Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I continued to review the second of two math diagnostics. He and I continue to work math problems side by side, and his geometry and algebra skills are improving."
"She completed a 25-minute Math section from the PSAT prep packet, which she completed with ample time. We went over Geometry problems in the prep book, which she started to grasp. We will work to address this in future sessions. She is to take a full-length practice test on Friday. She is to take all 9 sections of practice test 1, under testing conditions. This will serve as our diagnostic to determine what Math subjects she needs to work at, and if she needs help in the Writing or Critical Reading sections."
"The student suggested that in today's session we focus on geometry, as that is where she feels the least confident. I was happy to oblige! I encouraged her to tell me what is most troublesome to her, because in the end, only she knows what most worries her about the test. So we started by going over the extra practice I had given her and then moved on to the geometric comparisons on the quantitative section of the test. I think this made her realize how important knowing her formulas is for the test. We then started to go over the geometry practice test for the math section, which we will continue tomorrow."
