Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did some practice problems from every section of the assessment. Started with the English passage: 15 questions. Then the student did a few math questions. We went through a lot of the math together. Reviewed simplifying algebraic expressions. Good with solving for x algebraically. Could use some practice with square roots and cube roots. Good with probability and data analysis, slope intercept form. Needs to review sine, cosine, and tangent. Did one reading passage on her own (10 questions). Went over some strategies: reading the questions first and using these to figure out what to focus on, making notes on the passage. Did one passage in the science section and did pretty well with this. I will send her a link to complete some online assessment diagnostics before we meet again on Monday."
"This was our last session together, so we tried to wrap up the work we had already been doing. We worked through a reading comprehension section the student completed for homework and went over missed questions. He has shown great improvement on the reading sections. We also worked through a factoring practice test the student completed. He missed only 3 out of 31 questions, which is fantastic. I'm really pleased with his improvement here. Finally, we ended the session by reviewing an essay the student completed for homework. The essay was a fantastic improvement for him. Had I been scoring it, I would have given him a (5). He used specific examples, maintained flow, had great word choice, and had a really solid intro and conclusion. Very impressed! Since this was our last session, I let him know that I'd be available via email if he has any questions before his test date!"
"The student completed two reading sections and one science section. He got everything right! He's been doing great."
