Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student completed two sections--getting 18 correct on the arguments section and 21 on reading comprehension. We reviewed incorrect answers from the arguments section. Then we worked through new questions from other tests--one logic game, one reading comprehension passage, and some arguments. We've identified a primary area to work on--reading more slowly and focusing on understanding content instead of focusing on timing."
"The student and I worked on Assumption questions in the Logical Reasoning part of the test. We covered what an assumption was and what the conclusion was and how to solve the problems. I sent an email including takeaways from the lesson."
"We are hitting the hardest logic games questions we can find on past exams. The student is discovering that as we work on the harder games his times on the medium and easy difficulty games is improving."
"The student just needs to keep reviewing the explanatory math materials in his book. He may also consider googling some topics and finding good materials online. Many of the operations are familiar to him, but at this time he does need more time reviewing them so that he can apply them later. Specifically, we worked with factor distribution, square roots, and manipulating both sides of an equation."
"We worked through scientific notation, one work problem, simple and compounded interest, some sentence correction for parallel construction, and 1-2 reading comprehension problems. He's pretty solid on verbal."
"The student and I met for our first session. We went over many concepts that would be on the GMAT quant section and discussed what the exam was trying to test. This included reviewing number properties, fractions, geometry, algebra, and divisibility as well as tricks and formulas associated with each section."
