Not understanding the question. Like if they use the word infer or inference on the question, she may not know what it means and so she doesn't understand what the question is about.

She has a VERY difficult time actually inferring anything which is why vocabulary is extremely hard for her to assimilate.

She had a very hard time learning to read and comprehend. She still has low comprehension but what do you do to improve this as a college student?

She took the reading portion of the TSI (cc entrance/placement test) three times before she passed it. She passed the writing section on the first try. She's made As and in two college English classes, psychology, medical terminology, ethics, and college algebra. I think this history teacher is just really hard. But I think it's too late at this point to really remediate vocab unless anyone knows something very specific to college vocab common on tests.
