Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over a verbal practice test. She scored a 158 on it, and we're looking to break 160. I was a solid session."
"Today, we reviewed many of the concepts that I introduced last week through doing practice problems. In particular, we practiced finding factors/divisors, greatest common divisor, using prime factors, and finding lowest common multiples. The student showed significant improvement since last session in these skills. We also began the arithmetic computation chapter of his GRE book. He was already familiar with order of operations and how to multiply and divide fractions. We did several practice problems, and he improved particularly in working with negative numbers."
"We went over general concerns and last minute issues going into the test - the student is taking the test on Monday. He's generally making good progress on reading. He's doing well on the combinations and permutations problems we reviewed in earlier sessions, and he's going to be taking practice math exams between now and the test to diagnose any patterns in problems he's getting wrong. He's doing well on the issues essays. We reviewed systematic problems with his arguments essays, and I'm going to give him a brief tip sheet for the argument essays before he takes the test on Monday. He's going to let me know how he did, and we'll go from there."
