Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I reviewed the results of the verbal diagnostic 3 with the student. We reviewed his results in math and quantitative, especially the formulas for finding area and surface area. I am going to send him some sample writing topics. He is going to retake the diagnostics in each area and the new level diagnostics and time himself with the goal of getting in the 90+ percentile the first time."
"We specifically covered verbal questions that prepared the student for his ISEE next week during the first half of the session. The second half of the session was dedicated to reading comprehension, because I still feel that this is his weakest area. During the session, we read the passages and talked through the questions together. This helped him stay more interested in the reading comprehension questions. I explained to him that on the test, he must read the passages thoroughly in order to answer the questions correctly. He promised me he would read the passages completely on the actual ISEE. He's a very smart student, and as long as he concentrates on the questions while he is taking the ISEE, he will do well. It was a pleasure working with him."
"Today we covered comparing and simplifying fractions. We also worked on converting fractions to decimals. Everything went well."
