MY Education Guru FAQs

Are your services right for my student?

Our primary focus is readying our students for success in areas of academics, test prep, and college applications. We work with your student on organization skills, planning, and advocating for them inside and outside of the classroom. While we do supplement these sessions with academic coaching in certain subjects, our primary focus is equipping your student with study habits and tools.

MY Education Guru also specializes in Executive Function Coaching. If your student has difficulty starting or completing tasks, forgets to do or turn in assignments, or can’t seem to manage their time, they might benefit from Executive Function Coaching.  See our Executive Functioning page to see if your student could benefit EF Coaching.

Are MY Education Guru’s services worth the investment?

Test prep is often a 3 to 4-month process, which is a big investment. MEG’s Test Prep has helped so many students produce test results they never thought they could. Our students typically see a 10-point increase on their ACT and a 300 to 400-point increase on their SAT. These results come from the student’s own effort.  Essentially, dedicated students learn that hard work equals rewards!

If you’re seeking to give your student independence, accountability, college readiness, and drastically improved test scores, then yes, our services are definitely worth the investment! We give our students our all and expect them to be active participants in their success. Test scores improve when students are invested in the process and commit themselves to their goals.

How much can I expect my student to improve with MEG?

Every student’s  situation is different, but your student can expect to improve DRASTICALLY if time and effort are applied. Just take a look at our testimonials to see how much we’ve helped our students.

What’s the difference between a private session and a class?

Each private session is supported by an individualized lesson plan based on your student’s individual assessment. Depending on the subject, specific materials are included, such as practice tests, worksheets, and take-home guides. Most importantly, private sessions and classes are led by our experienced Gurus! Our Gurus love what they do and they bring that energy and enthusiasm to each session.

What is included in a private session?

Each private session is supported by an individualized lesson plan based off of your student’s individual assessment. Depending on the subject, specific materials are included, such as practice tests, worksheets, and take-home guides. Most importantly, private sessions and classes are led by our experienced Gurus! We also try to make sessions/classes fun and challenging.

Where do the sessions take place and what's the environment?

Sessions and classes are held in our offices in West LA. Your student will enjoy a quiet, clean, peaceful environment suited for studies and focus.

How is my student matched with a coach?

After completing a student assessment, we look at your student’s strengths, weaknesses, needs, and personality and place them with someone who can truly help your student excel.

What is expected from my student?

Come on time, try your best, take an active role in your improvement, be respectful. Ask questions and be honest when you don’t understand something. Come prepared with whatever materials your Guru has asked you to bring. Most of all, try to have fun!

Difference between a complimentary and paid assessment?

Complimentary assessments help our coaches establish a general understanding of your student’s learning needs and goals. These assessments don’t include the specificity and detail of our comprehensive assessments that consider your student’s learning differences and overall situation. While the complementary assessment provides general recommendations based on your student’s practice test performance, comprehensive assessments offer detailed, personalized evaluations and recommendations.

Our services are most effective when students complete a comprehensive assessment, as we can better tailor the curriculum and learning plan toward their needs. Importantly, comprehensive assessments usually help reduce the initial test prep time (curbing overall coaching costs) or gives the student ample time to fully prepare with all the tools they need to feel comfortable about their upcoming exam. We recommend our comprehensive assessments because, ultimately, it helps us understand where your student is coming from and gives them a chance to talk about their exam—their feelings, fears, anxieties, and goals—to develop a holistic view of the situation.

What is MEG’s Late policy and cancellation policy?

Part of our goal is to build a sense of responsibility and accountability in our students. Sessions must be cancelled/rescheduled 24 hours in advance. Late (less than 24 hrs in advance) cancellations or rescheduling are billed at the regular rate.

What payment methods does MEG accept?

We accept payment by personal or business check (checks can be mailed), Venmo and Paypal.

WE ALSO SERVE STUDENTS WITH ACCOMMODATIONS.
