Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I looked over the student's essay outline and gave her some tips on how to simplify it to cut down on time. We spent a good amount of time doing math practice problems. We did a few reading passages as well- I gave her some strategies on how to find and mark the important information to prepare for the questions. We began making a reference sheet with test strategies and math formulas that we will continue to add to throughout our sessions. I asked the student to do one more reading passage on her own and some problems from a math workbook I got for her before our next session."
"The student and I finished the reading and science sections today from his practice test, and he definitely improved on his previous scores. His massive improvement needs to be taken with a grain of salt because he wasn't being timed, but his knowledge of the content has clearly improved and I think he can do well on the test when the time comes (in less than a month!)."
"Met with the student for the first time. I discussed her old test scores and what she wants to get out of the tutoring sessions with her. After that we talked about some general test taking strategies and looked at some parts of the tests. I plan to start some more in-depth work with her on soon."
