Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we went over practice sections that the student completed since our last meeting. On the verbal section (46/60), she continued to do well on most question types. The first half of the section was nearly perfect. She couldn't recall whether timing was an issue but admitted she had trouble maintaining focus through the entire time. She should continue to practice with a timer, noting whether she feels rushed. The more practice she gets, the more capable she will be to gauge her progress mid-test. On the quantitative section (32/50), she was nearly perfect on series questions from her first pass through. She had a little difficulty with certain percentage questions, so we practiced different ways of solving and estimating. We will review later this week. She should continue to practice on a timer to get more confidence in efficiently using the strategies. We finished by going over the vocab portion of the reading section, on which she did an excellent job (19/22). She applied the appropriate strategies to use context clues and identify root words. Excellent work! We will go over her math and language sections during our next meeting."

"I utilized a game board to quiz the students on their vocabulary words in an interactive way. Synonyms, antonyms and definitions were covered as well as various math fields and language skills problems. We concluded the session with a testing of geometry and graphing questions which will be covered in depth at the beginning of next session."
