GRE Tutoring in Oakland (California)

Oakland students understand the need for making their application stand out among the rest. In close proximity to both Berkeley and Stanford, Oakland students are used to excellence and know that it takes more than a great GPA to enter the top graduate programs in the country and abroad. In order to stand out, applicants must score in the top percentile Graduate Record Examination (GRE). While many choose to prepare on their own, there is a significant advantage to having a mentor work with you through the whole process and help you to see any weaknesses or issues you are having with the material from a third-party expert's perspective. Manhattan Review has been offering test preparation services since 1999. We are proud to offer Oakland area students a variety of local offerings, including on-site and online GRE group courses, on-site and online private GRE tutoring, GRE practice tests, admission consulting, and application advising. We have had the opportunity to share our expertise with students around the world for more than 20 years, and are looking forward to combining your determination and skill with our expertise and carefully crafted preparation material. We believe in the importance of finding the most highly-qualified tutors to help guide our clients through exam process. Their academic rigor helps students to strengthen their own skills and builds confidence before exam day. Contact us today to find out more about Manhattan Review's Oakland GRE prep courses and private GRE tutoring. We're looking forward to discuss GRE prep options and answer your questions by email, by phone, or online.

By the time students are considering graduate-level courses of study, they often have a career path in mind. For many careers, an upper-level degree is imperative, and having that degree from an elite program can give applicants a leg up. For many students, being a member of an elite program opens doors to the most competitive internships or apprenticeships. For others, the name recognition of a top program piques the interest of recruiters. The average GRE Quantitative score is 154 and the average GRE Verbal score is 150, however, it is important to research the program and university you are interested in. For example, the average score of students who attend Stanford to earn their Masters in Engineering earn, on average, a score of 167 GRE Quantitative and 160 GRE Verbal. We firmly believe that our clients who choose to work with one of our mentors to invest in the time and energy needed to earn a top-percentile score on the GRE will see the fruit of their labor returned as they advance in their education and, eventually, their careers.

At Manhattan Review, we are proud of our GRE clients who have been accepted to a long list of prestigious postsecondary institutions, including Stanford, University of California at Berkeley, Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, Dartmouth, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Chicago, the University of Toronto, University of California at Los Angeles, the University of Michigan, Cal Tech, and the University of Pennsylvania. Our former students graduate from these top programs with the skills necessary to compete in the modern economy. Some of our past clients have been hired by Fortune 500 firms, including Clorox, Facebook, Disney, Apple, Wells Fargo, Visa, Charles Schwab, Netflix, and more.

I wanted to thank you for teaching my class and being such a dedicated instructor. When I first started studying for the GRE I was doing it from complete scratch as I had not done this type of math in many years. I was scoring in the low 300's, and was having trouble with some of the quick math necessary to do well on the test. Our class helped me figure out how to break down problems into commonly found concepts and to quickly do the computation to answer them (by, for example, factoring). I took the GRE this past Friday and scored a 720 in math -- much higher than I had originally hoped for when I started studying. I know your going the extra mile to help, both in tutoring and in class, really made a difference to my score. Thanks again!
