Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over the first half of a practice set she did since our last session and then worked on the second half together. The student is doing really well -- she is answering many questions correctly. We then spent a lot of time answering numerical entry questions (focusing on word problems and geometry)."
"The student and I went through a practice test together. We focused on conceptualizing problems before jumping into solving them to save time and prevent her from doing unnecessary work. I have encouraged her to start practicing tests on the computer to prepare for the format of the test."
"The student and I reviewed the algebra review exercises and began the data analysis section review (graphs, measures of center and spread, and rules of probability)."
"The student and I reviewed evaluating arithmetic and algebra GRE problems today. I gave her problems covering simplifying equations containing variables from her book and other resources. We also reviewed factoring equations. At the end of the session, I gave her a reading assignment from her book with practice problems that we will review during our next session."
"The student is looking to go back to school for her Ph.D., which requires solid GRE scores. We are working on basic geometry, trigonometry, and algebra. She is able to quickly add/multiply/subtract/divide numbers in her head, so we are working on the more abstract algebraic equations. She showed an eagerness to learn and was very receptive to any advice and teaching I gave. She is an ideal student to work with, and I look forward to working with her further."
"We started with basic concepts in algebra, geometry and trigonometry, and followed it up by practicing questions and testing concepts."
"We went over GRE quantitative problems on the test: geometry, algebra, substitution, probability, exponent properties, strategies such as plugging in numbers, and ratios. This was a review session before his test the next day. Reviewed math principles used on the GRE."
"Today we kept reviewing the math workbook. We focused on data analysis, probability and the exponent/logarithmic rules."
"We covered the final concepts in algebra including graphing, linear and quadratic equations, and solving quadratics."
"I met with the student on Thursday to continue with our study of the GRE Math. We worked on several Math basics, including many formulas she will need to know for the exam."
"The student and I reviewed problems in the GRE review book. She has not taken much math since high school, but she seems to be picking up a lot."
"This was my first session with the student. We took a diagnostic mini test. We will meet intensely twice a week for a month until the date of her exam."
