What Does a Jacksonville GRE Class Cover?
The GRE consists of three standard sections: Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. The Analytical Writing segment is a two-part section that is 60 minutes long. First, you must analyze an issue, then the test requires you to analyze an argument. Each task is 30 minutes, during which you must assess what it asks you to do, plan a response, and write your analysis. Since your response will be evaluated in detail, it's best to leave to time to check for errors and clarity and make sure you are articulate, provide relevant supporting examples and reasoning, and showcase your command of written English.
In the Verbal Reasoning section, there are three types of questions. The first is reading comprehension questions in which you provide answers related to passages. These may be one or several paragraphs long. Approximately 10 passages are included on the GRE. The exam has test completion questions as well, where you choose the best answer for blank sections of short passages, while sentence equivalence questions use the same principle, except you must pick a choice that best fits the incomplete sentence. Many different skills are tested here. Your understanding of words and sentences, ability to summarize passages, analyze a text, and reach conclusions with partial information is crucial, as is your ability to reason about a whole from parts of a text.
The GRE also tests your math skills in the Quantitative Reasoning section. Everything from arithmetic and algebra to geometry and data analysis is covered in assessing your problem-solving skills and logical reasoning abilities. Some questions are multiple choice, while others are numeric entry types and quantitative comparisons.
A unique feature of the GRE is the inclusion of an Experimental or Research section. These are both unscored. If your exam has an Experimental section to test out potential future questions, it will be embedded in the Verbal or Quantitative Reasoning sections. It is not identified so you won't know which questions are experimental. A Research section is sometimes used instead, but is identified at the end of the test and is optional. The GRE has several components that require the appropriate test-taking skills to perform your best, which is where a Jacksonville GRE course can help you reach for important goals in.
How Does a Jacksonville GRE Class Help Me Prepare for the Exam?
Every class is led by a dedicated instructor who has been interviewed to ensure they are knowledgeable about the GRE and able to collaborate with students remotely. An online collaborative environment brings your study efforts front-and-center and involves groups of your peers. Therefore, you don't have to study alone and potentially miss out on key subject reviews and learning opportunities. There may be subjects you haven't covered in a while or skills gaps you're not aware of. An online classroom gives you comprehensive coverage of what's on the test so you can be prepared.
Your instructor can also discuss the GRE itself. One of the great things about a Jacksonville GRE course is you can work on practice exams and questions. Even work with other participants to help one another understand things like advanced algebra for the Quantitative Reasoning section or the language and structure of passages in the Verbal Reasoning section. The more practice you receive, the better your pacing might be, with no surprises as to the type of reasoning skills demanded on the exam.
The scheduling is flexible as well. Classes begin concurrently on a weekly basis, and you can choose from two- and four-week courses that fit within your schedule. Varsity Tutors has made the process extremely convenient so you can get the help you need. If you're not learning as fast as your online classmates or are stuck on a tricky concept, request a one-on-one session with your instructor. They'll be glad to provide you with extra help in understanding whatever subject you need to know.
How Do I Get Started with a Jacksonville GRE Course?

...students who love math, want to love math, or haven't yet found a love for math! I believe everyone can grasp mathematical concepts if it's presented in a way that draws on someone's experiences and interests and is adequately broken down by someone with patience. I believe I am that person! I've taught at a K-12 math and science academy and an alternative school for 16-21 year olds. I was a math major and love...

When I was younger I found that my brain didn't quite learn the same way as others and tests were way more difficult for me.

...a positive experience. That means working with the student to get them on board *wanting* to learn the material for themselves, independent of requirements. One of my favorite ways to do this is to explore the student's passions and interests and then relate the material they need to learn to something they love. In other cases, a positive experience requires eliminating frustration and/or fear of failure. I've always been a successful student, but my efforts...

...I will be graduating with both an accounting and finance degree in December. I have always had a passion for teaching and have tutored in subjects ranging from Calculus to SAT prep. However, as a UNF tutor and SI, I primarily assisted students with accounting classes.
