Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we reviewed Vocabulary and Quantitative Reasoning sections of the exam. The student has gotten more confident in choosing answers and narrowing down to two answer choices. She did well in the Vocabulary section of a mini test I had given her, getting 7 out of 9 correct. Her weak area is definitely the math sections. We went over percents and how they are applied in word problems, rounding numbers and value placements, as well as basic geometry formulas and with respective math problems for practice during the session. I assigned her the rest of the diagnostic test to complete for homework and we will focus on new math concepts and reading comprehension in the bulk of the next session. She is doing well on the timing of the exam, and with reviewing and practice she will be able to answer questions with more ease."
"We continued to review and do timed practice on the math sections as we wind down. The girls are still working a little too slowly through the math questions, but we came up with a new strategy of marking in advance which questions they will attempt, so that budgeting time as they move through the test is easier."
"We did ISEE Mathematics Achievement Problems, Reading Problems, and a bit of verbal problems. The student did perfectly on reading and verbal problems. She had a bit of difficulty with the math portion, but tried hard to get through some really tough problems, which is awesome. We talked about test day strategies/timing and to stay confident throughout the test."
