Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent time going over introductions, goals, expectations, and so on. We then spent the entire lesson going over the SAT format, the best ways to study, test taking skills, and finally the essay section. We went over how to craft an effective essay, the rubric, read examples of good and bad essays, practiced making outlines, and started brainstorming examples that could be used for support in essays. The student seemed to enjoy it more as the lesson progressed. I left him with some notes and some a practice exam to take."
"We reviewed the essays the student wrote for homework. We discussed structure, and sticking to the theme of the essay that has been defined, and using more sophisticated vocabulary. We also worked on sentence completion and correction, and discussed the flashcards she created to review vocabulary."
"We covered difficult problems from an ACT prep book. The student seems to have difficulty with sequence problems and remembering terms from arithmetic such as lowest common multiple and greatest common factor. We will work on this skill in the future."
