Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I went over a math test she took on her own. The student and I had a lovely morning session going over the questions she had. Overall, she did very well on the test. We discussed a few strategies for test day like answering all questions, eliminating answers that are equivalent, and marking questions that are difficult and may need to be revisited. It was a wonderful session and I'm convinced she will do great on her assessment in a few weeks. It's truly been a pleasure working with her and her family."
"The student and I went over the assessment Math problems she was taking the following Saturday. We went through a packet she got of a past assessment test from her teacher."
"The student reviewed for his social studies test and worked on an assessment math quiz consisting of 13 questions. We identified the areas in math that he needs more work in before his assessment testing."
"On Tuesday, the student and I worked on non-calculator questions from her AP calculus practice packet. She is beginning to be able to make the first step/connection on problems, whereas before, she would not know where to start. When she takes her time, she is able to verbalize what she is doing and why she is doing it, but she is still extremely self conscious. She is more proficient at this than she thinks, and with more practice and confidence, I feel she will do well on the AP."
"We had a great session. We reviewed the student's reading worksheets. She read me her story and asked me her comprehension questions. I answered them so she could review what she did correct and incorrect. We also reviewed her history. Finally, we reviewed her reading comprehension as she has an upcoming state test next week. She did really well tonight."
"We went over logs, exponents, and log rules. I made sure the student was able to solve a harder problem that he hasn't encountered yet. I asked him to look for patterns before I gave him the answer. He was really observant and made a connection between logs and trig functions."
