Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we covered more math practice problems and reviewed old concepts. Both students then took practice tests with similar types of problems to the ones we had worked on together, under the pressure of time. They have been good at remembering old concepts. I asked them to review their multiplication tables to get better with time."
"We went over strategies for sentence completion, reading comp, and math and well as essay writing, outlining (example of good essays with intro/conclusion, individual main ideas with supporting examples/details in each paragraph), and vocab. Homework includes strategy workouts (workbook for ISEE), vocab, practice test, and worksheets for math."
"Today the student finished the second math section from her practice exam. There was no doubt she was ready to go because she was working very hard and fast. She also worked on all the practice material I had given her, and her great attitude was reflected by her performance. Next we moved on to the reading section. We are working on testing strategies as well as things she can do to better understand passages. I assigned a timed writing prompt."
