Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the student's individual study plan up to her anticipated test date in February. She will be working through a 90-day GRE math intensive plan, supplementing with a prep book in areas where she has some difficulty. We also spent some time again working through problems that gave her trouble during our break, focusing more on identifying the different concepts behind the problem and how to use those to find the answer rather than solving the problem by brute force. This helped to identify one possible weakness with scientific notation and exponents. We then turned to the verbal reasoning and worked through a few passage questions. She has excellent critical reading ability. We also briefly discussed her concerns about the analytical writing section and some basic preparation strategies for that, which we will study in depth in the next session or two."
"Today, the student and I reviewed her latest practice test, focusing mostly on radicals, harder probability, geometry, and adjusting strategies to solve problems more quickly. She takes the test on the 30th, and we've two more sessions before then."
"We went over a bunch of practice problems. I think the student is doing pretty well in terms of quantitative problems. It was a good session."
