Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on building vocabulary today. We went through some assessment words and worked on putting them in context so if she saw them again she might know how to put them in a sentence. We also worked on the math section and discussed function notation and graphing shifts. We will need to review this again next week to make sure the concept was understood, and will probably do a review unit on factoring as well. Overall, she is making great progress and seems to understand the material."
"I was honestly impressed how perfectly the student approached each problem. Having a math class this year seems to help too. We also reviewed some reading techniques, and she caught on to those quickly. She's taking a full exam before we meet next so we can pinpoint any content questions, but as far as strategy goes, she is right where she should be."
"After completing the grammar lessons, I was very eager to see how the student would perform on an actual Writing section. First, we went through a section together so he could familiarize himself with the kinds of questions on the assessment. Then, I timed him so he could complete a section on his own. After the Writing practice, we did some essay practice. We outlined two essays together, which I think will help him observe the proper way to delineate his argument. I asked him to do one essay for homework and time himself. We then went over a vocabulary list I drew up (containing about 70 words) of the most common test words."
