Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the two practice sections that the student took yesterday during the first portion of the session. In the math section, we looked in particular at percentages and finding the median and mean. In the reading section, he practiced going back through the passage to find evidence for his answer choices. Again, his comprehension is strong, but vocabulary is difficult. For the second half of the session, he took a timed reading and a timed math exam. On the reading exam, he ran out of time with five questions left. I recommended that in the future, he skip ahead to questions that reference specific line numbers in order to answer more questions."
"The student and I discussed the upcoming SAT, her PSAT scores, and her strengths and weaknesses. She mentioned that she struggled with the writing section, so we reviewed helpful hints for essay writing, and she completed a practice writing section. We also reviewed grid in responses for the math section and completed some examples."
"We did more questions from the writing section today. The student gets the easy-medium questions very easily. I had him write down the main things the SAT tests for on the writing section (there, their, they're, etc.) so he will know those now for Saturday."
