Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did one reading test and 5 science passages. We are going to focus on reading and advanced math problems for the remainder of our sessions."
"We reviewed the math and science tests that the student completed previously. His scores are slowly improving. Then, we started working on another math test."
"The student completed 2 English passages and 2 science passages for extra practice this week. We then worked through 2 more English passages and reviewed common grammar rules. He does well with managing his time through the passages. We worked through about 10 math problems together and reviewed unit circle quadrants, LCM/GCM, and a number of other topics. We then discussed timing through the math section (spend as little time as possible while still answering the easier questions correctly). He worked on completing the first 10 questions in the practice test in under 5 min to get a sense of the pace he needs to start the section with. For reading, he worked through a timed prose and social science passage. He finished the social science passage much quicker, but averaged the same score on both passages, 8/10. Lastly, we discussed the essay. The student and I talked through the different parts of the essay, and then spent some time working on brainstorming thesis statements, support, and counter arguments for 2 different essay topics. For extra practice this week, he has 1 timed essay, 2 science passages, and 2 reading passages."
