Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over the various types of word problems that may come up on the math section for the exam. We concentrated on those involving calculating wages, taxes, and distance. We also practiced questions from the verbal logic and analogies portions of the test. I instructed the students to practice timing themselves while taking online practice tests. It was a great session!"
"The student and I worked on the Math portion of the placement exam to begin the session. We had yet to touch mathematics and I just wanted to make sure that his parents' confidence in his math ability was founded. After taking a few practice tests, it became clear that, apart from a few concepts that require brush-up attention or are specific to the exam, he has a solid grasp on the mathematics covered on the test. For the second part of the session, we looked over the three essays that he will be sending in to his chosen university for admittance. He had some great ideas that I helped him further develop and clarify. We also made sure that the essay followed all the necessary formatting. At the session's conclusion, both the student and his mother expressed to me their newfound confidence in his application which felt incredibly rewarding to hear."
"The student completed homework from a prep course. He and I reviewed the problems he completed incorrectly. I came up with extra examples to help him solve for average, solve multiplying fractions, and solve for x in a number of situations. We also focused heavily on word problems that dealt with percentages. He has improved in finding the pattern in a series."
