Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to work on problems relating to your test, especially the quadratic formula. It is so difficult to memorize, and I was very impressed at your resolve to learn and memorize and fully understand the formula even knowing you would have a note sheet on the exam. That kind of dedication to understanding is very impressive and will bring you great success in all your classes. If we continue to work over problems, concepts and examples at the speed we did today, we should be able to finish covering all the topics of your exam tomorrow. "
"On Sunday April 24th, we met again for two hours. I split time with the students separately going over their SAT Practice Test 1 results while the others worked on vocabulary drills. Then, when we were all together we went over practice free-response math problems. Student 1's first practice test scores were as follows: 620 Reading, 490 Math, and 610 Writing."
"Today the student worked on describing what type of graph best suits different types of tables for math. He also worked in his math workbook. We also studied for spelling his spelling test on Wednesday, and we studied his social studies vocabulary. He also had to read for 20 minutes today."
"The student and I met from 9:55-11:55 am. We began by first discussing the study plan from next weekend and into the holiday break after her final exams are done. We went over one of the verbal sections that she had completes and over two math sections. Next I had her complete a Math section to monitor her accuracy and usage of time. I gave her a second chance on any problems that she had missed and together we worked on any that she was not sure how to do. We will meet again next Sunday and after that will plan to meet regularly during the weekdays to get sufficient practice for the exam."
"The student and I studied for his upcoming math tests, covering the following subjects: similarity, proofs, logical statements, construction, loci, circle theorems, nets, and symmetry. He was able to do all of the problems correctly! Well done!"
"The student and I worked on logic games questions, specifically must be true/ could be true/ cannot be true/ must be false logic games. We continued working on the strategy of diagramming the stimulus and the rules and making inferences from the rules. For the individual questions, we used the strategy of using correct previous models to eliminate incorrect answer choices and to only diagram the remaining possible answer choices for efficiency and timing reasons. She has a detailed syllabus with homework assignments for her to complete in between tutoring sessions."
