Best GMAT Preparation in Lahore
A nervous young man of about 29 years in age walked into the front doors of a scientific institute that provided software training to computer buffs with only an IELTS program on their English rostrum. Looking for extra work and passionate about the teaching profession, I offered my services as a part-time English Language associate. The academic coordinator who was impressed with my near-native American speaking accent and assuming that I had a strong grip over English as a subject made an impulse decision to try me out for their early morning spoken English batch as a trial. Well, what can I tell you but within a few days I had a class full of 35 students and word started to spread among the neighboring community about a foreign-qualified American sounding tutor whose class was really enjoyable and much educational.
Ultimately, the institute had to create a separate afternoon batch to facilitate the droves lining up to take my class, and the academic coordinator started to diversify my scope assigning me the GRE, GMAT, IELTS, SAT, and TOEFL courses as well. To be honest, that was my first time teaching the GMAT course and initially, I had three students enrolled in my class. Turns out that Sentence Correction or Grammar to the layman, is an essential component of the GMAT test along with Critical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension. As a grade school student in a British school all the way up till middle and then high school in the Persian Gulf, all the major modalities and concepts of English grammar were engrained in our brains like discipline is to military recruits – and that made my grammar rock solid.
For non-western students who are speakers of other languages, and receive a bulk of their education in a mixed medium of instruction alternating between English and their first language, grammar happens to be a really challenging area of struggle. All it took was for those three students to score, 550, 580, and 620 respectively and before you knew it my GMAT Preparation in Lahore class quadrupled in size.

THE GMAT METHOD
GMAT Preparation in Lahore: Now, almost twelve years later all it takes for me to evaluate a student’s grammatical ability is to have a five minutes’ verbal conversation with them, and make them write a two to three paragraph response to any given GMAT essay topic and I deduce exactly what I’m dealing with in terms of effort required to improve their grammatical concepts.
Although the Analytical writing part is a non-critical section of the test as it is independent of the three afore-mentioned sections and is not counted as part of the final GMAT test score, and is graded separately on a maximum range of six, I always encourage students to take it as seriously as the rest of the test. Some essay topics may be simple enough whereas some topics may require a student to really put some thought into the topic before attempting its response.
I always tell my students that the topic has to be comprehended from a 360 degrees’ perspective and they have to pretend to assume that they are the expert on the subject matter of that particular topic. Until 2012, students had to write two essay – an issue essay and an argument essay, but then the format was revised and now only one essay response is required which is the issue essay. The argument essay has been replaced with a new experimental section called the Integrated Reasoning which is scored on a maximum scale of eight and is also not conjoined as part of the final GMAT test score.
THE SKILLS REQUIRED FOR A GOOD GMAT SCORE
My strategy to help students like yourself to improve your sentence correction or grammatical ability is two-prong. I like to allow kids to get familiar with the different types of grammar questions that are oft repeated with different wording, over and over. In the process, what ultimately ends up happening is that most students start to understand that the range of questions revolve around the same listed grammatical modalities as mentioned in the Official GMAT preparation in Lahore Guide, such as Subject-Verb agreement, Pronouns, Preposition, Modifier, Dangling Modifier, Punctuation, rules of standard written English, and common everyday use of English questions as being the most important ones. Once the repetitive questions keep getting drilled in a student’s mind, they keep improving in their grammar ability. Secondly, I work with students to solve each question one by one, if required explaining what modality is applicable every time and what makes a particular choice the correct answer. The critical reasoning section is not that hard for a bulk of pre-engineering Asian kids to do well in. Here as well, some question types are oft repeated with different wording and a different scenario presented each time to tickle the academic membrane; but, since the logical ability is required more than profound English, this section usually doesn’t take too long for kids to master. Reading comprehension also requires some practice, focus, and understanding the main idea of the passage and one can easily get 80% of the questions correct.

Throughout my illustrious career, I’ve had the good fortune of teaching both aspiring post-graduate students intending to pursue a Master’s degree in a Business discipline from abroad, and working professionals with immense work experience under their belt wishing to complete their education from a reputable university. In either scenario, my approach is simple. I realize that most students often lack belief in their own ability to excel in the GMAT preparation in Lahore and require constant encouragement and reinforcement that they have it in them to do achieve a good score. All they have to do is absorb the knowledge I share with them, and keep practicing sample tests, practice questions, and helpful GMAT exercises regularly.
