Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the basics of taking the test and planned a study schedule. Then we went over some math problems in the text book."
"Today we went over the practice test that the student worked on last week. Some of the incorrect ones he was able to correct himself without guiding. We also went over more strategies on how to approach different types of problems."
"We discussed the student's concerns and priorities with respect to her admissions test preparation, and she opted to begin with the Reading section. We practiced content skills including parsing sentences that have unusual syntax, using related words & context clues to decipher unfamiliar words, and checking her assumptions of what a paragraph or passage is saying against the text using key words and phrases. In addition, we went over a number of test-taking strategies for passage-based reading. She is clearly bright, and picks up strategies quickly. I gave her a brief assignment to practice some of the techniques we worked on, and we plan to go over it at the start of our next session. From there, we'll move into sentence completion questions and then tackle the multiple-choice questions in the Writing section before moving on to math."
