Washington DC GRE Tutoring FAQ

If you're looking for a way to have more personalized test prep, Varsity Tutors can connect you with expert Washington DC GRE tutors in as little as 24 hours. The Graduate Record Examination, or GRE, is a standardized test administered via computer testing and used by schools around the world to assess your readiness in handling graduate-level work. It has three sections Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning.

When you apply to a graduate program or graduate business program in the United States or abroad, you may be asked to submit your GRE results together with other requirements like your academic record and recommendation letters. An excellent score on the test could improve your chances of admission into your preferred graduate school, so it's important that you take your test prep seriously. Working with an expert Washington DC GRE tutoring instructor can provide the support you need to increase your skills and reach for your best possible exam score.

How is Washington DC GRE tutoring different from classroom learning?

In a traditional prep course, the class instructor needs to stick to a set curriculum and make sure that students' questions are properly addressed. They also have to maintain a good pace for the class so that lessons don't go beyond the allocated lesson time.

When you study through Washington DC GRE tutoring, you don't need to sit through a fixed curriculum. You can choose which topics you want to focus on and there's no pressure to move on to a new one until you are comfortable to do so. If you're already confident with your skills in answering Quantitative Reasoning questions, but need to work on your skills for Analytical Writing such as articulating complex concepts effectively and clearly, supporting ideas with examples and reasons, and examining claims using accompanying evidence, you and your instructor can dedicate more of your lesson time working on these skills.

Want to avoid distractions while you're studying? If you study with Washington DC GRE tutors, you can do just that. You'll meet your instructor online and study in a distraction-free location of your choice. This means you don't need to deal with chatty classmates, beeping or ringing electronic devices, and other noises that could break your focus.

You can attend your lessons from home or from locations like the Georgetown Public Library or the Watha T Daniel-Shaw Library. If you want to avoid the negative effects of fragmented attention, then private instruction could just be the perfect solution for you to have a peaceful and focused review.

Another great thing about private lessons is that you get the full attention of your instructor throughout your session. If a question suddenly pops up in your head, you can ask it directly to your mentor. You don't need to wait for your turn, which means you can immediately correct your mistakes or clear up a misunderstood point while the idea is still fresh in your mind.

What are the benefits of studying with Washington DC GRE tutors near me?

If you've ever experienced getting stuck on a GRE practice question and spending many hours trying to find the answer online, you know the importance of having a knowledgeable mentor by your side when you're studying for the test. Investing in test prep materials like guides and sample questions or reviewers is a good move, but what do you do when there are answers or concepts you just can't comprehend?

You can't afford to waste your limited test prep time aimlessly searching the internet. Having access to experienced and patient Washington DC GRE tutors who can readily provide you the explanations and answers you're looking for can make the difference between an efficient and effective review and a totally frustrating one.

When you do your test prep through Washington DC GRE tutoring, you can have a customized study plan. Your private instructor can assess your skills, strengths, and weaknesses during your first few sessions and use the information they learn about you in designing a lesson plan that meets your learning needs. Traditional prep courses usually follow a one-size-fits-all approach to coaching candidates, which might not be the most efficient way to address your core difficulties.

If you're not doing well on Verbal Reasoning, for instance, your instructor can provide exercises aimed at developing the skills you need for that part of the exam such as summarizing a passage, identifying strengths and weaknesses of a position, and reaching conclusions from partial information. You can put your efforts into things that can have the most impact on your progress.

The benefits of private instruction don't end with getting help with practice questions or developing your subject-specific knowledge. Washington DC GRE tutors can also impart test-taking techniques that could help you navigate your way out of tough questions during the test. One of the most useful techniques you can learn is blind guessing (eliminating obviously incorrect answers). This can save you precious test time and increase your chances of picking the right answer in a multiple-choice question.

Another technique you can learn from your mentor is identifying keywords that could lead you to the right (or wrong) answer. Your mentor can train you on how to interpret the words used in a question in order to avoid question traps. If you encounter an item that seems to have more than one correct or possible answer, keywords found on the question can help you make the right choice.

How can I fit Washington DC GRE tutoring, into my schedule?

Traditional prep courses that require you to travel to a physical review center might not be the best option, especially if you already have a jam-packed schedule. With this in mind, we created a Live Learning Platform that makes it easier to fit GRE test prep sessions into your busy day. Just let us know when you want to study and we will find a Washington DC GRE tutoring instructor who is also able to meet you on your preferred schedule.

Online lessons on our Live Learning Platform take away the need to commute. Instead of spending hours on the road, you can have more time to do actual GRE study at your home or any other quiet location you prefer. All you need is a reliable internet connection to meet your instructor via video chat.

Aside from the video chat feature, our platform also has a shared document editor that's perfect for revising essay responses or when you want to upload documents to show to your mentor. Washington DC GRE tutors can use the digital whiteboard of the platform when they want to provide additional reminders or in-depth explanations about a topic you're trying to learn.

All sessions with Washington DC GRE tutors are recorded on our platform as well. This means it's easy to go back and watch a past lesson if you need to review a piece of advice or strategy you received from your mentor.
