GRE Subject Tests Tutoring FAQ
In graduate programs, students focus on one particular area of study, delving deeply into a given subject and eventually becoming authorities in that field. The most successful applicants to graduate programs demonstrate a familiarity with the subject matter at hand, communicating to schools that you are serious about deepening your understanding of a particular field. The GRE Subject Tests are a great way to prove to your top graduate schools that you have already acquired the knowledge base necessary to excel in their programs. In fact, many graduate programs require a subject test, and many others look much more favorably on applications that include impressive GRE Subject Test scores. Performing well on the exam can make the difference in whether or not you are accepted into your most highly desired graduate programs. GRE Subject Test tutoring can really help.
Varsity Tutors can help you to connect with a tutor that offers world-class GRE Subject Test tutoring services in each of the subjects for which there is a corresponding GRE Subject Test. This includes the biological sciences, such as biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology. It also includes chemistry, English literature, mathematics, physics, and psychology.
No matter what field of study you wish to pursue in graduate school, an outstanding test preparation tutor can provide you with expert guidance so that you can gain the knowledge and skills you need to excel on your particular exam. A tutor can identify areas that may need improvement and can resolve any gaps in your understanding. For all subjects, tutors can provide an abundance of practice questions that are both realistic representations of the exam content and are personally tailored to address the specific areas of your subject knowledge that require the greatest attention.
Indeed, one of the many benefits of working with a private tutor is that you can focus on only those areas with which you need the most help, which in turn can lead to improved performance on test day. Since many students find the time limits of the GRE Subject Tests to be a challenge, a tutor can also work with you to find the right pace at which to take the exam. With the help of a tutor, you can learn which types of questions appear most frequently on the exam and how to answer each question correctly and in the most expedient way possible. Many students are surprised to learn that in addition to mastering the material covered on the exam, earning one's highest possible score also depends on employing various test-taking strategies. Tutors can teach you a variety of strategies that enable you to use the predominantly multiple-choice format of the exams to your advantage.
Preparing for the GRE Subject Tests can be a lonely and stressful experience. There is so much material to review that it can seem somewhat overwhelming. Additionally, the stakes are quite high, which only adds to the stress. A private tutor can help with this by reducing the amount of material you have to cover by giving you a good idea as to the type of material that is likely to be on the exam. Additionally, a private tutor can help encourage you and keep you on track when you start to feel overwhelmed.

Recent GRE Subject Tests Tutoring Session Notes
We focused on statistics, experimental design, cognition, and neuropsychology. I also explained some multiple choice exam strategies and how to study from now until the test.
We began by working on percentage problems, taking extra time to orient the student to the methods of approaching problems that will certainly confront him in the exam itself. Then I assigned him the entirety of the percentage section of problems (chapter 12). Following this, we discussed lowest common denominators and least common multiples for some time and assigned chapter 13 on "divisibility and primes."
In the session we started working with her new math prep book, focusing on algebraic concepts for this session. We went over solving linear equations, factoring, and translating from written words to arithmetic. She soon caught on to the concepts.
We continued discussing the topics covered on the quantitative section (other ways to plug in, math vocabulary, plugging in answer choices, and some other topics). We also went over ways to approach the verbal section and how to dissect an argument. We finally discussed the two essays and how to get a high score.
I wanted to cover a little of everything with the student. We did a brief recap of how to study and practice the verbal section, then we reviewed the math practice that she had done. Lastly, she and I discussed the writing practice that she had done and talked about where she can improve there. Overall I feel that she has made some significant progress.
We started by going further in depth into her writing sample for her upcoming college application. We talked about what makes a compelling writing sample, we looked at various examples of her writing, and then we picked a short essay on Francis Bacon to develop grammatically, stylistically, and in terms of content. Next, we continued to run problems from the entry exam. Her struggle with vocabulary improves everyday. She's still getting familiar with the style of the test but continues to improve rapidly.
