Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I worked with Student 1 on the verbal portion of the test. He did not get to take the diagnostic last week, but he will take it before we meet again. I worked with Student 2 on the areas of concern on the math diagnostic, specifically predicting outcomes, finding answers from a chart, and finding the distance between lines. We also worked on verbal questions. He needs to retake the diagnostic before we meet again, as well as the diagnostics for reading, verbal, and quantitative."
"We worked on the following: -Multiplying and dividing positive and negative integers -Comparing fractions with unlike denominators -Using a pictorial model to write numbers as fractions and decimals (having tenths or hundredths as a denominator)"
"At our first session today, I walked the student through some of the diagnostic tests provided through a website. While the student's family had expressed concern about his performance on the verbal sections of the test, he in fact scored quite strongly and shows incredibly discerning problem-solving skills. He is equally adept at math, as I saw from his responses to a QR diagnostic test. I have few concerns going forward regarding his ISEE performance; as long as we can complete some more practice and he picks up some helpful test-specific strategies, he is sure to ace the exam."
