Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is improving, but I will try to improve her ability to apply what she learns during our sessions. She is very attentive, though, and I think she will improve her SAT score. I advised her to focus on math, and we spent most of the time today reviewing fundamentals and working through speed problems."
"We started by finishing up the essay from last session. We reviewed it together and the student expanded on one body paragraph so he could practice getting more specific with his example paragraphs and relating back to his thesis. Then he completed a 25 minute timed Writing section in Practice Test 1. We reviewed the questions he missed, the majority of which dealt with subject-verb agreement and comparisons, and then did extra practice problems on those concepts. His homework for next week is to practice vocabulary flashcards and complete a 25 minute Math section and a Writing section. We will continue to focus on grammar."
"The student and I worked on a critical reading section and most of two writing (mechanics and usage) sections from an SAT practice test, focusing on timing strategies and revisiting the grammar rules he missed. I also had him write brief outlines for two sample prompts and gave him feedback."
