Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight the student and I worked on Sentence Correction problems. We talked about a general strategy (scanning and grouping answer choices) and reviewed the six most common grammar mistakes tested on the GMAT (verbs, pronouns, modifiers, parallelism, idioms and miscellaneous errors). We did several questions of each type together."
"Walked through his practice problems that he missed and didn't understand. Talk about a number of things that should make it easier for him to diagnose the structure of a sentence and then correct it."
"The student and I went over question types and strategies for the Reading Comprehension section. Previously, he had found this section difficult, but towards the end, he was getting almost every question right."
"In our tutoring session, I covered challenging GMAT problems involving ratios, percents, proportions, and fractions. I also reviewed concepts of statistics involving mean, median, averages, and sums. In addition, the student is now able to conceptually grasp the tougher word problems involving two linear equations. Overall, she is improving quite well. I encouraged her take a practice exam or review all the problems that we covered so far."
"For the last session, we finished reviewing quantitative problem types. We covered sets, geometry, measurement problems, and data interpretation. The student is much more familiar with quantitative problem types. Wishing her the best of luck on the GMAT next Tuesday!"
"Tonight was my first meeting with the student. It's been awhile since he's studied for the LSAT. Accordingly, he hasn't done any practice recently, so we began by re-orienting him to LSAT study, introducing the resources he'll be using, and discussing the general culture of test prep and LSAT prep in particular. We ran through the ground rules of the test, including the sections and scoring, how the scores are used, etc. He's going to take an old practice exam this Saturday, and we're going to use that to structure our introduction to the test material properly in our next meeting."
