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.

Whether you're just starting your review or beginning to feel study-fatigue, supplementing your studies with expert instruction can be the boost you need to get to the finish line.

How does Chicago GRE tutoring differ from classroom learning?

While classroom learning boasts many benefits, such as collaboration and group discussions, teachers must follow a set course curriculum, making it challenging to teach to the needs of each student. Also, large classroom sizes make it difficult for teachers to adapt their teaching style to the preferred learning style of individual students.

Furthermore, classroom learning doesn't allow time for each student to receive answers to their questions, meaning that you might leave class confused and without a path forward. When you study with Chicago GRE tutors, you can be assured that you will receive the undivided attention of an expert instructor who has the skills and knowledge needed to help you reach for your academic goals.

In contrast to traditional classroom learning, studying with a private instructor allows you to customize a lesson plan that addresses your areas of need directly. Since you will be the sole focus of your instructor during your sessions, Chicago GRE tutors can take the time to learn your strengths, goals, and interests to create lessons that excite and engage you.

If you're struggling to learn the necessary skills needed for the Analytical Writing section of the GRE, it could be because you lack an instructor capable of relating the material to you in ways that you can relate to and understand. There is no uniform way of teaching subject material. Rather than taking a broad approach, Chicago GRE tutoring can provide learners with an individualized learning experience catered to their preferred learning preferences.

By adapting their teaching style to your learning style, Chicago GRE tutors can help increase your understanding of complex topics and increase your retention rate. For example, if you're an auditory learner, your instructor can engage you in open discussions and teach using short lectures.

To help you with the Reading Comprehension section of the GRE, your instructor can have you read passages aloud and provide you with in the moment guidance aimed at helping you hone your analysis and evaluation skills by teaching you to think critically. If you're a visual learner, your instructor can use the virtual whiteboard in our Live Learning Platform to write out the key arguments of a text, draw concept maps, or break down complex algebraic formulas.

What are the benefits of studying with Chicago GRE tutors near me?

The GRE is composed of three sections: Analytical Writing, Quantitative Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning. In addition, the GRE may contain an Experimental Section and a Research Section, both of which are unscored. Throughout the exam, you can expect to encounter a variety of questions, ranging from multiple-choice, text completion, sentence completion, and write-in responses.

In addition to bolstering your foundational subject knowledge, it is also important to refine your test-taking skills before exam day. Chicago GRE tutors can help you refine your time management, critical reasoning, and logical thinking skills to help you work more efficiently during the exam. It is common to feel rushed during a timed exam, so developing a steady, efficient pace is essential. To help familiarize you with the tempo and rhythm of the GRE, your instructor can assign GRE practice quizzes. Your instructor can also use the results of these quizzes to identify knowledge gaps and incorporate them into future lessons.

Since you will be learning from an individualized lesson plan, you can maximize your review time by skimming over material that you're already familiar with. For instance, if you're confident in your quantitative reasoning skills, you can skip ahead to other sections of the GRE. It's important to note that your lessons will evolve as your needs change.

If you quickly master the skills and knowledge needed for the Analytical Writing section, you can shift gears and move on to your next area of need. Also, if you get stuck on a tricky concept, you can spend as much time as you need on the concept until you're confident in your proficiency. Your instructor can also employ a variety of teaching methods until they find one that advances your understanding of challenging topics.

To help you cover more ground during your review and maximize your retention rate, Chicago GRE tutors can also help you refine your study skills. For instance, your instructor can coach you on effective note taking, identifying signposts, and memorization techniques.

Using mnemonics can help your memorization abilities, making it easier to recall important information on test day. Whatever your needs may be, Chicago GRE tutoring can work with you to develop a personalized lesson plan aimed at helping you reach for your test goals.
