"After doing a warm-up math exercise, we went over the practice math section I had assigned for homework. She let me know that time management during this section was an issue, so in addition to going over the missed problems, I helped go over some helpful time-saving testing tips. In general, she was missing questions because she ran out of time, rather than lack of knowledge, so I helped her work on being more time efficient without making errors. For homework I assigned her to do a practice verbal section, take a 5 minute break, and then do another practice math section so that she can better practice time management as well as switching subjects quickly."
"Today the student did really well! We started by going over the end of the practice test from yesterday. Once again she was able to identify her mistakes quickly when we started going over them, so that's a good sign. Then I had her do the word problem section. She showed improvement from yesterday. These problem sets have helped me figure out how to guide the rest of our sessions before the test. I'd like to focus on exponents, probability, and geometry especially over the next week, then work on some test strategy. We will continue to work hard to get as much understanding of the material as possible."
"The student takes his exam on Saturday. He will be writing one final practice essay before our last session. We have concentrated mostly on his reading comprehension and verbal, he is showing improvement. He continues to show strength in the math sections of the exam."
