Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked through several reading sections, as well as a writing section. Her writing performance is excellent, and he vocabulary and reading comprehension continue to improve."
"Today we discussed essay writing and algebra. There was more on the to-do list, but we ended up spending a bunch of time covering polynomial factoring. We also spent a good deal of time reviewing the homework, which I think was important for us to cover. She had difficulty writing the essay that I assigned her for homework, so we discussed some possible answers to the essay. She seemed to benefit from discussing it, and I assigned the same essay again for homework between now and our next meeting on Thursday. I did not see any scores or grades, but on reviewing the algebra homework that I assigned, it seemed she had a good grasp of the algebra concepts. She has been struggling a lot with formulating appropriate responses in the essay, completing her homework, and certain algebra concepts. However, she has definitely shown improvement with the math and the writing since we began. I left her with practice as well as to complete what she didn't from our last meeting. She will need to make sure to do all of the homework in order to be most successful on the SAT. If it is too much homework, she should let me know, and I will reevaluate how much to assign. She did a good job tonight."
"Today we started going over some vocabulary. The student knows a lot of words. However, the math is a little more difficult and we will need to review concepts."
