"We went over reading again using the same strategies. Most of the time we spent determining what she needs to go over for the following week and what we should focus on for her last lesson before the test."
"We looked at several problems that the student has done since the last session. She mostly had questions about the more difficult and challenging problems, which demonstrates a lot of improvement; when we first met the student was having trouble with a lot of easy/medium-difficulty questions."
