Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I met for our first session. I first gave a general overview of the test and we discussed her study progress so far. At her request, we focused on the quantitative portion of the test. We began with some easier questions and then advanced toward medium-level difficulty questions. I explained the strategy for the different question types in this section. I also explained the math concepts involved when necessary. Overall, she is better prepared than she thinks for this section, but we will continue to try and improve her score with practice on medium- and high-level difficulty questions."
"The student and I went over the introductory math chapter in the prep book, and we completed about half of the Numbers and Equations chapter. For homework, I will send her links to math practice websites, as well as a vocabulary handout so she can get started on memorizing vocabulary words."
"The student and I went over the practice test that she took. As we went over the answers, there were several questions she clearly knew how to solve. We reviewed some reading comp and vocabulary techniques. We also went over some statistics basics. For homework, she is going to finish reviewing the test, marking questions she does not know how to solve, even with the notes, and she is also going to do a verbal and a math practice set, timed."
"The student and I went over two essays and a practice verbal section. We focused specifically on reading comprehension questions, and talked about focusing on finding the specific wording of the questions/ answers in the main passage."
"The student and I went through the math sections of an model test to practice and get a feel for the software interface. Overall, these questions went well, so I have confidence in his taking the exam tomorrow."
"We went over the basics again. He is taking his GMAT soon, and this was his last session before this first attempt. If it doesn't go well, we'll review some more and he'll take it again in August. After reviewing the basics, we went over some questions from his practice exam. He feels very confident going into the GMAT and his practice exam scores exceeded his expectations greatly."
