    "[What did your tutor do well?] Was great at helping me create an attainable study plan and recommended great resources for test prep. Was always very positive and communicative - checking in with me even on days we were not scheduled to meet and always made himself an available resource. Was also very well versed in the quantitative section of the GMAT; able to explain tricky concepts in simple terms. I also appreciated his patience and ability to explain questions in a variety of ways if I was not understanding his first approach."
