Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered several Math topics as well as specific problems. Also reviewed writing and practiced related grammar/mechanics."
"The student had done two reading passages on his own and managed to complete both in less than 9 minutes. On the prose fiction passage he missed four questions, but on the humanities passage he didn't miss any. We went through the prose fiction questions carefully, talking about how he needs to be careful to look at the details before circling an answer, as many of his missed answers could be fixed if he spent a little bit of extra time confirming the answer. He then did another passage but missed questions for the same reasons. We went through the missed questions and discussed strategy some more. He is to complete another three reading passages on his own for next time, trying to pay more attention to details. If this makes him slower, that's fine for the time being while we try to improve his accuracy. We also covered the Science section, discussing strategy of how to approach passages much the same way as the Reading, by pinpointing what information the question asks about and then finding it in the chart or graph. He seemed to have a good grasp on this and was able to find information and abbreviations on charts quickly. He will be doing some Science on his own to make sure he does grasp what he talked about for next time."
"Reviewed previous test scores from last year, set up vocabulary study plan. Started work on reading and math sections with test taking strategies."
