Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on writing and then science. She is much stronger in the writing and reading sections, so we will focus more on science and math. I think she is making good progress, and she has no problem with the concepts. I asked that she finish the science section for homework."
"We reviewed the reading sections that I had assigned the student and pinpointed which sections needed additional work and practice. After that, we went over the science passages, which the student seems the most adept at. After we finished science, I had her do a social science reading section for practice. We went over the answers once she had finished."
"We went over the structure of the exam and also talked about his experience with English, his hopes for college, and when he wanted to take the exam. His English needs some work and that the one of the major difficulties of the SAT is often tricky use of language, even in math sections. His math is excellent, but he needs to learn some math vocabulary (median, mean, perpendicular etc.) so he does not get a question wrong because he knows the math but doesn't know the English. We did some practice questions in all three sections together just to gauge his abilities. Time is the key ingredient with improvement in language."
