Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we completed an entire verbal reasoning and quantitative reasoning section from a practice exam. The student did great!"
"The student completed and I and gave feedback on her homework. She did well on the essay. I just want her to expand on her examples using choices from literature, history, or science. Her math section is improving, especially since she has not done binominal expansion yet. She is learning the FOIL method which will help with the problem sets. We did extra math problems today to work on that weakness as well. She also has several vocabulary words to go over."
"I suggested to the student that since we'd done math on Sat, we revisit the other areas today, working together on a verbal section test and then possibly on reading. As we worked on the Synonyms portion, and then the Sentence Completions, I noted strategies for answering those questions, from elimination of wrong answers to seeing what tone is called for, etc. This is an area he needs to work on, so the practice was timely. I wound up writing out all the strategies so he can practice using them in the next few days. We then went on to the website so I could preview with the student all the placement exam practice material available there. At the end I gave standard test-taker advice about sleep, relaxation, a good breakfast and getting to the test site early."
