Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered strategies and practice with reading comprehension questions, and strategies, practice and rules for sentence correction."
"The student is making noticeable progress in reading. I believe he should spend further time practicing math, as well as some grammar. I strongly suggest that he takes at least one full-length, timed practice test before our next session."
"The student and I went over the 225 high yield vocabulary words she had been studying since last week and I then quizzed her on the material. She did a great job of learning these words and has a strong grasp of the definitions of a vast majority of them. We then completed and went over a math drill composed of 20 high yield/common math problems. While she knew how to do many of them, there were a couple (e.g. finding the shaded area, parabola equations) that we needed to go over. We additionally completed a sentence completion drill composed of 20 high yield/common sentence completion problem types. This reinforced the grammar drills we had done last week - she did an excellent job of remembering the importance of subject placement for "dangling modifier" sentences. Lastly, we wrapped up by doing a quick quiz of the vocabulary words we had gone over/learned at the start of the session. The student's exam is next Saturday. We will meet the day before, on Friday, from 6-8 pm."
