Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we scored two more practice sections- Math and Science. Both scores improved over the last test, especially the Math. Even more encouraging was that her highest Math subscore was geometry/trig, which has been where she's previously struggled most. Completing the practice tests has made her recognize that the Math questions are very similar from test to test, especially when it comes to geometry. She seemed very confident about this practice test."
"Finished practice test covering some concepts in algebra II and an extensive amount in geometry. Student struggled with perimeter and setting up ratios. Started new practice test, and already performing much better after getting used to the test format and style. Discussed types of questions that are common on the exam and how to approach them."
"Today we covered her practice essay and moved on to tackle math. In the essay, I found that the general flow of the essay was quite good. I focused on developing the ideas and focusing on connecting the ideas to the topic sentences. In addition, we talked about how to improve the timing of the essay and vary the word choice. We next moved into the math section and focused on arithmetic. Throughout the various topics and related practice problems we covered, we focused on reading the question carefully and planning the steps forward to solving it. For homework I assigned another practice essay and math homework from the SAT review book."
