Doctor GRE Prep - 20 years of Elite GRE Tutoring

In 2000, Dr. Donnelly relocated to Manhattan, and Doctor GRE Prep NYC proudly opened here in Manhattan. Since then, Doctor GMAT Prep has specialized in providing the finest individual Graduate Management Admission Test tutoring and is available here in New York.


Doctor GRE Prep NYC - 1998-present

Due to his love of tutoring (and his dislike of managing employees!) Dr. Donnelly performs all the private tutoring himself. Dr. Donnelly only accepts a limited number of students each year. His schedule tends to fill up rather quickly, hence, it is often advisable to reserve your time slot well in advance to ensure availability. Places are reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.

Over the years, Dr. Donnelly has helped literally hundreds of students to improve their test scores significantly and achieve their academic goals. We are confident that he can do the same for you.


Tutors of Oxford HK - 1993-1998

Tutors of Oxford HK was co-founded in Hong Kong by Dr. Donnelly in 1993 and soon grew to become the territory's largest and most respected premium quality tutoring service. Catering mainly for students from England and the United States, Tutors of Oxford HK specialized in providing the finest quality private lessons available.

As our reputation for excellence quickly spread, we expanded our services to cover all of the major standardized tests. At our peak, we employed and trained over 40 highly-qualified specialist tutors each academic year and helped thousands of students to achieve their academic goals.

After the change in Hong Kong's sovereignty in 1998, Tutors of Oxford HK closed its doors, secure in the knowledge of a job well done. Dr. Donnelly moved to the United States after accepting a lecturing position at Western Connecticut State University before moving to New York City where he founded Doctor GRE Prep NYC.

"My daughter has worked with Dr Donnelly for the last three months and it has been wonderful. Dr. Donnelly has been able to focus on her weaknesses and provide enormous insight. In addition, his advice with regards to strategy for the test has been invaluable. He is able to engage students and provide support well beyond other tutoring services. He is sincerely committed to student success and offers a personalized service with sound methodology. Within 3 months her scores improved significantly. In addition to all his talents ... he is just one of those really smart people that can teach."

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."
