Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Again, the student and I focused on the reading section of the SAT. I had given him some vocab and reading questions to work on independently, so we began by going over those. I took some time to walk him through vocabulary studying tips, including making personal connections to the words and drawing pictures to go along with the definitions. I encouraged him to go through the vocab word list we had built together over the past two weeks and use these new strategies to review each word. I also left him with a list of root words, prefixes, and suffixes that should make studying easier. Afterwards, we looked at some reading comprehension passages. The student did a better job of paying attention to what he was reading than he had done previously. We talked about finding meaning in the text, and then ended the session with a passage from a past SAT practice exam. I left the student with some comprehension and vocab questions and asked him to study his vocab words over the next few days. I hope to continue practicing these two skills in the same ways on Sunday."
"The student and I worked on the math section, going question by question and making sure he had all the content knowledge to answer everything correctly."
"We went over a writing section- identifying sentence errors. Student is not struggling. Student will have extra practice problems."
