Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Marcello in La Mesa, CA
We covered the Science portion of the test. He scored a 23, but while we were reviewing and working through a second practice test together, he did much, much better. My guess is that he reads questions too quickly on the first go and misses/misreads key words. Seems to be doing fine on timing. Next session, we'll focus on the Writing section. We decided that the sixth and final session will be on Th 9/8 as a final review before the 9/10 exam date. If this test does not go as planned, the parents are also planning for the October test date.

Tutoring review by Michelle in La Mesa, CA
We reviewed conjugation of the present subjunctive in preparation for a test tomorrow.  I brought a quiz with the irregular verbs in the subjunctive so that the student could practice rules for stem-changing verbs and for the spelling changes in -car, -gar, -zar verbs.  He seemed well-prepared for the test.

Tutoring review by Brittany in La Mesa, CA
Today, the student and I worked on both reading comprehension and math.  I had her work through some open-ended questions and some multiple choice questions.  We talked about when certain strategies would benefit her in the math section - even the guess-and-check strategy.  We also reviewed the homework that I assigned her, which was a section of reading comprehension.  I had the student apply one more reading comprehension strategy to a section of passage-based questions
