Tutoring review by Alyssa in Des Plaines, IL
Today we went through the Language section of the prep book.  The student only got one wrong in the entire section and test.  Then we reviewed his answers from the math sections he had completed over the past week.  Again, only one error.  We then discussed several problems and extended a few.  Then we went over some test-taking strategies, test preparation, and anxiety-reduction.  I think he will do well!

Tutoring review by Catherine in Des Plaines, IL
The student and I began a personal grammar book that he can use as a reference during homework and studies.  We reviewed the active indicative for all four conjugations in all six tenses.  I also did a presentation on conjugating the irregular verb "possum" in all six indicative tenses.  I assigned him three synopses (with English translation) as a brief homework assignment. We had a good session, and he is a quick leaner.

Tutoring review by Malcolm in Des Plaines, IL
We finished all the material that would have been covered up to the 8th grade, so we spent most of the day just going over everything that we had previously covered to ensure he remembered everything. Next week we will begin to cover algebra with more involvement.

Tutoring review by Sara in Des Plaines, IL
Practiced writing a five-minute outline for a prompt, then turning one point into a paragraph. Reviewed math concepts (basically all of geometry and trig as outlined in the book). Tried out reading strategy again, on the humanities passage, but with more careful reading this time. Reviewed experiments and conflicting hypotheses sections of science test; practiced with a couple drills from the book.
