Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Paisley
The student is making steady progress on the verbal section. I am feeling very proud of her progress, but also believe that it will be beneficial for her to slow down. I have been giving her exercises (such as writing out her thought process to check scrambled paragraphs) to moderate her tendency to rush and under-check answers.

Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Jazmyn
Today, the student and I reviewed her assignment from two weeks ago she got 100% on the scrambled paragraphs and reading section. We reviewed each of the problems she got wrong, and she seemed to understand it better. We then started working in the two new books that her mom bought for her. We worked on a lot of logic problems, and I helped her come up with problem solving techniques to work her way through logic problems.

Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Scott
This was our first session, so I introduced the test to the student and gained a sense of what level he was at. We went over each section, did a few practice problems, and I gave him strategies to work on.

Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Jay
After a brief introduction, I wanted to get her baseline score in verbal. Average in scrambled paragraphs. Good in logical reasoning. Very good in reading comprehension. Student was struggling in scrambled paragraph, but as expected, as compared to students at her grade level. I left her with homework, focusing on scrambled paragraphs, and logical reasoning. Also, gave her a sample exam to do, that we'll go over next session. Good verbal skills. Next session will focus on her math skills. She is motivated and ready to learn.

Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Tiffany
The session began by reviewing the practice test the student took during the previous session. I explained the errors to the student and we worked through each of the problems together. I left the student an extra ninth grade practice test for math.

Online SHSAT Tutoring review by Brian
Great first lesson! The student has some clear patterns with reading and focus that are at the root of his issues with the test, and it was very helpful to see them in action in person. The skills we worked on with reading comp. were already having positive impact by the end of the session. Our next lesson will be a great time to jump in with some reading comp. activities and some scramble discussion.
