Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered Test 5 today, focusing on the passages that were the most difficult. Problematic issues during the exam were perhaps focusing too much on details on the initial passage read-through and missing certain passage quotes for detail based questions. Overall passage comprehension wasn't that big an issue this time. We will cover Tests 6 and 7 next time."
"The student and I went over the last practice test I issued to the student, and worked on some different inference-type problems in the practice questions of the online platform and on another practice exam. The student and I also discussed different methods and tips of applying to medical school."
"We covered the approach to the MCAT. He began to grasp a new way to approach the questions. I am pleased with the student & his "teachability.""
"We went over homework questions and did more passages during this session. The student got a 10 on one homework assignment, which is progress."
"We covered Strengthen/Weaken Questions and Detail questions. Did practice with the prep materials. Also started working on doing multiple passages at a time. The student will continue to do practice on her own."
"The entire session was devoted to the Analytical Essay. We worked our way down a list I'd prepared of past prompts organized by topic/theme. We discussed which position to take and what sorts of examples from history, science, literature, and current events could support the position. We then wrote down some "template" sentences for opening and concluding essays of various types."
