How can a PCAT Verbal Ability tutor help you?
In reviewing for the Pharmacy College Admission Test, or PCAT, many students focus the majority of their studying time on the exam's Chemistry, Biology, and Quantitative Ability sections, only to have the Verbal Ability section sneak up on them on test day and negatively impact their score. The PCAT Verbal Ability section presents a challenging array of analogy and fill-in-the-blank questions, the rigor of which often catches students off guard. The PCAT's analogy questions can involve single words, single-concept phrases, or famous historical figures, and both the analogy and fill-in-the-blank questions require test-takers to work through each potential answer with an eye for subtle differences in meaning. It takes a very specific style of studying and practice to be sufficiently prepared for this section of the exam.
Over the course of your academic career, you have likely taken classes devoted to helping you master the content covered on the PCAT's Chemistry, Biology, and Quantitative Ability sections. However, you may never have received any formal instruction in how to best approach the Verbal Ability section's questions, and you may find that impersonal resources and class-based preparation simply don't provide you with the customized instruction you need to feel fully prepared. In many areas of study, a traditional classroom environment does not provide the proper amount of personalized instruction for each student to fully understand the material at hand, and PCAT preparation can often be one of these areas. One-on-one PCAT Verbal Ability tutoring can provide you with focused instruction that addresses your specific strengths and weaknesses and help you approach this section of the PCAT with confidence. Varsity Tutors can connect you with experienced tutors in your area that have taken the exam themselves and can tell you what to expect when test day rolls around. When it comes to standardized testing, students can often be experts in all the material that is being covered but still be unprepared for the format of the exam and style of the questions to be asked. Private tutors can not only help you to fill in any gaps in your knowledge but also instill a confidence in you by explaining exactly what the test will consist of.
