Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on the English section of the test. First, I went over her full length practice test that she took since our last session. The English material we went over was first and foremost the structure of the section and then basic strategies such as identifying what's being changed in the answers, and following along in the text with our finger. We went over common verb and pronoun errors and did many practice questions."
"The student and I met today to go over the results of her last reading practice test. She scored a 19! I am very pleased with this progress, and she seems to be as well. We also talked about her reading comprehension practice--she selected a reading and brought it in with notes, and we discussed how to expand on those. We also talked about a bit of research I did on speed vs. slow reading and how to keep from zoning out on the exam. After two practice quizzes, we determined that a combination of slow and speed skimming is what works for her."
"The student and I worked on the science portion of the test today. She did a great job on it! I offered her tips and strategies to maximize her time on this section and then we worked on a practice test."
