How can a GRE tutor help you?

The GRE, or the Graduate Record Examination, is a standardized exam that assesses the various skills and subjects you learned during your secondary and postsecondary schooling. There are several subject-specific GREs, but when referring to graduate school admissions, the GRE General Test is the one they are most likely looking for. The purpose of the test is to determine how successful you may be in graduate school. The GRE General Test lasts for three hours and 45 minutes and consists of three sections that assess your quantitative, verbal, and analytical writing skills. The Quantitative section is a test of basic arithmetic skills, and focuses on the interpretation of data and problem-solving skills. The Verbal section measures your ability to grasp and analyze written material. The Analytical Writing section consists of two essays that determine your skill in successfully expressing ideas and supporting your ideas with sound logic. As the exam is an important stepping stone in getting into graduate school, you may consider connecting with a tutor to work towards the goal of success in passing the exam with a good score. Varsity Tutors may find you a GRE tutor in Ann Arbor, MI, who may afford you the type of individualized attention that simply won't be possible in a classroom.

With the assistance of an expert GRE tutor in Ann Arbor to try to help you prepare, you may walk into your exam with confidence. After an appraisal of your learning style and the areas you need assistance, your tutor may determine the most appropriate path of study to work towards the goal of success in getting a GRE score that may earn you a spot at the graduate school of your choice. An expert tutor may teach strategy on understanding the Verbal section's tricky analogy section, help you memorize the equations you may need to know for the Quantitative section, and assist you in understanding what is expected in the Analytical Writing section.

Session Summaries by GRE Tutors

Ann Arbor, MI GRE tutoring
Today the student and I worked on some issues she had with a practice set of quantitative questions she completed for homework. We talked about a number of question types including exponent rules, prime factorization, finding individual factors of larger numbers and some geometry. Our geometry focused on problems with multiple figures, usually circles, and how these problems often revolve around calculating and applying the radius of the circle. We also talked about how the area of a shape changes relative to the side length. I will send her some practice problems that review the concepts we talked about today and she will continue working on vocabulary/ reading comprehension for our next session.

The student and I continued working on the test's verbal section, splitting time between vocab drilling, sentence equivalence, and text completion. Out of sets of five, she was consistently getting three or more correct in each type of question, and, even more importantly, she was using the correct process for arriving at her answers. Making absolutely certain that one is choosing a synonym is an example of something that she has dramatically improved upon in recent weeks. Regarding vocab, she is moving along through her pack of flashcards, and remembers the sets that we have done in previous weeks very well.

We began with the analytical writing section - the student has shown significant improvement in her approach to the 2nd essay (writing about an argument). Her thought process toward questioning the prompt is now much stronger, leading to better essays. We reviewed some math sections that she had done after our last session. Her math skills are improving; she only occasionally makes very minor mistakes. Lastly, we worked on vocabulary (sentence completion & fill-in-the-blanks) and reading comprehension. She could still improve her vocabulary skills to match the high level of the GRE, but overall, she is doing well. I can see improvement across the board in all sections.
