Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"With the student, worked through short passages. We worked through geometry and other PSAT math problems. Assigned sections for both."
"The student and I had our final session of tutoring. We spent most of the session going over a level 2 practice test I had assigned for homework. He did very well, scoring a 680 out of 800. However he skipped 10 questions, and had he gotten two more right he would have scored above 700. We went over the questions he missed and the ones he skipped, and spent a lot of time focusing on the quickest way to get to the answer. Finally, at the end of the session we talked about test taking strategy. I focused on getting into the right mindset before taking the test. At the end of the session we said our goodbyes and I wished him luck on the test."
"The student hasn't been pushed and wants the challenge. He's gotten away with doing the bare minimum, but it's definitely affected the way he understands the larger picture, especially with math. He can work out many problems in his own way but has pretty large gaps in his knowledge, so we started piecing together and filling in his math skills. We touched on some English as well, where more often than not any mistakes are caused by making the problem more complicated than it really is. He has a full exam to complete before we can meet next, and I'm truly looking forward to seeing what he can accomplish when he puts his mind to it."
