Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I have touched on all subjects of the SSAT, so we took a practice test this session. I timed the individual sections to give him practice in monitoring his own pace. He always finished with time to spare. The student didn't do as well as we expected, but I think it had to do with the fact that he had just recently come home from a long day at school and basketball practice was on his mind. I am currently going through the questions he missed and planning our next two sessions accordingly."
"We worked solely on the verbal section utilizing the website. The student had put together flashcards of Greek and Latin roots so we worked on sections that had to do with determining the meaning of a word when you do not know it based on roots in the word. Real progress made! She definitely has the ability to do it but we need to work on confidence. I reviewed her essay and thought it was well-written."
"The concepts covered during this session was mean, median, mode, range, and probability. The teacher reviewed the notes on each topic and conducted guided practice for each. The student showed mastery for each concept covered. The last hour of the session was spent completing practice problems with the focus being on test taking strategies. As we came to topics the student did not know, we reviewed how to solve problem and what strategy we could use going forward. She remained focused. The teacher will send the parent practice problems to complete prior to next scheduled session."
