Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued working on practice sections from the SAT prep book during this session, primarily focusing on the math sections. She completed three timed portions within our session and we reviewed the answers to each of the problems that she missed. She is doing very well in the multiple choice questions, and in each section she missed one or two of these questions. Afterward we went through each problem and focused on how to solve them with the information given. She's showing progress so we will continue to work on these sections in the next session on Monday. Furthermore, we will put more emphasis on the fill in the blank questions."
"I met with Student 1 and went over the essay. It was thus far very successful and well-written. I had little to change about what he had written so far but encouraged him to continue and provided a few tactics to make sure he completed the essay successfully. We went over an essay multiple choice section that seemed particularly loaded with difficult words, using the opportunity to work on vocab. Then, I met with Student 2. We did the same vocabulary section and I was very impressed with her comprehension of the difficult words. Then, we worked on a math multiple choice section. Math is more difficult for her but with a little prompting she can solve most problems entirely on her own. I was impressed with her understanding of difficult concepts."
"This session focused on arithmetic concepts tested on the math section of the SAT. The student reviewed these concepts using the SAT prep book. The review seemed helpful, because she has not done problems like these in awhile. I gave her a worksheet of 17 practice problems to do on her own and sent her a document to read that has a more thorough review of arithmetic concepts."
