Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Spent most of the session reviewing the Reading section. The last half hour was devoted to science. The student is continuing to improve."
"The student was able to complete a full length assessment test prior to our session and scored a 1670! We went over the answers at today's session. She did a great job on the essay section, utilizing a variety of supporting examples from history and literature. We additionally went over the last 20 core vocab words. Homework: practice test 2 in blue book, section 1 (essay) and 2 (critical reading) timed. Sentences for vocabulary words #81-100."
"Went through tips on how to improve time on all four sections of the assessment. Practiced a few problems from each section."
"The student and I focused on Critical Reading and vocabulary, at his request. He has decent strategies for these types of questions, but he still ends up guessing sometimes because there are words that he is unfamiliar with. He should make use of his vocabulary cards and try to learn 20 or 30 words a week."
"The student and I focused on grammar during Monday's session. We discussed unclear antecedents, noun/verb agreement, verb tense, and prepositional phrases. We also focused on order of sentences in paragraphs and determining whether passages fulfilled the author's stated purpose. I assigned an essay to be completed before our next session."
"The student and I focused on MAP reading. She is having the most trouble with new vocabulary and in making inferences. I will help her more with these concepts during our next session, and also test her ability in Math and eventually Science. The student has a great attitude!"
