Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed algebra for the GRE, including all relevant formulas and concepts. We then reviewed questions emblematic of how algebra will be tested on the GRE. The student has a strong foundation and should work to stay focused on the goal -- which is to get questions correct! We'll pick up with a few remaining concepts (combinations, permutations, and data interpretation) before turning to geometry."
"We reviewed the student's answers to the chapter 11 drill. Then we reviewed the material on real world math in chapter 12. For homework, she will complete the real world math drill and read through the materials on chapter 13 geometry. She is getting ready to schedule her GRE for late September."
"We reviewed the student's diagnostic test. She was a very top student in the way she asks questions and also comes to the session with questions! I emphasized to her the importance of coming to the session having already prepared on her own and identified the problems she needs to work on. We finished the Diagnostic test, and she will be using a prep book to guide her practice."
"We reviewed the student's diagnostic today. We focused primarily on reviewing the math section. She is going to review some of the subjects that have been harder to recall (slope, factoring, circles), so that the formulas come more easily to her when she is taking a test. For homework, she is going to redo the third math section of her diagnostic test, taking the time to set up her paper and avoid mistakes by writing out her work. She is also going to review the vocabulary from the two verbal sections. She is stronger at reading comprehension, so she is going to focus more on vocabulary over the next few weeks (so she has more time to build up her vocabulary skills)."
"We reviewed the student's practice exam and she needs to focus on arithmetic, algebra, and especially on geometry. We also reviewed basic concepts and went through practice questions for fractions, square roots, exponents, ratios and percentages."
"We reviewed weighted averages, normal distribution, and logical inference questions. These were just about the last math subjects we hadn't gone over in detail explicitly, and they didn't seem to be overly difficult."
