Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished reviewing the SAT practice test that he took last week. We reviewed all of the questions that he had trouble with. It seems like he would see a boost from reviewing some vocabulary words in his time before the test. We reviewed his essay as well and I gave him some suggestions as to how he can give more concrete examples. We then worked on the writing skills portion of the test with our remaining time. I left him with two sections to complete before our next session."
"Worked through sections of a practice SAT, including outlining a response to a sample writing prompt and multiple choice reading, math, and writing sections. Explained and demonstrated how to solve problems the students had trouble with, and noted strategies and common test tricks as they came up."
"The student is extremely motivated to start college applications next semester. I sat down with her and her mother and discussed the admissions process, as well as some realistic goals for the student. She is definitely more analytical than intuitive, so we will need to concentrate on the verbal sections. She seems amiable and diligent, and I am excited to work with her this semester!"
