Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a worksheet on factors for homework. We used manipulatives and a multiplication chart to help figure factors up to the number 40."
"In this session we mainly covered the Science portion of the ACT and worked through the difficult problems in the Science sections of Practice Test 1 and Practice Test 2. We discussed how to read charts and collect data from the tables and graphs often present in the Science section. We also went over the first 30 questions of the Practice Test 3 Math Section and will be going over the remaining questions of that test in the next session."
"The student and I reviewed her History of Photography quiz, her History of Photography Discussion and several responses."
"Math packet and multiplication worksheet (makeup work from previous week), vocabulary. The student completed this week's vocabulary well and with minimal guidance. I was VERY pleased on this day to see how readily he complied with my instruction to read the passage and the definitions prior to completing the worksheet. His attitude this week has been much improved."
"The student and I worked on math today, primarily fractions, decimals and percentages and how to switch back and forth amongst the three, including adding and subtracting fractions and finding the least common denominator. She has made great progress!"
"The student has an Advanced Macroeconomics exam tomorrow, and we continued working through the study questions and problems provided by her professor, referring to her class slides when she had trouble remembering a concept. We focused today on the banking system, capital vs. assets and what it means for a bank to be "highly leveraged," calculating money supply vs. monetary base with the money multiplier, and how the Federal Reserve executes monetary policy. We talked about how all these variables were at play during the 2008 financial crisis. We also worked through questions about unemployment and unions. I know she is more solid on questions she can solve mathematically than those that are more conceptual, but I encouraged her to study certain ones above all before her exam."
