Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we went over techniques for doing well on the verbal section of the GRE and techniques for learning and retaining the vocabulary. We also continued working on the Math."
"He performed well in the Easy and Medium Verbal Reason Practice sections in the GRE guide, so we started by working through the Hard Verbal Reasoning Practice Questions that he answered incorrectly. I explained strategies to answer Text Completion, Sentence Equivalence, and Reading Comprehension questions, including noting key words, summarizing paragraphs in a few words, coming up with your own answers, and eliminating incorrect answer choices. I also encouraged him to note any words in the questions, passages, and answer choices that he is unfamiliar with and make a list of words to look up later. Additionally, we discussed methods for approaching the Analysis of an Issue essay, including outlining ideas, structuring the essay, and using sentence variety and vocabulary variety. Then we moved to the Analysis of an Argument essay and discussed identifying the argument in the prompt, the assumptions, and the flaws and determining information that if included could make the argument stronger. For our next tutoring session, he will complete Section 4 of Practice Test 1 in the GRE guide along with Chapter 5 and Chapter 6."
"I met with the student again this morning for GRE study. During this session, we focused on the Reading Comprehension questions."
