Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student was very attentive and worked really hard. I started by quizzing her on some important equations and tricks for the test, which she got all correct. Then I had her do a timed practice section. She finished it with a few minutes to spare. We talked about stress and not worrying, and slowing down to read and double check answers. When we went through the questions together. We will continue to work on her slowing down."
"We went through the reading diagnostic exam 1 questions 1-26 from the website. The student had done the questions in advance, and she was very strong in her comprehension of passages, even when they involved subjects and vocab with which she was unfamiliar. We read each passage together, and she would summarize each paragraph before we proceeded to the questions. In addition to summaries, we went over the following test prep strategies: circling key names in the passage, crossing out wrong answer choices, and circling the word "except" in a question. She has begun a vocabulary list to continue adding to and studying throughout her test prep. In reviewing her answers, she was able to identify the correct answers after reading the passages slowly and identifying the main ideas. Before the next session, she will complete a quantitative reasoning diagnostic exam."
"Today the student learned about a system of equations for the first time, as well as Venn diagram sets. The session went well and we will continue to work on timing."
