Boost Your GRE Score

Because the GRE covers skills ranging from supporting your ideas with evidence to analyzing data, preparing thoroughly can feel like a daunting task. However, the help of an expert GRE tutor allows you to focus on the aspects of this exam that are most pertinent to your scoring goals.

For example, if you are having a hard time with sentence equivalence questions in the Verbal Reasoning section, your mentor can help you practice strategies to hone your skills in this area.

Best Ways To Prep For the GRE

While there are numerous options for GRE prep including working on your own, online resources and apps, or taking a GRE class, taking part in private GRE tutoring gives you the chance to focus solely on your goals. Instead of having to wait around while the course reviews content that is already familiar to you, you and your mentor can spend as much time as necessary on the parts of the exam that you find most challenging.

Additionally, you have the flexibility to adapt your study plan as needed. For example, if you move through algebra concepts faster than expected, you can move on to geometry skills right away.

How much does a GRE tutor cost?

Because students have many different potential needs, the cost to work with a mentor can vary. For example, the expertise of your GRE tutor, the particular content you hope to cover, and whether you choose to learn in a one-on-one setting or a small group can all have an impact on what you pay for sessions.

Online GRE Tutoring review by Evan
The student and I only have one more lesson scheduled before he takes his exam next week. We've covered a lot and had a bunch of really productive sessions, especially today. I feel good about how he's doing. I assigned a full practice test for him to do over the weekend, and we'll go over it next session.

Online GRE Tutoring review by Neil
The student and I met for our session this morning, and we have our work cut out for us. I have laid out a comprehensive plan to attack his issues. The student has been given access to a test-taking structure and is working on studying that now. I will also engage him in drills on vocabulary and mathematical formulae in order to shore up these areas. I believe this combination of lesson plans will have the best chance of improving the student's performance on his next exam.

Online GRE Tutoring review by Deirdre
We started off with a few quick check problems, to see how the student handled percentages--he was a natural so, we won't have to cover those in depth. During this session, we worked on symbolism and logic problems. A highly abstract, math concept that appears on standardized tests. He struggled a bit--it's pretty hard to make math so abstract!--but he worked really hard and practiced on every problem. By the end he felt more confident but, we're definitely going to continue working on it in future sessions. We also reviewed number properties and, some basic ways to describe data (mean, median, mode), which he was clearly very familiar with. We did a brief introduction to reading comprehension, which we'll cover more in a later session.

Online GRE Tutoring review by Travis
The student and I reviewed a practice quantitative section. She was able to finish all but five in the time allotted, and there were only two that she was unsure about how to start. We discussed looking for important details in problems and making sure to check answers. Overall, she has definitely been improving, and with continued practice, she should be able to reach her target score of 145.

If you are looking for quality GRE tutoring, Varsity Tutors is here to set you up with the right private instruction to fit your academic and scheduling needs. The GRE is a critical part of pursuing an advanced degree for many students. so you'll want to do everything you can to make your study sessions efficient and productive. GRE tutors can help you prepare by providing guidance and various tools that are focused on your abilities, needs, and personal goals. Whether you're an established professional hoping to advance your career or an undergraduate student seeking admission to the school of your choice, working with a private GRE tutor can help you build your knowledge and skills. Although preparing to take the GRE can feel challenging, private GRE tutoring can help you gain confidence in your ability to do well.

The GRE, or Graduate Record Examinations, is typically required as a part of the admissions packet when students are attempting to gain admittance to a graduate school. The GRE covers different skills and knowledge needed to be successful in a graduate degree program. The exam tests you on three separate areas: Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. The GRE is a computer-based exam, and certain sections of the exam are computer-adaptive, meaning the level of difficulty on can change depending on how well you are doing. Answering a question wrong can lead to questions which are slightly less challenging, and answering questions correctly can lead to more challenging questions. This is thought to give a more accurate picture of your academic potential.

