Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over her personal statement draft by each section, highlighting the strongest parts. The essay was already well underway and developed. We paired the session by also going through the application guidelines, to make sure the essay meet the requirements and main questions. We also covered her references for the application, including talking points for her professional references. I am sharing with her some resources to reference as she redrafts the essay. She will send me a next version of the essay and we will go through it together early next week."
"The student is an extremely bright girl and a very voracious reader! We first reviewed her current reading exercises, discussing her new vocabulary words. After going over the worksheets for her current set, we discussed and settled upon a new learning method focused on definitions first, then context clues practice; I believe this method will help her learn new vocabulary much more easily. We also discussed books she is currently reading, and I provided several recommendations to expand her collection and get her reading even more advanced books. Finally, I gave her a creative writing assignment to evaluate her current writing level."
"The student wrote a good short essay--he is both a better and more confident writer. We went over SAT grammar ("writing"), where he will need to review and practice before he gets up to the level of his reading skills but is still well above average for his grade. He will continue to write short essays every week."
