Mr. D. was able to keep my daughter engaged and interested the entire session. He made her feel confident with reading. She stated that he was the "best teacher in the world". She gave him two thumbs up and a heart. I'm very pleased with my investment towards my child's education using Varsity Tutors.

We've helped thousands of learners of all ages improve their reading and English skills including teaching English as a second language.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

How can a PCAT Reading Comprehension tutor help you?

Many students wishing to impress pharmacy schools with excellent PCAT scores may brush over the PCAT Reading Comprehension section during their review in order to focus the majority of their study time on the test's Chemistry, Biology, and Quantitative Ability sections. These students may imagine that since they have encountered reading comprehension sections on nearly every standardized test they have taken before, the PCAT will present them with no new challenges. This is a mistake. The Reading Comprehension section on the PCAT is an examination of reading skills that is far more rigorous than those commonly encountered on tests like the ACT and SAT.

While it includes standard questions concerning a passage's main idea and supporting details, the definition of words in context, and aspects of tone and purpose, the section also includes questions that move beyond the literal information presented in a passage and challenge test-takers to draw conclusions, make inferences, and analyze the strengths, rhetoric, and subtle biases of the argument at hand. Having perhaps prepared for pharmacy school by following a curriculum in which reading comprehension has played a relatively small part, you may find yourself feeling unprepared for the difficulty of this section as you begin to review for your exam.

Online PCAT Reading Comprehension Tutoring review by Matthew
A good portion of the session was spent reviewing the work assigned to the student. We reviewed her verbal work of sentence equivalence problems as well as problems pertaining to rates and multiple-variable word problems. Following this, I reviewed with her new material pertaining to circles and 4+-sided polygons for which I assigned homework from the prep book. Also, I assigned 1-23 from the reading comprehension questions.

Online PCAT Reading Comprehension Tutoring review by Steven
The student and I met for another session of GRE tutoring. In this session we first checked over a practice test she had taken for homework. She did very well, scoring in the low 160s on both math and reading. We then did work on coordinate geometry, data interpretation, and mixed geometry. With these lessons completed, I will begin to move on to more test prep as opposed to focusing on teaching specific subjects. Normally this a later portion of the tutoring, but she has moved through the subject material very quickly.

Online PCAT Reading Comprehension Tutoring review by Mrunali
We began the session by reviewing some practice problems he completed. We then went through mini review lessons on exponent expressions, the distance formula, surface area, and volume. We then did mini lessons on how to approach factoring problems. Simply because we had yet to encounter a problem involving factoring a quadratic equation, I never realized the student did not know how to factor, but he can expand expressions. Thus, I showed him how to eliminate certain options based on the lowest and highest coefficient term and then expand the remaining options to get the answer. We also went through how to reason through probability problems. We ended the session with him completing independent practice and me chiming in as need be. Today was our last session, as he will be taking the GRE on Wednesday.

The student and I went over the essay section of the test. I had her complete a practice essay and then reviewed it with her. I also had her complete a verbal section of the test, which we then reviewed.

Today we took a practice half-examination. It was determined that her skills are currently at the eighty percent threshold and are almost at her target goal. Further practice will work to get her used to the word format of the GRE company.

Online PCAT Reading Comprehension Tutoring review by James
Final review before the student takes the GRE on Saturday. Did a little bit of everything. Went over some old math problems she had trouble with the first time through. We talked about what to expect and a little bit of review she can do before her test.
