Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we decided to combine the skills we had been practicing - passage mapping, skimming, and strategic answer evaluation - into a timed mini-simulation of one complete test section. The student sped through the section, completing every question with only one wrong answer and one left blank! Although not out of step with her overall good performance and quick self-correction, that was a pretty big win."
"In this session we continued to practice for the SAT, which is in a week. Overall the student is performing very well, missing only one or two questions per section. If he can do that well on the actual test he will definitely hit his score goals. One thing that he should be focused on in this last week in intellectual endurance. By doing full practice tests, he should be able to see how tough it is to stay heavily concentrated for almost 4 hours straight. Still I have high confidence he will do very well."
"The student and I went through problems she missed on her homework assignment and looked at strategies for each. We practiced system of equations word problems and looked at how to pull specific phrases in critical reading. We also reviewed vocab for the test. She will work on timed sections, including an essay, for next time."
