Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered a quite a bit during this session. First we went over the material I assigned the student to work on at home. She was just over the 50% mark for the writing section and close to the 70% for the reading. Today we worked briefly on the writing mechanics for improving sentences, paragraphs, improving participle phrases, and sentence parallelism. Then we moved onto the practice problems on page 178 and 166. She showed a good understanding of the concepts. We did 3 critical reading sections, and she did very well."
"Today the student completed SAT practice tests 2 and 3. We then id a review of the questions. Next we worked on some new vocab."
"The student and I went over critical reading strategies and essay writing for the assessment. I gave her homework to complete for the next session pertaining to the strategies discussed during the session."
"We finished reviewing for the student's statistics test. We worked on the normal distribution, how to calculate z-scores and how to apply the Central Limit Theorem. We also worked on Bayes' rule and the Poisson distribution."
"The student and I worked through approximately 60 SAT math questions, with an emphasis on algebraic expressions (including creating algebraic expressions and setting equations equal), as well as systems of equations and ratios/probability. She was more comfortable with the material than in previous sessions. We also reviewed the math homework I had assigned."
"The student completed a math section and a writing section. She scored 10/20 on the math, and 36/44 on the writing. We're going to drill the various concepts that she's still struggling with over the next few weeks before her ACT. I assigned her to work on her essay."
