Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on Verbal Reasoning and time management. He is still having a problem with maintaining his pace. His grasp of the question/answer puzzle seems to be improving. I left him with some physics problems and assigned him practice on temporal pacing"
"Today we covered questions from the biological and physical sciences sections of the MCAT. For the biology section we discussed strategies for dealing with complex and overwhelming passages. I advised skimming the passage, reading the question, and returning to the passage for details. I also advised leaving hard questions for the end, as they can eat up large portions of time. In physical sciences we reviewed general chemistry concepts and problem solving skills. We supplemented this with AP Chemistry questions. We also went over mental math and estimation. Overall the session went very well."
"The student and I reviewed viruses, fungi, prokaryotic vs eukaryotic, and prokaryotic reproduction. We started to talk about the immune system. I also talked about working through biology questions from a conceptual and critical reasoning standpoint."
"We just met and discussed what her strengths and weaknesses had previously been on the test. We will be focusing strongly on the Physical Sciences section and doing a lot of practice on Verbal Reasoning. We also discussed plans for upcoming sessions."
"The student and I reviewed her exam self-assessment for physics, making it halfway through all the questions that she answered incorrectly. She scored well above average in every section, and I'm optimistic about her performance next month!"
"The student has really found his groove with Grouping games. He's really gotten completely comfortable. The only mistakes he's making are simple ones that can be avoided! I encouraged him to slow down and make sure he's answering the question at hand. At this point, if this is his only problem, we're in great shape. We'll finish up grouping and Hybrid/Combo games as well as any other questions he might have. Nice Work!"
