Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed mathematics concepts: adding and subtracting fractions, rate problems, percent of profit, etc. We also did proofreading and analogies."
"The student and I went through a practice exam (timed) in preparation for his test tomorrow. I will see him next week to prepare for his next SSAT exam."
"Today the student and I focused on logic. I found some logic practice questions, and we actively discussed 15 of them. He read the question, then summarized the question into his own words. This was done to make sure he understood what he just read, and what the question was asking. I also ask him if he knows the meaning of difficult words when I see them used in a question. If he doesn't know what a word means, we look the word up together. Next, we read through the multiple choice answers, and determine which answers would not work. The student has figured out a trick to focus on the last sentence and the first in the question when going through the answer choices. I think he really likes logic, as he was asking a lot of questions and actively participating throughout our session."
