GRE 1-on-1 Personalized Tutoring Program

The GRE 1-on-1 Personalized Tutoring Program broadly follows the class room program, but teachers can pace themselves according to a single student’s requirement, so it takes less time.

The GRE 1-on-1 Personalized Tutoring Program covers each topic in four stages :

  1. Analysis of Student Performance – The program commences with a Benchmarking Test taken by the student at home or our learning centre. The reported performance of the student is assessed and an Analysis of Test Performance Reportis prepared by teachers and is discussed with the student. This is an objective critical analysis from an expert teacher to comment on issues which may not be in public domain. This helps in giving a realistic idea about the level of hard-work needed and time lines to be maintained during preparation.

The GRE is an aptitude test, and you would already be good or weak at a lot of knowledge concepts, question solving procedures, test taking techniques and test dynamics along with a certain sharpness of brain being tested on this exam. So the first step is to get a realistic idea of your present status by subjecting you to a Benchmarking Test. This Benchmarking Test is exactly on the lines of the real GRE and has the same standard of questions. Attempting the Benchmarking Test helps in giving the right direction to your preparation.

  1. Learning Stage – All students do not have the same foundation of the topic to be taught in class. This foundation depends on what was taught to them during schooling. So to bring all students at par, even before the class, students have to do a bit of revision of concepts that form the foundation of concepts relevant for exam and were taught to them in school years. Students casually read through the Pre-Class Priming Docs to get familiar with the topic to be taught in class. This helps you to easily understand the topics taught in class.

During the Class : Teacher teaches all concepts, right from the basics. Student has to understand and take extensive class to remember concepts better. Teacher attempts representative questions to exhibit how the concepts can be applied to solve questions. Student also attempt a class exercise to find whether he can attempt all possible types of questions on the topic. This class exercise is discussed by the teacher. This helps in thoroughly understanding all concepts and question solving procedures.

Each class is followed by students attempting homework which comprises of

  • Workbook Assignments, It would have concepts in three formats
    • Written concepts to be mugged up.
    • Fill-in-the-blanks to identify if you did not understand a concept taught in class.
    • Multiple-Choice Questions to identify if you did not understand a concept taught in class.
  • Objective Concept Application Exercises
    • These have original questions from the GRE to check whether you can actually apply the concepts learnt in class on all question types appearing on the GRE.
  • Question Bank Homework
    • This bank of about 1500 questions on each subject polishes your ability to attempt questions.
  1. Concept Clarity & Application Stage – In the next class you submit the workbook and the Concept Application Exercise, so that it can be manually checked by your teacher. If you make a certain mistake or if you do not attempt a certain question, this indicates you need clarity on that concept and your teacher discusses these questions with you. This step will ensure that you master each and every concept and strategies needed to excel in the GRE.
  2. Concept Application Stage – As the teacher moves to the next topic you need to apply your knowledge on two sets of questionnaires. These questionnaires have actual questions from the official guides and papers released by ETS over the last twenty years. Questions on which you mark a wrong answer, questions that you cannot attempt, or questions on which you have a confusion and need more clarity or a faster way to attempt can be cleared in a 1-on-1 doubt session with your teacher.
  3. Simulated Exam Stage – During the last stage you attempt Simulated / Mock Exams to understand, learn and excel in test dynamics.

Even when a student has mastered all concepts and knows how to attempt every question that can possibly appear on the exam, he may still not be able to get a 100% score on the actual exam because of issues such as test anxiety, lower attention span or stamina to apply brains for a four hour long exam. Taking a series of Mock Exams ensures that a student can identify the problems which are stopping him from achieving a perfect score. Each of these Mock Exams are to be followed by analyzing the exam performance and keeping the teacher in the loop during this stage.
