Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over all of the topics of the SAT subject test in chemistry. Student was very knowledgeable in most of the topics, as she had just taken the AP chemistry test. I instructed her to do practice exams tonight so we can go over them tomorrow. She only needs extra reassurance on the nuances of specific topics. She is very intelligent and a good student. I think the session left her much more confident in her understanding."
"Yesterday I met with the student to work on the SAT. Our focus this time was math, and she is definitely doing fine with it. The first section we did was a bit challenging but she did a good job with it and was able to correct most of her own mistakes (only one was particularly new to her, so I spent time explaining that). After working through another math section (this one even more successful) we switched gears and focused on reading. I had chosen some good critical reading sections, one of which we had time to work over. As usual the vocabulary seems to be the hardest part of that, as she has a critical mind and can answer more challenging reading questions. I'm confident in her ability to get over 2000 on this test. She knows what she needs to do to improve her essay score, and she can definitely do better on the reading score (the last test seemed to have an inordinate number of hard reading questions). Her math score was very good last time and will be this time as well. Best of luck to her on the test tomorrow!"
"We covered a practice SAT section (verbal, critical reading) and studied more vocabulary. He has a lot of extra practice."
