Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our session went very well. After covering time management strategies, we jumped right into English and Science practice, honing in on specific issues he had with grammar and science questions. His percentages indicate he is making steady progress and I look forward to our next session!"
"The student is an eager and perceptive student. We did an overview of the test, basic strategies and talked about my approach to tutoring. We talked quite a bit about the essay, which seems to be of particular concern. We worked through a short reading & a long reading section, then parts of a main Writing section. I left him the rest of the Writing to do before next meeting."
"The student completed a practice test on Correcting Sentences, studied root word based Vocabulary, identified Passage Based Reading strategies, and studied vocabulary flashcards. She did a wonderful job. For homework, she was tasked to complete a full SAT practice test in her booklet, finish the Root Word Vocab Quizzes, study her flashcards, and work on her Grammar Packets."
"In this session, the student and I worked on the writing section. We practiced identifying the topic that the SAT was asking about in each question (e.g. grammar, word choice, or style), and talked a little bit more in depth about a few grammar topics, such as identifying complete thoughts."
"In this session, we went solely over the math section of the SAT, focusing primarily on word problems. The student understands the mathematical concepts related to these problems. Overall, she's doing quite well with most of the math concepts, but she could definitely work on familiarizing herself with busier, more complicated math problems, as these are more likely to psych her out. We will continue to work on this."
"In this session, we worked on parametric equations, probabilities and combinations, matrix multiplications, quartiles and interquartile range, and trigonometry. The student seems to be very comfortable with the concepts and understands them well and quickly. I recommended that he buy a practice book with more practice tests so that he could better prepare for his test in October."
