Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I ran through the essay section of the test. I told her the way she should structure the essay and the best tone and vocabulary to use. I also emphasized that she should find good quotes and analyze them. I assigned more work for next time."
"Tonight was my last session with this student. We met to go over some final strategies for her to use on her test tomorrow. She stated that she was most worried about timing, especially with the math section, so I uploaded a practice math section, and set the timer for 30 minutes. We then reviewed the questions. She missed only four questions. I assured her that was really good. We reviewed the strategies that we had previously gone over that were specific to each section, and talked about the writing prompt. I feel as though she is very well prepared for the SSAT tomorrow."
"We worked on writing the letters S, L and Z. We specifically worked on forming each letter the "correct" way per the Handwriting curriculum. We also did letter sound flashcards and finished with tic-tac-toe, using different letters each game in lieu of "x" and "o." Next session, we will work on more handwriting and continue mastering letter sounds."
"The student and I started off the session reviewing verbal, then went on to review math concepts. He seems pretty proficient at the verbal. I've given him some homework, and we'll see how he does on that. Quant-wise, we are still reviewing the content. I've given him homework to solidify his foundation. Hopefully we can finish them up next time and get started on GMAT questions."
"The student is within a section or two of finishing this class! Today she worked on an extended response assignment, so she could submit it and move on to the quiz for the section. She got all done with the assignment."
"Today we worked on getting the student's timing down for the ACT test. On the science section, she did pretty well on the graph and table passages, but had more trouble with timing on the comparison passage. On the reading section, she had some trouble finishing as well. She finished the ACT English passages on time, but we are working on making sure she is fast enough to answer all the questions, but slow enough to not make any errors. We will continue to work on this."
