Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered math and writing today. The first hour focused on math, particularly the free response section. The student excels at geometry, particularly angles, and probability/statistics. He did fairly well on this section. In writing, we focused on identifying the error. We spent the first part of the hour labeling the parts of speech in sentences to help identify where simple grammar mistakes might be hiding. The student found this exercise helpful."
"I had my first session with this student on 1/12. We began by getting to know each other and setting goals for the PSAT. Although he is a freshman, he has already taken a practice version of the PSAT at his school. His scores and percentile were very high; I feel confident he will be a National Merit Scholar during his junior year. We spent the majority of the session reviewing his practice PSAT and reviewing particularly challenging problems. For homework, he will review the rest of the test and rework any problems as needed. He will also study 10 vocabulary words that we gathered from the test."
"The student did some practice PSAT Math and Writing work today, scoring more than above average on each. We will continue working on her timing and pacing herself."
