Private GRE Teacher

I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Hi there! First, I understand the pain of taking a standardized test, it sucks and we have to deal it somehow:) I went through the GRE preparation myself and got a pretty good score (170+163). I would give you a diagnosis mini-test at beginning, and create a customized study plan for you. Of course, I will share with you my secrets and study tips, and show you how to apply them in a real timed test condition.
I also have all the preparation materials of GRE and a software that you could take timed test, which means you do not have to purchase anything more for your study. I look forward to talking to you and helping you to reaching your ideal scores!

The GRE is a complex, demanding test. For over 9 years, I've helped many undergraduate students prepare for all five sections: GRE Analytical Writing, GRE Verbal, and GRE math. Concept review and strategic problem solving are part of my approach for Quantitative Reasoning, especially quantitative comparison questions. For reading comprehension, text completion, and sentence equivalence questions, I coach students through them using effective techniques and intensive vocabulary practice. The GRE writing section requires strong critical thinking skills and logical reasoning to achieve a scaled score of 5 or higher. As a professional writer and editor who has tutored test prep for many different timed essays, I clarify the GRE writing standards for students so they can expand their brainstorming and outline process, draft strong responses in minimal time, and strengthen their writing with constructive editing. It is challenging to score high on the GRE, but with organized test prep and a

About Natalie

During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn

Natalie has taught me numerous of great skills which are effective in a good way. She has taught me Algebra 1 and English and ever since she was my tutor, my grade started increasing by A LOT after 3-4 lessons! I'm so thankful that she is my tutor even though i always ask her numerous of questions but she is very patient and fun to talk with. Thank you SO much Natalie! I highly recommend her as your tutor!

"Leona is an exceptional teacher. From the very beginning of our lesson she made me feel comfortable with getting to the root cause of the mistakes that I’ve made on past GRE exams. She is easy to work with and didn’t waste a moment of our time. I felt relaxed and the content that I was shaky on before we started the lesson was made clear and I feel more confident than I’ve ever felt in answer the specific questions we went over, which were quite a few. Extremely grateful. I’m also happy that she assigned homework before our next lesson. It really helps gauge progress. Excellent teacher!"

"Daniel helped me with GRE math. We worked on problem solving, numeric entry and quantitative comparisons, all areas I really struggled with. I needed to raise my score by a few points, and I'm confident that Daniel's sessions will allow me to achieve that when I take my test next. Sessions were extremely useful and efficient. He used an online whiteboard, along with Skype, so that I had an easy to see breakdown of all of the problems. Not only did he help with problems, but he also gave me multiple resources to use in the future when studying for the GRE (e.g. great websites, formulas, etc.) I recommend him to everyone who needs help in math!"
