Recent TACHS Tutoring Session Notes
The student and I worked on reading comprehension and math today. I have been encouraging her to mark up the passages as she reads them in order to improve accuracy. She is taking my advice but finds that it slows her down somewhat. She continues to make simple mistakes on math. We will work on it.
First session. We reviewed the practice test he had completed over the weekend. Overall he did well with the content and time management. We found grammar, mechanics and synonyms to be his weaker areas. We discussed the problems and he was able to discuss his strategy for choosing a certain answer. He is very bright and seems to picks up the material quickly. We will also work on building vocabulary and reviewing spelling/ capitalization rules. Discussed strategies for each section and the overall exam. H.W.- Review first 20 vocabulary words, make sentence or create funny saying to remember the definition.

On Monday we will do a diagnostic for reading and language and go over the math section.
