Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We started off with a vocabulary game to get the student more engaged in the study session. We practiced root words and I believe it was helpful. We then went over a lot of math practice problems over the next hour which was very productive for her. It seems as if her strong suit is vocabulary words and some of the essential math concepts are a bit difficult. I gave her the usual homework"
"The student and I worked on math today for a change of pace. His accuracy on math is fairly high. He was much more focused today."
"We spent the first part of the session doing a practice test for the math section of the SAT in order to gauge the student's abilities in this subject. We then focused on math vocabulary, and problems involving basic operations with fractions. In future sessions, we will be focusing heavily on fractions and percents."
"I discussed the student's vocabulary and math homework. Then she read select pages in her science and history books. Next, I worked with the other student on his math and vocabulary homework."
"The student is getting along very well in the vocabulary assignment. He did great with the reading passages I tested him on, and they were slightly above his grade level. He got more questions correct than I thought he would."
"The student and I worked on her Algebra I review worksheet today, which I checked over. We talked a little bit about maximizing efficiency and skipping unnecessary steps. The few errors she had tended to focus on small errors (forgetting to write a negative, etc.). The one error she had that might be conceptual is elimination. We also continued to work on a review of her short story for English."
