Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we did reading and writing questions. We also worked on essay writing. Finally, I gave the student some online resources for learning vocabulary words. We scheduled our next session for next Saturday."
"The student and I worked more on reading comprehension, and then played a game of her design in which we constructed sample sentences with errors and challenged one another to correct the error! Fun!"
"Today we went over her math homework from last time and began to cover basic concepts. We went over test taking strategies and discussed the value in guessing. Then, we went over sentence completion strategies."
"We did challenging practice problems to touch on all areas for the math SAT - covering problems related to exponent rules. We spent the last 20 minutes deriving and generalizing these rules. We will revisit this next week for security."
"Today, the student and I reviewed his most recent practice test and talked about how he can continue to prepare in his final week before the exam. For homework, she will take another timed full-length practice test."
"Today we drilled for the math section, discussing lines of symmetry of parabolas, questions involving polygons inscribed in other polygons, and sequences. I sent several pdf tests as extra practice."
"The student and I spent the majority of this session on vocab questions and strategy. She seems a lot more confident than in previous sessions. We will probably meet one more time before her SAT this weekend."
"This was a good session, and the student continues to perform excellently on critical reading sections. We are entering the final push before the SAT, so we will focus more on some strategies than content."
"We went over vocab from the previous week and addressed a tricky math question from last week. We practiced more math and verbal sections, and I introduced her to a website with more practice questions."
"Went over practice test one, writing diagnostic number 5, and parts of math diagnostic 1. We will review adding and subtracting fractions using common denominators at the beginning of the next session."
"In today's session we covered vocabulary and critical reading skills. We did a practice test sections on word replacement, short passages and long passages. The student did a fantastic job on the vocabulary and word replacement."
"We covered writing and math portions of the SAT, focusing on a wide variety of areas to get a sense of where the student is at. For next time, the student has completed a reading portion for us to go over together."
