Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered reading comprehension and sentence correction questions. We also discussed the student's previous tutor experiences and what to expect going forward. The student's weaknesses are primarily in critical reading and writing. For next time, the student will do the following: -Review grammar -Start reviewing vocabulary daily -Review shaky math concepts -Take a practice test"
"We reviewed her scores from the diagnostic tests she took this week. We spent most of the session reviewing topics in algebra and arithmetic. We will continue to practice math problems over the next few sessions."
"The student got a copy of a review book over the weekend. This will help us stay more organized leading up to taking the test. We covered the first chapter today. It was all pretty familiar, so he had no trouble with any of it. He seemed encouraged by how easy the problems were for him."
"In today's lesson, we primarily focused upon practice questions commonly seen in each of the four sections on the exam. This included the reading, writing and math sections. In writing, we went over grammar rules involving plural use of colons, and in reading, we focused upon the humanities passages. In math, we focused on different triangle problems that show up frequently. Overall, it was a productive session and the writing seemed to be her strongest section today."
"In today's session, the student and I continued our discussion of math concepts tested on the SAT. We reviewed systems of equations and data analysis, discussing crucial components of each, as well as a strategy for translating English into math (applicable on trickier word problems). We prioritized linear equations during our session, reviewing slope and equations of a line, and worked through a variety of relevant real-world problems. I've instructed him to complete a math section either prior to our session tomorrow or before our math session next week. Great work!"
"In today's session, the student completed three math SAT sections. He did really well and was able to complete most of the problems on his own with little to no difficulties. He is going to take a practice SAT this weekend, and we will go over the results in our session on Monday."
