Ask me anything about the GRE that can't be answered with a simple google search, and I'll be happy to reply!

How many times did you have to give the GRE to get that score in Quant?

Hi chgre, I had to take the revised GRE 3 times to achieve my top score of 168 on Quant. (I also took the old GRE twice.)

How much do you charge for reading comprehension ? I have read the official guide and other explanations and I do the know the points they emphasise on, but I am unable to apply them.

Well, I charge...quite a lot, at least for a GRE tutor. I'm here on GRE Prep Club not to find new private tutoring students--although I do occasionally--but to share free information with students who might not be able to afford the services of someone like me.

-Brian

p.s. If you're still interested, then here are my detailed rates.

Hi Brian,
I found you on Reddit and then stumbled upon you here. I was wondering what you think an achievable score is for a person who studies "unconventionally". As of now, I don't have any books, but instead do a lot of practice problems on this forum and learn from them. For lessons, I watch videos, but spend more time practicing them than watching, as most people point out. My worry is that because there is such an abundance of material online, that I might not sharpen ALL the skills I need for the GRE.

Should I take a Practice Test and get a baseline feel for how my studying has taken me and then possibly readjust or is it possible to get away with my current way?

Hi,
I have taken GRE twice now, and my latest score (November 2018) is 159-V and 164-Q. However, I will need to cross the 330-score mark to get admitted to my preferred schools. Thus, I would like to know if could recommend an affordable private tutor as I have not been doing any prep since my last attempt due to my job.
As of now, I am considering Varsity Tutors for private lesson.

Hi everyone, sorry for the radio silence. I took a several-month break from GRE Prep Club to focus on building my own GRE prep subreddit, but I'm back as an active member of GRE Prep Club and am ready to answer your questions again.

Hello everybody, I am new to this forum. Sorry for posting here, but I was searching for a thread about tutoring / part-time jobs and found only this one. How can I become a tutor? Do you have any tips? My mom told me that I need to have a diploma from my college and then after that, I can start my career. I have it already but I don't know what to do next. Should I read some articles about that, like https://yourmoneygeek.com, are they helpful?
