GRE & GMAT
A-List provides private, in home tutoring for the GRE and GMAT exams.
Scores on graduate school exams are often critical for being accepted into the graduate program of your choice. Unlike undergraduate admissions that look at a myriad of factors to determine one’s acceptance into the school, graduate tests are a significant component to admissions. In addition, graduate school programs are far smaller than undergraduate programs and thus more competitive.
We offer customized preparation for the GRE and GMAT tests upon request, as well as assistance brainstorming and editing essays and completing applications.

About the Tests:
The GRE® General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that are not related to any specific field of study. The test consists of 3 sections – Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning and includes an unidentified unscored section. The Analytical Writing section is always first while the Verbal and Quantitative sections may appear in any order.
Prospective graduate applicants take the General Test. GRE® test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.
The Graduate Management Admissions test is used by business schools to evaluate applications for admissions to MBA Programs. It measures basic verbal, quantitative, and writing skills and consists of three main parts: the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Quantitative section, and the Verbal section for which you have approximately three and a half hours.
The GMAT exam begins with the Analytical Writing Assessment which consists of two separate writing tasks – Analysis of an Issue and Analysis of an Argument. The second section is the Quantitative Section which contains 37 multiple-choice questions of two question types – Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving. The last part is the Verbal Section which contains 41 multiple choice questions of three question types – Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, and Sentence Correction.
William P. +5 ACT, Harvard University Class of 2020
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test. That confidence was the greatest thing that A-List gave me, and I can’t recommend them enough.

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with A-List! A-List was so supportive and helpful through every aspect of the stressful college admissions process. I got into my dream school, and A-List played an integral part of the achievement! In addition to tutoring, I also received guidance writing both the personal and supplemental essays. My tutor and college advisor were always so encouraging and positive! Also, being able to take ample practice tests in a classroom setting much like that of the actual SAT/ACT helped me gain much more test-taking confidence and made me feel very comfortable when it came time to take the real thing. Thank you so much for everything!

Our tutor was a remarkable educator and person. Beyond his vast knowledge of the college testing and application process, he had an ease and enthusiasm that enables him to quickly connect with and inspire his students to achieve their maximum potential. Ever wise, witty and measured in his approach, our A-List tutor masterfully guided us through every aspect of the college prep/application process and was instrumental in helping Adam get into his dream college. A-List more than delivered, it exceeded expectation!
