Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued working on math today. She's almost done with the state test. We moved on to spelling. I have a list of challenging words that we're going to start working on every week. I'm also keeping a list of the words she spelled incorrectly, so we can go back and keep quizzing her on those."
"Gave math minute worksheet for arithmetic practice. Quizzed geometry and algebra. The student has good retention of materials. Went over quantitative reasoning packet, no major problems, just touch on simple algebra. HW: last 5 problems and essay.
"The student and I studied for her college algebra test on Thursday. Topics covered included working with exponents, factoring polynomials, and long division of polynomials. The student will call me after her test to set up our next session, which will be sometime after March 19."
"We talked about what the student found challenging when she took the SAT in November. Based on this, we mainly focused on writing multiple choice and reading sections. We discussed specific grammatical principles (to be expanded on in future sessions) as well as overall test-taking strategies."
"We began the tutoring session reviewing a science worksheet on motion, forces and energy. The student had to construct a line graph and plot the speed of an ant in time and distance. We continued with reading homework. He read chapter 6 in the novel titled, "Journey" by Patricia Mac Lachlan. After reading the chapter, he answered comprehension questions and made self-to-text connections. The English homework took us until the end of today's tutoring session. It's a pleasure to work with him. I enjoy working with him. He is a pleasure."
"Today we covered the section ASP.NET and database connectivityQuery from a database was not that easily understood by the student. He had a great attitude toward learning. It was easy to explain the material to him. We included the strategy to first complete an essay assignment showing the methods of database connectivity. This session was a win."
