Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over tricky math problems that she should know how to solve. We also went through ratios, percents, and geometry problems-areas that were weak on her last practice test. She greatly improved over the course of the session. Her assignments for the upcoming break are to read over Critical Reading and Writing sections in the prep book, complete the Math Tricks section, and review more Geometry. She also needs to complete her next SAT practice test. I will email her mother over break to recommend some SAT Math books to purchase if needed."
"We covered SAT Critical Reading out of both 2 test prep books. We did almost all of the practice problems out of the first test prep book. The students are to continue practice with these type of problems. We also covered the first couple of lists of word groups in vocabulary out of the other test prep book. They are to begin their vocabulary review. They did especially well on the CR practice, but might need to work on vocabulary a bit."
"I got to know student and established goals. Went over basics of SAT verbal, writing, and critical reading portions. I asked him to do 15 practice questions a day. Student is studying to take SAT in the summer, so we talked about training for a marathon and the need to train in small amounts on a regular basis. I suggested he get SAT flashcards to help with vocabulary. I had student write SAT essay, then graded it. Student finished essay within 25 minute limit, so we talked over how to proofread his essay after finishing. I assigned 1 SAT essay between now and next meeting. We talked about the upcoming semester in English and looked over one graded paper to understand his teacher's grading style."
