Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by reviewing the homework practice sessions I had assigned her to work over the past week. Finally, we began to consider the issue of the time limit and the effect the running clock has on taking each individual section of the exam. (In our first two sessions together, we had focused primarily on building an approach to each question, and methods of working your way towards the strongest possible answer. My intent for this session was to maintain the approaches and methods we had worked in the previous two sessions, but now to also add on a time limit.) We then worked through one critical reading section on a timer."
"Worked on reading section, solving and confirming answers using the texts themselves. Set up additional vocab study plan."
"The student and I switched gears in our session today, changing our focus to the assessment. She feels much more comfortable with the timing on the test. We went through portions of the math, reading, and writing. she does well in the reading and math. We are continuing to work on the writing questions. Next session I will bring in additional materials to help with those."
