Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished reviewing strategies for the GRE quantitative, and then completed the content review for number properties and arithmetic. The student has a strong logical reasoning orientation and is able to quickly recollect various concepts, rules, and formulas in math. Great work today!"
"We focused entirely on the Quantitative section this time, first going through a more difficult mathematics section using the test prep software. We identified areas to work on and did extra practice on these, namely percent increase and decrease, rates/ratios, and functions."
"We focused exclusively on math skill drills, such as 3D figure work, chart and graph interpretation, and quadratic relationships. She continues to show marked improvement on her application of the skills!"
"We focused on math concepts of percentage, rate, and average - important to review as these are fundamental for many GRE problems. Read and worked through the prep book on Algebra and when to use it, plus real world Math, and I will come equipped with questions for next session. We also worked on reading comprehension - remember to map the passage; don't try to memorize or reread each time, and make sure any answer choice you select has justification in the passage. Read through the reading comp chapter for next session (it's short!)"
"We focused on the math more. We hit a couple of issues again from last session to solidify the concepts. We also progressed further in the math tutorial and have arrived at the geometry section. I gave the student a large list of equations that she will need to solve all the questions on the GRE. Progress is good!"
"We focused on the math section. There was a definite improvement compared to past sessions. The student seems to do well with word problems (which is rare), and geometry in general, though sometimes she needs to be reminded to the correct geometric formulas to use. She struggles the most with factoring and rationalizing denominators. I suggest that she do practice problems in these two areas primarily. I also suggest that she be especially careful in working through the algebra of a problem, as she tends to make minor mistakes. Working slowly often fixes this problem entirely."
