Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I went over the basic format of the test with the student. I explained the basic strategy for logic games and had him practice through three games. I gave him a practice test to take so we can set a benchmark for him."
"This session the student and I continued to work on logic games. We started by going over the second numerical distribution problem that I asked her to work on her own. She was able to set it up, but had trouble with the questions, so we went through them together. We then went through a grouping game I had given her to try before going on to our next chapter: Identifying templates and possibilities that limit games. We quickly went through how to do this and how to identify games in which this is possible. We then went through a few games in which we used these skills to quickly solve games that would have otherwise been very difficult. He seems to be doing well with the games, but we will keep working on them for a while until she feels completely comfortable."
"We reviewed the logical reasoning questions that the student had done since last session. We also worked on logic games and discussed timing."
"Prior to today's session, the student took two full diagnostics. Following our general discussion, we moved on to logical reading. After reviewing some questions he answered, we proceeded to a logic games section he had completed prior to my arrival. I showed him how I would set up the logic games we reviewed together, which I hope was a helpful exercise. Because we have only one session remaining, I plan to compile questions that relate to his primary areas of relative weakness and review them on Wednesday."
"I had asked the student to do a timed practice test between or last session and this one so I could assess how different his performance is under time constraints. He did not have a chance to complete the test, but we did review the two pages of logic games he did from two different tests. He did pretty well. We reviewed some more logic games practice questions together. Again, he did pretty well but he needs to be more careful about reading the questions carefully to make sure he doesn't miss words like "except." Eventually, we moved on to reading comprehension. I have told him some review books I'd like him to get and assigned him a timed practice test again this week."
"We spent two hours on logical reasoning, ending with strengthen questions. The student does really well on these questions. Next session we will focus on logical reasoning again, especially sufficient and necessary assumption questions. We will also do an overview of finding contrapositives."
