Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I went over the vocabulary section of the prep book. We went over every prefix, suffix, and root word and found words that contained all of them. Then we talked about how he should look over the list of words they gave him and define those he knows before his test Saturday. Next, we discussed general test-taking strategies, and I tried to boost his confidence a bit. We will continue meeting after he takes his test."
"The student will be taking the placement exam again at a flex session at his school on Monday, so I will be meeting with him for an additional session on Saturday. Today we worked on math again, doing very short timed trials of one to three practice problems and attempting to focus in on his typical errors that he needs to learn to be alert for."
"We covered testing strategy and practice problems relating to Verbal and Reading. I took note of the student's ability to deduce the meaning of complex words to gauge ability. The student struggled the most with vocabulary-based questions that featured words without a discernible prefix/suffix. I left the student to review any word lists he has as practice to focus on that."
