Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we began by reviewing the answers and explanations for all the questions the student had missed in the Reading and Science sections of the practice test he took during our last session. Then we moved on to begin discussing strategies for the reading section. We first identified the different types of questions that are generally asked in each section, then discussed implementing specific strategies such as pacing yourself on the sections, process of elimination, finding support in the passage, and using context clues for difficult vocabulary. He then took a shortened practice reading test, and using the techniques we discussed, scored an 18/20. We then spent the remainder of our session beginning to cover strategies for the math section, and looking at some sample math questions to see how those strategies can be applied. We will pick up next time with strategies for difficult math problems."
"We focused on solving math questions (such as word problems, ratios, and fractions that have variables). We also discussed English questions."
