"We worked on the assessment Reading, mostly with a small amount of Math. We will talk about writing next session and then finish with more math and reading."
"Began with Reading Analysis before moving into Mathematics. Started with passage reading as she seemed relatively strong in the sentence completion component in our past session. Reviewed strategies for approaching questions and went over methods of eliminating trick answers. She had some trouble in comparing multiple passages, especially when asked to take the perspective of one author versus another, so we addressed a few questions about that and talked about how she could do that. We then moved into Mathematics, dealing with mostly geometry and graphs. Focused on applications of graphs, interpreting data, and ensuring that the right question was being answered (rather than the expected question)."
