Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began this session by reviewing the vocab words that she looked up since last session. She did a great job using them in context and had a much better understanding of their use in each problem. We then worked through a math problem that she got stuck on regarding functions and algebra. She is starting to feel more comfortable with function questions but would still benefit from review. She practiced more "student produced response" math questions without any issues, and then we moved on to work through a bunch of vocab questions where she continued to practice strategies that we worked on in our last session. I took note of the words she was unfamiliar with so she could look them up later on. Finally we went through some "correcting sentences" problems, focusing on identifying clauses and voice (active versus passive). I left her with a few chapters to work through for our next session."
"Talked with the student about her goals. She ultimately wants to score a 1900 on the SAT which I think is quite doable. Went over SAT math and critical reading sections. She needs help with word problems, more advanced geometry problems, and problems involving coordinate planes. Will finish covering CR section next time."
"The students and I went through the last diagnostic test for math today. We than looked at algebraic fractions and functions problems together. Next time we will start with the writing diagnostics."
