Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered the New Deal and FDR's presidential legacy. She would first read the information then answer short answer/essay questions pertaining to those sections. It was helpful when I gave a short summary of the readings after she read them. We discussed the use of flashcards in preparing for her final exam; I sent her the link to a stack of 500 U.S. History flashcards for her to go through over the next two months. I assigned her to complete the readings and assignments on World War II and the Cold War by our next tutoring session."
"Reviewed client's work on her research paper since our last meeting. She emailed me her outline with additions. I emailed her essay structure to help her get started with paragraphs. We discussed how an economy works since her paper resolves on how trains impacted the economy. I emailed her a video on economics 101. We discussed getting primary sources and what they are. I recommended that she go to the library to look for sources and not Google primary sources. I will touch base with her this week, to see what she has done."
"He did not have much new material to cover for today's session given that they just started a new chapter. The topic is World War I. We thoroughly reviewed each sub-section, including key terms and major events. We also discussed at length the global context of war and why such wars come to be in the first place. Lastly, I checked in with him about his matching quiz (which we studied for the previous week). I advised him to keep a running list of key terms, emphasizing that early note-taking can ease the stress of cramming the night before. He appeared open to the idea and agreed to make an effort to do so."
