Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was my first session with this student. We did a lot of work on strategies to use when taking the test, and how the test is scored. More specifically, we talked extensively about how it's important to read the material on the SAT differently than she would read books for school. We went over some practice problems, and I think they were beneficial."
"We completed practice questions in sentence completions and math. We started a vocabulary study list and discussed the meanings of unknown words. We further developed the student's study schedule for the coming week including homework and topics to cover in subsequent tutoring sessions."
"For this session we focused on what the SAT would cover in general and the critical reading portion of the test. We worked through a set of critical reading practice problems from the student's SAT prep book and I set a timer. The student is able to devote about a minute to answering each question, which is on par with the time allotted for the SAT. He could use improvement in terms of comprehending given passages and sections of passages. Next session, we plan on doing some critical reading and essay writing practice."
