Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's homework problems, which included sentence completion and math. He seems to be getting the hang of writing out all his work and using his pencil a lot in math, while in sentence completion, his vocab list is coming along nicely. We shifted focus halfway through to review how to map out passages in critical reading sections. He was assigned homework, and is encouraged to focus on accuracy rather than timing at this point."
"The student completed half of practice test in preparation for our session and said he also has started using an assessment vocab app to review vocabulary. I've asked him to complete the second half of the practice test before our next session on Friday (4 sections that should take 1.5 hours total). Once he's completed the practice test, we can compute a total score and compare it to his last practice test. We scored the sections that he did complete, and he did appear to perform slightly better than last time. He also said that he felt more knowledgeable the more test sections he completes-- another reason to emphasize more practice outside of our sessions. We briefly looked at the essay he wrote for the practice test, and overall the essay was complete and thesis-driven. For the majority of the tutoring session, we reviewed questions in math and reading practice test sections. He does seem to be improving especially on the vocab-focused reading questions."
"Continued work on assessment math. Student had strong score on homework, and we reviewed specific problems. Focused on consistency and advanced questions."
