Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We focused mainly on going over the full length test that she took on her own. We went over one math section. We went from question to question basically establishing methods to solve the problems presented to her as well as strategies for guessing. She picked up on most of the questions quickly and it was clear her nerves got to her because she got a lot of questions incorrect when she was taking the test, but answered them correctly when I pushed her to answer them during our session. We will have to work on this in future sessions."
" We worked on the verbal reasoning and reading comprehension portions of the entrance exam practice test. We did 10 synonym questions, 15 sentence completion questions, and 2 reading comprehension passages. The student did very well on the sentence completion and on the reading comprehension. The hardest section for her was synonyms, as she didn't know all of the words. I encouraged her to also re-read the reading passages twice if she has enough time during the test. I am confident that the student will do a great job. I also gave her some vocabulary words to look up."
"This the first session I had with the students in preparation for the entry exam. We went over a good portion of the math problems generated by the practice test based on each one's diagnostic results. They were both quick to pick up on new concepts. I will be emailing a list of the new concepts we went over, as we practiced on whiteboards and those things are good to have a record of."
