Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

GMAT Tutoring review by Kelly in Lakewood, CA
During our first session, the student and I spent a bit of time discussing her strengths, weaknesses, concerns, goals, and timeline for the exam. We then went over a practice set she did before our first meeting. Our plan is to assign the student homework to keep her on track, and to get her to do as many practice problems as possible before her test. She has a few weak areas (e.g. probability, word problems, rate questions), but could use a little bit of assistance across the board. To address this, along with some test-taking efficiency issues, the plan is to expose her to as many different types of questions as possible. I gave her one and a half practice sets along with a worksheet on algebra/word problems to complete before our next session on Saturday.

GMAT Tutoring review by Stephen in Lakewood, CA
The student and I finished the reading section of the GRE today. We went over the main types of critical reasoning questions (strengthen/weaken, inference, and resolving a dilemma). I told her that for all of these the most important thing is to recognize the author's conclusion and the premise behind that conclusion. We also went over kinds of answer choices that can always be eliminated for each question type. After that, she worked on a question bank with these question types. They were challenging but she worked deliberately and got the majority of the questions correct. We then did a final review of all the reading questions. I reminded her that questions can be broken down into information retrieval questions and reasoning questions, but for all of them understanding the author's purpose and main idea and using process of elimination is critical. We spent the rest of the lesson working on geometry. We spent a lot of time on triangle properties, as this is the most commonly tested shape. The student should also know how to use the Pythagorean theorem and how to find the sides of special right triangles. We spent a bit less time going over the properties and formulas for quadrilaterals and circles. I put more emphasis on mixed shapes problems, as these come up quite often on the GRE. I told her that the general strategy for these is to find the area of the bigger shape and subtract the area of the smaller shape to find the area inside the bigger but outside of the smaller shape. She should begin these problems by considering the shapes she has to use. She should also be aware that these problems will often require her to draw more lines, usually from one side or the center to where these shapes meet. That way she can transfer information about one of the shapes to the one she needs to find. We talked about how to use ballparking for these problems to. I advised her to think about these problems as quantitative comparison problems while doing ballparking, that she should find a value the answer is definitely bigger (or smaller) than, then see if the answer choices agree. Finally we talked about finding volume and surface area. For volume she should find the area of whatever shape the base is, then multiply that area by the height. For surface area the key is determining how many sides there are in the prism. Then she simply needs to add the areas for each side. We did a quick review of the most common properties and formulas at the end of the lesson and then wrapped up. I gave her a full Verbal section to do for homework.
