Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over two different Reading passages with 20 total questions that she answered before our session. We talked about a lot of different techniques, both on how to approach the reading as well as the questions and answers (e.g. look at the questions before the reading to know what to look out for, skim the passages if able-- which she is-- and just pick up on important words and transitions, focus on every word of each question and answer and identify any tricks that might be in them or any details to be aware of). We very thoroughly examined both the rationale behind the right and wrong answers to better understand both the keys and pratfalls to success."
"The student went through a practice science test during the first half of the session. In addition to going through the tables/graphs together, we also went through the questions together for the last two passages. Going through the questions together allowed me to see her understanding of the question and method to choose the best answer. She did not always have the most straightforward approach for different question types; in future sessions, I will be working with her on strategies for different question types in the science section. The second half of the session was spent on math, specifically practicing the word problems. The practice was beneficial to her, and I plan to incorporate more of this into future sessions."
"The was a productive session. We went through one practice test -- she answered most questions without help -- and started a second one. Her retention of the material is strong, and she learns quickly."
