Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student and I spent most of our time on math. We reviewed concepts from last week (dividing with fractions and proportions), and also did review on geometry concepts we covered a while ago (area, perimeter, properties of triangles, supplementary angles). The student did great on this review! We then worked on some practice tests. I timed her, and she worked on a practice math section (13 problems in 15 minutes), so she could pace herself accordingly. She did very well with the timing. After she finished, we discussed the problems she missed. In math, we will continue to work on helping the student understand the steps necessary for completing problems. I also continue to help her practice important test-taking tricks, like moving the decimal point when dividing or multiplying by a multiple of ten. Next week, we will review some more important math test strategies. The student and I also worked on verbal. She did part of a practice section (5 problems in 10 minutes), to practice the pacing. Again, she did well with the time. Her educated guesses were quite strong -- a sign that all of her hard work on vocabulary is making a difference. In these last few weeks before the test, I will continue to emphasize vocabulary with the student."
"Today we reviewed vocabulary, sample questions, and a practice test. I then assigned the student some homework to solidify these concepts. Overall it was a productive session."
"Finished Reading Comprehension #3 and Verbal #1. Good progress. We worked on time to make sure that the student will be able to complete the test."
