Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's algebra problems. I had him work some timed trials on reading comp passages (which he did a very good job on) and some verbal analogies. On the verbal analogies, he did a very good job when he knew the meanings of all the words. I asked him to finish up some more algebra problems as homework for Saturday."
"Today was my first session with the student, and she is a polite, hard-working student. We discussed her previous performance on the SAT, as well as her concerns for her upcoming test. She previously scored about the same in each section, however she finds she has particular difficulty with the synonyms section. After working with her today, we decided to focus mostly on synonym questions, so I left her with a page of extra practice, as well as 5 pages of reading about prefixes and word roots."
"We covered testing format, grading, and strategies/tools to aid in answering questions effectively. A lot of time was spent on verbal section and how to use "what you know" to best answer questions. Great job!"
