When I started taking courses for the GRE at the Dia Gerontoudi Prep Center, I was quite stressed out. Memories of last-minute undergraduate applications flashed back; I wanted things to go differently this time. Thanks to Dia and her team, they did.

Thank you, Dia, for guiding me through the GRE’s vocabulary section by giving me invaluable advice and ameliorating my vocabulary.

Thank you, Thomas, for helping me find the inspiration needed to write my essays and coaching me throughout the application process.

Thank you, Mr. Karalis, for alleviating my fears about what I thought was a daunting math section by simplifying complex math concepts and taking the extra time to answer my questions as well as those of my fellow classmates.

Last but not least, thank you Vally, for always welcoming us with a smile and giving us helpful advice and information.

Most importantly, thank you to all the team for believing in me and supporting me from the start and pushing me to do my best.

I strongly recommend the Dia Gerontoudi Prep Center, I couldn’t have done it without them. Good luck to all!
