Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We had our final session before the student had to take his exam. We did multiple questions from each of the subject areas of the GRE math section."
"We talked about the student's goals for the GRE, for these tutoring sessions, and for the graduate program for which she is applying. We spent a significant amount of time going over the format of the GRE - the different types of sections and questions - and finished by discussing some of the reading and writing that the student is doing to prepare for her test."
"We started with verbal/vocabulary questions (fill in the blanks with multiple blanks and fill in the blanks with synonyms), then we did a couple of reading questions, before finishing up with math (coordinate geometry, algebra, functions, integers/number theory). The student had a great attitude, as always. She has some practice tests to do. A big win from the session was the fact that the student got almost all of the verbal questions about synonyms correct! Out of all the material, she seemed to have the toughest time with coordinate geometry, but I think all she needs is a bit of review. She definitely improved a lot, even with just the small amount of review we did during our session. We went over some math strategies, including factoring to simplify even when there are no variables and using extreme values (especially when comparing two quantities). I think she has definitely made progress. She got a lot of questions right tonight, plus she just seemed to be more comfortable than usual with the vocabulary and most of the math."
