Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered general content questions from all sections, particularly organic solvents. We also went over some basic test taking strategies and time management skills."
"Went through verbal passages where the student did very well and only missed 1 question on 2 full passages. Also went through biology and OChem passages and will go through more passages tomorrow."
"The student and I focused on her most recent practice test for this session, as well as some problem areas in physical sciences. This most recent test went incredibly well! She scored a 31, which is so exciting. Her score was also very evenly balanced, which suggests that she could even grab a few more points once she completes reviewing all of the material. We spent the first hour reviewing problem spots from this test, the most significant of which was the organic chemistry passage on carboxylic acid derivatives. She had not yet reviewed this material, so it should be much clearer after reading the chapter, but after working through this passage together, she gained a greater understanding. I tested this understanding with some related practice problems. We then did three physics practice passages on fluids and pressure. She had discussed that she finds these types of passages challenging, so we decided to address that problem right then and there through some passages. These were very difficult passages that she did a great job of working through using the right equations. However, she hit some roadblocks, but after some gentle leading, she got to the correct answers. I suggested doing a couple more passages like these to really solidify her understanding of fluids, forces, and pressure."
