Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over the reading (15/25) and math (26/30) sections from the full placement exam he took last week. On the reading section, he had difficulty with the vocab questions. We went over the steps he should follow to use context clues and eliminate answers. We also discussed strategies for "according to the passage" questions and improving his efficiency. On the math, we went over the questions he missed and did additional practice problems over order of operations questions. We reviewed properties of arithmetic as well as operations with fractions. We finished by briefly discussing pre-writing for the essay, which we will continue working on next week. He should take any practice section from his prep book and have it with him for our next meeting."
"We continued our math review: "¢ in depth explanation of radicals, exponents, and simplifying exponents "¢ worked on word problems including consecutive integer and simple algebraic "¢ number pattern questions"
"Today the student and I focused on the verbal section of the assessment exam. We learned how to summarize paragraphs in the critical reading passages by underlining, circling, or writing notes. We also worked on understanding relationships in analogies and verbal logic skills. He has improved significantly in his verbal skills since we first started tutoring. Great job!"
