Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed overall Strategies and Sections. - Importance of Skipping - Lesson on Grammar - Basic Rules/Common Errors"
"The student and I spent most of our session today focusing on the reading section, but we also went over a few problems in math. We started by discussing the strategies for the subsections of the reading section: vocabulary, short passages, and comparison passages. She was very accurate throughout the section, but was not meeting the time requirements. As a result, I encouraged her to change her approach to the longer passages, going straight to the questions rather than reading the passage first. We will practice with his method so she feels completely comfortable while using it on her SAT. We also went through some problems in the math section, which she did excellently on. There were just a few problems she missed. For extra practice, I encouraged her to sign up for the SAT Question of the Day and work on learning at least 2 new vocabulary words each week. Although I do not think it is prudent to learn a lot of vocabulary (because it comprises so little of the test), I think 2 words per week is a good starting point."
"We began preparing for the SAT. We worked on Math questions, finishing one section and starting on another. We are working on crafting a personalized strategy."
