How can a tutor help you prepare for the GRE Subject Test in Biology?
The GRE Subject Test in Biology provides a platform for you to demonstrate mastery of biological concepts when applying to graduate programs in the life sciences. Unlike previous standardized tests in biology that you may have taken ' such as the AP Biology exam or the SAT Subject Test in Biology ' material on the GRE Subject Test in Biology is extremely detailed. The breadth of biological concepts covered and the degree of depth to which they must be examined combine to make this one of the most challenging exams a prospective graduate student may face. Proper preparation for the exam can help you become accustomed to the testing style, reduce test day apprehension, and provide you with the tools to address the different types of questions you will face. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with the ideal learning partner, skilled in providing GRE Biology tutoring.
This area of tutoring is designed to cater to each student's unique skill set and tutoring goals. Perhaps you feel confident in your mastery of the organismal biology subsection, but need to focus your review on certain aspects of molecular biology. Maybe you simply need to focus on reviewing certain transcription factors. Whether you have already spent weeks reviewing and mastering material or if your first lesson is your initial exposure to exam content, your GRE Subject Test in Biology tutor can adapt your lesson curriculum to address your particular needs and concerns. As you work, your learning plan can be adapted to accommodate your progress. Your tutor can extend the time dedicated to reviewing subjects you find to be particularly complex and glaze over the content with which you are already familiar.
Your tutor has taken the exam before, prepared for it, and scored well, so they know exactly how to reach such a goal. The GRE Subject Test in Biology is particularly challenging because it consists of a lot of content, in a total of 190 questions. They are multiple choice, but don't let that fool you. You will have to answer questions focused on detailed laboratory and field situations, and there will be prompts to analyze diagrams and the results of experiments. Three major areas are covered ' organismal biology, cellular and molecular biology, and ecology and evolution. Each subset covers many, many topics. Your class should have covered all of these, but it can be hard to remember every single fact, and some will undoubtedly be easier to digest than others. From DNA and reproduction to nutrition, respiration, and the history of life, and everything in between, your tutor will identify your strong points and what you need to focus on.
Private tutoring affords you the flexibility to alter your curriculum, unlike traditional classroom review or study groups that are static and must follow a specific curriculum. This customizability can prove invaluable as you work through the multitude of concepts covered on this particular exam. Your GRE Subject Test tutoring can also be seamlessly incorporated into your weekly schedule. Tutors are available to meet in person in the evenings and on weekends, and can even tutor face-to-face online for those students with particularly busy schedules. We recognize that this exam is only one of many commitments, so your independent tutor works to accommodate your needs when scheduling sessions.
Whether you feel most uncertain about the cellular and molecular biology, organismal biology, or ecology and evolution subsection, or if you are concerned about your composite score and need advice on where to begin your review, a committed instructor can be of assistance in reaching your learning goals.
