"The student and I spent most of this session reviewing exponents, roots, and fractions in expressions and equations. We also reviewed went over grammar, particularly subject-verb and other types of agreement."
"The student and I worked on math. She'll have a lot to conquer before the test, but I'm confident that we'll manage it well. We also began working on her college essay, and will continue on it later."
"Excellent session - the student had made some good progress on prepositions and a few other grammar areas we worked on. We identified comma use as our next target, and discussed a few ways to grab some extra points on the essay."
"The student and I had a good session today. I gave him a set of techniques to approach sentence completions as well as Critical Reading Passages. CR passages do pose more of a challenge for him, but he is doing well."
"The student surpassed the score he was hoping for on the exam. He would like to take the exam to see if he can skip the summer session. We covered 50 new vocabulary words, sentence completion, and reading passages in this session."
"We practiced several writing passages, focusing on strong thesis statements and using descriptive examples. The student's test date is coming up in a few weeks, so we talked about setting a study schedule once finals ended."
"The student is taking an assessment test. We went over some math concepts that will be on both tests and assigned practice problems for next time."
"The student and I covered the numbers and operations, algebra and functions, and geometry and measurement. He did well in every category we covered."
"We covered ACT Trigonometry in-depth today, which is a relatively new subject for the student. Specifically, we spent time on trigonometric identities, inverse trig functions, and a deeper understanding of the unit circle and graphing trig functions."
"We continued doing SAT math diag exam 3. We covered a number of percentage problems in depth. We then moved on to more critical reading questions (passages, grammar, and vocab)."
"Today, we reviewed previous vocabulary and I had the student learn ten new words. We also reviewed the geometry and measurements section for math. There were examples we worked through together and concepts we reinforced."
