Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered a review of the essay, doing practice diagrams and doing a practice outline. We also covered more critical reading practice, working out of the SSAT book practice section. Student has positive attitude and is interested in learning the material and strategies for the test."
"We made sure to cover a lot of essential math subjects. Math seems to be one of the main areas on which the student needs to focus, and it is important that we start a foundation before we enter into the higher order math concepts. She did a series of practice problems that included working with ratios and fractions."
"Today we worked on the application essay for his boarding school. I had his first draft in hand so we worked off of that. I liked his essay concept a lot; I just thought he needed to turn the focus more on himself more than the students he describes in the essay. We worked on brainstorming things he could talk about that showed a growth or change in his thinking based on his experiences. We found ways to work his stories about students into the new paragraphs showing his growth and development. He only needs to write one entirely new paragraph talking about his future goals. I think the essay has a lot of potential; with a little bit of work and editing it will reflect his personal sacrifice and growth."
