Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished the practice test that we had started going over on Thursday. There is a lot of material that he has never seen before that we still have to work on. This includes geometry, probability shapes inscribed in other shapes, and equations for lines and circles. As we were working through the problems today, I was impressed by how quickly he picked up the material. I would explain how to do something and most times he would be able to produce the answer on his own. I think this demonstrates great ability to learn that will help him with this new material. I had him write down the processes for everything we did. This will help us as we continue through the material."
"We continued building on mathematical word problems and vocabulary. These skills have been improving, but bare mechanics could still be improved. I then created a competitive game to use to drive him into improving his skills. The game worked, as he was more meticulous in his work. I assigned some practice work to do before the next session."
"The student and I touched up some concepts in our session yesterday in preparation for her third SSAT test this morning. We looked over the scores for her 2nd test. We then focused our time on the areas that we decided to prioritize. The student worked through the better part of a practice math section, plus some follow-up problems that I wrote to work on certain concepts, and we did a lot of synonym practice, working on roots/cognates. It was a very good session."
