Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over logic games and different types of mapping. Some LR. Discussed final strategies for the test-- getting more right and taking the time needed."
"It's such a pleasure working with the student. Today, we worked on Verbal questions. We went through almost one entire Verbal assessment (60 questions) together, and she enjoyed working in this way. We also worked on some vocabulary lists together."
"The student and I began by going over a number of logic games that she has struggled with in her practice. I went over each of the games with her in a detailed fashion illustrating how to solve the game. We went through each of the questions and discussed. At the end of the session, we worked through a practice logical reasoning section. She is doing better with her pacing but still struggling with accuracy towards the end of the passage. We went over each of the questions she missed in a detailed fashion, discussing how she can arrive at the correct answer using the strategies for this section."
"The student and I first worked on a logic game. The game was somewhat difficult for him at first, but once I showed him the proper setup he was able to get to the correct answers fairly fast. We also worked on apparent paradox questions and methods of reasoning. He had developed a somewhat flawed methodology for these questions, but once I showed him a different way he caught on fast. Next session we will continue with type 4 questions and move on to some additional reading comprehension."
"The student and I focused on the logical reasoning section of the exam. I also briefly went over my approach to the reading comprehension section and general timing for the test. She did not always know how to approach the problems, so I went through my approaches in detail. I highlighted the importance of skipping the confusing questions for each section so she would get to all of the easier ones. I suggested that she work through another section so she would have more specific questions to go over."
"The student and I further reviewed logical reasoning and saw some really good progress. There were no problems whatsoever on the types of questions where she said she was confident. In fact, she was able to get through those so quickly that we discussed strategizing for the entire section by picking out the easier questions first to save her time and reduce anxiety as she approaches the more difficult ones. She still generally seems to be less confident in how she'll do on the actual test compared to how she is doing in practice, but I continue to assure her that everyone feels that way. We continue to see great progress on logic games and will continue to work on the timing aspect. She needs to be as thorough as possible in mapping out her logic games and ensure she doesn't miss any key inferences. But she is gaining confidence, and that should help tremendously for her confidence as she works through the actual exam."
