How To Raise Your GRE Prep Motivation With Vince Kotchian
Let's consider three categories:
- People who have the discipline to do the GRE prep they need to do
- People who don't have the discipline do the GRE prep they need to do
- People who thought they had the discipline but then who find out the hard way they don't
If you're in either of those two latter categories, this course is for you.
I'm operating under a simple premise, here. If you're know what you need to do but you're not doing it, increasing your motivation will help you generate the discipline to get shit done.
Going back to our three categories, #3 interests me the most. Who hasn't made a New Year's resolution and then failed to follow through? We all have set goals and then found we didn't really want to do the work required to achieve them... so we didn't. To put it mildly, this creates a problem if we've made a plan to apply to grad, business, or law school and want to submit a competitive GRE score -- yet we find ourselves not studying. How can we help fix this problem? The GRE prep pantheon only works if you do the work.

About My Motivation Course
In the course, I'll be teaching you how to increase your motivation in six areas:
- Biohacks: physical inputs and actions
- Subtraction: cutting out the crap that saps your motivation
- Sleep: get more and better rest
- Mental Hacks: change the way you think
- Spiritual Hacks: using meditation, gratitude, and other tools
- Camaraderie: lifting each other up
The cool thing about motivation is that we can create a virtuous cycle: one of the things that increases motivation is successfully doing hard things. The motivation increase from those hard things will help you do more hard things. I hope the course will boost your motivation enough to get that cycle rolling.

Vince: I grew up in Connecticut and completed the honors program at Boston College. I moved to San Diego in 2007, and I’ve been working full-time as a test-prep tutor ever since. I've scored a perfect 170 in verbal (three times) and a 167 in quant (twice) on the GRE.
GRE prep is literally all I do. I've co-authored GRE prep books and created GRE courses and apps, but I spend most of my days working with people one-on-one. I enjoy tutoring since it's a conversation, and discussion is actually what makes the process so valuable. It lets me follow what you're thinking and focus on what you need most, whether that's content (like understanding math concepts), strategy (like figuring out if a reading comprehension answer choice is right or wrong), timing, or even something like study skills, test anxiety, or test-taking skills.
My goal is to help you both master the GRE and be efficient and productive with your study time. If you're applying to a competitive program and want to give yourself every possible chance to score well, I'm your guy.
