Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had finished a writing prompt prior to our session. I read through it and gave her notes. We then looked at a 12 point response for the same prompt for comparison. We then moved on to Reading and English sections. She did very well. In the Reading section, we focused on specific strategies for different types of questions she may encounter."
"The student and I worked on all four sections today. His math is very strong (answered 28/30 questions correctly) and his reading is building up, but English took a bit of a hit today. The main reason for that was that he was second-guessing himself and changing his answers. We've discussed methods for avoiding that pothole. I've given him some work for the weekend and we've scheduled next week's sessions. He did a good job!"
"The student and I practiced mostly English this session. She is getting better but for now just needs more practice. Math we will get to, depending on how she does with her homework. Her Reading and Science are good in terms of strategy and getting answers correct. We just need to practice more. Her homework is all of Test 2 and to then look over wrong answers before the next session. This way, we can review any area if needed, otherwise next session will probably be an English, Reading, and Science practice passage review, review of Test 2's incorrect answers and tips, and then a Math blitz."
