Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student scored highly on his last test. We proceeded by continuing to overview the biology section. We covered the circulatory/respiratory systems, the nervous/endocrine systems, the musculoskeletal system, and some biochemistry."
"Today I was updated on the student's progress. She says that she feels more confident as a result of her studying using some of the tools I taught her. We created a schedule for the coming week with a detailed plan of what things she would do for each subject. We then discussed her secondary applications and different approaches for answering some of the essay questions."
"This was our final session. We focused on reviewing the student's most recent verbal practice passages, emphasizing reading the question and coming up with an idea of the answer before looking at the choices. We also reviewed final strategies for prepping for his test on Thursday including getting plenty of sleep and stress reduction."
"The student and I created an intense study plan for the next month. I sent her some resources and we then completed a few verbal reasoning passages. Given time, she successfully answered about 83% of the questions correctly. Her area of improvement lies in completing the passage questions under time pressure. I assigned the following review topics as homework: stoichiometry, electronic structure, periodic table, translational motion, enzymes, and metabolism."
"Today's entire session was spent on logical reasoning. We covered a variety of question types across the range of difficulty levels. We discussed annotation techniques, answer elimination strategies, and time management strategies."
"The student and I reviewed the logical reasoning sections of his practice test. He is scoring well, but is just a few questions shy of his goal score in the last 10 questions of the LR sections. so we discussed strategies for difficult paradox, parallel, and point at issue questions. I recommend targeted LR practice on tough sections (#15-#25) and 1 full length practice test daily."
