Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused on Writing, discussing misplaced modifiers and comma splices. The student is scoring around the 700 range in Writing. We also spent a brief amount of time drilling sentence completion. The plan is for him to work on Writing individually."
"Revised CSA the student did for homework; focused on other aspects of writing section; worked on learning new vocab. Covered questions from HW that she found difficult. Discussed test strategies throughout. She is very bright and keen to adapt and absorb new information to be applied on SAT v/w."
"Today, we went over factoring quadratic polynomials, which is a large part of the ACT Math section and is very important. We tried using the box method but the student preferred a simpler and faster way of approaching factoring that made more sense to her, so we learned a couple of different methods of factoring quadratic polynomials. She grasped the concept very quickly which was excellent. We also did some work in geometry, covering the Pythagorean theorem, the definition of a hypotenuse, the area of a triangle, acute and obtuse angles, isosceles triangles and went on to learn the volume of quadrilaterals."
