced GMAT course when all the money is in the middle? That’s precisely why high scorers often benefit more from private GMAT tutoring than from group courses. NB: I’ll post on the site if I’m running an Advanced GMAT group course.
London GMAT tutoring will generally be in the British Library or Barbican Centre; I am also available to travel in Zones 1-2 if there’s a place that you’d prefer to do tutoring. I’m also frequently in Cambridge, so if you’re based there just let me know and we can work out a room (usually at Selwyn College).
The greatest benefit of working with a GMAT tutor is to make sure that you’re studying as effectively and efficiently as possible. I can provide support in terms of advice, materials, and even out-of-hours help if you really get stuck. Also: needing to turn in homework is a great motivator… Believe me, there is a lot of homework I can give you.
In short, a GMAT tutor can help you navigate the difficulty of having to learn new topics as well as new techniques for some topics that might otherwise be familiar. Remember, the content on the GMAT might be the same as you saw in high school, but the way to achieve the answer will be vastly different. It’s a complicated exam and sometimes it can seem overwhelming. Having someone there to give you work and to discuss progress (or frustration) can make all the difference.
