Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the essays that he wrote from the last meeting. They were very good. We then went through a verbal section. The student is a strong writer and has strong verbal acumen."
"I met again with the student earlier today for our second session. Today we focused on the short reading passages."
"My first GRE tutoring session with the student went well. Initially, she had difficulty with her video on the Online Platform, but eventually we resolved the technical issues. As she expressed in our introductory call, the student would like help on all of the sections of the exam, particularly the Analytical Writing and Verbal Reasoning sections. We started by working through the Verbal Reasoning Practice Questions chapter GRE guide book. I explained strategies to answer Text Completion, Sentence Equivalence, and Reading Comprehension questions, including looking for key words, summarizing paragraphs in a few words, coming up with your own answers, and eliminating incorrect answer choices. I also encouraged the student to note any words in the questions, passages, and answer choices that she is unfamiliar with and make a list of words to look up later. For our next tutoring session, the student will complete the rest of the Verbal Reasoning Practice Questions. She will also practice her vocabulary by using her GRE flash cards and creating definitive sentences with those words as well."
