Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We went over the math content areas identified as needing improvement through her homework in the practice drill section, as well as reviewing her work on a full practice section. The student has strong mastery of the content. She performed very well on the practice section.

The student and I worked mostly on essays today. She wrote two essays and I helped her with planning, spelling, and punctuation. I also made up some questions for her to do to make sure she still remembered the math and quantitative reasoning concepts such as area, coordinates and number lines.

We reviewed some Math concepts she had trouble with last time, probability, and finding the mean. Then we worked together on the Math practice test in the book. She found some of the problems to be a little tricky so we worked them out together. Next we did a few Reading Comprehension passages in the book. She did very well and got all the answers right. Then I reviewed the vocabulary we worked on last time and introduced some new words. Finally we talked about attention grabbers in essay writing, and we worked on one together.

I began our session first with some questions for the student about her strengths and weaknesses. Then with a diagnostic test for the verbal section. We focused on strategies for sentence completions and synonyms.

This was our first session back from break and we discussed the math questions he missed on the practice test he took the first meeting. While reviewing the solutions to the questions, I talked over some of the strategies he could use to approach other math problems on the test. Then I took him through some of the strategies for the synonyms including "word arithmetic" of using prefix/suffix/root word meanings to discover a word definition. He did a practice set in the book and we reviewed his answers. Lastly, we reviewed the strategies for the sentence completion section and he did a practice set for that as well. I generated a word list for him and will create a review for him to do to remember the words he learned. He seemed to be a bit more engaged with the material this time.

This was another great session with the student. She is such a hard worker and it makes sessions productive. We spent the first twenty five minutes going over essay concepts and structure, and I'm pleased to see her improving. I think she'll do well on the essay section now. We spent the rest of the session working on math concepts. She understood and remembered a lot of the concepts I presented to her. She struggled with fractions and negative numbers, so I left her with YouTube videos to help her attempt to learn them before our next session. This will save time and allow us to complete math and review all concepts before she takes the test on Saturday.

-Covered Numbers & Operations-Ratio & Proportion-How to find a ratio and how to find a proportion
-Progress on representations of ratio (3 ways) and finding missing value in proportions

This was our last session, as the girls are taking the test on Saturday. We started by going over the homework I gave them last session. They were to finish the sentence completion exercises from last session. The girls did all of their homework, as well as studied their note cards. We went over just a few of the sentences, then went straight into the reading section. This is the section that both girls struggle with the most. We did a few exercises and they independently completed two passages.

Since she was taking the admissions test the next day, her mom asked me to focus on math. She is showing improvement in math. We are just working on the problems methodically and focusing on a few key concepts, including converting decimals to percentages and the different ways to tackle improper fractions.

We continued focusing on the Math Section of the ISEE, continuing our work with fractions, decimals, and percents. The student picks up the new material fairly easily. The most important thing is consistent practice so that he remembers how to go about solving these types of problems.

This was our last session before the student's test on Saturday, and he is doing so well! To go along with some drills, we did some timed sections. He got a perfect score on his math section and a perfect score on his reading section. He seems very relaxed and confident. After Saturday, we're going to use our remaining time for working on his application-essays.

Did verbal section (vocabulary - definitions & sentence completion) problems from the review book. The student will be taking the test on Saturday. The vocabulary was challenging for her, as was the math. I told her that she should continue to practice her math problems in the review book.
