Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the data analysis exercises including permutations and combinations and probability. This was an extra session - at our next session we will go over the GRE practice test 1."
"We worked on Verbal Reasoning for the GRE, specifically Reading comprehension. I will be sending him a verbal reasoning practice set after this."
"Today the student and I discussed her academic background and goals, and then spent the session doing an overview of the framework and general strategies to use to get the most points out of the test. I told her about what sections would be on the test, the timing, and a strategy to find and do the easy problems first in order to maximize points before time runs out. We also went over the guessing strategy and why she should never leave a problem blank after doing process of elimination. As far as the test content, I previewed a framework that she can use every time for the essay sections. We also discussed the verbal sections, and I advised her to study prefixes and suffixes in addition to her vocabulary flashcards. We spent the rest of the time going over tricks for the quantitative section. We looked at a couple of problems where process of elimination can be used through ballparking the answer before any actual calculations are made. I also showed her some common trap answers, like trick questions in which the test asks for something besides the variable. From here on I will work with the student on her Math skills. I left her about 25 pages of pre-algebra and algebra to read before we next meet."
