Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Gave the student a vocab quiz; she scored 10/18. Planned to re-test on these words in the future. Identified ~20 new words for the next quiz. Assigned her practice book questions to work on. We will continue to work on vocab each session."
"First meeting. Covered general strategy & worked parts of a practice test as diagnostic. The student needs most help with reading comprehension & understanding, along with vocabulary. These are the areas on which will focus in the coming weeks."
"We finished the end of Practice Test 1; I timed the student in the three short sections (one each of math, verbal, and writing). I can see we'll need to discuss guessing strategy, because she seems to guess at certain questions but know the correct answer once she's not rushing through. That is one area I will make note to focus on in coming sessions. Time isn't an issue for her, but she gets anxious when I call out times, which I think contributes to making slight errors. This will be alleviated with practice in real world circumstances, which she will be doing. She's going to try to find her score report for next week, so I can see what specific areas I should focus on."
