Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we first went over the homework, and I explained to her how to do a number of questions. Then, we continued to work with the math concepts. We went over polygons, area, volume, charts, graphs, word problems, etc. Then we did some tone questions in the reading comprehension section. The student is doing very well. I definitely see significant improvement in all areas. She is also following all the work I have assigned. I have great confidence that she will score much higher on the next test than on her previous test."
"The student seems really motivated to succeed in his test. We did a practice writing segment and his improvement from the last one was easy to see. He really seems to listen to my feedback. He is having done great successes with the math practice as well but still needs to focus on reading the full question sometimes and showing his work and not trying to breeze through."
"We continued to work on both verbal and math test prep today. I had the student try some exam-style verbal and math questions (sentence completions for the verbal and quantitative comparisons for the quant) to see how she would cope with the same material presented in a different style."
"In this session, the student and I continued to go through the practice test and touched on all of the sections, focusing more heavily on math and reading comprehension. He has been studying over the vocabulary lists and has been doing well in that area and his math is improving also."
"For our first session, the student and I discussed his previous test. He explained that he did very well on the reading section, and that he thought the math section was the hardest. We first went over some math concepts that he would see on the test- such as percents, fractions, and converting between decimals and fractions. We did several synonym practice problems. We also looked at the analogy section and the main relationships tested. We did some practice problems, first stating which type of relationship the problem tested, and then looking at the answer choices. We discussed the elimination strategy, as well as the importance of not answering every question. For next session, the student should review the analogy relationships and do some practice problems."
"Student 1: Last week we had done area/circumference of a circle, and we reviewed this concept. We also did a few problems on finding the area of a triangle. Student 2: We went over some homework word problems about properties of triangles and finding the perimeter/area. We also did decimals-->fractions-->percentage, which he seemed to understand. Finally, we did part of whole problems."
