Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"After going over the critical reading, we then worked on the chapter about the sentence completion questions, and we went over various approaches to these sentences, such as filling in your own word before looking at the answer choices and thinking about how the blanks relate to each other. After a little practice, she really improved on her ability to do those questions, even when some of the words were unfamiliar. Then, we started talking about the essay portion of the exam and talking about the way that the graders will look at the essay and ways to prepare for the essay. For homework, I assigned a couple pages in the essay section which are focused on taking abstract terms and making concrete descriptions of those words."
"I met with the student for our first session of SAT tutoring. In this session we focused on assessing where she currently was at and seeing how she tests. We first went over some questions she had missed on the actual test last time she took it. I talked to her about the correct way to solve these problems. We then did practice in the areas that she needs the most help: math and grammar. She performed well on these sections, and her timing was excellent. Overall I found her to be an excellent student and I look forward to working with her."
"The student worked through multiple levels of SAT math problems. He performed very well on all levels. I believe he will be an able performer on the actual test, and I have suggested that we shift our focus to English on the next session, so that we can ensure he is equally well-prepared in that subject."
