Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the results of the exam. We discussed electrochemical cells, concentration problems, Dalton's Law, azeotropes, and converting different concentrations to mole fractions. We also discussed kinematics and Electrostatics. We also discussed conservation of energy and digestion. We also reviewed the nature of her memory dump, and how to split it into a memory dump and personalized fact sheet. The student will do more tests, and focus on flashcards and hammering home her recall-level knowledge. I have no concerns."
"Bioscience on MCAT. The student demonstrates continued improvement in her approach to MCAT type questions. I left her with a practice passage. I'm excited about her improvement."
"We reviewed the Physical Science section of Test 5. The student did about 2/3 of the section on her own. Then we went through the last 1/3 of the section doing the passages together and working on how to set them up efficiently, and how to use the passage and question stem as resource for information that could help answer questions."
"During this session, the student and I designed our plan for the remaining time between now and her exam. She and I agree that in order to meet our goals, she will need to increase her independent study in addition to our sessions. We reviewed several topics in waves and worked through practice problems to ensure that these topics were understood. We will move on to optics/lenses and hydrostatics for next week's session."
"The student and I reviewed General Chemistry topics during this session. She grabbed the wrong book, so we're going to pick up with the physics topics at tonight's session. The chemistry topics were a little difficult for her to recall, but once we reviewed them she seemed to be very comfortable with them and was able to answer most of the questions correctly. I recommend that we review them again quickly before her exam, though, just to be sure she has a good understanding of them."
"The student intends to take the GMAT before January. From his diagnostic, I pointed out that he had two strings of wrong answers: 14-19 and 26-30. Since these questions are mostly within the 50th percentile, I emphasized time management and focusing on the current problem. He'll do a practice set before our next meeting."
