Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was my final session with the student before he took the test. We mainly reviewed math, where he has been showing notable improvements, as well as writing, where he remains strong. His attitude continues to be positive and level-headed. We also talked about the essay a bit at the end, going through some mock brainstorming and outlining."
"This session we went over a practice natural sciences passage from a reading section. The main strategies that I emphasized for that passage were 1) go into the question with a clear expectation of what the answer should be to avoid being fooled by a false but alluring answer choice and 2) really make the most of the process of elimination. We then looked at some practice English question, focusing on subject-verb agreement and revising ambiguous and redundant sentences. The student did quite well with the ambiguous and redundant sentences."
"We did some math problems so I could get a better idea of what the student needed to work on. Found we needed to review sequences and sets. We also did a practice reading passage and some sentence error questions."
