Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I explained various phrases and sentences to the student that he has encountered in his vocabulary and reading comprehension work since our last session."
"We started with the reading comprehension, as that involves the most reading, and talked about strategies for targeting the answers and not reading the whole passage if it's not necessary. She seemed to get a good grasp of what we talked about and she will do some on her own for next time to apply those strategies. We then talked about vocabulary and how it's important to parse what the word means quickly for definition questions instead of spending time wondering exactly what they mean. She started some flash cards for that purpose and we discussed when picking two words that fit in a sentence it's good to look for "groups" of definitions and keywords in the sentence that direct you toward what kind of vocab the question is looking for. For next session, she is going to make more vocabulary flash cards, and do some practice work so we can see where she might need more directed guidance."
"Today I covered some tips I used on the GRE and suggested some materials for additional studying. Overall the session went well."
