Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I noticed that he could still use some improvement in the reading comprehension sections, so we practiced more reading passages and questions, practicing reading strategies until they were very familiar. He went from getting half right to 100% on the last 2 passages we tried. His reading speed also markedly improved."
"She did an excellent job with the math section today - she remembered a lot of topics we had previously reviewed (proportions, probability and statistics, in particular), and she made some great connections when we reviewed the ones she missed that showed that she has really started to understand some of the harder material. I am very proud of her as this was her highest-scoring math section ever. We also did some final reading passages, and she did a great job of focusing and being able to show me where she found her answers. I think she had made a lot of progress."
"We used this time to run through a final set of practice problems together before the exam next Saturday. The student was impressive in essentially all areas, and only really faltered when I presented inferential passages to him in reading. The student remained on task and diligent through the entirety of the session. As far as strategies are concerned, I spent some time teaching a factoring trick to him for polynomials in algebra. I recommended that the student take the full length practice test he has access to sometime early this week. I will use this to make a final determination on progress for Thursday (our last session)."
