Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked on various science and reading passages. Has progressed greatly. Moving up to more advanced passages."
"In this final session, the student and I went over an essay he had written as well as some final reading comprehension passages. We had completed all the math practice problems in his book as well as most in mine, and he felt very comfortable in that area. Looking over the English sections I had him do, he did not miss any problems and therefore we did not dwell on those problems either. For reading comprehension and his essay, we discussed what made a passage strong, and how to deliver a well structured thesis with supporting examples in the body paragraph. We also discussed how writing an essay for the SAT would be different from writing one for an English class; the former needs to be well constructed, specific, and brief. At the end of the lesson, we reviewed science problems, again he was very comfortable with these."
"First session was an introduction to the student and his family. We went over writing strategies for the ACT writing portion."
