Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We dd extensive vocabulary prep. I tried to find odd or difficult terms to help the student practice. He struggled with some of the terms as expected but I am confident that he has the core concepts down so the more he becomes familiar with the more difficult terms the better he will do."
"I worked through an assignment that I gave him for homework yesterday on google docs (which was helpful because he could see my edits as well as comments as I'm typing them). We spent the whole time discussing how he can improve. The student is doing better in fully answering the question. I spent some time explaining to him why it is ill advised to use terms that have absolute meanings (will, won't, have) and to make his examples more generalized. I am giving him 3 assignments that he is to do over the course of 3 days and time himself. I am having him hand-write them so he can get a better idea of how much time should be allotted per question. I am also giving him some exercises for improving sentences from an SAT practice book."
"We covered current events and major issues involving South Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. The student's attitude is extremely positive. We took notes and discussed the relevant ideas. A major win was the high level questions of the student."
