For anyone seeking to gain entry into postgraduate programs at the University of Texas at San Antonio or Texas A&M University-San Antonio, a prep course could be beneficial as a way to get to know what to expect on the exam. The test is made up of three sections that are meant to measure your aptitude in certain key skills that are necessary for the rigors of higher-level academic work. The GRE is administered around the world in upwards of 160 countries. Thousands of universities accept your score as a part of their admissions requirements. It has three sections and is typically completed on a computer, with a total testing time of 3 hours and 45 minutes.
What could a San Antonio GRE course help me learn?
The GRE is made up of three sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and an Analytical Writing portion. Each section tackles different skills. Learning how to approach each portion could help to prepare you for what you will face on test day.
Verbal Reasoning looks at many different skills, particularly your ability to understand the meanings of individual words and sentences. You'll look at portions of text and be expected to summarize, analyze, and interpret meanings from each. Every passage varies in length, but there are around ten passages total with one to six questions on each. The total time allowed on this section is 60 minutes with a scoring range between 130 to 170.
On the Quantitative Reasoning portion, you are scored on your ability to understand basic math skills and concepts. It also tests your problem-solving and reasoning skills. Some of the content areas that you will find on the test include data analysis, algebra, geometry, and basic arithmetic. You will find basic question types that include numeric entry, quantitative comparison, and multiple choice. You have an hour and ten minutes to complete this section of the test and will be graded on a scale from 130 to 170.
The Analytical Writing section is concerned primarily with your command of written English. You will be expected to clearly articulate your ideas and support your thoughts with strong examples and sound reasoning. There are two separate tasks, one requiring that you analyze an argument, the other that you analyze an issue. You will have 30 minutes to complete each task with a score being assigned on a scale from zero to six.

...know what I was doing, and I hadn't learned from the expert teachers who had accomplished so much. Even then, there were still glimpses of exactly how tutoring was supposed to be. I was teaching math to a student who was smart but math wasn't his thing. At the end of the tutoring session, I got him to say "wow", and he was someone that looked hard to impress, and of course math is a...

...My ability to cater and adapt to each individual student comes from growing up in a military family that had to constantly move. Moving constantly from birth to the age of eighteen instilled in me the ability to adapt quickly to change and it gave me the wisdom to recognize when something is working and not working to make the necessary changes. Not only has my education given me the skills necessary to tutor and...

...years old. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing their attitudes change toward Math. When I was in the 8th grade, the 7th grade teacher was our Math teacher. Her 7th graders were terrible and she just wanted to relax so I taught our Math class for most of the time at the age of 12 and 13. When I was in the 12th grade my teacher wouldn't let me take Advanced Math because she said I already...

...retention rather than merely providing the answers. My teaching philosophy also focuses on test taking strategies and reasoning that compliments the subject leading to a very well rounded individual. I didn't always have the most motivating and passionate teachers, so it took time for me to discover my passion on my own. Hopefully as a tutor I can be the inspiration for young students to pursue the sciences early on in their careers.

...with hopes of attending medical school in the near future. I have multiple years of experience tutoring Biology courses with an emphasis on Human Anatomy and Physiology. Throughout the tutoring and learning process, I try to incorporate real life examples of how Biology and Anatomy and Physiology are all around us at any given moment. By doing this, I think it not only helps students learn more efficiently, but it makes learning more enjoyable overall.
