The GRE is a very challenging exam, and most tutors won't know the proper way to approach each question type proficiently - especially the quantitative comparison questions (which are unique to the GRE).

Just hiring a math, verbal, or writing tutor won't be enough to get you through the exam. It is a graduate level exam for a reason. You need a tutor with the resources and insight to show you how to best tackle each question correctly.

About Aalok

My name is Aalok and I am a full time professional tutor. I can help students who are struggling, students who are looking to excel, and everyone else in between. I strive for complete satisfaction and never charge for a session unless you are completely satisfied. I've even worked with other tu

What can I say about the GRE? It is a lot of work to prepare for, but there are skills that can help you study and retain what you have studied so that you test out at a higher score.
When I took the GRE I crammed for weeks. I wish I had known some of the skills to prepare
that I can share with you now!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!

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.

Gabriel
Over the years I’ve had many tutors, worked with many professors and teachers, and I have to say that Marie is by far in the top 5% of all educators that I’ve seemed guidance from. I’ve taken the GRE multiple times, yet was only a few points away from my required Verbal score. I saw the reviews that Marie had and decided that she would be the best person to help me achieve my goal and I was right. She worked with me to develop a study plan based on what worked best with my schedule rather than taking one size fits all approach to my learning. She took extra steps to send my daily assignments that were challenging and helped me grow. She took time to help me get to the root cause of why I wasn’t answering questions correctly by not just moving on to the next problem just because I got it correct. She really cares. We talked constantly and she was always there when I had a question day or night. I plan to apply her methods and all that I’ve learned from her while attending the university that I was recently accepted to! Thank you Marie! Anyone seeking a truly dedicated and inspiring tutor for GRE Verbal should definitely choose Marie. Simply the best!
Gabriel
First of all, Marie is a very pleasant person. Working with someone that is nice makes learning so much better. She immediately provided me with several new techniques for studying that will allow me to focus on the areas that I am struggling with. She broke information down to where it was easy for me to understand and reemphasized key points that she was teaching to ensure that I understood them. More importantly, she asked me if I understood what she was teaching me rather than assume that I comprehended everything immediately, which many instructors I've worked with do not tend to do. Lastly, she was also willing to adjust her schedule to help me get the study sessions in that I need. I'm glad that I am working with her to up my GRE score!

About the GRE

The Graduate Records Exam (GRE) is an important test that many graduate schools and business programs require. Divided into three, two-part sections, the test is designed to measure a student's writing abilities, quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and critical thinking skills. Test takers have just under four hours to complete the multiple choice and written portions of the exa

...

m. 

Like the ACT and SAT exams that helped you get accepted to college, the GRE is designed to test your smarts — not necessarily facts that you already know. For this reason, you can't cram for the exam. You can do some practice in an attempt to expand your vocabulary and basic mathematical skills, if needed, but the real work's done in understanding the types of questions that are asked on the test and how best to answer them. 

When it comes to taking--and acing--the GRE, it’s best to know what to expect ahead of time. That’s where a GRE tutor can help. They’ll provide you with all the tips and tricks you need to feel confident going into exam day.

Why Sign up for GRE Prep Lessons?

If you remember taking the SAT and/or ACT, then you probably already understand why why working with a GRE tutor is a good choice. These standardized tests aren't designed to measure the number of facts in your brain, but your brain's ability to reason, write, quantitate, and think logically. Every test has its own “style,” and working with someone who is familiar with this specific test is important. If you have trouble with a specific subject, such as math, then a specialized GRE math tutor can help.

Approaching the test, unpracticed and unfamiliar topics can hurt your scores simply because you're not used to the types of questions being asked, and you're not certain of the types of answers the test wants. In GRE tutoring classes, you can raise your scores significantly and improve your chances of acceptance into even the most competitive graduate programs.  Your GRE tutor online will help you get comfortable with the format and style, so there won’t be any surprises when you take the exam.

The Benefits of a GRE Tutor Online

It seems long gone are the days of driving to a classroom and receiving in-person instruction. If you’ve looked into taking any kind of class or tutoring session lately, you’ve probably noticed the plethora of online options. That’s because more virtual classrooms are available than ever before. You’ll find kindergarten classes turning to remote platforms, as well as high schools and universities offering remote courses, too. You can find nearly any subject taught online these days.

Here at TakeLessons, we, too, provide remote learning opportunities. With our online tutoring sessions, you can meet with your private instructor entirely over the internet. All you need is a smartphone or computer with a webcam, along with access to an internet connection, and you can meet with a GRE tutor online wherever and whenever.

When you sign up with one of our GRE tutors, you get to decide when you want to receive instruction. Do you work better later in the evening after school or work? Or would you rather get tutored on the weekends when your schedule is more flexible? Our tutors will work with your timeline to best accommodate your needs. Above all, our tutoring sessions are convenient and hassle-free.

The Best Way to Get GRE Help

Although you can find plenty of free GRE classes and preparation advice online, the best way to get ready is with one-on-one instruction from a private GRE tutor. Working with a private teacher, you'll receive individualized instruction and undivided attention that you couldn't get from online videos or a larger class setting. You'll overcome challenges and improve your test scores fast. Whether you have certain questions or need special practice in specific subjects, your GRE tutor online will be there with you every step of the way.

Plus, every private lesson is different. Private tutors customize each lesson to meet the needs of their students, using your preferred learning styles and subject matter. In GRE tutoring classes, you'll be able to focus on the test subjects you feel need the most work. Most teachers recommend scheduling between four and twelve weeks of tutoring preparation. Your teacher can adjust a study syllabus to fit your upcoming test date. No matter if you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student when it comes to GRE preparation, your GRE tutor will get you where you want to go.

Sample Curriculum for Beginner GRE Preparation

Early in your preparation for the test, your GRE math tutor will need to establish a baseline from which you'll work to improve your scores throughout your preparation sessions. You start by taking an initial practice test and work from there. Your teacher might cover the following:

  • Take a practice test for a baseline score
  • Set a goal for a target GRE score
  • Identify what needs improvement
  • Learn how you can better take the test

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate GRE Preparation

In intermediate sessions, you'll be more familiar with the GRE and working hard to learn strategies to improve your test-taking skills. Since you can't exactly cram for the GRE, your teacher will help you learn strategies to give you a better approach to answering questions and pacing yourself within the time constraints. You might cover the following:

  • Introduction to strategies for time management
  • Lessons in quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing
  • Deductive reasoning strategies for multiple choice questions
  • Learn strategies for answering each type of question on the GRE

Sample Curriculum for Advanced GRE Preparation

Advanced lessons will happen as you begin to approach your official testing date. You might be given another practice test. You'll also work on improving your scores with new strategies and approaches. Your teacher might cover the following:

  • Prepare for a GRE subject test
  • Take practice tests, mimicking actual GRE conditions
  • Learn testing strategies for answering math questions without the on-screen calculator
  • Boost your vocabulary with common words tested on the GRE
