I have always found math intimidating, all the way through AP Calculus. So then, there it was, the math portion of the GRE, looming like a monolith between a PhD program and me. Luckily, the director of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Program at Columbia University was smart enough to hire Akil Bello of Bell Curves test prep. Akil demonstrated all of the best qualities of a tutor: extreme patience, humor and unparalleled knowledge concerning the test at hand. Within a few short weeks I not only gained a greater understanding of the mathematical concepts tested by the GRE, but I also learned how to become a more efficient test taker over all, increasing my confidence and making test day a breeze. When faced with the daunting task of compiling my graduate school applications, it was a source of calm amidst the storm knowing that at the very least, I had the GRE in the bag.
After taking a full GMAT course + private tutoring with Hany ElDiwany in the fall, I have nothing but great things to say about Hany's teaching/tutoring skills!!! He's very patient, quickly targets weak areas and follows up with various on the spot drills and questions to shore up those weaknesses. Hany is great at creating his own questions and strengthening & weakening retired OG quant questions to reach someone at the level they're at. Very unique skill set I must say. In addition, Hany was always available to answer questions via email 24/7 ( even while he was on vacation). Overall I can't ask for better service than that. Great experience all around!!
Before taking a Bell Curves GMAT preparation course, I took the GMAT and received a score of 430. To get into the school I was interested in, I needed to raise my score at least 70 points. After taking the Bell Curves GMAT prep course, I raised my GMAT score 100 points to a 530. Thanks to this course, I have been accepted into Georgia Southern's MBA program where I will be attending classes this fall. The instructor was available and helped focus on my areas of weakness. The online materials provided with the Bell Curves prep course were extremely effective, since they were very similar to the questions on the GMAT itself.
Hello, this is your student from last summer, Jennifer, from Columbia University's Mellon Mays program. I'm just writing to let you know that, after getting accepted to 5 English PhD programs for Latina/o literature and spending about a month torturing myself over a decision, I finally chose to go to the University of Michigan this fall on the Rackham Merit Fellowship. Taking that GRE prep course with Bell Curves was not only ridiculous amounts of fun, but also totally stress- and anxiety-reducing and I felt totally prepared walking into the exam. Seriously, thanks for all your help -- and I hope next year's Columbia Mellons have at least half as much fun as we did. :)
