The process begins with a snapshot of where the student is at the beginning of their study, through diagnostic GMAT test evaluation which demonstrates a student’s strengths and weaknesses. Whether tutoring a current college student, graduate or professional, we unpack each student’s needs and offer a rigorous action plan that reflects what the test requires. Students master the essentials of math, reading, logic, and grammar, and employ test-taking strategies for specific questions, as well as for the test as a whole. The Analytical Writing and Integrated Reasoning sections are approached independently, providing insights, and processes to ensure each student scores their best. Throughout the study program, students engage in timed diagnostic tests, evaluations, homework assignments, and meetings; each of these is focused on the study, learning, integration, application, and refinement of the knowledge gained and methods learned.
Each student is individual and requires a different plan. Yours will depend on your schedule and availability. Some students come to us the week prior to the exam for boot-camp help, other students contact us 6 months ahead of time, wanting a slow but steady course. We can assist these students as well as those in between. In an ideal world, we recommend students devote at least 2-3 months of study to prepare for the GMAT. For comprehensive mastery of material, on average, students devote 160 hours to the process, dominated by self-study.
Since tests are not only about what you know, but about how well you take tests, we ensure that, in addition to teaching content and critical thinking skills necessary for GMAT success, we include valuable techniques for focus and confidence-building. Students benefit from these skills on the test and in life.
