Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has some confidence issues with these tests, so we need to work on recognizing correct answers. She seems to do better in math than reading, so we will need to distribute our time accordingly. We will meet on Tuesday, and I asked her to take the CR test before then."
"We continued to focus on the math and writing sections, doing mostly practice problems from the SAT book in order to get exposed to actual questions. The student did really well and handled most problems, especially the writing section, with ease. He only needed some brushing up on the more subtle errors (hidden false comparisons, idiomatic prepositions). He should continue to practice the math strategy with the PDF I previously sent as well as do at least one more math and writing section from the SAT book."
"Concepts covered: SAT Reading Comprehension sentence completion (went over sample problems and strategies to tackle) SAT Math - did 10 practice problems and walked through the difficult ones together. We spent a lot of time on a problem about triangles, so I'm thinking that can be a focus for this week. At the beginning of the session, we talked about goals and scheduled time in the week for the student to take practice tests. I will email her later tonight with the schedule/timetable we put together and the homework I would like for her to do before our next appointment. The most important thing for her is to take a complete SAT test in one sitting, and see how she does and where we need to focus our energies. Great start though!"
