Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we started with reviewing past vocabulary. The student is doing very well and I encouraged her to keep up with the flashcards and write sentences instead of simply memorizing definitions. We then worked on Practice Test 6 in the big blue book - Sections 2,3 and 10. Today she did well on the math and writing sections but needed help with reading comprehension. I encouraged her to try taking an ACT practice test because I felt that her reading comprehension issues are related more to the style of the SAT than her knowledge base. She will also practice the essay section this week."
"Today, the student and I did a few more practice prompts for the Essay section. Afterwards, we went through all the Critical Reading and Writing questions that she got wrong on her practice test. Her SAT score range rose about 80 points from last week, so she is definitely improving. I definitely recommend she continue to take as many practice tests as possible for homework."
"Today, we started off with details on the SAT test and then exhausted the geometry topics. We reviewed planar and solid geometry and then went on to linear functions and the concepts of perpendicular and parallel lines and how they relate to slope. I have not yet given extra practice for these concepts, but I will by tomorrow."
