Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we purely covered reading comprehension and took one passage from a practice test the student had done as way to go over the various techniques and methods one should use in dealing with reading comprehension on the college entrance exam. Most importantly, for now, I emphasized how the student should focus on correctness and correct form over speed."
"Utilized student's review materials to go over reading comprehension problems as well as logical problem solving. Demonstrated outlining of passages, inferring from context, use of paraphrasing to anticipate answers. Demonstrated setting up problems with limitations presented and how to focus on limiting factors relevant to question to narrow down possible correct answers to test if they fit possible arrangements."
"Reviewed several topics in gen chem - equilibrium, acids, bases, the Henderson-Hasselbach equation, and pH."
"This time we went over Verbal Reasoning passages together, and she plans to have a full practice test finished for us to review at our next meeting."
"The student and I met and went over additional physical science questions today. We discussed his timeline today and his current teaching course load as well as the fact that his medical school entrance exam date was changed. We went over a number of physics problems today. We discussed buoyancy and also went over the concepts of partial pressure, molecular weight's relationship to velocity and some kinetics problems. He is doing well. He will need to dedicate a couple hours a day to practice problems to achieve his goal score."
"We went over various questions that the student answered incorrectly while doing a practice test, and we focused on assumption and strengthening skills in the logical reasoning section."
"Got to familiarize myself with the student and came up with a plan to take the January MCAT. Did a Verbal passage from the practice prep book to start utilizing new Verbal strategy"
"I went over the entire layout of the MCAT and the outlines of all the sections for the MCAT: physical sciences, verbal reasoning and biological sciences. In addition, we also went over a possible study schedule and what areas the student needs to focus on for the MCAT. She is feeling confident about the MCAT after reviewing it."
"Two-action games, emphasis on moving back and forth between actions and maximizing deductions before moving to questions. Also re-emphasized importance of writing down work."
"First meeting with the student. Reviewed method for attaching and solving formal logic questions and texts"
"We worked on reviewing logical reasoning homework, different types of logical reasoning questions, time management during the test, understanding personal strengths and weaknesses, and budgeting time accordingly."
"The student and I went over a law school assessment exam, working through sequencing logic games, mix-match logic games, and analytic assumption questions."
