ASVAB

I am currently tutoring an ASVAB test-taker, specifically in the subject areas that best prepare for arithmetic reasoning, logic, and knowledge, in general science, as well as in English paragraph comprehension and vocabulary. I am focusing on getting my current student to understand the relationship between what is being asked of her in several of the practice word problems we've been working on in the mathematics sections of her practice book and how to translate the words into mathematical operations and formulas for purposes of problem solving. I have been successful with this approach with many of my former tutoring students, many of which have passed the exam after completing tutoring lessons with me, including 2 more students in 2015. I have high hopes for my current student, who will be taking the ASVAB exam in March, 2016.
