Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued our math review with the test prep book, covering fundamental math concepts such as percentages, plugging in, basic algebra, etc. We also did a practice verbal section from one of the practice tests, as the student is particularly concerned about her vocabulary and reading comprehension. Overall, she did well in the section, and I noticed already her memorization of vocab. words is helping her out with problems."
"Today, we worked our way through a packet of questions, discussing strategy and approach throughout. Then we switched to finish our section on Geometry. Specifically, we detailed the differences between the various quadrilaterals and began discussing 3 dimensional figures and how to use circles."
"Today the student and I reviewed math concepts for the GRE. Some things to focus on are the triangle inequality and practicing algebra and exponents. I left her with practice problems and will send her more practice problems in case she would like to go over them."
"The student took a practice test for homework and scored very well. There were some topics we hadn't covered; for instance, standard deviation. We reviewed the concept and did some practice problems. We haven't spent a lot of time on the Verbal section, outside of working on vocabulary and question processes. We looked at Reading Comprehension and eliminating answer choices with specific language that makes them wrong. We also looked at Sentence Equivalence and how we can narrow down answer choices."
"Today's session focused on quadrilaterals, solid geometry, and coordinate geometry, with a brief introduction to functions. The student finished the homework from the previous session and did well. We introduced a lot of content and ran through many practice problems. Homework will include a final review of geometry."
"We covered exclusively the quantitative section, as we will just about every week (his initial verbal score was excellent). The student is strong in basic fundamentals (algebra and logic), which is a very good sign. I had him work through problems."
