Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed math schoolwork in preparation for upcoming test. Covered SAT math section topics and practice."
"The student and I covered general SAT format, instructions and test layout--she has never taken a practice test or researched the SAT, so we spent quite a bit of time on this. We discussed the Critical Reading section at length, reviewing the guide's CR section overview, answering guided practice questions along the way. I advised making flashcards for new words as she encounters them in the guide, and reviewing these constantly before the test. I also advised that she read CR passages very carefully with great attention to detail. We also talked through the essay portion of the Writing section. The student completed a timed essay from Practice Test 1. She will prep for next week's meeting by making and studying vocab cards/lists, reading the guide's chapters on Writing and Math, and finishing Sample Test 1 (all sections). She will prepare a list of specific questions, and next week, we plan to focus largely on Math."
"We covered the definitions of even and odd functions, quadratic functions, how to find the zeros of a function, trigonometric ratios, arcs, and angles."
