Tutoring review by Michaela in Alexandria, VA
Checked the student's approximate score, and assuming she would have scored about the same on the third section of the math, she would have gotten in the 600 range for her score. Awesome! This next session I want to really emphasize angles, since she's still struggling so much with them. Other than that, we'll do a broad overview of everything we've talked about so she's ready for the test on Saturday.
