Private Online GRE Tutoring in Vancouver

If you're looking to enter a post-graduate educational program you may be required to take the GRE, and Varsity Tutors can help you find a GRE tutor in Vancouver who can offer guidance as you prep for this important exam. The GRE is used by top Canadian schools, including some departments at schools like Simon Fraser University, and is used by many United States schools as well. The test covers a lot of material, and you may feel unsure of how to begin studying. A lot may be riding on your GRE scores, so finding extra resources to draw upon as you prepare can be a good idea, and a Vancouver GRE tutor can offer you direct feedback customized to fit your abilities.

GRE tutoring in Vancouver can help you come to grips with the three sections of the GRE: Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. Analytical Writing will ask you to create two essays, one analyzing a specific issue, and another analyzing an argument. You'll have 30 minutes to complete each of these pieces of writing. In both cases, you should be able to demonstrate an ability to write clearly and concisely about complex topics, to support your ideas with evidence, and to structure your writing well. For the Verbal Reasoning section, you'll have to read and interpret passages to answer related questions, fill in blank sections of short passages based on context, and use partial information to deduce the endings of sentences. Quantitative Reasoning aims to test your math and logic skills in content areas like algebra, geometry, and data analysis. You'll have to apply both mathematical knowledge and problem-solving skills to excel in this section.

The GRE covers a lot of different types of material, and it's likely that you have strengths and weaknesses that vary from subject to subject. One of the advantages of private tutoring in Vancouver is that it can cater to your individual needs as a learner. Where a classroom would require you to move at a uniform pace along with your classmates, a Vancouver GRE tutor can examine your skills across several sessions and draw up a plan of study customized for you, so you won't have to spend time on concepts that you've already mastered, and you can take the opportunity to really dig in to material that you find difficult. If you feel like you've already got a handle on the Quantitative Reasoning section, your instructor can primarily work with you to develop techniques that can build your confidence in the writing section, for example. At 3 hours and 45 minutes, the GRE is lengthy, and in addition to studying content material, GRE tutoring in Vancouver can help you come to understand the structure of the GRE itself, so you can work on test-taking skills that can help you keep your focus and stay on pace.

You'll be able to get lessons that account for your preferences as a learner, so if you find that auditory notes help you learn best, your Vancouver GRE tutor can record your lessons and provide them to you, or if you're more visually-oriented, you can work with flashcards. Individual attention from a Vancouver GRE tutor can make scheduling a lot easier, too. These convenient online sessions allow you to see, hear, and speak with each other using our video chat platform and you can use a virtual whiteboard to facilitate your lessons.

If you give Varsity Tutors a call, we'll be happy to provide you with more information about what you can expect from GRE tutoring in Vancouver and get you signed up. We can often find you a private instructor inside of 24 hours, so you can get started quickly. If you're ready to apply to graduate schools, you've undoubtedly invested a lot of time and effort into your education thus far. Reaching out to a private instructor can be a great way to make the most of your GRE study time.

GRE Tutoring review by Evan in Vancouver
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.

GRE Tutoring review by Neil in Vancouver
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.

GRE Tutoring review by Deirdre in Vancouver
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.

GRE Tutoring review by Travis in Vancouver
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.
