Woo hoo! I love the days that the scores come back in. Congratulations to all my students!

C. wanted to pull up her math score. So we spend 3 hours of tutoring working on math and 1 hour working on writing. She pulled up her math score from a 580 (70th percentile) to a 630 (82nd percentile) and also increased her writing score by 90 points – from a 590 (79th percentile) to a 680 (94th percentile.)

M. needed to get a combined math and critical reading score of 1100 in order to qualify for a scholarship. She was 40 points short on her October test. In 5 hours of tutoring, we focused primarily on math. On the this test she got a 1140, an 80 point increase from where she started. She raised her math score from a 510 (48th percentile) to a 590 (72nd percentile.)

D. also needed to work in his math score. With 7 hours of tutoring, he pulled up his math score by 140 points – from a 480 (38th percentile) to a 620 (80th percentile.)

F. wanted to increase her score across the board. We spend just one session together (2 hours.) She raised her scores by 200 points – writing from a 570 (75 percentile) to a 610 (84 percentile); reading from a 520 (56 percentile) to a 630 (86 percentile); and math from a 540 (58 percentile) to a 590 (72 percentile.)

B., who has a real weakness in math, wanted to pull up her math score. Despite lots of work on her part, and 2 hours of tutoring, her math score dropped by 10 points – from a 570 (66th percentile) to a 560 (64th percentile.)
