Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has started to show his work without being asked during the quantitative sections, which has greatly improved his accuracy in answering questions correctly! We practiced outlining several essays, as well as going over reading comprehension and analogies. He still needs to work on utilizing the strategies we've worked on when he encounters a word he does not know."
"The student worked through 2 practice verbal sections of 60 questions each. His first SSAT landed him in the 61st percentile. We need to remove approximately 3/4 of his wrong answers in order to place him in the 90th percentile. Most of the problem is vocab related, and I have him working through a number of words he didn't know. I'm also working with him to tighten down his relationships in analogies. Using a sentence formation strategy, he seems to have improved quite a bit. We will continue to work on Wednesday."
"Today we covered some basics as to what the test entails. We decided to focus mostly on reading comprehension and vocabulary building. I talked with the student about the techniques that I tend to use for vocab and some helpful hints to use during the test for reading comp. We did some practice reading examples, and he did a great job incorporating the hints that I gave him, and ended up getting all of the answers correct."
