Brent Hanneson - BSc (math), BEd, MEd (math education)

Hello and welcome to my GRE video course. Here’s a brief summary of my experience:

  • 1992: became a high school math teacher
  • 2002: began teaching/tutoring the GRE
  • 2007: created a GRE courseware package that the University of British Columbia uses in its own GRE preparation courses and licenses to other schools
  • 2013: created the videos on this website
  • 2013 to present: updated videos to reflect changes to the GRE
  • 2013 to present: as a moderator at gre.myprepclub.com, I've responded to over 5,000 questions
  • Present: My Youtube channel has over 3.5 million views 

Over the past 19 years, I’ve identified the obstacles that impede students’ progress, and I’ve discovered the GRE-specific skills and strategies required to beat this challenging test.

I hope to share with you everything I’ve learned. 


This website isn’t the product of my efforts alone. In fact, I can only take credit for the instructional content. Several years ago, I was lucky enough to find an awesome programmer named Chris Charpentier who puts up with my wildly uninformed programming requests. On the design front, my wife is responsible for all things aesthetic, including the website’s layout, functionality and more (she’s also the world’s greatest mom!).
