Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is responding well to the organization tactics I have required from him. He seems much happier, focused, and more willing to work as a result. We will have to be extra diligent for the remainder of the time we have together."
"The student and I reviewed for her final. She did very well for most of the session and was very receptive to my explanations. She is really good about letting me know what makes sense to her and what doesn't. She should review some of the things we did towards the end of the session, but she worked hard and made it through. If she finds she needs more help before her final Friday, we will try to meet on Thursday evening for a last review. I think she has the potential to do very well regardless. The student has worked hard all year and is a very conscientious student. I look forward to continuing to work with her over the summer, as well as into her Sophomore year, if she feels she needs to continue tutoring."
"We worked through the quiz and some homework. The student did pretty well today, and he understood most of the concepts but was making few little mistakes. He needs to work on his graphing and needs to memorize his formulas, but other than that it was a pretty good session."
"The student and I started to work on geometry today, as she'll be working on it in school next year. We quickly reviewed definitions and types of angles, and she excelled. We started off with simple problems, but ended up getting through about twenty pages of material. I'm looking to bring her more difficult material next week to challenge her previous knowledge and promote new learning."
"We finished chapters 3 and 4 (linear equations, point-slope form, scatter points, graphing). We also did word problems dealing with finding the slope of two points. We also covered parallel and perpendicular lines."
"This week was the first single topic lesson. We covered radicals (square/cube/etc. roots), and how to do different things with them. We started with simplifying radicals by prime factoring, then moved onto adding and subtracting radicals, then multiplying, and ended with rationalizing the denominator. The student was very involved throughout the entire session. He gave more answers to my questions when asked instead of trying to rely on me for an answer. He's beginning to show more confidence in his answers and his work. I assigned a small problem set for him to work on before we meet next so that we can review how he is coming along with this topic."
