Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we began not only reviewing content for the upcoming AP exam but we practiced DBQs spending a significant time on document analysis and making sure the use of documents subscribes to the AP standards. For homework The student is going to write out her DBQ response and email it to me so that we may go over it and work on any weak areas."
"We spent the entire session reviewing 4 DBQs I had prepared for her (analysis of documents and possible answers to the DBQ content) as she has her last DBQ test this Thursday. She displayed her usual strong insight to the documents and had very few questions about the content notes. We strategized on possible theses to each question as well."
"The student's scores have been steadily improving- he is almost up to scoring 90% on tests which is an improvement over 70~% when we started. We covered material for his new unit on the 1920's for half the time then reviewed larger concepts and sample essay questions for the second half since the AP test is quickly approaching. The student is getting better at connecting larger concepts to each other and finding pieces of evidence to connect to those concepts, however, which is a great progress and a good skill for the AP exam."
