Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I reviewed concepts from her test including: distributive property, FOIL, factoring, inequalities, absolute value, systems of equations (substitution, elimination, graphing), difference of two perfect squares, division of polynomials, and exponents. It was good practice and we'll continue to review these concepts until she's comfortable enough to start working on increased speed for the SAT."
"Today we worked mostly on the reading section, focusing on passage-based questions, and did a little bit of math. The student showed tremendous improvement on the passage-based questions, and continues to do very well in math. We're going to do a lot of function math problems next week."
"The student and I went over reading comprehension and math today. We worked a lot on how to decipher what the question is asking. We are working with how to translate word problems into equations and keep our variables consistent. With reading, we worked on how to find the answers directly in the passage and avoid inferencing unnecessarily."
