Tutoring... [#permalink] New post 31 Mar 2013, 17:18
Been studying off and on since January and pretty frequently the past 3 weeks.
My time spent studying has led me to the conclusion that I am an IDIOT... at least when it comes to the GMAT.
What GMAT Club considered Sub-600 level problems are kicking my ass. Lately it's been work/rate problems.
I've been working out of the Kaplan GMAT Premier book and the OG12.

Frankly, I'm lost and would love for someone to walk me through just a few of the concepts.

My question is, what kind of online tutoring is there and would it even help me?

A tutor provides expertise, experience, and encouragement.
They do not provide "answers," but rather assist in problem solving, in getting answers.
The challenge is to focus on assignments within the context they are assigned.

Tutors should not be expected to diagnose learning disabilities.
Diagnosis should take place outside of the tutoring process by a professional academic counselor. If a larger problem becomes apparent, referral is the best strategy.

Well I don't think I have any learning disabilities... I hope haha.

I'm going to give tutoring a shot.

I'll keep what you have written in mind and report back with how I think my first session went.

Thank you.
