Success Stories
After I was disappointed with my GRE score, I knew I had limited options if I wanted to improve before graduate application deadlines. An expensive course was out of the question, both due to my complicated work schedule and the steep financial burden that accompanies the GRE and application fees. Tutor for the People gave me the opportunity to get one on one tutoring with a custom plan that allowed me to improve my score across the board in the small window of time I had available before I retook the GRE test. My tutor was thorough and flexible, and the personalized assistance allowed me to focus exactly on my weaknesses. There is no way I could have improved my score so much on my own. Thank you!
Giulia G. GRE
After being out of school for three years, I was not excited to take the GRE. But I wanted to go to graduate school, and since most of the schools I was applying to required it, I knew I had to commit to getting a decent score. The 90-minute weekly sessions I had with my tutor made all the difference. He helped me understand that the most important part of my preparation was not to relearn all of the things I had forgotten since college, but to become a strategic test-taker. He taught me many effective strategies and tricks, which boosted my confidence and enabled me to get above average scores. He was also able to cater to my personal needs as a student. Because I was applying to graduate school for creative writing, my tutor suggested that we spent the bulk of our time focusing on the verbal section, since my prospective schools focused on that score. And that's something a GRE prep textbook or class can't offer. Most importantly, Tutor the People was the most affordable test prep service in the area, and I didn't have to purchase a single book! Thanks to my tutor, I am now on my way to graduate school next year.
Liz K. GRE
I am currently utilizing Tutor The People's services in preparation for the GRE and I have had absolutely no qualms. My experience with TTP has lived up to everything I have expected and more! The company's affable staff, flexible tutoring schedule and personalized tutoring have made my GRE studying experience easy and enjoyable. I am confident that because of my tutoring I will do very well on my exam.
