Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did final practice for the ISEE. Verbal, Quant, Reading, and Math. The student did amazing today and really got through all the questions really well!"
"During the hour and a half session we focused mainly on quantitative reasoning. The student reviewed percent problems. Today we focused mainly on learning concepts she has not yet encountered in eighth grade mathematics including solving absolute value equations, solving inequalities, solving distributive property and FOIL problems. After giving her practice problems she was able to solve a few on her own. I assigned her more practice for homework. It is vital that she review the work we do together and definitions to ensure she does not forget them come test day. We began working on geometry questions which we will continue during the next session."
"The students and I spent today doing some final overview of the format of the test. We worked through some of the practice test together and I set the timer so they will have a feel for how much time they will have for each question. We talked about techniques to get through the questions that are confusing for them and how to break down words to get a better understanding of what the correct answer might be. The boys say they feel prepared for the test and I feel like I have helped them at least have exposure to every type of situation they might face on the test. I wish them the best of luck and I hope they do as well as they feel like they will!"
