Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over SAT math and sentence completions. Worked on as many different things as possible to switch gears from ACT to SAT in a week."
"We first went over a practice reading section that the student had completed. While doing this, we discussed strategies for the reading session (reviewing what we had covered before) and also reviewed vocabulary. I also discussed how to study vocabulary as effectively as possible. We then looked at 2 practice math sections, and he identified how he would approach different questions. I emphasized the idea of deciding whether to do a question or to skip it (and either come back to it or leave it blank), depending on how long the question would potentially take and the difficulty of it. We also looked at hard questions that could actually be solved fairly quickly and easily by using different strategies."
"The student has gotten strong at reading comprehension questions. We worked mostly on grammar and math problems. We also practiced writing thesis statements for essay organization."
