Hello I am non native scoring in the low 30s in the verbal section on my practice exams...and 21 on both the real gmat attemps. I am in urgent need of verbal help and have tried the mgmat sc and egmat course. Nothing seems to work.

Can anyone recommend a good verbal tutor for non natives. I would like to have an intensive course. I want to take the gmat in a month and a half.

Before you decide on in-person tutoring, have you checked to see if this video approach makes any sense to you? http://www.gmatpill.com/sentencecorrect ... ythons.mp4

We do quite well with non-natives: http://www.gmatpill.com/testimonials

first 2 cents....I have taken numerous and that too from legends, yes the demi gods of gmatland ( no names, plz ).....they will just run u through a set of questions and then let u know what is right, what is wrong....furthermore, they wll ask u to have a set ready that has bugged u, and wll try to dissect those.....not worth....my take, though.

2 things that worked and that I vld amass after burning a hole in my pocket.

for sc....to parse is the key...PARSING....breaking down the answer choices acc to modifiers, parallelism, sv agreement....u dont solve...u just take up a topic say modifier and take 20 og qns....just see, if u can identify which are the modifiers, what all are they modifying....check off the ones which u think are not modifying correctly and move on....dont solve the qn....after going through all 20 check the answers and see whether u havent checked off the right answer....do this exercise for every topic like parralelism..sv etc ...this will strengthen ur fundamentals to the core and then will help u to identify the misplaced modifier or incorrect parallelism everytime....once u are ok...then go through next 50 qns and try to find if u can identify the errors when diff set of errors are mixed in a single prob.....this is the way to ho

u can chk, what I am saying, the video "new way to do sc"...from thursdays with ron

btw, u can get in touch with irene orleansky....a gifted teacher...she stays very busy and is usually packed....6 minths she promotes her musical band, travelling to diff countries....rest of the time at israel she teaches gmat verbal....very economical..teaches over skype...I didnt take tuitions from her as I didnt have any dollar left...but from many closed sources, I have heard gr8 things of her.

Have you identified the sub-sections or question types that trouble you the most? That might be a useful start.

I provide tutoring over Skype.

I just did a google search and landed on http://www.ireneorleansky.com/. From the credentials, it looks like she is the same person.

So, you might want to drop a mail to ireneorleansky@gmail.com

Hi oloman,

Which type of verbal questions are you struggling with? This will help you (and your tutor, if you've found one) hone in on areas to improve on.

To start and since you mentioned that you're a non-native English speaker, take a look at this blog which provides tips on approaching different questions in the verbal section as a non-native English speaker: http://econgm.at/vUfDKi. Thanks and I hope this helps.

Jessica

We work with nonnatives in your score range all the time. In fact, we love working with people with your score profile because you're eager to learn and easy to teach. We have worked out a system so efficient that we guarantee your score. The key is to start with Sentence Correction and get you used to the complex grammatical constructions specific to GMAT. We leverage your quantitative and logical skills to take the guesswork out of the Verbal section. It's all logical and methodical, you just need to know what to look for.
