Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over percentage, how to turn percentage into a decimal and how to multiply by decimal point. We also worked on ratios, and how to correctly write a ratio when given a word problem."
"I started on geometry with the student. I went over the concepts that he will have to know and pointed out that he doesn't have to worry about other concepts as it is a standardized test and the material won't change. We went over the most fundamental equations for area and perimeter, the sum of angles in various shapes and lines, and the different types of triangles. He did some practice problems on these concepts and did well. We then did some work from the student's reading comprehension book. We focused on finding specific information and making inferences. I left the student with 10 pages of reading for homework."
"We worked on the writing/essay portion of the SSAT. We continued our work from last week and much of what I said was more or less remembered. He did a good job of revising paragraphs once we discussed areas of improvement. He needed help mostly with staying true to the prompt throughout the entire essay."
