Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"He had a very good tutoring session. He is a pleasant and bright young man. We started the session with Vocabulary review and introducing new vocabulary words. He completed an English ACT exam section and reviewed nouns, pronouns, and verbs. He completed several ACT Math problems. He did well on a majority of them but was over thinking several of the problems he had difficulty with. In the science portion, he completed 20 questions. We reviewed POE and triage strategies."
"We worked through timed reading comprehension passages. We also worked through a science section together and part of a section timed. We will do less work on science sections in the future as she was especially adept at them."
"The student took some practice tests and we went over some of the material that she had prepared. We focused today on the English section and went over the problems that she missed and clarified the various grammar, syntactical, semantical, stylistic, and thematic reasons why each answer was best. The point that we talked about the most was how to look at a problem and realize what the test makers are asking us -- punctuation, wordiness, context, definitions, proper word use-- so that we can more precisely turn our focus to the differences in the answer choices to discover which answer is best. I think that this technique will work very well for her."
