What is the GMAT?

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) was designed by business schools to assess the skills determined to be most relevant to success in a graduate management program. However, many graduate schools now accept the GRE (General Record Examination), so it is important to research the schools you are applying to and which test they require. The test is designed to assess analytical writing, integrated reasoning, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills.

What is the GRE?

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test frequently used for graduate school applications in the U.S. The GRE is used by most graduate programs, including law programs and, now, many business programs. The test is designed to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing skills.

Our Methodology

GMAT / GRE tutoring programs can vary in length depending on a number of factors: students’ starting scores, academic backgrounds, goal scores, target schools, and bandwidth to engage with practice work between sessions. As such, all of our GMAT / GRE programs begin with a 90-minute tutoring and planning meeting with William. From there, we’ll make recommendations about the overall number of tutoring hours required for success. Most GMAT / GRE programs range in length from 10 – 25 hours.

William Brubaker: Our World-Class GMAT / GRE Tutor

William uses proprietary database software and practice questions from official guides and major schools to teach the strategies students need to learn in order to do well on their exams. To identify their weak areas and focus on them more deeply, he employs data analysis to track his students’ performance on the application of the strategies and principles required to do well on the exam.

After the first lesson, William evaluates the student’s proficiencies in the main categories and from then on uses materials that are likely to advance those proficiencies. He assigns homework after each lesson, consisting of a review of the previous meeting, GMAT idiom or GRE vocabulary flashcards, and a report of the strategies has missed multiple times.

William has received numerous positive reviews from past students, who have described him as a “phenomenal,” “patient,” “brilliant”, “awesome”, “effective”, “organized”, “thorough”, “amazing” and “knowledgeable” tutor. His tutoring method has helped many students raise their scores and achieve their desired results.
