Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the format of the admissions test, going over general test-taking strategies and brainstorming how we can tailor that to our personal needs for each section. In math, we covered ratios, percentages, and proportions, making sure to understand concepts in fraction manipulations, solving for proportions, and setting up units. I assigned a diagnostic test, and several practice sections through email. We'll be going over the writing section, new math topics, and some usage and mechanics for critical reading next time."
"The student and I worked on his reading comprehension today. While his math and science abilities seem to be well advanced past his age group, his reading level is more in line with his age. We spent a long time focusing on making inferences from the passage and highlighting important elements in each paragraph."
"The student and I took a look at her PSAT scores today and went over the questions she missed. We also focused on SAT Math and Writing, looking specifically at the Sentence Correction portion of the SAT because she lost most of her points there. A few practice sections are assigned for our next session."
