Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent most of our time using online materials. We worked on tests together and then worked on timing. We spent a good amount of our session working on quantitative reasoning--something the student will need to spend adequate time on in order to be prepared for the test. His vocabulary is shaping up really nicely. I am pleased with his progress. I left him with some vocabulary to learn and some practice tests to take for the next session."
"For this session, we began work on a second practice exam in preparation for the ISEE middle level test. Entering into the meeting, I was expecting the student to excel in math and have some trouble in reading, but he did much better across the board. Considering the fact that we met after school, I was surprised by his ability to stay focused and interested throughout the session. We were productive overall. Since this was our second to last meeting, I repeated many of the strategies I had introduced over the past several weeks. This primarily included ways to manage questions that do not have an obvious answer. For extra practice, I recommended finishing the practice test we had begun. As previously mentioned, I believe that his recent performance indicates that he has progressed significantly over the past few months."
"Today's session included a writing assignment, sentence completion, and word problems. It is evident that the student is stronger in the quantitative portions of the test, and needs to practice the verbal portions of the test. I have given instruction to work on his vocabulary throughout the week."
