Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed the Berlin Wall, Vietnam War, and Cold War conflicts around the world. We also discussed the Bay of PIgs, the Cuban Missiles Crisis, and attempts at arms control during the Cold War."
"The student's last tutor focused on the math section, so today we focused on the writing and reading sections. We brainstormed go-to topics for the essay section, and I had her write a practice essay. We also did practice questions on the writing and reading, and discussed strategies for answering those tricky questions. I assigned her four practice sections: one each of the multiple choice for math, writing, and reading, as well as one essay."
"We did math problems from worksheets: place value, subtraction, addition word problems. We continued to read from our book together, Johnny Tremaine - and discussed new vocab and character motivations (why did Johnny do this? Why does Dove feel this way about Johnny?)."
"The student and I reviewed the practice test he completed last week together. We reviewed the rules the test is most known for evaluating, and I assigned him some of the "test yourself" material from that section. Overall, he is rapidly becoming ready for the test, but he needs to continue working on identifying errors in grammar accurately. "
