Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Finished going through the two practice tests that I had printed out for him. He is mostly just rusty on math, but definitely has some problem areas when it comes to multiplying, dividing, and simplifying polynomials.
In our first session, I went through the general layout of the ACT and he told me about his previous experience with the test, what he had the most difficulty with, etc. Then we went through my strategies for the Reading section and did practice together. Initially we read the passage together and practiced underlining and annotating, and then he did some on his own.
The student and I worked hard on verbal today, reviewing a test she had just taken and going over several verbal passages together. I think that this definitely helped her to avoid overthinking and marking the wrong answer after already marking the right one. She is very capable when it comes to verbal, as long as she avoids second-guessing herself.
Went over some problems from a returned test, and did a worksheet covering what is and what isn't counted in the GDP equation. We then spent some time going over an Excel sheet he has due Wednesday, and we're meeting again tomorrow.
The student and I reviewed the science portion last week, so he took the test today and got 100%. After high fiving, he decided to do a writing test. I gave him all of his points on the writing section as well. What a joy he has been to work with. He has a wonderful future ahead of him!
Reviewed the diagnostic test that the student took over the weekend. Timing was a slight issue for him, but that will go away. The student understands all of the concepts that we've reviewed so far, but needs to keep practicing to learn quickly how to apply them.
We reviewed the structure and problem types in the assessment test. We worked on critical reasoning strategies and question types and practiced a few questions. Next we discussed homework, which included a practice test and ordering a grammar workbook.
Went through 10-15 problems in each of the following sections: data sufficiency, problem solving, critical reasoning, and sentence correction problems. The student is getting better at data sufficiency; I taught him the AD/BCE method of tackling the problems. He needs a refresher in basic math (fractions, decimals, ratios, averages, etc.) -- he'll pick these topics up quickly because he has seen them before. I encouraged him to take the diagnostic practice exam this weekend.
The student and I reviewed her recent test. We reviewed Math for most of the session and identified data sufficiency as the most critical area for her to focus on during her homework sessions. We also reviewed verbal part especially focusing on reading comprehension. Her scores in critical reading and sentence correction were strong. Shared some tips with her on how to choose the final answer after she does the eliminations of wrong answers. She is quite strong in eliminating wrong answers but makes the mistake most times in choosing the more complicated answer choice. She is making progress.
The student and I had a ton of problems to go over. I had assigned him 40 problems of each type for a total of 120 problems to do, which to his credit he diligently completed. We are not up to problems over 100 and they are getting tough. The student is getting better at calculation skills though and getting faster. Great job to the student. We will spend more time next session on speed drills.
We began with just a basic overview of how the GMAT test day goes, the scoring process, and discussed a bit about the computer adaptive nature of the test. We split the remainder of the time between the quantitative and verbal questions, discussing strategy and doing some practice problems. I asked the student to take the diagnostic test as homework before next week so we can go through it together.
I started by giving the student some more critical reasoning questions before moving on to the quantitative section. I gave her some strategies and tricks for solving math problems, which she practiced with sample questions.
How can a tutor help you succeed on the GMAT?
There are countless things about the GMAT that students need to understand and master. Varsity Tutors can help you choose a private GMAT tutor to aid you in your business school journey. Your tutor can provide you with one-on-one tutoring to help prepare you for exam day.
The GMAT, or Graduate Management Admission Test is divided into four sections: Quantitative; Verbal; Integrated Reasoning; and Analytical Writing Assessment. The quantitative section is subdivided into problem solving and data sufficiency questions. Problem solving is what you usually think of when you think of doing math, while data sufficiency measures how you analyze a math question employing your critical thinking skills. The most important and challenging aspect of the verbal section of the GMAT will come forth when you analyze and assess the validity of conflicting arguments. Integrated reasoning gives you a lot of data and asks you to integrate it into a clear picture, while the writing section gives you 30 minutes to analyze a single argument.
The GMAT is computer-based, adaptive, and extremely tricky in a number of ways. Your tutor can help you sharpen your mathematical skills, recognize the consistency of the data sufficiency answer choices, and understand how to construct analysis of an argument. GMAT tutoring can also assist you in creating a solid study schedule that consists of specific portions of time dedicated to different sections of the test. A personalized approach to your GMAT tutoring means that your unique study needs are at the forefront of your study plan. We understand that identifying your strong spots, weak areas, and preferred learning methods is important, and those factors will be incorporated into the prep plan built by your tutor.
