Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to work on our geometry review and practice. We covered lines and angles, triangle properties, circles and quadrilaterals, and formulas for area, perimeter, and volume."
"For this one-hour session, the student and I focused on her critical reading skills. I went through five practice passages with her, encouraging her to ask questions and jot down notes as she read. Before, she read passively; now, she understands the concept of "active reading" and how it will help her on test day. I also stressed that she should "predict before she peeks," that is, predict an answer BEFORE looking at any of the reading section's answer choices. She is often tempted by wrong answers that are technically correct statements, but do not refer to the passage. Predicting will improve this dramatically! We finished the session with a discussion about pacing. Wonderful job!"
"Spent the majority of time reviewing math subjects; reviewed reading comprehension strategies and questions."
