Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on reading poems for comprehension, reviewed the math section and discussed weighted averages and slope intercept form."
"The student has improved in the logical elimination of erroneous answers in the vocabulary section. I have assigned a number of vocab words for him to memorize."
"During this session, the student and I focused on Math and verbal. In our Math practice, we honed in on some geometry concepts that the student struggled with on the diagnostic exam, specifically perimeter and area (rectangles and triangles). We practiced those concepts, and then moved on to more general Math practice from practice problems. We also worked on vocabulary. The student and I went over her vocabulary words from last week, and we picked new ones for this week. We practiced many analogies and synonym problems. On the analogies, she and I talked through the different kinds of analogies that often appear on tests, and we practiced identifying what type of analogy problems presented. We also used a version of sentence frames -- identifying the connection between the words, and then using that connection to eliminate answer choices. That method worked well for her, so we will continue to practice with it. The student needs to work on reading through all the answer choices before selecting her answer. Next week, the student and I will continue to work on helping her slow down, and we will continue to practice analogies. This week, her homework is to study her new vocabulary words."
