Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, we mainly focused on the research paper for English and spelling for Spanish. The student's main issue in Spanish right now is the accent marks. She is losing points not because she doesn't know the terms or the structure, but because she is omitting the accent marks. To solve this issue, I have the student hand writing each term with an accent (including verb conjugations) three times each. With continued practice, this will no longer be an issue. For the research paper, we created the outline today. The student's topic has changed a bit, and we worked to refine the topic so we can build a thesis and main points."
"In this session, the student learned how to use a movie making program with her project and select components of a presentation that will make the most impact. She put together an amazing project and video. She learned very quickly how to use the software. Her attitude was positive and enthusiastic. I discovered recently that her project earned a 100% and was selected as a class exemplar."
"The student and I worked through her math review sheet. Her English and Math final are tomorrow. She has a plan for her oral presentation in English and has already had feedback. For tonight I asked her to re-do each math problem we completed together on a new sheet of paper. The goal is for her to do the problems w/o looking at the solution. She seemed more confident tonight, I believe she will carry this into her finals and perform her best."
