Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student review for her Chapter 2 exam. The topics we worked on included graphing rational equations, solving rational inequalities, and solving direct/inverse variation problems. Overall, the student has a solid grasp of the material and simply needed help clarifying small details."
"Today with the student we completely finished his study guide, and spent the rest of the time reviewing. The student is much more confident about this material because he already has some prior knowledge about it, and I think that definitely helps. We went through all the questions again, and he was able to explain most of them verbally to me without looking at the answers. He definitely has a better grasp of the information, and we are just going to continue to review before his test."
"Reviewed indirect and direct object pronouns. The student does fairly well with these when we are working together. She is slowly starting to get more confident about her knowledge of their application. We also did her weekly Spanish homework."
"The student and I met today to do some test preparation. We did problems having to do with solubility, boiling point elevation, freezing point depression, molality, molarity, and dilution. He seemed to feel confident about the material."
"The student is very bright. He understands math when I explain it to him. I started him on basic arithmetic and math foundations because he seemed unsure about math. We also worked on some reading comprehension. He is very strong in reading comp and verbal. We worked on words and I gave him word roots to learn (he takes Latin in school so it should be pretty straightforward for him). We will work more on basic math and techniques for reading and verbal next time."
"1. Went through 1st Semester topics to see what student has / has not learned. 2. Looked through book to find out what student was having trouble with. 3. Student seems to have a good handle on the material she has learned, and needs help with writing short response and essay test questions. Student was to gather tests and papers for next session. "
"We covered the new section on genetic principles, including a plethora of new vocabulary terms. We began the session by reviewing the lab report and covering any questions left incomplete on the chapter questionnaire. The student ensured that his binder would be organized and that he would have his set of review flash cards made by next week in preparation for the next exam."
"Today we went over the student's introductory mastering chemistry assignments. We took this time review the course syllabus and discuss what to expect from the class. We spent the second half of the session catching her up on her Intro to College online class. We reviewed how to navigate the class and completed some of the required assignments. We also went over how to complete the assignments that are due at the end of this week. "
"We covered review material and study tips for her upcoming science test. She has a plan for how to study in the days leading up to the test. Good news is she got 103% on her social studies test which we studied for a couple weeks ago. These study skills seem to be helping in all subjects."
"ACT: reviewed essay outline assigned as homework. Worked on math section (test #2), left 15 problems and an entire section for homework. Spanish: reviewed present progressive. Worked on present progressive with other verbs (ir, andar, and seguir) and past progressive with both preterite and imperfect."
"I discussed and learned about the student's situation and the goals related to having me there. I got to see her previous test score and we concentrated first on Reading Comprehension questions, since they were her weak point. The first couple problems she struggled with, but the later two passages she did well on, after going over a few pointers. We ended with a few math problems and agreed it'd be best for her to do some practice problem sets before each of our sessions."
"Student 1 and I went over the latest biology problem set. This problem set dealt mainly with differences between plant life cycles, and specifics about how meiosis and mitosis lead to those different plant cycles. We also spoke about the anatomy of male and female flowering plants. Finally, we spoke of the different fertilization events that lead to the creation of fruit and seeds. It seems like both students are talking about their studies, which is definitely good to see!"
