Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our last session before the holiday. I left the student with a book that she should read because it's nonfiction yet very accessible so hopefully she will be able to use it to have a better understanding of nonfiction critical reading pieces. Overall it was pretty good."
"The student and I reviewed the practice math section he worked on first. He got every question right, which was of course terrific. I asked him to do another math section for homework to get used to filling in the scantron and student-produced responses (and because he enjoys the math much more than the writing section!). We then returned to writing. He is having some trouble producing the essay in the 25 minutes allotted; we determined that what's holding him up is too much planning time. We planned and timed several essays in a row and wrote one or two, just to get used to planning and outlining in under five minutes."
"The student just got her PSAT scores back and wanted to focus on her reading and writing scores, so we worked on some vocab and active reading strategies. She was receptive to these techniques and just needs to continue to practice them. She is fun to work with, and I look forward to seeing her next week."
