Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session we practiced reading comprehension and sentence equivalence. We also did some essay brainstorming. We focused mostly on math, especially exponents, interest problems, and coordinate geometry."
"As usual, we began today by reviewing the student's practice essays. His Analyzing an Argument section was excellent, and we looked at specific wording issues to improve it even further. We also spent time coming up with a better body paragraph for his Analyzing an Issue essay, and we also used several sample prompts to work on brainstorming good examples in general. We then spent some time looking at more science-based critical reading questions, which he was doing a good job of answering."
"This was our initial diagnostic session. The student did a wonderful job with the mathematics on the whole. While she will need conceptual review, she has many latent skills that are readily available. We worked today on the arithmetic and algebra chapters of mathematics. I assigned both of these. I also assigned 20 sentence completion questions. She is to bring me sentences from the vocabulary that she does not know as well. We did discuss some vocabulary during this session."
