Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did a practice essay and went through 72 of the top 500 vocab words. We also, reviewed a section of the SAT practice on reading passages. He is improving immensely and is retaining the information."
"Today was our first session. The student and I began our session by discussing the placement exam test. We talked about the structure of the test, parts of the test, format, and what he thinks will be the most difficult. He told me the schools he is looking at. He told me that he has been utilizing the online practice tests. During this session I covered reading comprehension and vocabulary. I went to the website and went to the comprehension section. We focused on critical comprehension--finding the purpose/ intention of paragraphs. Some of the passages we had to read were pretty long, so we went over how to skim a paragraph, and pick out main points. Next, we worked on the meaning of words in the context they were used in the paragraph. Third, we covered how paragraphs are written, in particular the coherence of a paragraph. Finally, we finished up by going over vocabulary flashcards. The student did great! Looking forward to next week."
"We worked today on a lot of reading and vocab, but we also did some math practice with circles. The student did extremely well on her homework! I asked her to complete a few sections for next time."
