Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We focused on writing today, going through several passages/ problems. The student is doing better with these type of problems. We also did practice with reading and some math. He is also doing well with these sections. I left him with some grammar practice as well as reading and writing sections."
"We went over practice problems in all areas of the test (reading, writing, and math) to discern where should be the focus of the tutoring session. Math seemed very strong for the student, so we focused on reading and writing. We went over numerous examples fixing sentence structure and punctuation and lightly touched on pronouns. I gave the student a full practice PSAT to go over by next time, and we will go over any problematic questions (since the attachment also has solutions)."
"Today the student and I concluded our preparation for the SAT. I essentially had him go through a few practice tests and try any question he thought posed the slightest complication. Once again, he proved himself apt with the hardest of questions. I recommended he keep reviewing for the PSAT until the test to avoid getting rusty, but that he scale back on the time he puts into it and concentrate more so on school. With that we concluded."
"The student did a practice test that was assigned for homework. We went over the mathematics sections on the test, mistakes, concepts, etc. We're going to work on something similar next week."
"The student and I went through her homework. She did an excellent job with the reading passages, only missing a few questions, and has really picked up on the reading comprehension techniques. In the math homework, there were some topics that she was unfamiliar with, including finding medians and dealing with sequences. We went through lessons pertaining to both topics and she did a good job with the practice questions. We finished off with a lesson on the past participle verb tenses, looking at techniques, and doing a series of practice questions. She is doing a great job all around!"
"Today we finished the newest practice test, specifically the reading and writing portions. We walked through the questions together, so we worked on very little content. We only really discussed in-test strategy. The student's current scores on each section are actually about the same: 72/80. This is a very high score. We can continue to work on each section, but all we're doing now is working to prevent error. His scores have moved up into the 97th percentile across the board."
