Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on college entrance exam material, focusing on the reading and math portions, which his family says would be the most important. He says he has taken two or more prep exams in the past. I walked him through several practice problems to gauge his level. He seems to have good reasoning capability on the reading portions. He stayed focused and determined."
"The student and I continued reviewing pertinent topics for the final. We spent a good amount of time on cell signaling and processing, as well as other subjects."
"Today, we worked on primarily reading with some discussion of the writing section to complement the almost pure math coverage of the last session. We went through sentence completion, going through some vocabulary and ensuring solid strategies for approaching problems and looking for recognition in unknown words using known words (by looking for similarity between roots of words). We then went into passage reading where we reviewed methods for analyzing text and getting those answers. We focused on taking the author's perspective in order to draw conclusions about similar topics from different point of views (i.e. passage comparison questions). We finished by going over a writing section in preparation for the practice (timed) test she will be taking between our next session. We went over essay formatting, introductions, counterarguments, etc."
