Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began our review today by finishing the section on real world math, reviewing a few strategies for approaching the charts and graphs question type. He then applied all of the concepts that we studied this week -- proportion, ratio, rate, percentage, percent change, simultaneous equations, average, and rate -- in a focused question drill. We took an especially close look at questions he felt uncertain about to reinforce the concepts we have been studying. In the last part of our session, we began the unit on geometry, looking at the properties of lines and angles and starting to examine triangle geometry."
"Worked first on reading comprehension, reviewing homework and refining strategy. Next, reviewed strategies for sentence completion and refined, based on homework. Finally, covered geometry problems strategy and reinforced the student's self-study."
"We covered the math problems from the diagnostic test and covered the math concepts he would need for the test in the meantime: percentages/ratios, geometry, solving systems of equations. We'll continue to build on these skills in the future. Lastly, we went over some reading comprehension from the diagnostic test. We talked through the logic of how to answer the questions."
"The student and I worked mainly on math today. She brought up some areas that were rusty and we practiced them. She commented that the areas made a lot more sense after the review. She has some extra practice to do that will help cement the information in her mind. Well done!!"
"Covered probabilities, permutations and combinations. Reviewed answers to a sample test done by student. Did several word problems covering different subjects (algebra, percents, ratios, statistics, etc.). Student did very well solving problems and learning techniques and strategies for solving these problems."
"The student and I covered several questions from his practice before turning to the quant section. We spoke about the data sufficiency question types, general strategy, and categories that they may use to trick test-takers. We then turned to basic math principles to fill any gaps. We will continue into some of the tougher strategies next session."
