Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over the 5 areas her teacher said she missed on the quiz, changing improper fractions to mixed numbers, plotting them on a number line, converting units, understanding what word problems are asking for, etc. The student left the quiz at school, so I made up some problems. We're going to go over the quiz tomorrow at 7:15pm. I've emailed her teacher to fill her in."
"Reviewed results of practice PSAT client took on October 1. Scores were decent in Reading and Math, but not as good in Writing, especially error identification and paragraph editing. Introduced multiple techniques for thinking about questions and answer choices. Client made much progress, answering 70% - 90% of questions right at end of session."
"Continued today with the English section, and reviewed each grammar concept and rule for standard written English tested by the ACT. Despite the student's initial trepidation (mostly from not knowing the "formal" names for each rule), her instinct was usually correct and she understood new concepts with minimal explanation. We'll conduct some review of English before our time is complete, but she seems pretty close to mastery. Next session we will move on to Math."
"Today we went over Units 4 and 5 on the student's study guide. These units encompassed multiple chapters in the books. We once again went over each bullet point on the teacher's timeline worksheet. We discussed dates, events, names, and places."
"The student and I met to go over her assigned homework. She had completed English but not math, so we completed the math section during our session. Her English is improving slightly, and she has the "book knowledge" of math - knows the equations I wrote down for her, but doesn't always know when to apply them. I assigned reading and science as homework, and we discussed proper application of math equations. We are meeting again on Monday."
"We continued to work on the content covered in the previous PowerPoint and discussed the key concepts presented in the student's final homework assignment. We also covered key strategies for helping her remember which equations to use, and went over a few examples."
