Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had completed the passage-based reading practice in her book and gotten everything correct. We spent most of the session reviewing the math diagnostic she did online. We talked about not being afraid to skip questions and come back to them, and to start writing out all the work clearly. I made sure she could do every question in the diagnostic correctly. We will continue to work on that patience in the coming months. I have asked her to do the Critical Reading practice section as well as some of the math practice from her review book. Also, since we won't be meeting for a while due to the holidays, I asked her to do the first practice test in her review book."
"The student received her PSAT results, which served to remind us of the progress she made in the last few months. We reviewed the results and questions she missed and worked on the problem areas--grammar and writing. She is better with the critical reading, but she will need to continue to work on improving her time management."
"This section we discussed and reviewed the essay that the student wrote, and I showed him how to edit and improve the wording and phrasing of his sentences so as to sound more eloquent. He wrote a spectacular concluding sentence, which was very encouraging. We then reviewed identifying sentence errors, which he was doing a good job on. I told him to keep memorizing vocabulary words, take practice tests, and write one essay daily to send to me to evaluate."
