Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"First session with the client. We began reviewing previous SAT performance and identified that math was the subject we should place most of our efforts. From there, a quick review of her math skills revealed that geometry and trigonometry were the subjects that most troubled her. We reviewed helpful formulas and some test taking strategies, to ensure that she could collect as many points as possible from the math sections of the test."
"Today we covered math (probability, statistics, word problems, algebra, exponents, and arithmetic sequences), writing, vocabulary, and reading questions. The student worked hard, maintained focus well, and, overall, did some great work tonight. Overall, the student did really well this week, though I think vocabulary seemed slightly more challenging than usual and as compared to the other topics. We did review a few strategies, including reading questions and answer choices first (reading questions) and eliminating answer options one at a time."
"We went over some critical reading problems and talked through strategies for linking words (like "hitherto") when he encounters them. We closed with another essay now that we've gone over making essays more concise."
