Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We used this session to primarily practice reading comprehension and vocabulary skills (although we did do some math at the end). I enjoyed working with him in this meeting because he remained focused and enthusiastic with regards to the material. A principle study skill we used dealt with rewording complicated sentences in order to decipher underlying meaning. For extra practice, I recommended that he review a list of ISEE vocabulary words in conjunction with completing some online practice tests. I think that his vocabulary has expanded noticeably since the first meeting."
"We covered the distributive law; word problems with mode, median, and mean; exponents; similar triangles and graphing on the number line; and calculating percentages. We also talked about strategies: identifying the question and then the relevant data; slowing down and skipping questions on topics not yet learned."
"Today I administered a practice test for the student. He finished all the sections very quickly. Tomorrow when I see him for our final session, I will go over the things that he missed and touch on some last little fundamentals to be sure he is ready for the test this coming week."