The GRE takes just under four hours to complete and consists of six total sections. There are two Verbal Reasoning sections, two Quantitative Reasoning sections, and an Analytical Writing section, as well as either an unscored or research section. If you get a test with an unscored section, it will not be identified and can be mixed in anywhere after the Analytical Writing section on the GRE. If you end up facing the research section, it is at the end of the exam and will be identified. The Analytical Writing section is a 30-minute assessment that requires you to complete two separate tasks. Both Verbal Reasoning sections consists of 20 questions, and you will have 30 minutes to complete each. The two Quantitative Reasoning sections are 35-minute evaluations that contain 20 questions each. The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are computer-adaptive. Private GRE tutors can help you work on the skills needed to do well in each of these sections.

What topics or skills can private GRE tutors help me learn?

Private GRE instructors can help you get started with your preparation by helping you configure a study system to make your sessions more effective. This means that everyone's GRE prep sessions can vary based on their particular goals. You may wish to prepare by spending some time going over a comprehensive review of all the topics and areas of the GRE. If you prefer, you can instead focus your preparation on the skills or concepts you find most difficult understand. Both of these options are accessible to you when you work with a private GRE instructor. Once your instructor has determined which part of the exam you most need to study for, he or she can help you break large amounts of information into the smaller parts that can be studied in separate study sessions. This can keep you from becoming overwhelmed. It also allows your instructor to assist with monitoring your progress and can help you advance through the material in an organized manner. As your skills and knowledge progress, your study sessions can be adjusted to focus on new areas of need. For example, if you find that you are learning Quantitative Reasoning skills more quickly than you expected, you and your instructor can adjust your study plan to spend more time on Analytical Writing. Alternately, if you find that Verbal Reasoning questions are more difficult than you expected, you can choose to spend more time working on those skills during your private instruction sessions.

You and your teacher can work on reading comprehension skills and practice answering questions from the level of literature you will commonly find in graduate school. Your instructor can also help you work on text completion skills. For this part of the test, your instructor can help you practice using the information in a passage to determine which words or short phrases can fill in blanks to create a coherent sentence. You may also want to practice sentence equivalence questions. These questions will contain a sentence with a single blank and ask you to find two choices that create two sentences with the same meaning.

How is working with a private GRE tutor different from other study resources?

Working with private GRE tutors is a very different experience than being in a traditional learning environment. In a traditional educational setting, the focus must be on the needs of a large number of students. When you work with a private instructor, the focus is on your particular needs, which can make organizing and planning your time more flexible and efficient. Your instructor can take the time to assess your current academic skills and cater your study sessions to help you improve your knowledge and skills. Your instructor can also take the time to learn your preferred learning style and use it to create lesson plans, which can be impossible in other learning environments. If you are the kind of student who understands the material more thoroughly when you are able to see the information presented in videos or infographics, listen to auditory lectures and podcasts, or participating in hands-on activities, your instructor can make sure to use those methods as a means to help you understand and retain information.

In addition to presenting material in a way which makes the most sense to you, your instructor can provide instant feedback on your progress throughout your study sessions. While feedback is not exclusive to tutoring and can be found in traditional learning environments, the personal, one-on-one environment of working with a private instructor can allow for the kind of feedback which is hard to find elsewhere. Since your instructor has the time to know your goals, learning style, and particular abilities, you can receive feedback which is tailored to your distinct needs. You can receive tips and tricks to help you move towards your goals for GRE prep. This can reinforce good habits and assist you in gaining confidence as you approach exam day. Being able to work with an instructor who really knows you and has the goal of assisting you in reaching for your specific GRE goals can turn the process of preparing for this critical exam from a frustrating experience to a rewarding one.

In addition to focusing on the specific skills and material needed for each section of the GRE, your instructor can help you work on basic test-taking skills. For example, different types of questions can require different strategies as you work through the problems. The strategies you will utilize when answering multiple choice questions will be vastly different than the strategies you will use to respond to essay questions. You and your instructor can work on different approaches to address the varying types of questions you will expect to see on the GRE. You and your private instructor can also work on time management skills so you can move through the sections with ease. You'll be able to work through sample questions with your instructor, which can allow for demonstrations on how to work through the problems quickly and efficiently and can help you learn new test-taking approaches. These are skills that you will need not only for the GRE but throughout your entire academic career.

No matter what your particular GRE goals are, Varsity Tutors is here to connect you with exceptional private instruction to assist you in reaching for those aspirations.
