Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Good first meeting! We covered a lot of material, working slowly through different techniques for answering questions relating to number properties and fractions. For the future, we will continue a topic review of math, while covering medium and hard difficulty level verbal questions. We will also spend probably one session or half a session on the Writing Section. Cobwebs seem to be slowly coming off, the test prep book is good for extra practice problems. Assignments for next week: 1. Please take PRACTICE TEST 1 on the GRE software, it is a timed test to see how you perform under time. 2. I will email 3 number properties drill sets and 3 fractions drill sets. Each drill set has about 12-15 questions. I will also recommend an app later this week to do arithmetic and mental math with during the student's commute. Begin to keep track of any words encountered while taking Practice Test 1 that you cannot quickly define in a few words. Err on the side of adding a word to the list, not leaving it off. Keep the list in an excel file labeled GREVocab and place the word in column 1, and a short definition in column 2 that you have looked up. Next meeting: Wednesday at 7pm."
"We reviewed quantitative probability and statistics for the test. We discussed different vocabulary building methods."
"The student and I reviewed more passages and fill ins that he found confusing and discussed some of the confusing phrases/expressions that are commonly heard/read in the English language."
