Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the practice test the student took in preparation for our session. We focused in particular on gas laws, chemical equilibrium, and stoichiometry problems. We will meet again tomorrow."
"Today we went over the first six sections of practice test 5 for the SAT. We covered writing, math, and reading techniques. There is room for improvement in the math section, but the student seemed to understand the math problems best when they were explained as applied math rather than algebraic. She will see an increase in her math score if she does not get overwhelmed by the geometry questions. That is where I will focus my attention next lesson, because she is capable of improving in that area in a short amount of time. I told her to finish the rest of exam 5 so that we could grade it. I then instructed her to take a full practice exam (#6) this weekend to get accustomed to the time. When we meet next Monday, we will go over strictly math problems in these two exams. I also recommended that she commit this weekend to going over vocabulary for a couple of extra points on the reading section."
"We went over the different grammatical rules covered in the ISE section of the SATs and then went over how to set up complicated math problems to make them easier to solve and understand. The student did fantastic work."
