Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had a great session. He has both a Chemistry test and a Math test on Wednesday so we spent our time working through the material for those tests. We talked about some strategies that he can use to study for the tests and how to think through the problems. Our next session is scheduled for Sunday at 2pm. Good luck on the tests!"
"The student and I worked on her History Research paper today. When focused, she has a very high comprehension level and is able to synthesize information quickly. Again, one of her greatest assets is her ability to push through assignments that she's not particularly excited about. As far as writing, I'm seeing improvement. We do need to work on consistency whether it means she's writing in an active voice or a passive voice. Per usual however, she's fantastic to work with."
"I made flashcards to help the student study for his vocabulary test, and today we went over the flashcards and did mock tests. He is a very good student. I gave him the password to the flashcard site, so that he can continue to use them to review. Then we went over the subjunctive. His main concern was memorizing new vocabulary and the irregular subjunctive verb forms, so this is what we concentrated on."
"We worked on history and math. The math problems were completing percentages of caloric count. We also completed more proportion completions."
"We studied more grammar. The student worked very hard in this class, and I was happy with his improvement with the last few chapters of vocabulary."
"We had another great session today--I was really proud of the student for the work he did on his Somalia project--he got a 29/30! We spent today focused on vocabulary for both social studies and English--he picked up all of the words very quickly and worked hard throughout the session."
