No matter where you are in your college education, Varsity Tutors can help get you into the Spokane GRE prep course that is best for you. If you are contemplating an advanced degree, now is the time to start thinking about taking the GRE. The GRE, which is taken by students who are interested in pursuing graduate school, is a test that many graduate programs will accept as evidence of your academic proficiency. If you are interested in enrolling in a graduate program at nearby schools such as Gonzaga University or Whitworth University, then you'll want to at least get acquainted with this test. At this point, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed and wondering how to even start. If this sounds like you, consider a Spokane GRE course.
When you sign up for this course, you will be able to study with a highly qualified instructor who can help guide you through your preparations to take the GRE. In a prep course, you can learn about how the test works, the way it is constructed, and the sort of material that you will be tested on. If you have been struggling with GRE topics, then a prep course may be the perfect course of action for you. A Spokane GRE course can help you work through the material and boost your confidence in your own ability to take this important exam.
What topics will I study in a Spokane GRE course?
The GRE is composed of three major sections: Verbal Reasoning, Analytical Writing, and Quantitative Reasoning. In order to do well on the exam, you must be proficient in all of these areas. You should expect to spend about three hours and 45 minutes on the test. In most areas, the exam is computer-based. Let's have a look at each section in turn to get an idea of what they will entail.
The Verbal Reasoning section of the test will evaluate your ability to critically analyze passages, draw logical conclusions from them, and determine the strength of a position. You will be given around ten passages that you must consider before answering one to six questions about each. Additionally, you must complete tasks such as filling in blank portions of passages and determining the best way to end a sentence. You will have 60 minutes for this section of the exam.
When you get to the Analytical Writing section of the test, you will be required to demonstrate your ability to communicate clearly on advanced topics, develop an intelligent and well-reasoned discussion, and use specific examples to support an idea. You must have a strong ability to plan out a lucid response and then proofread it for potential mistakes. In this section, one task will involve analyzing an issue and another will involve analyzing an argument. These tasks will each last 30 minutes, so the entire section will take you an hour.
Once you begin the Quantitative Reasoning section, you must display your mathematical prowess. This portion of the exam will test how well you understand mathematical topics such as algebra, data analysis, and geometry. Here you must demonstrate a strong ability to efficiently work through math problems. You will have a total of one hour and ten minutes to complete this part of the test.
It should also be noted that you may encounter an Experimental section or a Research section. These are two different unscored sections that the makers of the exam add to try out questions that they may use in the future. The Experimental section will not be identified and will be located somewhere in the Quantitative Reasoning or Verbal Reasoning sections. The Research section will be at the end of the test, and it will be identified. It is optional.
How could a Spokane GRE class help prepare me?
Regardless of whether you are a young undergraduate who wishes to pursue an advanced degree or an experienced professional who wants to go back to school, prep classes for the GRE can benefit you by offering collaborative sessions with an instructor and a group of classmates. Perhaps you've been agonizing over the proper way of constructing a strong analysis of an argument in the Analytical Writing section. This is a topic that you could discuss with your instructor and your peers. Or maybe you want advice on how to solve math problems more efficiently. This is also something you could bring up. You can schedule additional one-on-one time with your instructor, just in case you are having a particularly rough time with a certain topic.
We understand the importance of convenience in your life. This is why the courses have been set up to be as accessible as possible. New course sections start on a weekly basis and you may choose between taking a two-week session or a four-week session. This way you can enroll in the course that works best for your schedule. In addition, these courses take place in a virtual environment. This means that you don't have to worry about fighting your way through traffic or finding the right parking spot. As long as you have access to an internet connection, you can participate in courses from any location that you want. Just fire up your computer and enjoy!

...Constructivism, active listening, and clear communication are imperative in the education and tutoring processes. It also helps to enjoy it! I tend to use pop-culture and real life examples to illustrate lessons/ points when teaching as they are the most immediate and relevant ways for students to learn. The ability to associate classroom theories and principles to real life gives the lessons significance. Hobbies: I played basketball up until college, and I still enjoy playing....

Matthew: Spokane GRE course instructor
...mathematics education, and increasing diversity in STEM majors and careers. Currently, I am working on a thesis in discrete geometry and combinatorics, as well as doing research for UCSF where I design machine vision software. I am well positioned to motivate and justify nearly every aspect of math education as being crucial for a future career in science, engineering or education. I bring this emphasis on real world relevance every time I teach.... The philosophy that I bring to every class and tutoring session is that it is going to be a period of high intensity training. However I assume that for the student, it is only the beginning of their training, and that for every hour spent in class in a tutoring session with me, at least one hour will be spent in self-study to completely master the topic. Together we lay the groundwork and the pace for that study. Tutoring is not be an extension of lecture, but a training session where I expect a high level of student effort, attention and creativity. My method is to quickly develop a casual but engaging rapport with the student so that we feel comfortable making mistakes in front of each other and are able to collaborate on a learning method rather than drilling problems. The aim is twofold: to help students realize the level of commitment, work, and intellectual awareness required to really master subjects, as well as to instill confidence that they are capable of doing so.

John: Spokane GRE course instructor
I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in 2008, the oldest English speaking acting conservatory in the world. I graduated Summa from University of St Thomas with a degree in English as well.In spite of my English background, I do a lot of math and physics tutoring. I'm a huge Red Sox fan and love watching detective shows when I have free time.... Positivity. Always. I believe that if a student is given positive tools and is allowed to understand the material rather than be lectured at, they're more likely to do well in the future.
