College Insights College Insights

College Insights has been preparing students for the SAT, PSAT, SAT II: Subject Tests, ACT, GRE, and LSAT since 1991.

GRE Classes

College Insights has classes beginning each month throughout the school year and a summer program for students who would like to prepare for the GRE when they have the most free time. The College Insights GRE preparation course consists of 10 three-hour classes and a full complement of at least 4 diagnostic tests. Class time is divided equally between the math and verbal sections of the GRE. Additional time is spent addressing the analytical writing assessment and strategies for Computer Adaptive Tests (CAT). Each section is limited to 8 students who are grouped according to scoring level to facilitate interaction between students and teachers. The fee for our GRE course is $895. This includes all materials, extra tutoring and make up sessions. See Schedules.

Private Tutoring

College Insights private tutorials are taught by the same dynamic instructors who teach our group sessions. Your tutor will tailor the course work to your individual needs. Private tutorials consist of either 15 or 20 hours of preparation and a full complement of at least four practice tests. Our teachers will come to your house, or meet with you at one of our course locations. The fee for a 15-hour private tutorial is $1295. The fee for a 20-hour tutorial is $1695. We can also design programs for six or more students who would like to work together for our standard course fee.

Course Content

The GRE tests a limited range of mathematical skills in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. We provide a thorough review in each of these areas as they are tested on the GRE, and teach extensive strategies and techniques for answering question types most common to it. The GRE verbal section includes four different question types which focus on vocabulary and reading comprehension skills: antonyms, analogies, critical reading, and sentence completion. We teach students how to answer antonyms, analogies, and sentence completion questions quickly and correctly when the vocabulary is familiar, and how to guess effectively when much of the vocabulary is unknown. We teach methods for improving reading speed and techniques for locating pertinent information in reading passages. We also provide vocabulary enhancement with words which have the highest tendency to show up on the GRE.

Make-ups and Extra Help

Many of the students enrolled in our classes are also heavily involved with school work and extra curricular activities. To accommodate busy schedules, College Insights provides make-up classes and tests to students unable to attend all of the regularly scheduled sessions, at their convenience, and extra help for students who would like a fuller understanding of any of our strategies or techniques, free of charge.

Instructors

We realize that there is more to being an effective GRE coach than having high test scores. All College Insights instructors are thoroughly trained in our methods and techniques and have experience teaching students at all scoring levels. They are recent graduates of top colleges and universities who scored in the top percentile on the GRE and have the ability to make the course fun and interesting. Our students consistently rate their teachers as the best part of the class. The bottom line in test prep is the quality of the teachers, and College Insights has the best.

Materials

College Insights students prepare for the GRE using the most recently released tests and practice questions. Other companies use questions which they have written themselves to "simulate" the GRE experience. That just doesn't work, and may build false confidence. Our adherence to using actual GRE questions for our practice tests and workbooks is one reason why our average score improvements are the best in the business. After each of the four practice tests administered throughout the course, students receive detailed diagnostic reports which provide computer generated, in-depth analysis. These reports show progress and help us to pinpoint specific strengths and weaknesses in order to provide the best course possible for our students. Other programs prepare students for their own versions of the GRE. College Insights prepares students for the real thing.

Our Guarantee

College Insights is proud to have the best guarantee in the test preparation business. Some other prep companies claim to guarantee score improvement. In reality, they don't. If students taking other courses are disappointed with their scores, the best they can hope for is to do additional work for free. We don't consider that to be a guarantee. College Insights will work again at no additional cost with any student who attends all classes and fails to raise GRE scores by 100 or more points, and refund the entire course fee to any student who still fails to improve by 100 or more points after this additional work. That's what we consider a guarantee. No other test prep company makes this guarantee. Not Princeton Review. Not Kaplan Test Prep. College Insights does, because our program works.
