SOP explaining Average GRE and Tutoring

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure about the GRE scores. I'm applying for an Ecology PhD and I'm mentioning tutoring experience, but many of the schools I'm applying to ask specifically about teaching experience/outreach.

Thanks for the reply! 

I have decided to include my tutoring experience as I think it shows my desire for a career in academia. 

Be mindful of an unfortunate fact of the Ivory Tower -- many academics are disdainful of those who aspire to teach.

Even if your potential advisors have won teaching awards, others sitting on admissions committees may want graduate students who are focused on research.
