Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our last session, we focused on vocab so it would be fresh in her mind for the test on Saturday. We also briefly reviewed her strategies for all of the test sections and completed a little bit of practice in each section. I am confident that she will meet her goals for the SSAT."
"We continue to work on Vocabulary during our session. We have been using Flash Cards. As the student goes through a deck of cards, I will write down the words that he doesn't know. I show him how he can break the word down using roots, prefixes, or suffixes. He will study that list and we will work through the list again at the start of the next session."
"We reviewed test rules and format. We spent most of our time reviewing geometry concepts, arithmetic, and algebraic operations. The student has not yet covered much of the math content for the tests in her math class, so I've been trying to teach her shortcuts and guessing strategies for tougher concepts. I also had her work through practice problems for a humanities and science RC passage and she got a chance to work every type of RC test question. I sent a follow up email with math and RC practice resources for her to work between our sessions."
