Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Her most recent practice test scores went up pretty dramatically. We reviewed that practice test and looked over the essay structure."
"My fifth GRE tutoring session with the student went well. He practiced his vocabulary words. We reviewed the Analysis of an Issue essay that he completed in Practice Test 1 on the GRE CD. He did a good job of responding to the prompt using four separate paragraphs, supportive examples, and vocabulary variety. I encouraged him to define his thesis more clearly so the reader could easily determine which side he was taking. I also suggested he incorporate additional shorter sentences along with his long ones to demonstrate sentence variety. We then discussed general vocabulary words that were commonly found on the GRE. He used his flashcards to memorize the meanings of the words, and he created definitive sentences to visualize the words in situations that he could relate to. I helped him with the correct pronunciation of the words and explained the nuances of how the words are often used in context. For our next tutoring session, he will complete the Data Analysis and Geometry sections of the Math Review in the GRE guide along with Practice Test 2 on the GRE CD, and he will practice additional vocabulary words."
"We covered basic test taking strategy, text completion, reading comprehension, and exponent problems. I asked the student to do 45 minutes of text completion or quantitative flashcards a day in preparation for her exam and for the next time that we meet."
