Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I was so glad that you called tonight and that we were able to put our brains together and figure out how we can get the student's assignments done on time! I'll see you and him at school on Friday at 4pm. Working together, I'm sure we can help him to finish this course successfully! Please call me if there are any further changes."
"Thursday: We started off going over some questions she had about the quiz she took on Wednesday. We practiced a some acidic redox reactions to review material from Tuesday's session. We then transitioned into Electrochemistry - Nernst equation, redox reactions under standard and nonstandard conditions, drawing galvanic/voltaic electrochemical cells, identifying the anode/cathode, identifying direction of electron flow, identifying the species being reduce and oxidized."
"Day before the test, we conducted a quick review of English and Science before working on Reading and Math, which the student felt needed the most attention. Administered time-adjusted practice sessions of each section; student's scores were at or above his expectations. I believe he will perform admirably on the ACT."
"The student and I went over his grades and the items he was missing and we discussed a plan to make them up. We created a new study guide for Chapter 5. Then we viewed Chapter 4 vocabulary. First, I quizzed him verbally, then I wrote the English words and asked him to write the German to test his spelling etc. Then, because he didn't have his Chapter 4 study guide, I created 3 separate sheets - one for 'der' words, one for 'die' words, and one for 'das' words. Then, I said the English word and he wrote the German words on the correct sheets. Then we went back and added the English word in the second column. Lastly, I re-quizzed him verbally and he got all but one correct. He had trouble spelling and saying two words, so I created a sheet for him to write the two words 10 times each. I also showed him how the pronunciation was broken down by syllables so that it was easier for him to say and spell."
"The student and I worked on understanding the rules of punctuation and capitalization. He needs some practice with this. We also went through multiplying and dividing numbers by factors of ten. We then added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided decimal numbers. He picked this up after he wrote everything down."
"Today, the student completed project 3 for her ICS 32 class. She finished by defining all of the output functions and experimenting with the elevation function and program flow. She is wonderfully increasing her understanding of Python and is able to navigate the complex structures and concepts we are now starting to use. I look forward to working with her again to go over some of the more advanced processes we used today and to work on her next project!"
