Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For our initial meeting, we discussed the student's history with the GRE, goal scores, and the student's areas of greatest concern. He is working with a friend on basic mathematics, so for the time being, we are focusing on test specific techniques and processes. I showed him 3 ways to address algebra problems (plugging in, hidden plug ins, and plugging in the answers). We practiced on numerous questions. The student did very well with hidden plug ins and relatively well with standard plug ins. He understood the concept of plugging in the answers, but we need to do some additional work translating word problems to ensure the proper mathematical processes are used. He will do homework from the GRE books that he has and an online practice test site prior to our next meeting."
"We covered various math topics, permutations, combinations and probability. She showed good improvement, and I left her with more practice online. We are going to meet Thursday to go over any questions she has and to push forward."
"Since it was our first session, we discussed the test structure and content, and general strategy. We also looked at a variety of questions from the verbal and quantitative sections and some essay prompts."
