Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent this session covering selected practice problems from all four sections of the exam. He still needs some help with vocabulary and more complex reading comprehension. I have enjoyed working with him because he remains focused and attentive throughout the duration of our meetings. I wanted to review all of the strategies that we had worked on (because this was our last meeting before the exam), so I made sure to budget some time in each section for this. I recommended completing more online verbal practice tests before actually taking the exam. I think that he has made progress for our first session, and I'm confident in his abilities."
"Today went very well with the student. We worked through a math section practice test. She did very well. We talked through the ones she got wrong and in almost every instance she was able to catch her mistake. She said she misreads questions a lot so we talked about ways to tackle that problem. I would like to work with her on speeding up a bit before the actual test. I also asked her to look over the vocabulary list that she has and to continue working on definitions so she can succeed in the verbal section."
"We met during the week on Wednesday because the ISEE is this coming Saturday. We specifically worked in English and Math sections of the test manual. I had previously emailed a copy for independent study. We also spent some time reviewing Scientific Notation and clarifying how additive and multiplicative inverses are used to isolate the variable when solving an algebraic equation. I left him with a few more general test-taking tips from a list given to him at one of our early sessions."
