Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student and I went over her plan for her quantitative research. We discussed the theory she is investigating and the scales she will use to measure her variables. The study is based upon qualitative research she completed previously. There were some aspects of the model she is putting forward that are not clear, and so we discussed ways to clarify what she is researching and how best to measure the concepts. In the end, it became clear that she needs to discuss her model with her adviser before the model can be completed."
"The student and I went through the beginning part of chapter 9, to make sure that she is prepared for her quiz coming up on Monday."
"The student was good today. Today's session was over subtraction using 3 or more digits. For the next visit, we will have to revisit it, for he seemed to struggle with the borrowing aspect. I was pleased to see that he has shown improvement."
"The student and I spent the majority of the session going over cumulative problems from the chapter review for chapters 1 through 4 in her textbook. While solving the problems, we talked about test taking strategies for multiple choice problems and some things that you can do when you aren't exactly sure what to do. The student is making real progress with not making simple mistakes, and she is being more attentive to checking her work. We spent the last 20 minutes of the session covering some geometry concepts that will be on her high school placement test. The student, as usual, was highly engaged and productive."
"The student and I went over more problems from old AP tests. We covered a previous test that included piecewise functions and implicit differentiation. I've been breaking down the problems and showing him the process/logic step by step for him to be able to understand and interpret the information given on the problems. Overall, he is attentive and willing to do the work."
"We went through his exam review. He solved about 24 questions. It was about radicals and their properties. I explained to him how he has to solve each type of question. He understood how he has to do them and he was able to solve most of them by himself. He is doing well."
