Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered SAT writing - correcting grammar, identifying sentence error, verb agreement, pronouns; and SAT math - planar geometry (cones, cylinders, pyramids), quadratic equations, radicals, ratios. It was a great session, as the student is very intelligent and prepared for her prep SAT this upcoming Saturday!"
"Today was our first session. I first discussed with the student the content and percentages of coverage for each math area tested on the ACT. We then went through all of the formulas he should know for the test. With time left, we began to work on ACT math problems (a collection covering the range of what is to be expected). He struggled a bit with recalling the formulas needed for the exam, but was confident that he would remember them with time. We briefly discussed when it is best to use process of elimination or plug-in techniques for some of the more in-depth questions. This was a great start to tutoring!"
"- I gave the student a short math diagnostic that tested some of the main foundations for the math section of the SAT. - I also gave her a worksheet with 10 essential formulas that she must know for test date."
