Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She explained before our session that she would be taking the exam on Sunday, so she would like to brush up on her timed writing before the test date. At our session, she was ready to go with a practice exam. She explained that she was very comfortable with the content , but she was still nervous about the writing. We went slowly through an essay question and the corresponding multiple choice questions: taking notes as we read, outlining, then writing a finished essay. She did a great job of pulling out information from the passage to answer the essay prompt. We talked about keeping things concise for this test since the word limit is quite small. We also discussed the importance of finding a formula for answering the questions, which can help keep her on track. She did a great job forming her essay around those suggestions."
"We worked 2/3 quant and 1/3 verbal, working through a set of practice questions that I had emailed to the student. We are feeling our way, assessing his approach to quant and verbal problem solving. He seemed to be clicking right along toward the end of our two-hour session. I told him that I would send him a practice GMAT exam and asked him to complete that before our next session."
"We continued to work on dealing with prompts and essay-writing. Specifically, we focused on making essay-structure even more clear."
