I've really enjoyed my experience with VT. I was feeling very discouraged about taking the GRE again and I wanted to try and boost my score. I think learning from a person is so much better than a book! I feel so much more prepared and I've been telling people about it as well!

We found VT to be incredibly well qualified and were able to get 2 different people for the type of studying my son needed for his GRE studies. They were able to tailor the teaching structure one on one to his needs. He had excellent results, and has since been accepted to grad school.

The GRE, or Graduate Record Examination, is taken by most students who are applying to graduate school, as it is the most common test given to students who are entering graduate school. The test contains three sections. The analytical writing section gives you two writing tasks, one where you write about a given issue and one where you make an argument on a given prompt. The quantitative section tests you on your knowledge of high school math and reasoning skills. The verbal reasoning section tests you on reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and vocabulary usage. Perhaps the toughest thing about the GRE is that it may test you on things you haven't thought about since high school, so some refreshing of your memory is important. Effective preparation is essential before taking the GRE. If you're preparing for the GRE, Varsity Tutors can assist you in finding an experienced tutor in Oakland.

Varsity Tutors can connect you with a tutor in Oakland, CA, who is skilled at helping students prepare for the GRE. While you haven't been thinking about these topics for a while, your tutor will be up-to-date on all the content for the GRE, and will be able to try to help you work through the content, find the areas you need the most work on, and create an individualized study plan based specifically on your needs. That is not the kind of help you could expect in a classroom situation.

An experienced GRE tutor in Oakland can present you with multiple teaching approaches until they find the one that works best for you. Whether you are a visual learner, an auditory learner, or any other type, your tutor will find a great way to work with you, which means your sessions might be more effective than classroom test prep would be. Your tutor will not waste time studying things you are already very comfortable with, and they will take all the time you need to work on things that are coming more slowly to you.
