Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on world history. The student has online tools for the textbook that I recommend he start using to reinforce his reading. He started a notepad file to list the words with which he is unfamiliar. I then provided the student with an article discussing the importance of taking notes while reading in order to improve comprehension and retention. Overall this was a solid session."
"The student and I skipped ahead a little bit in her textbook. We moved past a couple of chapters dealing with ancient Chinese, Indian, and American cultures; and I plan on blending those chapters in with later discussions of those particular cultures. For today's session, we covered the chapter on the rise of Islam and the expansion of the early Caliphates, as well as the Byzantine empire. She has started to show some reluctance in answering questions, not because she doesn't know the answer (she almost always does), but because she admits to doubting herself. I hope be able to offer her more encouragement in future sessions."
"The student answered five response questions on the Industrial Revolution and its impact. We discussed his World History final study guide and the concepts covered for the final."
