Click on the relevant link below to find out what makes Dr. Donnelly Manhattan's leading private GRE tutor and test prep specialist.

Free initial consultation and assessment

If you are new to GRE tutoring or test prep - don't worry. During your free initial consultation, Dr. Donnelly will administer a short assessment to determine if there are any gaps in your knowledge of the basic mathematical, grammatical, and analytical concepts that appear on the GRE. The assessment usually takes about 30 minutes and is very interactive (unlike traditional assessments). You will get to see Dr. Donnelly's tutoring skills in action and by the end of the initial consultation, you should feel confident that Dr. Donnelly is the right GRE tutor for you.

Based on the initial assessment, Dr. Donnelly will be able to advise you on the correct number of hours of tutoring that you will probably need in order to reach your target GRE score. If you decide that Dr. Donnelly is the right tutor for you, he will then work with you to help you to plan your entire GRE prep time-table and set up a regular tutoring schedule.

Customized lessons that focus on your GRE tutoring needs

Dr. Donnelly's tutoring focuses on quality over quantity. After the initial assessment, each lesson becomes increasingly individualized as Dr. Donnelly adapts the curriculum to your particular test-prep needs. Any weaknesses are quickly addressed to ensure that your conceptual and methodological foundations are solid.

Of course, we also look at strategies for dealing with various situations you may encounter on the exam, but experience has shown that these strategies prove much more effective after students have fine-tuned their understanding of the exam’s content. If, on the other hand, you've already done some test prep and feel comfortable with your background knowledge, then Dr. Donnelly will focus more on the concepts and question-types that are troubling you most.

Either way, Dr. Donnelly's patient step-by-step teaching style will help to build your confidence in each topic and greatly improve your test-taking skills. Many of his previous students have been admitted to some of the world's leading graduate schools including Oxford, Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Cambridge, etc. Read student testimonials and reviews.

Unique problem-solving techniques for the GRE

As a dedicated full-time private tutor and test prep specialist, with over 18 years of teaching experience, Dr. Donnelly has developed many unique problem-solving techniques that help his students to master even the most difficult of questions that appear on the GRE. These proprietary methods (unavailable elsewhere) show students the most efficient approach for dealing with each type of question that can appear on the exam.

His students are often amazed at how quickly their GRE scores start to improve significantly (often after just a few hours of tutoring). Many of Dr. Donnelly's new students tell him that they actually learned more during their first lesson with him than they did previously during entire courses with other tutors or test prep centers.

Free access to practice GRE questions and exams

"Practice makes perfect", as the old saying goes - so at the end of each lesson, Dr. Donnelly will provide you with plenty of GRE questions of varying difficulty to practice at home. These homework assignments will help you to reinforce and retain the techniques and topics that we have covered together during our lessons. They also provide a valuable feedback mechanism that will help to measure your weekly progress.

All students also receive free proprietary teaching materials including equation summary sheets, test-taking tips, and access to officially-published GRE questions and practice exams.
