Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For our last session, we spent the first half working on math problems. For types of problems the student had not yet learned, I wrote out steps and left her with notes on how to do a variety of the problems for her independent study. For the second half we did verbal work, using an online quiz system that she excelled in. She is in fine shape for her exam."
"Today, we reviewed quantitative reasoning, adding simple negatives, Venn diagrams, and strategies for reading comp (rephrasing answers to see if they match, replacing answers into sentences) and the essay (take 5 min to outline, work on writing more rich paragraphs by adding in thoughts he has that he verbalizes but doesn't write out). The homework includes a test, an essay, vocab (5 per day) and worksheets in the workbook."
"We focused on the reading comprehension portion of the ISEE lower level. This is the section that the student needs help with the most. We studied strategies on time management throughout the section and understanding passages. The student was very open minded. I left extra practice (the website to get a few more passages)."
