Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did very well today. We encountered several problems she could not solve, and then reviewed the material necessary to solve them. There are several more topics she needs to review to receive a top score, but she is in good shape for the majority of the exam."
"Very good! We went over test strategies, and he improved greatly. Once he got down how the take the test, timing did not seem to be an issue. I asked him to complete a practice test before next session."
"We started by going over some test problems the student had trouble with. It mostly covered linear motion and vector analysis. After about an hour of smoothly going over quiz problems, we encountered a kinematics problem that was more complicated than some of the other problems we had talked about. After spending some time to make sure the problem was clear, the student mentioned that it would be best if she prepared for the upcoming exam instead of looking at older problems. We decided that she would let me know if she needs additional help with the test prep for what will be on the exam: linear momentum, torque, and angular momentum."
"Great last session before the exam. The main subject we focused on was the reading section. We did practice problems under timed conditions and discussed the results and concepts underlying any questions he missed. The remainder of our session was spent reviewing test-taking skills and strategies for efficiency on the test."
"We did good, structured work today. We looked at integer properties, basic and important quadratics, algebraic manipulation, estimation (often using fractions), prime factors, geometric surface areas, and some interesting word problems. The student has very good habits, but certainly we'll be looking at ways to speed up processes, calculations, and arriving at final answers."
"We went over homework problems I had assigned for reading comprehension. We then practiced another reading section together, and the student did much better by outlining the passage while reading it. We also worked on logical reasoning and games; in the reasoning section, he is definitely making improvement, and he was much faster on the logic games than he has been in the past."
