Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I worked with the students on the Reading section. I was astounded by how similar their answer choices were. They had the same strengths and weaknesses and got almost all the same questions right and wrong. They both need to improve their vocabulary by reviewing their old vocab units from last year's English class. I also gave them time-management strategies. I stressed the importance of the questions that required them to identify a word with similar meaning to that which was included in the passage. By substituting each of the answer choices into the existing sentence and judging how it sounded, their confidence and accuracy greatly improved on those questions."
"Topics covered include math problems. Progress achieved was a better understanding of math topics including word problems, Pythagorean theorem, and harder level problems."
"We reviewed the problems the student got wrong or skipped on a practice exam. We studied triangles and parallel traversals as well as absolute value and graphing linear equations. I will prep a lesson specifically on factoring quadratic equations for next time. We will practice triangle problems and other plane geometry."
