Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
I assisted the student with his vocabulary and oversaw a draft of a script he was writing. He also did some other research on his own on the computer for his science class and I assisted him with questions that he had. He did a great job today!
The student and I reviewed his homework. He had a cloze assignment for Science about gravity to complete. He also had two math assignments-- test corrections and a worksheet. We went over the test corrections and discussed how to solve the problems. His math included properties, adding and subtracting mixed numbers, unit rate, and problem solving. He also had me review his reading assignment, which was done correctly.
The student completed her homework and we reviewed last night's homework. She did well on all the concepts we covered when she actually thought about the problem and didn't just guess an answer. We will work more on this tomorrow.
We had an introductory session and discussed the student's goals and her current challenges. We also went over some common grammatical mistakes that I often see in work emails, and explained that work emails should be effective and concise. We are going to start meeting at her office.
I went over parametric curves with the student, going over computing net displacement. In addition, we discussed the area enclosed by polar curves, working problems. She has a good understanding of how to set up and compute these areas.
It was nice meeting you and working through some of the practice problems. Please let me know if you have any questions about the material we covered or would like some additional study materials. I would recommend doing some practice problems on the website for now. I'll also send you a personalized practice problem set based on the results of your diagnostic exam. Overall, I thought you did really well on the English and science problems that we covered. I didn't notice any major weaknesses. I know the test is timed, so you will have a bit more pressure, but reading the passage carefully will allow you to answer the questions more quickly and confidently.
