Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Final session before actual SAT exam. We went over her last two practice tests and then reviewed grammar for the writing section. I gave her my pre-test pep talk/ instructions for studying and not studying, sleep, being early (unfamiliar test site), etc. She and her parents have a goal of 2250 which I think she will easily get. If she can reach that, then she will not take the test again. Also briefly discussed SAT2 subject tests, which ones, and when she was thinking about taking them."
"The student and I reviewed half of a full length SAT that she had started. I noticed that she seems to struggle with getting started on math problems and is a bit too dependent on the calculator for her calculations. I told her to complete the practice exam that she had started."
"The student scored about a 450 on her practice exam, but she had omitted far too many questions, so we talked about elimination strategies today so that she can raise her score to a 500-550."
