GRE Verbal Precision

$129 - $230

New! Use the coupon code ROCKTOBER at checkout to get 33% off this course! Expires 10/31/21.


Hone your verbal skills.

I've twice gotten a perfect 170 on the GRE's verbal section, and GRE Verbal Precision is my online verbal video course designed to quickly raise your verbal and essay scores, whether you're an international student or a native English speaker.

I call it "verbal precision" since it teaches you to be able to precisely tell whether answers are right or wrong. Unless you're already scoring near 170 for verbal, this course will improve your accuracy and confidence. Also covers the essay section of the test.


  • Live weekly office hours! This is your chance to get one-on-one help from me for anything - discussing questions is often the missing link to fully understanding them.
  • my GRE Vocabulary Cartoons course
  • the official ETS Verbal Reasoning book
  • access to GRE Prep Squad - our private Discord group.

Course members also get a 20% discount on private tutoring with Vince in case you need more help.

Client testimonial: "Vince knows what he is doing. His experience shows. He has been responsive, respectful, and encouraging throughout my time working with him, and the online course was a convenient way to learn. My GRE verbal score went up 5 points to a 166 out of 170, making my dream schools seem attainable. I would highly recommend Vince to anyone who is willing to put in the work to improve."

Includes my GRE Verbal Precision video course (described above) and everything that comes with it!

Client Testimonial: "I highly recommend Vince for GRE prep! I signed up for his customized study plan after trying to get started on GRE studying on my own for a few weeks. Vince was super helpful. He helped me develop a study plan that worked with my schedule and provided a ton of material (including his GRE Verbal course). He was attentive and provided useful feedback and tips throughout my studies. After 2-3 months of studying with Vince, I took the GRE and was thrilled to see that my score went up significantly."
