Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a lot of homework for her upcoming exams, so we spent an hour reviewing her mathematics review, which consisted largely of first-semester Algebra I topics (e.g., simplifying expressions and solving basic equations)."
"The student and I started with some work on the verbal section. She said she loved to read and I can tell she has a big vocabulary, but I was shocked by how well she did. The only questions she got wrong were on some very advanced synonyms that are well above her grade level. She did excellent on the sentence completions and the reading comprehension sections. I was very impressed with her abilities today. For the last half hour we switched to math and worked through some problems that were similar to the ones she answered on the diagnostic exam."
"Today we started dissecting the difficult test that I gave the student last week. I plan on working with this test for the next few sessions. It has a great variety of practice involved, and I want to show her a few tricks and tips for answering the questions. We went through the first 5 passages, and got a long list of vocabulary to work on from those passages. We spent the last 45 minutes of our session working on vocab building, and she did great with thinking of relevant example sentences. We'll continue with the process tomorrow, and I will assign her homework then."
