Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was the first session with the student, so we talked briefly about her expectations for our work together and about what she feels are her strengths and weaknesses. She indicated that she feels that she has room to improve in all 3 areas. We then went right into the verbal section with sentence completions and a short reading comprehension section. We then did a math section to finish up the session. I wanted to establish a baseline "approach" on these sections before we focused on time management (which will be the main focus of our sessions as we get closer to the test date). She is very, very bright and seems very determined to succeed. Judging from the ability and level of engagement that she showed during our first session, I am very optimistic about her chances for significant improvement."
"I gave her a diagnostic test focusing on the essay, writing, reading, and math sections. I also outlined what the next session would be like and discussed some basic strategies to keep in mind."
"We looked over some work that the student did on the first practice test then worked on reading comprehension."
