The so-called "Grand Reduction of Ego" (GRE) is a real intimidator. I managed above 700 scores on both the language and math portions, without undue stress. I also earned a 90+ score in the Miller Analogy exam. My test preparation philosophy includes both practice with the material and emotional preparation for the event. I have been a successful grad student at Portland State University, the University of Portland, and the University of Washington and know what is required to handle challenging material. [more]

Hi future students and parents!!! My name is Aki, and I was a Physics/Calculus teacher at a small private school located in San Diego. Now, I've relocated to Portland and am a full time tutor, dedicating all my attention to the success of each and every student I have. I've started tutoring in 2012 at a prestigious tutoring facility. There I had the opportunity to teach a group of high school students SAT and ACT while creating materials for the AP tests. This experience made me realize how... [more]

I work along side a tutor who has scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT. I have previously taught community college courses on anatomy, psychology and sociology. I also have extensive training the most current memorization and learning techniques. My role in MCAT training is to ensure that students are converting what they hear in their lessons into a permanent knowledge base and skill set I've taught anatomy and physiology at the college level. Currently, tutoring for the MCAT is my f... [more]

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

I'm guessing that the part of the GRE that is most difficult, maybe even frightening, for you is the math part. I will help you understand the reasoning behind the math rules. When you understand the reason for the rules, the rules become easier to use. Why is 6 to the zero power 1 and not zero? Because it's a rule? Or because it makes mathematical sense? Why can't I divide by zero? Because it's a rule? Or because it makes mathematical sense? When you know the mathematical sense of these, you will be more comfortable with the rules. [more]

I performed above 90th percentile on the GRE Math and Verbal tests 12 years ago (exact scores by request), and I went on to earn a Master's in cognitive science at the University of California. Since then I have been tutoring the SAT and GRE and have been proud to see my students achieve their goals. I take a practical, no-gimmicks approach. I advocate taking several practice tests and studying mainly in the subject areas most likely to see results. Hi, I am a longtime university teacher and expert in math and the social sciences. I earned Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Cognitive Science a [more]

I actually teach Psychology, but I also do quite a bit of math tutoring because I really love math, and love helping people with it! I've been tutoring various kinds of math an average of 5 - 10 hours a week for about 10 years now. I love tutoring math because I get to spend time talking about something I'm enthusiastic about anyway. But even more important is helping people to understand math, and get over their anxiety and develop confidence in their math ability. I understand math an... [more]

I moved to Portland this September, from Europe (but I am a native U.S. citizen.). For the past 11 years, I lived and worked out of Milan, Italy. My primary client work was as a GMAT prep coach, and MBA application essay consultant. I also coached people preparing for the SATs (both individually and in an IB school class of 30+ high school students in Milan), the GRE, the ACT, the LSAT. I worked primarily in Milan, but also traveled to work with clients in Lausanne, Zurich and Geneva, Switze... [more]
