Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Great session today. She is a quick learner. Practice more AP style multiple choice questions. Went over skills like eliminate wrong answers and choosing the BEST of the remaining answers. Also, focused on what the question is asking and restating question in own words."
"The student and I went over DBQs again this week. She has one due during the middle of next week. I was hoping to go over it with her, but we are out of hours. Assuming we get more hours, we will have an editing session. I helped her draw comparisons in her DBQ assignment asking her to compare and contrast two different topics. She still needs to work on deep analysis of a given document. She is improving but needs to participate more in our Q&A sessions to get more out of it."
"The student has good substance in his essays. His formatting and paragraph use have improved and he diligently cites sources. He does have some trouble connecting his sources and turning a summary into an argument. We worked on this in his essays today and will continue next session. I also gave the student a sheet of multiple choice questions to answer by next session. I want to make sure that he will be able to handle the multiple choice element of his AP test as well as the essay."
