Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on preparing the student for his math exam. We discussed algebraic thinking and I helped him understand the meaning of operations. He then took a practice test, where he did excellent. He also did math homework, adding and subtracting fractions, which I checked for him. The student did great!"
"The student had done practice reading, writing, and math sections in preparation for our session today. In Math, we reviewed probability, finding the slope, direct and indirect relationships, similar triangles, coordinate geometry, and percent increase/decrease using her practice tests and questions from the website. I finished the session with overall strategy reminders for her in each section of the test. The student will take the assessment for a second time this Saturday."
"The student and I went over everything he has learned during our sessions, including reading strategies, math concepts, grammar, and test-taking strategies."
"To start, I went over the worksheets the student did for homework, which she did well on. We then worked on more math problems before doing some reading comprehension and logical reasoning. I also asked her to do part of a practice test for homework."
"Today I asked the student to complete two sections of a standard SAT exam just to be certain that she had no difficulty with high-level grammar. She also completed two reading selections from a practice book for the Literature SAT. This test is very challenging, especially since some of the readings are from the 1600s and therefore use archaic language and structures. I pointed out that one reference was from Greek mythology."
"Today the student and I began by reviewing the different strategies for factoring. He did very well and has expressed interest in practicing on his own. I gave him some tips for studying on his own, such as keywords to search in order to find practice worksheets. I also gave him some general studying advice. After the review, we spent the rest of the session working out of his practice SAT book. I already see improvement in his ability to use what he knows to solve problems. He has improved in his ability to solve equations and to recognize how to solve certain problems."
