Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"With the student, we spent the vast majority of our time during this session on Bernoulli's equation and fluid problems by completing passages from the PR physics books. The time we spent paid off as she was able to correctly answer most fluid questions by the end of our session! We also did a passage on gases and gas exchange, which involved carefully reading the passage and pulling out the relevant details."
"The student and I went over strategies for the data sufficiency section and I gave him data sufficiency practice questions covering a number of math topics, including algebra and number properties."
"This was my last lesson with the student, as she took the LSAT the next day. She is in a great place to be taking the test - she is scoring well on her practice tests and feels confident and ready to go. We went over a few questions she had on logic games and reviewed some last minute tips for that section on test day. We spent the majority of our time going over logical reasoning questions that she missed on her last practice test, and then working through logical reasoning questions together. I am sure she will do very well on her test tomorrow."
"The student and I went through a logic games section he took. I explained how he can better make deductions moving forward. We formulated a plan for him moving forward ahead of the test."
"This was the first meeting with the client. We worked on various problems from the book for diagnostic purposes. We will be beginning in-depth topical treatment during our meeting on Sunday."
"Last minute review with student, discussing strategies for ensuring that she handles logic games and timing thereof. Looked at logical reasoning questions and discussed test-day strategies."
"At my suggestion, the student has bought a few more college entrance exam prep books from Amazon. We now have plenty of material to work with. Today we first examined the games section from prep test A in the one of the books. There were a couple of challenging games, including a selection game that was fluid and difficult to diagram. This gave her good exposure to "curveballs" that could possibly be on the next exam. Following that section, we began looking at advanced linear games in the logic games book she recently received. We discussed diagramming multiple levels in these games and how to properly structure them with days of the week and position numbers at the bottom. We also went over a full advanced linear game which involved two levels. Once she is thoroughly familiar with all the types of diagrams, she will destroy the games section on the test in February. For next time, she will work on a couple sections from the October college entrance exam and cover more types of games in the logic games book."
"Today we reviewed formal logic and inference questions. The student shows marked improvement in both areas. She will do the endurance tests today, and we will review them tomorrow."
"The student and I met for another session of tutoring. In this session we worked on percents, prime factorization, and exponents. The student is progressing very well. She is moving through the book rapidly and is able to pick up the concepts with ease. Usually after a bit of help she is able to solve all of the questions by herself."
