Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed strategies for each section and practiced each section a bit. I suggested that she spend no more than 30 seconds on a problem before guessing and moving on, since all the problems are worth the same amount."
"Continued with SAT prep, focus on math and critical reading. The student is doing very well on the writing section. Common errors: idiom, passive vs active voice. We concentrated on math in class this time, completing two timed section since we had so much time left over after checking her mostly correct homework."
"Today we discussed the science section. I think the student has a good grasp of this information and is going to do rather well. We also went over some questions he had regarding math. For the next session, he is going to take some benchmark tests in math and science and we will go over them."
"We went through ~10 problem solving questions that the student had trouble with. We focused on problems involving % increase and probability. We went over a few questions from her stats midterm on probability. We also discussed strategies for tackling critical reasoning questions and went through four of them in order of difficulty."
"The student and I worked through the basics of graphing ellipses. He seemed to understand everything about them and I made him a step by step guide on how to graph them. Hyperbolas are probably coming next."
