Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on improving his Verbal SAT score by maximizing his time and using strategies to identify unknown vocabulary and clarify his point of view in essays. The student struggled most with questions that relate to word substitution and vocabulary. To help him, we worked on breaking down words to find common suffixes and prefixes whose meanings he can identify and which in turn help him identify the meaning of the word. We also worked on clarifying and simplifying his essays. The student's scores on the reading comprehension sections have improved---he reads more carefully. I left him with two essay questions and the challenge to be as simple, direct and clear as possible. I also left him two full Verbal SAT tests to work on."
"I gave the student some more tools for general success with English. We worked on suffixes, prefixes, and root words - with a solid knowledge of these words, he will be better able to deal with new words that come up. He seemed engaged. I encouraged him to read as much in English as he can."
"We went over the prompts for her paper and began creating a thesis, while dividing the material into a very concise outline."
