Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session I met the student and her mother online for a meet-and-greet, so that we could plan how we would conduct sessions in the future. We made plans for future in-person meetings, and the student and I worked through outlining a couple of essay prompts. We also talked about how she would go about doing some diagnostic math tests, so that we would know what to focus on in the future."
"Today's session focused on the Math Achievement section of the placement exam practice test. The student did great on the test. There were about three problems that she needed explanations for. I covered finding fractions between fractions, order of operations, and subtracting mixed fractions. She continues to show a great understanding of math. In addition, she had the chance to use yesterday's prompt to write an essay. Her essay turned out good. We just need to work on stretching out her paragraphs without being repetitive."
"Today, we covered sample questions from the official placement exam guide, focusing on the Mathematics Achievement section. The student did very well here so we moved onto practice questions from the review book. He mainly struggled with translating word problems into algebraic statements. We viewed a few questions, but will be focusing on these problems, translating word problems into mathematical statements, and writing (specifically commas) for the next session."
