Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered material from the biological sciences section and discussed the student's upcoming test date. Specifically we covered topics in organic chemistry and biology. The student did great!"
"This was the student's and my final session. We spent most of our session discussing her final preparation before her test next Thursday. She plans to take at least three more full length practice exams, and possible a fourth if she is still feeling well rested and not burned out. Her last test scores have been good, and she feels that she is gaining confidence with most of the material. Her BS score has been consistently a 9/10, and her physics has been a 9/10 over the last few tests. We spoke in detail about how to make sure she is mentally/emotionally prepared for her test, including: what to do the day before the test, how to get herself rested far in advance of the test day, and how to handle breaks on test day. We also worked through several practice problems that she had encountered in her full-length practice exams. Some of these topics included: separation techniques, using molar ratios in the context of Faraday's, and general approach to minimize minor errors. She will be able to email me if she has any specific questions before her test next week."
"We went over stoichiometry passages. The student did well today overall. She had some questions wrong because she misread the question but we went over them and she has a good grasp of the stoichiometry material now. One strategy we went over was being able to approximate answers rather than calculating it out exactly which is really useful on the MCAT for time preservation."
