Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student worked on timed portions of each section of a practice test. She did well on time and had no trouble with most of the reading passages. Vocabulary and analogies are something we are going to take more time on. She then worked the entire two math sections, going over tougher concepts with follow up questions. I gave her guidelines for the format and expectations of the essay. I am suggesting that she focus on math questions and vocabulary practice for homework."
"Last night the student and I did a lot of work on the verbal and reading portions of the test. We spent a lot of time going over strategies, and I think that two of the strategies were particularly helpful: first, we went over the possibility of eliminating answers on the multiple-choice vocabulary portion of the test if she thinks that two of the answer choices are synonyms. Second, and more importantly, I emphasized to her that when she does the analogy portion of the test, she should always identify the parts of speech in the analogy, because the correct answer will have matching parts of speech. This will be an effective way of eliminating multiple wrong answers. She seemed very encouraged by this piece of advice."
"I am glad I have the opportunity to tutor the student. She does need a bit more help with vocabulary but she is a very quick learner. I assigned her math homework and I hope that we can go over it the next session. Thank you!"
