Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed more topics that are tested on the math section (functions, more algebra strategies, and graphs) and went over practice questions for these topics. We also started reviewing some of the rules tested on the writing section and general strategies for the section and then applied them to practice questions."
"Tonight, the student and I worked mainly on the math section of the SAT. We worked on different math concepts. We will be meeting again on Wednesday and Monday to get her as prepared as possible for the SAT on November 2nd."
"The student and I reviewed her SAT practice test 8 on which she scored 2370! I was so psyched! Then we just did practice on PT 6 verbal and math for the rest of the time. She is still dropping some easy points here and there on the exam. Overall, though her confidence is building as each practice test improves. She is so ready for test day this Saturday!"
"Today we made formal introductions and established our expectations and goals for future tutoring sessions. We also discussed the student's most recent SAT scores and identified the areas we need to work on. By the next session, she will have the Official SAT Study Guide. I will find and recommend more resources as needed."
"Today we practiced more reading passages (timed and with strategies for saving time). We also practiced math problems. The student performed well on the majority of the math problems. Minor mistakes were due to misreading the question or minor errors, which we will work on next time."
"Today we reviewed her diagnostic calculator section. A few questions were missed, so I continued to stress that it is important to take your time and show all of the work. Specific topics we covered during this review were the equation of a circle, equation of a parabola, and symbolic equations. The student did a short timed section to finish the lesson. This section also prompted a short review of imaginary numbers."
