Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we spent the first hour reviewing the student's vocabulary words. I had him create his own list of both words and definitions so that he can study them at his leisure at home or during any free time he may have. We then went over two reading passages - one formatted for the assessment."
"We covered SAT critical reading in this session, as he had missed about 43 points on this section in his last attempt at the test. He still has timing issues, but after having explained to him the strategies and types of problems he would find on the test, he got quite a high percentage of them correct. He was advised of online materials and to pick up a study book for review. He is to practice vocabulary out of that and do practice problems. He is struggling most with timing. His attitude was very positive and interested in learning."
"Today we focused on the English test. I had the student work practice questions covering the following areas: identifying sentence errors, improving sentences, and improving paragraphs. She had some difficulty with misplaced modifiers, and identifying errors in word choice."
