Frequently Asked Questions About GRE Tutoring & Prep
Is GRE Tutoring Worth It?
It's a common question that many people ask themselves when they're preparing for the GRE: "Is GRE tutoring worth it?" And, if so, how much can it help me? Well, there are many benefits to using a tutor as you prepare for the test:
1) A tutor can help you identify weaknesses and improve on them.
2) A tutor can give you an objective perspective on your strengths and weaknesses compared to other test-takers.
3) A tutor can explain the format of each section in a way that helps you understand what types of questions will be asked, how they will be asked, and how to approach them.
4) A tutor can teach you strategies that will help you improve your scores on all three sections of the GRE (Reading Comprehension, Sentence Completion, and Critical Reasoning).
How much do GRE tutors charge?
The cost of a GRE tutoring session varies from tutor to tutor. Tutors at Inspirica Pros charge by the hour, which can range from $100 to $1000 an hour. Others charge per page of practice problems completed, which can be as low as $1 per page. And some tutors charge by the session, which can range from $200 to $500 or more depending on how many hours are included in the price.
What should I look for in a GRE tutor?
When looking for a good GRE tutor, it's important to find one who has experience teaching the subject matter and has taught at least one student who has gotten into a top program at an elite university like Harvard or Stanford. Additionally, you will want to look for the following qualities:
1. A passion for teaching
GRE tutors should love what they do. This passion will come through in their teaching style and help them connect with students on an emotional level.
2. A strong work ethic
GRE tutors should be committed to helping students succeed on the GRE. They should also be able to work independently and meet deadlines without much supervision from their clients or employers.
3. They understand how the test is scored
A good GRE tutor will understand how the test is scored and how best to prepare you for it. They need to be familiar with the format of the test and all its nuances so that they can help you get your highest score.
4. They are good at explaining things clearly
A good GRE tutor will explain concepts clearly and patiently until everyone understands them. They will not try to rush through explanations or skip over parts that might seem difficult or boring — instead, they will take the time necessary to make sure everyone understands everything clearly.
What should I expect from GRE tutoring?
GRE tutoring sessions are structured to give you the most benefit in the shortest amount of time. The first part of your session will be spent reviewing concepts that you need to learn and understand for the exam. We’ll teach those concepts through practice problems, which will help you build up your confidence and familiarity with the material. The second part of your session will be spent answering specific questions about sections of the GRE that are giving you trouble. Our tutors are trained to focus on specific areas where students typically have trouble so they can give personalized advice on how to improve your score.
Is the GRE difficult to pass?
The GRE is a difficult test to pass. But, it's not impossible.
The test is designed to assess your ability to meet the demands of graduate school, so it's not just an IQ test. It tests your grasp of logic and mathematics, as well as your ability to interpret information and write clearly.
But if you prepare properly, you can improve your chances of success. The GRE is a multiple choice exam with plenty of sample questions available online that will help you get a feel for the format and content of the test. A good prep course will provide you with invaluable practice questions and tips on how to approach each section of the exam.
Once you're ready, taking a practice test under timed conditions will give you an idea of how well prepared you are for the real thing.
Is 3 months of preparation enough for the GRE?
Some people take two or three months to prepare for the exam, while others study for just one month. If you have six weeks or less before your test date, you may want to consider signing up for one or two sessions per week. That will give you more time to practice and become comfortable with the material that was covered during those sessions.
How often should I be studying for the GRE?
The GRE is a very difficult test. It requires a lot of time and effort to prepare for it, and you can't expect to do well on it without putting in some serious effort.
This is particularly true if you haven't been studying for months prior to taking the exam, or if you're taking it for the first time. In either case, you should expect to spend at least a couple of hours every day studying for at least two months before taking the exam.
If possible, try to study all day long during this two month period.
If you've already taken the exam once or twice before, then your preparation time will depend on how well you did last time around and how much energy you want to put into improving your score this time around.
If your previous scores were less than stellar (say below 150), then it's likely that there are areas where you need improvement and that these areas are worth focusing on during your preparation period before attempting the test again.
On the other hand, if your previous scores were good (say above 160) then perhaps some additional practice may be all that's necessary before re-taking the test again.
An Overview of the GRE Exam Format
The GRE, or Graduate Record Examinations, is a computer-adaptive test used for admissions into graduate programs in the United States, Canada, and some other countries. The exam, which takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete, contains three sections: an Verbal Section covering vocabulary & reading comprehension, a Quantitative Analysis section focused on arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, and an Analytical Writing section which consists of an essay where students must analyze and issue or an argument.
I had eight days until I was going to be taking the GRE for the second time. I had tried other tutors previously who did not understand my learning style and did not provide the tools I needed to succeed. I was juggling finishing my applications for business school and polishing essays. If things did not go well – I was not going to be applying for my MBA this year. There was a lot going on in my life. I desperately needed to find the right person. Enter Jonathan Arak. Everything I ever wanted from previous tutors – and lacked, Jonathan possessed, exceeding my wildest expectations. He tailored our sessions to how I learned – something deeply meaningful for someone coming from a learning disabled background. He taught me the effective strategies to excel on the exam – even going above and beyond what other tutors did - even something as simple as organizing scratch paper. Each day on our tight schedule, he was attentive and available, texting me about homework and problems, inquiring if I had completed my assignments or had any questions. More than anything he was kind, patient, and helped me get in the proper mindset to do well on the exam. Jonathan gave me a fighting chance to get into business school this year. He is part tutor, part psychiatrist, and all around great individual. He is hands down the most expensive tutor I have ever used, but he is worth every penny.
