Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued our study of geometry. It is a vocab intensive chapter, so we spent class time reviewing vocab, updating flashcards, etc. So far the student is doing very well with math concepts."
"The student was very attentive today. We spent the first hour of our session going through her vocabulary cards and finished nearly two units during this time (she had a few cards left from Unit 8). Since she is most familiar with Unit 9, we decided that she could study those on her own. We then reviewed a handout on the Panama Canal that she suspects she will have a pop quiz on tomorrow. She annotated the worksheet and I quizzed her on specific facts from it afterwards. Her ability to recall information in such a short amount of time was impressive! She not only remembered dates, but even minute details of the Panama Canal's history. Overall, great session."
"We worked on an extra-credit paragraph on the origin of rice. We went over research techniques and made sure all the assignment requirements were met. We also continued to work on geometry angle problems from the seventh-grade math book. The student is getting the hang of these and starting to have fun with them."
"The student and I had another good session today. We focused primarily on his English assignment, but we also covered a number of other subjects. It sounds like he had a bit of a mix-up on his physics lab, but we cleared that up as well. His writing is stronger every time I work with him."
"We talked about the student's eco-column project, and she worked through a lab report on it. Specifically, we focused on limiting resources and the different levels of producers/consumers in a food chain."
"Today was our first session together. I really enjoyed working with the student. We talked about what he's had trouble with in the past and what his goals are in regards to working with me. We discussed working on focus and efficiency. Today, we accomplished his math and Spanish homework as well as studying for his Spanish and bio quizzes. He was amazed we got so much done! Great work and focus."
