Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"My twelfth session with the student went well. We discussed the Verbal section of the practice exam that she took. She feels that she was most challenged by the Sentence Correction questions on the practice exam, but overall, she felt confident about her progress. We moved to the assigned practice questions from the Data Sufficiency section of the GMAT guide. The student answered the majority of the questions correctly. She noted that she was having trouble when faced with ratios and work problems, so I pointed out questions in the Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency sections that she should go through again as practice. This will help her feel more comfortable with the concepts, and we will continue to practice these problems until she reaches that comfort level. Finally, we reviewed the assigned practice questions from the Sentence Correction section. The student answered the majority of these questions correctly as well. When we went over the questions that she answered incorrectly, she understood where she had gone wrong and why the correct answer was the best choice. Since the student still has the most difficulty with Data Sufficiency and Sentence Correction questions, for our next session, she will complete practice questions from the Data Sufficiency and Sentence Correction sections of the GMAT guide."
"Today we reviewed geometry and "oddball" word problems from the GMAT prep book. We reviewed problems he'd struggled with and did new ones. We continued on to work on Data Sufficiency problems together."
"The student and I discussed the overall application process, goals and responsibilities, composition of the exam and the student's expectations of himself, the test, and the school. I assigned the student to take an assessment test before our next session."
