Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I worked on a set of math homework problems and a few social studies study guide problems. He also has a math quiz tomorrow, so we reviewed for that. He is making progress in leaps and bounds in algebra. He knows how to solve multi-step equations very well now."
"The student and I worked on some of the descriptive sentences that I taught him last week, and moved on to some other useful phrases to describe what he likes/owns/wants. I had him write everything out to check his spelling as well as his pronunciation."
"This was our initial session. I had the student take an un-timed practice test before our meeting. He scored a 157 which is extremely well for the first time. He was strongest in the logical reasoning and reading comprehension and weakest in the games section. We went over some basics about the test, what to expect and some general strategies and then went over some of the questions from his practice test. We worked on different approaches to diagramming the games section. Until our next session I told him to take another practice test un-timed and then take one timed since we are not going to meet for another week. I am not worried that with time he will be able to do extremely well on his exam."
"We went over the last practice test she did. The student did two 15-question passages with all the time she wanted. Reading went well - in two passages, she only missed a total of three questions. We continue to work on good use of time."
"We worked on vocabulary. We reviewed some words from the previous session and answered questions in the book. I assigned the student some words for practice as well as a few math sections from the test book."
"In this session, the student and I finished a review of his second study guide on perfect competition and discussed general test-taking strategies. We finished the session by going through the monopolistically competitive firm questions from the textbook. Since our first session, the student has made good progress in understanding the multiple-choice questions and content. He has also progressed in thinking about the fundamental principles that underlie the questions and answers, as well as in explaining his reasoning for choosing an answer."
