Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I showed the student the Data Sufficiency format. We worked on Value questions until he felt comfortable with the format, and then I introduced yes/no Data Sufficiency questions."
"We wrapped up by going over his recent practice tests. He still has timing issues, although they are getting better. I gave him a final work list to do before doing more full tests."
"My first GMAT tutoring session with the student went well. As she expressed in our introductory call, she needs help on both the Quantitative and Verbal sections of the GMAT. We started our session by going over questions in the Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving sections in the GMAT guide. I encouraged her to read each question carefully and identify what the question is asking for before trying to solve the problem. I also suggested that she save her work for reference when solving similar questions that she may encounter in the future. As we reviewed the questions that she had difficulty with, she understood why the correct answers were the best choices. Then we moved to the Critical Reasoning section. We discussed strategies for approaching Critical Reasoning questions, including reading the passage, identifying the argument and the assumptions, understanding what the question is asking for, and eliminating answer choices systematically. For our next tutoring session, she will complete a practice test, along with practice questions in the Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, and Critical Reasoning sections of her GMAT guides."
