Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did practice sections in reading and writing, as well as a practice essay. We went over her mistakes and tweaked her strategies one final time."
"This time we went over functions and graphs: first we started with a review, and then the student did some practice problems."
"The student completed three practice sections prior to our session - one critical reading, one math, and one writing. We went over her incorrect answers on each. She only got two incorrect in the critical reading section which was a slight improvement over her initial practice sections and I think she is gaining a good understanding of the type of questions tested in this section. She got three incorrect on the writing section. Two involved dangling modifiers, a subject we had not gone over before, while one involved a vocabulary word that she was unfamiliar with. We went over additional examples of dangling modifiers and subsequent subject placement. She got five questions incorrect in math. Two of these were because she did not completely read the question prior to answering. This had occurred on her practice PSAT as well, so we went over slowing down and underlining key question phrases. We spent the last hour going over the definitions of the 225 high yield vocab words. For home, she will continue to go over these words and I will quiz her next week."
