Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over a variety of material from chapter 13 of his book, along with some information from chapter 15 that he needed to use to write his essay that was due the following day. In chapter 13, we discussed the election of John Adams in 1824 and his presidency, followed by the election of Andrew Jackson. We discussed political views of both presidents, and how their views affected the public. He and I also had a discussion about his previous test grades and how we could improve them. We went over the previous test questions in order to get a better understanding of what type of questions may be on future tests. We also tried to find a way to alternate study habits in order to get a better grade on the next test."
"During this session we covered Chapter 14, which focused on the development of a fully national economy with diverse forms of social structure and a complex interweaving and dependence of different goods and services,"
"We went over one of the student's prior assignments, and we talked about different ways that she could improve her grade on similar exams in the future. We also talked about general approaches to writing essays."
"The student and I went over his math and English homework, of which his motivation to delve deeper and try to understand is truly wonderful."
"Today we went over the Unit for the student's test that focuses on World War II. As usual, he took notes during our discussions, and he is working hard to prepare for his upcoming final test."
"The student and I discussed the Western Expansion and the implications of this. We spoke briefly about stocks vs bonds and how this had an impact on the sale of the Louisiana Purchase. We assessed maps from the late 1700s and early 1800s and analyzed the division of territories. We also looked at maps from the 1500s of Native American cultures and how this would affect Lewis and Clark. We then read a statement from Lewis and the student answered some questions analyzing the meaning. We plan on meeting again next Tuesday after school."
