GRE Personal Coaching Program

Course Description:

The GRE Personal Coaching is provided by Jay Cutts, the lead author of the Barron’s LSAT and MCAT prep books. The program prepares students for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). The course covers timing strategy and problem-solving strategies for the Quantitative and Verbal sections of the test.

The program consists of up to fifteen hours of personal coaching help for a period of six months from the start of the course. Up to one hour can be used for admissions issues other than the GRE.

Mr. Cutts works with you directly by phone and video conferencing. He gives you specific assignments, reviews your progress, and teaches you advanced strategies. He creates a study plan for you and advises you on all of the aspects of admissions. Students typically work with him once or twice each week. Sessions can be as long or short as needed.

For the Quantitative section, you will learn how to interpret the instructions for the quantitative comparison questions, to analyze data interpretation graphs, and to recognize the patterns of GRE math questions. You will learn intuitive math problem-solving tools that are accessible even to people who are not strong in math. You will learn how to make decisions about using your time on the Quantitative section, including how to choose which questions to work on and how much time to spend on a question.

For the Verbal section, you will learn how to skim Reading Comprehension passages for structure and tools for distinguishing between two very close answer choices. You will learn the fundamental agenda of the Sentence Completion questions and tools for proving which answer is correct. You will learn how to make decisions about using your time on the Verbal section, including how to choose which questions to work on and how much time to spend on a question.

You will learn the underlying agendas for the Analytical Writing tasks and specific steps for creating an essay that will earn a passing score.

You will learn specific strategies for overcoming test anxiety, poor standardized test taking, and math anxiety. You will learn how to maximize your use of time on the test, how to avoid the most common timing pitfalls, and how to gain significant extra points through timing strategy.
