Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I was really proud of the student today because he came to our session fully prepared. Yesterday we picked an assignment so he would know exactly what reading he needed to complete. The journal article was quite long and covered a great deal of information. I could tell that the student had retained the information from his reading because he was able to answer the questions and articulate the answers with more ease than on past assignments. I was also happy when he was able to answer a question by using a great example from his life. The student has 5 days until our next session so we laid out what assignments he could do on his own and what assignments we would save for next week."
"This session we went over the second half of a practice ACT math test, We reviewed some material-- mainly trigonometry (use of sine, cosine, tangent and the implications of the sine wave), geometry (2D and 3D), and proportions-- and discussed some strategies like replacing abstract ideas and variables with concrete numbers that we can work with, plugging possible solutions into the calculator, and simplifying or 'translating' the wording of the problem. Next session we will look at a little more math and then move on to the science section."
"In this session, we focused more on the problem areas for the student. We did several passages on reading & worked on time & comprehension strategies. We then focused on English, Math & the writing section. I've assigned the student to do a complete practice test with writing before our next session so we can see how he performs overall, especially in regards to his mental stamina."
