How can a tutor assist you in conquering GRE?

College students planning to attend graduate school often struggle to prepare for the critically important Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Varsity Tutors' education directors will match you with the best GRE tutor in Henderson, NV, who might help you to meet your academic and test score goals.

If you want to go to graduate school, you will probably need to take the GRE. This is the standard entrance exam for many of the nation's graduate schools. The GRE consists of Analytical Writing, Verbal, and Quantitative sections. Those section scores are combined into a composite score that graduate schools evaluate as part of an application. The Quantitative section focuses on advanced high school math subjects like geometry and trigonometry. The Verbal section focuses on advanced grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. The Analytical Writing portion includes two essays that test takers must read and evaluate. Some schools require one or more GRE Subject tests, so prospective test takers need to find out what schools of interest require.

Session Summaries by GRE Tutors

Henderson, NV GRE tutoring
We started with practice problems on odds and ends questions. We focused on alternative strategies for combination and permutation questions. He should use the strategies when the problems are small enough to do by counting out all the examples, or when the problem is irregular and can't be done by drawing out spaces and multiplying the number of things that can go in each space. If he doesn't know what to do he can try writing the first few numbers of a sequence and seeing if a pattern emerges. We also looked more at probability. He needs to remember that sometimes finding the probability of what needs to not happen and subtracting that number from 1 is easier than trying to find what does need to happen. I also reminded him that, as a rule of thumb, if the numbers are getting hard to calculate then he is using the wrong strategy as the GRE always provides a tactic to get the answer without long calculations. We also worked together on group problems and when to subtract or add 1 to a difference of two numbers depending on whether one, both, or none of the end numbers are included. I reminded him to always look for opportunities to make up his own numbers or plug in the answer choices into the problem as well. After that we did a brief review of the important concepts relating to triangles and circles, and he did a few relevant practice problems. Finally, I introduced the writing section. We talked about the form of the two essays. Then I briefly outlined how he should divide up his time to compose his issue essay in 30 minutes. For homework I gave him a quantitative test and an issue essay to do. I asked him to do both in the time allotted by the GRE.

We talked about the Quantitative questions, focusing on concepts and doing some example problems. We went over some basics about data sets and data set questions, including the finding the mean, median, and mode of the data; we covered some basics about evaluating and simplifying algebraic expressions, including the comparison-type questions; we talked about exponents and prime factorization; and we briefly talked about triangles and parallel line problems. I strongly recommended that the student use the calculator provided on the exam whenever it would save time. I also encouraged her to do as much practice as she could tolerate, as her unease with the material will fade with more exposure.

The student and I finished our discussions of the content on the GRE today, focusing on difficult geometry, counting, and probability skills. We examined the different ways that the multiplication principle comes up in probability questions, and that offered a nice opportunity to recap basic principles of arithmetic. He didn't seem to have any problems with reading tables and graphs, so we didn't focus much on that. I left him with practice, and instructions to attempt at least one full-length practice exam before we meet next.

For our second lesson, we continued with the math sections. We finished the arithmetic/ basic math content chapter and continued with the algebra chapter. We're making pretty good progress, about 1 math chapter per week. The student also ordered the math practice problems book, which should be good practice for her.

We worked through problems from a practice GRE quantitative test today. We spent a lot of time reviewing previous concepts. The student is going to try some more questions for review practice tonight, and we'll be doing our post-test practice GRE test tomorrow.

During our session today, the student and I spent the first hour going over basic math -- she struggles a bit with quadratic equations, so I recommended that she use the quadratic formula when factoring is very difficult/not obvious. In addition to quadratic equations, we also reviewed algebra (translating English to math), where she did very well. After basic math, we spent some time on general quantitative comparison questions. She works slowly, but most of the questions she is able to answer, she answers correctly. In the future, we will continue to work on her speed as well as on basic math concepts (coordinate geometry, ratios, etc.).
