Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I discussed a strategy to up her test score, which is our primary focus. I created an assignment for her to work on until we meet again. The assignment included a long vocabulary list, videos to introduce her to general chemistry, practice math problems, reading assignments, and a mechanics assignment. She and I worked for a long time practicing long division, multiplication, fractions, and decimals. At first, she was a little unsteady with multiplication and division, and a little intimidated by fractions. At the end of the session, she was solving multi-step computations and algebraic equations. She stated she "felt like she got somewhere!"."
"The student and I worked on her Critical Reading and Writing sections today. Her sentence completion strategies are improving, but she needs to study her vocabulary more. She is doing a better job of identifying more difficult questions and then skipping them, and I think the next step is to get more confident with her time management, so she knows that she actually has more time than she thinks."
"This was the student's first session, so we went through his strengths and weaknesses on both the SAT and the ACT tests. The student is a little unsure of his plan for the next few weeks, so I gave him a few resources to help him out. I asked the student to have the SAT Math diagnostic done for me for next time."
