Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we went over the general structure and expectations for the GRE. I then introduced all the strategies we'll be using, both for the quantitative and verbal sections. We then reviewed all the geometry needed for the exam.

The student and I met for our first session of GRE tutoring. She told me that she wants to focus on the quantitative section of the GRE. For the first session we did some practice so I could see where she currently was. She is going to need the most help in geometry and trigonometry. We spent most of the session doing practice tests on algebraic equations and geometric concepts.

We began by reviewing issues that he had in the algebra section of problems. This led to a long discussion on the rules for exponentiation and radicals. Following this, we continued through the algebra section problems and likewise addressed problems from chapter 27 on triangles. I assigned the remaining problems with which he had issues, a section of problems on exponents / radicals, and encouraged him to try the problems on fractions / decimals. (He has most of these concepts in a general way. This will help to ascertain any specific deficiencies.) Likewise, I encouraged him to look at some resources about factoring to prepare for our next meeting.

The session started with me going through example outlines for the test's essays as per the student's request. I did an extensive think aloud through the process, and he took notes. I instructed him to look at more sample prompts and encouraged him to write outlines to discuss during our next session. The rest of the time was focused on the Quantitative Reasoning section. We went through a math section from a sample test. It became apparent that there are many mathematical formulas and postulates he needs help remembering, although he has the math skills. Thus for next session, I have formulated a math review we will complete before doing more sample problems.

During this session I prepared a number of sample questions from each of the subsections of the exam. The student and I worked our way through these problems, occasionally with an additional variation on a particularly difficult one, so that I could appropriately gauge how comfortable she is with the existing material.

The student and I worked through a practice GRE test. As expected, her verbal skills are quite advanced and she will do very well on that portion of the exam. We went over strategies on how to approach the Argument task. I explained to her how she will need to break down the argument into its three pieces: evidence, assumptions, and conclusion. The idea of identifying and challenging assumptions was very intuitive for her, and I'm sure she will do well on that part of the exam. The area she will need to focus her efforts on the most is the quantitative section.

We continued to review algebra and arithmetic problems, moving on to include linear inequalities and quadratic equations. We then went back to review some practice problems the student had completed before our first session and she found that she was able to do more of them this time around.

The student and I began our first session by discussing hers goals with regards to the exam and her graduate school pursuits in general. We did a bit of math concept review, since she said math was her weakness on the test. She caught on quickly, and I think with proper application of concepts, she can do well on the quantitative section.

Today was my first session with the student. We discussed her goals and her previous standardized test experience, and did some preliminary vocabulary and math assessment. She has a good vocabulary and significant writing experience, so we will be starting with math coaching as I think she can realize significant gains in that area quickly.

We reviewed both essay formats and I looked over one of her first attempts at an argument essay, which showed some areas of improvement. For math, her main weakness is statistical analysis problems, so those problems were reviewed in depth. I emphasized that vocab memorization is really the only area of improvement in verbal, so we are working on memorizing some rootsr.

The student is a very bright individual looking to pursue graduate studies in Veterinary Medicine. We covered the GRE basics test taking strategies, outlined his study plan for the next month and divided 14 hours of tutoring time.

I provided him with studying material, as well as studying tips. He is looking to raise both his math and verbal sections by approximately 10 points. His exam is October 29th, the schedule is tight but if he spends enough time studying I am confident he will raise his score.

Our next session will be Wednesday at the library.

Went over Critical Reasoning Questions: Conclusion, Evidence, Assumptions; Strengthen/Weaken; Inference; Paradox; Bolded Sentences. It went very well. She seemed to have a good grasp of the concepts and will solidify them with more practice.

How can a GRE tutor from Varsity Tutors help you master GRE?

When preparing for the GRE, an able guide is more important than most students realize. Although you will likely have some degree of mastery of the English language and/or mathematics, test prep for the GRE requires reasoning skills that aren’t intuitively used in everyday life. GRE tutoring can help to teach you the best ways to approach and analyze questions in order to see exactly what is asked and to gain a clear sense of the “cues” and “hints” embedded in the questions. In day-to-day life, we do not usually have to listen for hints to fill in sentence blanks, choose best-matching words, or solve complex math problems; however, our tutors have spent a lot of time perfecting this specialized art and can help you become expert at it as well.
In addition, a skilled tutor is an able guide in helping you to learn the vocabulary that you will need to master the GRE verbal sections, as well as to recall those long-forgotten math formulas. GRE tutoring will help you learn not only tricks for memorization, but also analysis. This will aim to help you remember the information more completely and even to retain material long after the test is complete. This is a real strength of a personal tutor, who is able to move past any gimmicks and rote memorization in order to help you expand your understanding in a knowledgeable and educated manner.
