Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed some math concepts: trigonometric functions, geometry. Also continued our discussion of test taking strategies."
"My first session with the student went so well that his mom contacted me this evening to let me know his positive review. He and I took some time to introduce ourselves and to talk about his grades and skills. He is in some advanced classes, including History. He shared with me that he feels he is a stronger writer for History than he is for English. We explored why he feels this way and came to the conclusion that he does better writing for History because he is able to prepare for the prompt and he has a very structured format for writing based upon the type of prompt assigned. In History he mainly writes DBQs, Compare/Contrast essays, and essays on a change in content over time. I gave him a fairly easy prompt to assess his writing and he did very well. He stayed on topic and gave plenty of details. We discussed this piece of writing and then I gave him a grammar pre-test."
"The student and I met for an hour this morning. We went over general problems that are given on the military exam. The topics include simplifying radicals, fractions, and probability. We plan on meeting on Wednesday mornings starting at 10 a.m."
