Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the day doing 8 science passages. The student was timed each time and was able to bring his time down considerably by the end. He still aims to finish a bit faster. We were able to look at strategies such as continuing lines on graphs and employing a word-search style approach to certain questions. He seems to do better when he is able to read and process the information first. For next time, he is going to do some English and math questions, so we can look more closely at what those sections have to offer."
"Today, we went over writing and math practice tests I had the student do for homework. He did extremely well on the writing section, only getting a couple wrong. I left him with another math and writing section, as well as an essay that I will look over next time to give him tips on."
"Excellent student - involved, responsive, inquisitive. We started by targeting the areas on her tests where she was using up the most time (some reading passage questions) and areas where she scored the lowest (fill in the blanks). I've assigned her some additional practice tests to take before Friday, and we'll review those and start focusing on grammar corrections and the writing test on Friday."
