Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I ran through most of an SAT Reading section. I gave her some tips that she can apply to the entire section, including tips on how certain questions can help answer other questions. Sometimes she tends to answer a question without thinking it through, so I told her to slow down a tiny, tiny bit and fully consider all aspects of the answer choices, because there is only one correct answer per question, even if multiple answers SEEM right."
"Our last session went great. We went over math and reading. Her reading is amazing. She is getting 8+ questions right per passage. Also, her has math has increased based on the last test she took. Lastly , we spent the time working out her strategy for the test."
"The student and I did a lot of work on multiplication. She deserves a lot of credit for sticking with it and getting a grasp of it. After that, we did a worksheet in which she had to turn statements into questions. It was a little hard for her. She struggles with graphs and understanding. We read a book on the life of a baby tiger that had a lot of graphs chart his growth. She did very well."
"The student and I had a good initial session. We primarily discussed a plan of action to assist him as he prepares for two application-based courses in economics this fall. He has a goal of reviewing important micro- and macroeconomic concepts, and we developed a comprehensive list of topics. Each session, I will have materials and even sample questions/problems as needed to review. We were still able to discuss his knowledge of several preliminary topics and review in-depth specific areas such as taxation and GDP."
"The student needed support with his math homework today. Concepts covered included plotting points on a grid and identifying the origin. He also worked with word problems and studied for his Science Quiz on human anatomy. He did a great job today and is ready for his quiz."
"Today we worked on a proof with MGF's. It was fun because although the definition of MGF's uses integrals, we were able to work the proof on the Expectation level and not have dive into the integrals. :-)"
