Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered spelling, grammar, sentence making, and multiplication. The student some trouble spelling a few words, but learned them after we made sentence with those particular words. I'll give him some worksheets to help him. His Math is going very well. He is understanding the steps in long multiplication and memorizing his times tables. I have no concerns from this session."
"The student's mother purchased multiple workbooks for him, and this is extremely helpful! We were able to skip ahead a few lessons in math and start with place value. We also reviewed multi-digit addition and subtraction that required regrouping. Then, we moved on to the reading workbook. We started at the beginning of this workbook because it has been hard to get a true assessment of his reading ability. I assigned him homework in reading, writing and math."
"Student A: We covered the opening sentence in an essay, and developing and organizing information for an essay prompt. The student's attitude was very positive. I taught her about picturing things or ideas in her mind and then transferring those onto paper. There are no concerns from this session. Student B: We covered the double bubble map for organizing to compare and contrast topics. I then started to teach opening and closing sentences to write a composition. The student's attitude towards new learning is very positive. Both students are fast learners, it is a joy working with them!"
"The student and I had a pretty good session. We talked about graphing exponential functions and logarithmic functions. We also worked through several problems having to do with growth functions. In regards to physics, we talked about pendulums, harmonic motion, gravity, and springs."
"The student and I reviewed her physics assignment today. We focused mostly on the electrostatic forces and trigonometry. She struggles a little bit with trigonometry but we were able to resolve the problem by the end of the session. We also discussed the formula of Coulomb's equation and how charges interact with each other."
"We began the Microsoft Excel tutorial. We went over basic parts of excel (columns, cells, rows, the ribbon, etc.), saving/sharing/exporting, adjusting/deleting/inserting columns/rows, copying/pasting/cutting/drag-drop/fill-handle, and find and replace. I introduced how to enter functions and some basic functions (sum, average, standard deviation, other operations). The student performed several calculations with data using both relative and absolute functions. Next session we plan to begin graphing."
