Experienced and knowledgeable
Phoebe is helping me improve my math score. Aside from reviewing basic math concepts with me, she is also knowledgeable in patterns most commonly used in GRE questions and is great at explaining these concepts so I can solve questions faster and with more ease. She takes the time to explain concepts I have difficulty with and is able to reframe her explanations if I have trouble understanding. She uses GRE standard materials, so you are practicing with questions that may even be on the exam. Great tutor.Araby, 14 lessons with Phoebe
My score improved
Phoebe tutored me in verbal as well as quantitative. My score improved 6 points in the verbal section and 5 points in the quant section. She gives practice material as homework and then goes over it in depth with you during the session which is extremely helpful to have access to as much material as possible. In regards to the math section specifically, she first teaches you the concepts through exercises and then shows you how to apply those concepts to real GRE questions. This is helpful because with the fundamentals being taught first you can apply what you know to just about any GRE problem instead of learning how to do specific problems and not being able to relate it to something slightly different next time.Jamie, 18 lessons with Phoebe
Encouraging tutor that provides good results!
I started my tutoring lessons with Phoebe in September 2021 to help me prepare for the GRE in February 2022. We met twice a week until January, when I took the first GRE and received a score of 152 (53rd percentile) on verbal reasoning, and 148 (28th percentile) on quantitative reasoning. After my January test, we met three times a week until my second test in February, where I scored 160 (85th percentile) on verbal reasoning and 155 (54th percentile) on quantitative reasoning. I really enjoyed Phoebe's organized way of teaching the material and the practice problems she provided for me. She was patient with me and I could tell she really wanted me to succeed! With Phoebe's help, I was able to improve my scores substantially through consistent meetings with her and the practice material she provided for me.Kelly, 57 lessons with Phoebe
Thorough and kind!
Phoebe was amazing during our first session. I am preparing to take the GRE for graduate school and she is definitely helping me feel ready for my attempt. I have always struggled with math and Phoebe has been able to break down concepts in a way that help me understand the material. Will absolutely book more sessions as I study for this test.Emily, 1 lesson with Phoebe

Great tutor! Def recommend!
Pheobe is an amazing tutor. She is fully prepared and knowledgeable about the subject. She tutored me for Biostats in preparation for a midterm. The review of key concepts was broken down step by step. She was very patient and followed me with clear explanations. I was surprised to see that she had printed materials like study sheets and problems for me to practice on. Above and beyond what I expected.Xugo, 2 lessons with Phoebe
