Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today focused on inference questions. The student is most challenged by passages that require holistic understanding of the passage combined with application of logic, and it doesn't help that the questions are worded in convoluted ways. She has made much progress, though, particularly in her answering technique."
"Today, we focused on Reading comprehension, with some additional vocabulary work at the end of the session. The student is finding a significant difference in the more concrete passages, which he's able to finish fairly quickly and accurately, and the more abstract and philosophical passages, which are still posing challenges. He is planning to do all the other verbal work before these complex readings, so that he knows exactly how much time he has left for these questions."
"We worked most of today's session on "verbal logic" questions, and just a few math problems at the end. The student says he feels pretty good about where he's gotten with the Quantitative work, so he wants to do some intensive work on vocab and English going forward. (He originally thought he would want to work entirely on math but he's decided some help on the verbal subjects would also be helpful.)"
