Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on hard percent and exponent problems. Tried to create an actual testlike setting because the student has a hard time under high stress/pressure situations.
Meeting again Friday; test in 4 weeks."
"The student is almost done with the math review. He'll be done with the whole thing by Tuesday next week, when we'll start drilling in preparation for the end of August. He made it through a good portion of the geometry in the past few days, learning about triangles, polygons and circles. This stuff was all new for him, and he admitted that it took him longer to go through than the algebra. As a result, he didn't spend as much time working on the verbal. The schedule we've made allows for some flexibility in this regard. I still want him to take the GRE by the end of the month, and I told him to register by our next session.
I was pleased with how well he had learned the geometry. I thought it would be much more difficult for him to understand the concepts. He'd done a lot of studying on his own, memorizing area formulas and understanding concepts like vertical angles and interior angle sums. I helped him with understanding the properties of parallel lines and transversals and also showed him how similar triangle problems could be solved by setting up a proportion. I then observed him as he tried to solve a few problems. We didn't get much into polygons or circles. I'll get into them next week. He'll be done with geometry by then, and I'm sure he will want to talk about 3D shapes. I told him to continue with the study schedule. We're almost done with this first leg."
"We started by covering the format of the GRE, briefly reviewing the types of questions she'll encounter and the resources she will be using to prep (i.e., test prep books, online platform learning tools). The student then completed a diagnostic test which we worked through together. This test gave us both an idea of what her strengths and weaknesses are so that next week we can begin with the weak areas. She has a pretty good handle on solving word problems and algebraic equations, but she had trouble remembering specific rules for geometry questions (i.e., triangle rules, area and volume equations, etc.). I asked that she complete another online diagnostic test and that she report the results to me. I also suggested that she get started reading and working through guided examples in her test prep book for whichever subject was considered weakest on her diagnostic test. Next week, we will review whatever problems she had while working on her own. I will then give her practice problems specifically tailored to the topic for that week. In her spare time, the student should read through testtaking strategies for the GRE, spending at least 15 minutes a day learning a new strategy."
"The student and I worked on data interpretation in the GRE prep book. Topics included ratios, percents, mean, median, mode, range, column graphs, tables, stacked graphs, line graphs, and rates.
This was a great session. She is really close to taking the test, and nearly ready. She will take a fulllength practice test this weekend."

"This was a solid, wideranging first session. We went over a stack of problems that the student brought to the session; we also got planning figured out and talked through what practice resources to use. He has a book and a practice test to work on between now and Saturday."
"We covered a variety of sample questions, including percentages, fractions, ratios, lines, xy coordinates, and geometry. The student is improving at an excellent rate and is picking up new concepts with dexterity and speed. We went over general math tips and various shortcuts for different types of questions. I advised her to go over some review modules on the website for lines, fractions, and percentages."
