Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed Chapters 13-16, through lecture, as the student has a test on this material Wednesday. She had some questions, but had an overall understanding of the material. There is no additional practice, as she wants to focus on this test. There were no concerns for this session."
"Today, we began by completing his IDs for the week. There were only four and they revolved around the very beginning of the Civil War. Then we reviewed for his test, focusing on 1820-1861. We discussed the Age of Reform and the role women played in reform. We then thoroughly discussed the events and tensions leading up to the Civil War - including the political, social, and economic causes. The student will need to review his past IDs a little more closely to be fully ready for the test (we discussed that he needed to do this), but he has a great grasp on the bigger themes and was able to discuss why the Civil War happened."
"The second session went very well, as we delved deeper into the subject matter and continued to focus on note-taking and study skills. Right now we are covering the time period that sort of laid the ideological, political and economical foundations that would lead to The Civil War."
"We covered two chapters out his textbook on westward expansion and the Civil War. He seemed to be well-prepared for the questions that I asked him about concerning the content. He has shown a lot of improvement since our first session and told me that his grades have improved to a B average overall. I am very impressed!"
"The student and I covered the new set of vocabulary words for the next 4 chapters of his textbook, 20-23. We made definitions for each of the vocabulary words, going more in depth where needed. After this we continued with our flashcard building and made cards for his new set with definitions put in his own words and concept connections included."
"We discussed Frida Kahlo, Claes Oldenburg, and Oppenheim. With each of these works, we identified the five key points, discussed other works by the same artist, and then compared them to other images from his image set."
