GRE Private Tutoring in Sydney (Australia)
Manhattan Review's private tutoring and prep classes for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) meet all of the test prep needs of Sydney applicants to graduate school. Our customized GRE tutoring derives its effectiveness from highly personalized student assessment and instruction. Manhattan Review's Sydney GRE tutors begin by evaluating all relevant factors, including academic background, GRE strengths and weaknesses, and graduate school goals, and then implement learning plans according to our students' preferred learning styles and personal characteristics. The reliability of our GRE prep services has been consistently demonstrated by upper-percentile GRE scores and acceptance to Princeton, Yale, Brown, Dartmouth, Oxford, the University of Sydney, and many other top schools. We're also proud to report that many of our past students have gone on to professional success in every field relevant to the GRE. A large number of respected professionals at Fortune 500 companies such as Citigroup, Home Depot, and Dow Chemical, and at Sydney firms such as Campus Living Villages, Lowes Menswear, and Nine Entertainment got started with Manhattan Review's private GRE tutoring and prep classes!
Manhattan Review's private GRE tutoring emphasizes efficiency of learning, which saves our students time and money. One way that we streamline the teaching process is by evaluating available GRE data at our students' chosen graduate schools. This allows us to calculate a target GRE score and devote all of our efforts toward reaching that level. Master's degree students at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education averaged 156 for both verbal and quantitative and 4.1 analytical writing, which is in the 71st, 64th, and 60th percentile respectively of all of the GRE's 655,000 annual test-takers. We arrive at our target scores by exceeding the median enough for the applicant to stand out. In this case, our desired scores would be 160 verbal and quantitative and 4.5 analytical writing, all of which are comfortably above the average for this program and far beyond the mean verbal (151) and quantitative (149) scores for all applicants to graduate education programs.
Universities commonly use the term "holistic" when describing their admissions practices, by which they mean evaluation of all application components. There are undoubtedly varying degrees of truth to this notion, but prospective graduate students should not interpret this situation as a license to neglect the GRE. Students accepted to the best programs usually have the best GRE scores in their disciplines, regardless of the contrary implications sometimes advanced by admissions officials (who are at least partially motivated by widespread criticism of standardized testing). Duke University is an example of a school that has no university-wide minimum GRE score, but the average GRE scores of admitted PhD students in all departments are 159 verbal (the 81st percentile) and 162 quantitative (the 83rd percentile). For Duke master's degree students in biomedical engineering, the mean is even higher, at 161 verbal and 164 quantitative. Prospective graduate students are therefore strongly encouraged to approach GRE preparation with an appropriate degree of rigor. Manhattan Review's GRE private tutoring and prep classes show our students how to excel on this crucial admissions requirement.
