Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked on verbal section with emphasis on word deconstruction and attack skills. Reviewed word roots and common testing vocabulary. Great work!"
"The student worked on math review and critical reading techniques. He did very well. We will discuss analogies next session which will be our final before the exam."
"Today the student and I went over her essay section. She is a great writer, and her essay was very concise, captivating, and vivid. She had a few grammatical errors (comma splices, sentence fragments, etc.), but we went over each of these and I explained to her why they were incorrect. I'm very confident that she will do well on the essay section, so we will not be drilling that section any more. For the rest of the session, we focused on math. There were some very difficult questions, but we were able to solve them. Sometimes we had to look at the answer and work backward, but this always allowed us to understand how to solve the problem in the first place. We discussed how to break down cleverly worded problems to understand how to solve it. She is very good at math, and I have confidence that once we have tackled a problem and solved it that she will be able to solve all similar problems in the future. Next time, we will finish the math section, go over the one that she did on her own, and, if we have time, start working on the reading section."
