Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by reviewing a few key ideas from our last session, and ways in which they were connected to other work the student was doing outside of our sessions. We spent the majority of this session focusing on the sentence completion questions of the Critical Reading. We reviewed many concepts that are explored in this area, as well as strategies for working through the questions and overcoming particular logical challenges. As vocabulary is a significant element of the sentence completion questions, we spent time reviewing some words. We discussed a few different approaches to preparing for the exam's vocabulary challenge; after exploring a few different strategies, I believe we found approaches for both studying and encountering the questions on the test day that will be most effective for her. We concluded the session by working through three different sections of practice questions together. An emphasis throughout was the continued exploration of a logical, objective approach to the exam."
