Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We conducted geometry review and practice, and covered common GRE vocabulary words, strategies for grouping, and memorizing vocabulary."
"For our final session, I gave the student a full verbal section and a full math section, then we discussed ways for her to prepare over the next two months before her test. In our previous sessions, she and I had worked on specific kinds of questions, rather than looking at a practice section from a GRE. With this meeting, that changed, and I gave her the two sections back to back. She did equally well on both, missing only 4 questions on each. She and I talked for the last thirty minutes of our session about how she should prepare for the test over the remaining two months before she takes the GRE. I urged her to pick up a book of practice GRE's and look over them once a week. She clearly understands the test, and merely needs to stay familiar with the types of questions the GRE has and not forget how to approach each question. I firmly believe she will do well on the GRE, and that our sessions worked out for the best."
"Today's session revolved around counting problems and probability (with permutations/combinations, naturally), and for the most part, the student seemed to grasp the concepts. My hope is that I can assign him a bunch of homework and he'll be able to work out the kinks through practice. It was a good session with much learning."
