The sessions were good. I learned a lot. Dan was very knowledgeable and was always ready with an answer no matter how difficult the questions. He was also very familiar with the types of questions that appear on the GMAT exam, and was able to teach me the quickest ways to solve problems, which helps a lot for the exam. Dan was very clear with his explanations and was happy to provide alternative explanations when I was confused.
My GMAT tutor Lucy is really friendly and really talented. She explains and breaks down the topics in a manner that will help you to complete the answer in a faster amount of time. I would tell others that if they sign up for GMAT private tutoring they should ask to study with Lucy.

The GERUND is a verbal noun, in English a word ending in ``-ing''. In fact, many grammarians of English use the term PARTICIPLE to include the gerund. Take the word ``visiting'' in the sentence: “They appreciate my visiting their GMAT study location.”
Like participles, gerunds are verbal elements which take on the role of another part of speech (in this case, that of a noun).
More common is the form ending in -ing, and this is identical with the form of the present participle. The two are distinguished only by function:
Taking this route to the GMAT test center was a mistake. (subject, taking)
Why are we going this way to the GMAT exam venue? (participle, going)
There is no preferred version, but it is important to maintain parallelism in your constructions.
If an ordinary noun can be substituted for the -ing form, then it is a gerund, e.g.,
Taking the GMAT was the fun part.
Its capture was the fun part.
The gerund retains its verbal function by taking an object:
Owning a GMAT prep book is very wise.
Less commonly, the noun function dictates the form:
The wearing of pink by GMAT students is a major fashion crime. (Wearing pink dots)
Where a noun or pronoun is used with a gerund, it should be in the possessive case:
My admonishing him will not change his mind about taking the GMAT.
It was his winning that bothered me, not my losing.
I can't stand my mother's telling my GMAT tutor embarrassing stories about me.
