Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"7th grade math packet review. Reading comprehension section review and test-taking techniques. Beginning of math section review."
"I had the student write an essay as HW, giving him several topics to choose from. He chose to write about a famous person he would like to meet. We discussed using the entire time and adding more details to his essay. I had him write another essay for me on a different topic. This essay was more detailed and so was the pre-writing he did. I was impressed that he thought so thoroughly about the topic and his arguments, looking at both the positive and negative aspects. We are also working on the vocabulary and the verbal reasoning portion of the test. I discussed spending some time reading books and looking up words he doesn't know that he comes across as he reads. I'm having him take brief notes on the definitions of the words in his own words, to help them stick in his mind. Next time I come, I will bring him a vocabulary list, and he has also requested a book recommendation list."
"This was our first session, so we talked about the type of test the student will be taking. I spent some time getting to know her and helping her to feel comfortable."
