Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked with Student 1 on writing an outline for her essay on campaign funds and we went over her spelling words. Worked with Student 2 on his math homework, and helped him find new ways to think about proportions to make the math a little easier. We also went over his science homework on ecosystems."
"The student is going to take the Reading and Verbal sections of her test again to improve her scores. We're trying to focus on the Reading as that is the section she needed the most improvement. We looked at the reading passages and talked about how to approach them, by looking at the question and then finding where that topic is talked about. We also worked on some strategies for figuring out the answers to questions. Her reading comprehension is strong and she was often able to pinpoint the information she needed."
"We discussed the practice essay he wrote the night before, making grammatical and substantive corrections. We proceeded to review the test booklet, and reviewed Reading Comprehension questions involving long and short passages."
"Had a general discussion on writing argument essays including: looked over a test from a previous year and discussed the different questions, introducing him to the Jane Schaffer writing model and doing an example topic essay. I left him with an assignment to write an argument paper which we will then go over and review for details of his writing style and essay building."
"Today we went over her homework assignment. Her homework was on factoring monomials from expressions and finding zeros. She didn't struggle with her assignment. We also went over a few problems from her last test. There was a simplifying exponents problem that she was confused about, but she understood it after we went over it."
"We continued working on logical reasoning today. The student is still working on identifying question types and how to find exactly what the question is asking, but he showed a remarkable level of improvement towards the end of our session today when he started working with question types that he had seen before. Before we meet again in a few days, I told him to complete the rest of the logical reasoning sections on the test that we were working on and to start on a new test which I had given him. He is catching on very quickly, and with practice he should do just fine on the LSAT."
