The University of Washington Women’s Center offers a GRE Preparation Course and also Basic Math Refresher Course regularly throughout the year. Our classes are small, reasonably priced, and very helpful in lessening the anxiety that many students feel as they approach the GRE test. We have received very positive feedback from the students who have taken this course.

The GRE Prep & Basic Math Refresher Course are each four sessions, each session lasting 3 hours and offers the following benefits to the participants:

  • Increased confidence in their ability to succeed on the GRE Test
  • Thorough preparation for the content of the GRE
  • Strategies for the test day & practice using them beforehand
  • Practice tests
  • A small classroom setting with personal attention given to each student
  • An experienced instructor, Renee Agatsuma has a proven track record of success of over 8 years of elementary, middle, high school and college-level mathematics instruction.

GRE PREP – Jan 15, 22, 29 and Feb 5, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Instructor: Elisabeth Heftel

The purpose of this course is to offer graduate school applicants the opportunity to refresh content knowledge, build strategy skills, and gain confidence in preparation for the GRE. As a class, we will get to know the structure and content of the exam and review the necessary verbal, mathematical, and analytical skills. This course will include a large volume of practice problems, specific outlined study approaches to each section, and the development of effective timing and answering strategies. Some out-of-class work will be expected of students who are committed to success.

Thursdays, January 20 and 27, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Instructor: Elisabeth Heftel

The Math Refresher course is a 2-week review of Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and basic Trigonometry. This is the perfect opportunity for students preparing for the GRE or GMAT to start at the basics of mathematics and work up to the highest levels of math that will be seen on the exams. This course is entirely content-based, a perfect complement to the more strategy-based GRE course. Our classes will incorporate significant visual examples to make the mathematical concepts as clear as possible. Asking questions is encouraged!
