Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on the ACT today. We focused on science and found a strategy that improved both her score and her comfort level with the test. Well done!"
"For Reading and English: like last week, he showed marked improvement from one passage to the next in both sections. His progress since last Monday has been really encouraging."
"During today's session we reviewed the math homework I assigned him last time. I had assigned him the middle portion of a math section to complete (30 questions). He missed about half of the questions, and we reviewed them to find out why he missed them. We discovered that he knows more math than he thinks he does. When he takes the time to solve the problem and answer exactly what the question is asking, often times he is able to solve it on his own. I also reviewed some math specific strategies. Next I timed him as he completed one reading passage. He was able to finish in time, but again he missed about half of the questions. I then went over reading strategies which I feel are most effective. I asked him to complete reading homework for next time."
