Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the various practice problems for the reading and writing part of the SAT. We also discussed one of the essay prompts and outlined a potential answer to the problem."
"Final session before the student's test this weekend. Focused on Math, especially difficult math. Also reviewed median, mode, range, mean. Did a final essay brainstorming. Went over overall test strategy, section by section."
"We went over any final questions that the students had about each of the sections and the test itself. We also worked on some practice math, writing, and vocab multiple choice and went over some frequently occurring SAT vocab."
"The student did well with phoneme sounds today. She also read all of the sight words today with little to no assistance! She did a great job with the sentences. We will have 10 new sentences for the next session. I asked her to continue practicing the reading stories daily. Great job!"
"We finished chapter one today - we introduced the pronunciation and accentuation rules in Spanish and we also finished with an overview of all the material. We also started Chapter 2 and discussed the use of adjectives with the verb "ser" when describing people."
"We started off talking about the plan going forward for the rest of the summer, and how best to catch the girls up. Next session, we will do a full-length timed practice test to gauge their progress so far with the material. This time, I had the girls start off with two different math worksheets covering fraction comparisons and long division, respectively. After reviewing the answers to these, I had them complete a full-length Verbal Reasoning practice test that we reviewed the answers to afterwards. I also gave them each four words to look up the definitions to and write sentences with, before ending with a writing activity that involved looking at a photo out of context and developing a story around it."
