Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We thoroughly reviewed various topics from all sections. Went step by step through many practice problems and recommended specific focus in grammar, functions, and vocabulary."
"I went over two sections of SAT math with the student. His grasp of algebra is getting steadily better and he knows how start many more problems."
"We began today's session by reviewing the practice Math questions I had asked the student to attempt to complete over the weekend. She told me she had some difficulty following the explanations for the correct answers that were provided in the book, so we went over each question individually, walking through the rationale and how to solve each one. Next, we began studying the Reading Comprehension section. We first looked at two selections of Reading Passage questions, using practical techniques with each question such as process of elimination, identifying key words in the passage, and supporting answers with in-passage evidence. Next, we moved on to Sentence Completion questions, utilizing tactics such as POE, finding trigger words, and matching both halves of the two-part question options to quickly eliminate wrong answers. Finally, we began reviewing the Writing Skills multiple choice section, starting with an overview of useful tips to tackle these questions, and briefly looking at some examples of these tips in action with practice questions in Identifying Sentence Errors and Improving Sentences."
