The GRE is an important part of the graduate school application process, and this test is used in admissions decisions for graduate, business, and law school programs around the world. The GRE General Test is designed to closely reflect the sort of thinking employees and executives are required to perform in today's fast-paced business environments. The exam assesses verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing abilities, intentionally focusing on skills that have been developed and strengthened over a long period of time and can be applied to vastly different jobs and positions. GRE scores range between 130 to 170 in the verbal and quantitative sections of the exam, and the writing portion is scored on a scale ranging from 0 to 6 using half-point increments. In order to be competitive for the highest-ranking graduate programs, it is imperative to do well on the GRE. An average total GRE score is around 300, but for those seeking admission to the world's best graduate, business, or law programs, scores will need to be far above average. A score of 318 at the 75th percentile is considered "good," whereas a score of 329 at the 90th percentile is considered "excellent." At Manhattan Review, we can help you obtain those excellent scores and take the next step in your academic and/or professional life.

Meet a Cambridge GRE Tutor: Maureen V.
Maureen V. grew up in a small town in Connecticut and from an early age, she found herself fascinated by chemicals and reactions between various compounds. "I was always the kid making newspaper-and-wire volcanos and filling them with stuff that ended up on the kitchen ceiling when my creation ultimately exploded," she recalls with a laugh. Maureen graduated from Tufts University with an undergraduate degree in chemistry. When she found herself struggling to decide between a career in teaching or research, she decided to expand her education by applying to graduate programs. "You really need an advanced degree to do much in the field of chemistry," she explains, "and I didn't mind extending my academic journey because I've always loved learning."
While Maureen loved learning, she had never been a fan of standardized testing and once she realized she would need to take the GRE, she immediately began looking for ways to strengthen her preparation. "Getting into the most competitive graduate programs required a score I knew I couldn't get on my own," she shares, "so I enrolled in a classroom-style group prep course, which was my introduction to Manhattan Review." Maureen supplemented her group course with a few private tutoring sessions, "just to make sure I was really leveraging the strengths I already possessed and effectively using test-taking strategies." Maureen did so well on the GRE that she was accepted by all her top choice graduate programs before ultimately deciding to attend CalTech. "I remember thinking there would never be a better time to try life on the West Coast, so I went for it," she smiles. During her time there, she had the opportunity to work as a tutor to underprivileged youth through the school's community outreach program. Thinking back to her own time working with a tutor, Maureen realized she enjoyed being on the other side of the tutoring table, and she made a promise to herself to find ways to continue helping others achieve their own academic dreams.
After graduating from CalTech, Maureen accepted a position with a biotech company in Cambridge, working to create new products with a small environmental footprint while also improving current products through reducing the usage of plastics and other potentially harmful components. The job offered Maureen significantly flexibility outside of her own research, and she soon reached out to the Manhattan Review office in Cambridge, inquiring about ways to get involved with local students preparing for their own graduate school adventures. Maureen began working with Manhattan Review in 2017, and those who take her prep courses are amazed at her ability to make even the most dull or difficult GRE concept easy to understand and remember. "I know not everyone enjoys math the way I do," laughs Maureen, "so it's really important that my students know it's not about what you like or what you're naturally good at…there's a method to conquering the GRE, and I'm more than happy to help you learn it." When she isn't helping her fortunate students ace the GRE, Maureen can be found visiting traveling exhibits at local art galleries, learning to use a kiln at her friend's pottery and ceramics studio, and running early in the morning with her rescue dog, Wilma.
