About Harris

I'm a Certified Teacher who has taught high school math - exactly the math that appears on the GMAT and the GRE - and English. I have over 20 years' teaching and tutoring experience, including thousands of hours of tutoring experience. I'm a full-time, professional tutor.

I scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT, and I have a B. Ed., a B.A., and an MBA. Many of my students achieve increases of 100 points or more on their GMAT scores. I keep very flexible hours and work online with students all over the world.

Many courses and tutoring sessions focus on providing you with cheats that are intended to help you “outsmart” the test, but most of these are unreliable and many are simply wrong. The only way to beat the test is to understand the material and to be able to answer the questions.

MY APPROACH IS TO TEACH YOU THE CONCEPTS AND SKILLS YOU NEED TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS CORRECTLY.

I will teach you the math you need to do the Quant portion, the grammar, correct English, and reasoning skills you need to do the Verbal portion, and the analytical skills and concepts you need for both. I will teach you how to read and unravel the questions, and I will teach you how to manage your time to maximize your score. I will teach you how to go to the core of the various question types while avoiding the traps that the tests set for you, and I will show you how to determine what you are expected to do in each case.

I will also help you prepare for the Integrated Reasoning (GMAT only) and Analytical Writing sections.

I will give you constructive strategies and insights to help you approach the questions systematically and in the most efficient way possible, using valid, mathematically sound tips and shortcuts to simplify the questions. I will not just offer you a collection of highly questionable cheats that give you a slightly better than one-in-five chance of guessing the answer.

I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Great, well-rounded GMAT Tutor.

I highly recommend Harris as a well-rounded GMAT tutor. Although I was skeptical to use an online-only approach, it worked out fine. He was responsive to e-mails and always punctual. Harris has an incredible grasp on all the concepts that the GMAT tests, which helped him teach me how to approach the problems strategically and efficiently. I saw the biggest improvement in the Verbal section, in w
