Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over various sections of practice placement exam. By the end of the session, the student was able to answer the questions correctly."
"The student and I worked on pre-algebra skills today, including numbers and operations, laws of arithmetic, fractions, ratios, and percentages. As we went through the problems, I saw her improving. I think it would be helpful if she wrote more notes down instead of doing everything in her head."
"Since the student was scheduled to take the PSAT today, October 16th, we opted to meet yesterday evening instead of our usual meeting time. Yesterday, we focused solely on the Mathematics section of the SAT, since that is the section on which she feels she needs the most immediate assistance. Working from the SAT prep book, practice test number 1, I was pleased to see that she retained much of what we went over in our last session. It was satisfying to see her implement strategies and shortcuts of which she was unaware a mere week ago. We did discover, however, that word problems are a real trouble spot for her. She has difficulty translating written explanations into the algebraic expressions needed to solve certain questions, so we will definitely be focusing on those types of problems next week."
