Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Finalized going over the rest of the math equations. Went over in depth how to approach rate and percentage based equations. Finished two entire science sections and discussed extensive strategies for it. Focused on essay writing mechanics and strategies for the essay section."
"The student and I went over math sections and science sections. She had completed an assessment practice test for English and reading. I think that for the next week, she'll do amazingly well and will do great on the test!"
"The student and I met for another session of assessment tutoring. Once again we went through all four sessions of the test plus writing. I started the session by reading over an essay she had written for homework. It was very strong. We then did practice sections. I spent a good amount of time on the science section. That included doing one section together, question by question. One other area she also needs to work on is her timing in the reading section."
"We covered the science section, and the student did all right. She scored a 28, which was in her range, but she could do much better with more practice. We also briefly covered the writing section so that she has an idea of what the prompts look like, and what her essay is supposed to look like."
"We covered tone and mood questions. The student was struggling with the harder reading questions concerning mood and tone, so we talked about strategies when you don't remember words. He made progress on the reading section and was better at main point questions."
"We definitely wanted to spend more time on timing issues, particularly in reading. The student's homework issues came from detail questions, suggesting she needs to pay more attention to her timing and reading style. So, we did just that. We set an 8.5 minute timer to do each reading passage and then go over the answers in detail. Interpretation seemed to be a bit of an issue ,so for 2 of them we went back through and discussed the passage. She also was able to get 2 science passages done perfectly and in around 9 minutes, which is exactly where it should be."
