Since there are so few professional GRE tutors, online GRE tutoring is often the preferred approach for students who want world-class instruction but who live outside of New York. The online tutoring platform is structured so that the experience of in-person one-on-one tutoring is replicated to the extent possible. Lessons take place through Skype, which provides a function that allows users to share their screen. Thus, when the tutor or student wants to review a question, both parties will be able to see it. To simulate the experience of reviewing a question, we make use of SyncPad (https://syncpadapp.com), an online whiteboard that allows students to watch, in real-time, as the tutor works through a problem.
