Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
During this session, the student and I took 2 quizzes: 1 over degrees of adverbs, and one over ordinal numbers in Latin. He did very well on both and only missed one multiple choice question on each one. Also, he received a 100% on the Roman violence essay that we submitted last time. I hope that he continues to work on his Latin lessons over the break. He needs to stay motivated!
The student and I reviewed for his test on sampling distributions, confidence intervals for one population means, and the introduction to hypothesis testing. We talked about how increasing a sample size increases the precision with which we can approximate the population mean (Law of Large Numbers). We practiced comparing x bar of various sample sizes to the population mean, and discussed when you can use a sample to approximate the mean (with restrictions when n<15, when the sample is (approximately) normally distributed when 15<n<30, and anytime when n>30). We also discussed when you use z and t tests, and practiced finding a z score based on a certain sample mean and standard deviation (either of the sample or the population).
The student had a test the next day on fungi, protists, and bacteria. He seemed to understand all concepts, but needed to study more to solidify the knowledge. I think he is more than capable of acing the exam with the proper preparation.
The first hour with the student was spent working on preparation for the NNAT. The second hour was a Geometry review.
The student wants to improve her SAT Math score from 640 to 700 or above, so we have decided to focus on the Math section during our sessions. We went over what she thinks her weak areas are (sequences, sets probability, algebra, numbers & operations, logic & data analysis) and started doing practice problems on sets, data analysis, and logic.
The student had looked up the vocabulary words we wrote down last week, so we began by reviewing that material. We worked on the critical reading section this week, starting with pages 60-61, which we had gotten halfway through last week. We are progressing a little slowly through this section, working through problems individually, in order to narrow in on the correct answer. We talked through the techniques, and worked the problems together for the first set of questions, but for the next passage, I had him do the passage alone, so that he could get a sense of the timing. For problems 7-12, we took 25 minutes, since we were going fairly slowly. We tried for real test timing, on pages 80-81, and it took 18 minutes to do these 13 problems (we didn't have time to go over them this time). He has no homework tonight besides emailing me his problem set, since we are meeting again in the morning.
Today, both students were so enthusiastic about their work. I really love their willingness to work so hard and try their best! They completed several vocabulary exercises with both students utilizing the dictionary which the first in particular has become quite proficient. This is fantastic because it is a great tool which they can continue to use independently after our sessions end. They are evidently both retaining and using many of the words they are learning throughout their school day which is also encouraging. In my session with the second student, she read 3 chapters of the Boxcar Children aloud to me. At this point, I will probably begin transitioning her to reading both aloud and silently for comprehension as that is what will be required of her for the exam. I am really, truly pleased with her progress; she is a diligent worker and a bright young lady.
The student has a quiz on Monday. Most of it is simplification of algebra problems, and then evaluating those problems with values. She also worked on distribution and how to distribute numbers outside of the parenthesis. We will be reviewing the same stuff and working on more problems for her quiz on Monday at our next session
Student 1 and I met during this session, and Student 2 was not at school. After trying to contact him, Student 1 and I began our own session. Student 1 showed me the syllabus online that his teacher uses, and we worked on two assignments that were posted. These were both reviews of materials from previous sessions, that we'd done and included: systems of two equations, graphing lines, and converting different forms of equations into the standard form (y=mx+b). After we had finished completing these, Student 1 and I worked separately on word problems (work and distance type).
The student and I had a meeting to solidify her understanding of fractions. She did a good job, but there are a few problems I'll have to write other examples for and send to her. She's been doing really well focusing!
I went over several practice logic games the student had completed prior to our session. We discussed time saving strategies and tips for drawing effective master sketches and making deductions. We then went over assumption and inference questions. She has made a lot of progress with the logic games and assumption questions but would benefit from continued practice. I assigned her a practice logic game and logical reasoning set for our next session.
Today the student and I started out reviewing flash cards for division and multiplication. He is still having some trouble with 9x6, 9x4, 8x8, and 8x3. We reviewed solving these time tables using ones that he knows and counting to the next one. Then we continued reading "The Chocolate Touch", getting to chapter 2. He read a few pages and continues to retain interest in the story, reviewing the story line after reading. We finished be reviewing multiplication and division flash cards.

How does Varsity Tutors help you prepare for the GMAT?
If you’ve already decided to take the GMAT, you know that preparing for an aptitude test is a large investment of time, energy, and money. It also can be a great deal of pressure, as the stakes are high, you have limited time, and you may be anxious about what to expect. Naturally, you’re eager to ensure that your test preparation efforts are as focused and effective as possible. Our New York City GMAT tutors will make sure you minimize wasted time and stay on track to achieve meaningful progress.
While you may know that preparing for the GMAT isn’t simply a matter of rote memorization and drills, that doesn’t really give you an idea of how to prepare.

We can help.
