Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over vocabulary and made picture flash cards. Then we went over many math word problems. We discussed essays and wrapped up with essay strategy. The student was engaged and attentive."
"With student 1, I continue to work in informational reading passages with her. We also did an actual passage today from an ISEE primary exam. For the audio comprehension portion, it was a voice other than mine reading it. I want her to get used to this. She got 100% of the questions correct! I was so proud of her. For math, I'm making a huge deal out of drawing out every single question, and she's getting good at it. We are still working on writing. She is good at answering the who, what, when, where, and why of pictures, but I'm working with her to use the picture to tell a story in addition to answering those questions. Student 2 is really excelling. I've been giving her extremely tough reading passages (around 7th grade reading level) to really push her, and she's been doing great. We continue to practice the trickier math concepts, but she's doing wonderful."
"We worked on the distributive property and how to change an equation when we are using the distributive with 2 variables as well as combining like terms. And we wrapped up working on probability."
