Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed another test in depth, covering all key facts to know, and continued on with our presidential study prep."
"The student and I had an excellent first session together. We began by talking about her experience with the SAT and what she finds easiest and hardest about it. We also discussed her goals for the exam and for college admissions. Next, we talked about the structure and format of the exam and considered the best strategy for guessing. After this, we began discussing the basics of the math section. We will continue with this next week after she has purchased the SAT guide and reviewed the different content areas tested on the exam. Finally, we began working on the critical reading section, focusing on sentence completion problems. She learned a new strategy for approaching sentence completion problems and eliminating incorrect answers choices, and she did a fantastic job with this. In our next session, we will discuss her homework and begin working on the math section. For homework, she will purchase the SAT guide and look through chapters 15-18, noting any concepts that she is not 100% comfortable with. In addition, she will practice applying the sentence completion strategy she learned by completing practice problems on her own, either on the website or in a test prep book."
"We went over SAT test prep techniques and also walked through practice tests on an SAT website. The student will prepare for the full 90-question practice test in next week's session."
