How is the coaching best conducted?
Our coach usually meets with students for two hours once per week over Skype, the course of three months. During the six days in between sessions, students are invited to take timed practice sections on their own. Once they are graded and scored, our coach has them re-try the problems they missed and read the sample explanations the preparation book provides. Students are invited to take personal notes here.
Once they encounter something that they have missed twice, read an explanation, and attempted to take notes and they still cannot figure it out, then our coach has them rate their problems. With multiple problems each week "the hardest of the hard problems" from each section - math, writing/grammar/reading (or science, if applicable) - will be attacked first.
Each session is different and is geared toward helping the students with problems they were unable to learn on their own. Our coach will be acting a bit as a "police officer," assigning homework and making sure that the work is done do it, tracking their results, and keeping students encouraged. However, the main purpose of the session is to Find problems each unique student cannot figure out. Then, our coach shows them how to do those problems with proven best practice techniques or to develop some techniques of their own.
There are also GRE subject tests that we can help you prepare for. GRE subject tests can help set you apart from the big crowd of applicants. The better your GRE score, the higher the chances for additional scholarship money. Learn more in our blog post about GRE subject tests.
