Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student one and I worked primarily on math and were able to get through the majority of her assignment on graphing linear equations and solving systems of equations by substitution. Student two completed some language arts assignments, and we worked through some math assignments as well. She is also working on solving systems of linear equations by substitution. The girls both have a science quiz coming up, and both of the girls still had several assignments to work on by the end of our session. I told them that if they would like, I could come the next day to help them finish some of the work and prepare for their quiz."
"I coached the student through her current Math homework on angles and angles sums of various polygons. She continues to do well with these recent geometry concepts. She had good and relevant notes readily available and got them out without prompting from me. After finishing the Math assignment, I checked for updated online grades with her. I gave some input about formatting and slogan-making as she made the poster, and I didn't leave until everything was printed, glued, paper-clipped, etc."
"I made sure to give her a good start on each concept of her English and Math homework. I asked that she email me with any questions she has as she finishes up the work over the next two days."
"Tonight, the student and I focused on her upcoming final in English. We started by reviewing the vocabulary terms that will be on the test. She read sets of terms and then quizzed herself on what she just reviewed. After she completed a couple of sections, I would quiz her on the words in random order. Then, she would do several more sets and then I would quiz her, adding in words from previous sections. Then, we discussed the literary terms that were to be tested. For each term, she would give me the definition and then examples from the texts that she read this semester. Lastly, we discussed themes, plot, and characters in the books from the semester. After our session, she was going to review the quotes on her previous tests and quizzes."
"This week, the student and I completed a social studies reading comprehension packet on Memorial Day. He read the passages to himself first, and then we worked together to answer the questions. We then worked on his spelling words for the week. At the end of the session, we did a timed free write in which he was able to write about his favorite food. He loved doing this, and we will continue doing that for the rest of our sessions."
"The student and I had a pretty good day yesterday. She read a chapter in her History book and then had questions from the book to answer. We talked about her answers and I challenged her on a few of them. I've asked her to bring her planner on Tuesday with all final assignments and tests written for the rest of the year so we can talk about how to approach her remaining schoolwork."
