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

GMAT Tutor London -- Rowan Hand

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 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.

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.

Private GMAT Tutoring in London and Online

GMAT tutoring in London and Online is available either hourly à la carte or in convenient ten-hour packages. The ten-hour mark is what I’ve found to be the most effective number to get you studying on your own. There’s a reason it’s the most popular option.

Private tutoring is an excellent option for GMAT tuition. Different people struggling in different ways, but we can create a bespoke plan to suit your individual situation, needs, and learning style.

Like to work on your own? All the better. The highest scorers tend to be quite independent, but it’s always useful to have a second opinion or help with some of the thornier GMAT questions.

Maybe it’s just having the accountability to get that work done in the first place. No judgment; we’ve all been there. Don’t worry, I give lots of homework!

My Free GMAT Videos are a great way to get an impression of what I have to offer as a tutor.

Sometimes there’s just no substitute for seeing it done.

You can read all kinds of theory and still get nowhere. Watch me do solve Official GMAT questions in real time, with full commentary, on my YouTube channel (link).

Videos discussing all sorts of Quant and Verbal questions, sticking to Official Guide questions so that you know you’re getting the real deal.

While you’re there, check out the classic One-Minute GMAT Lessons as well! You’ll never know how many points you can gain in such little time!
