Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Great session! This time we focused on a new project, the student's "Future Self" PowerPoint. We brainstormed, planned the slides, created four, and researched her college. There's definitely a lot to work on in the upcoming weeks."
"The student and I covered how to solve for missing angles with triangles and lines. We also touched on triangle postulates. He worked on really understanding the angle concept and how to use the theorems he knows and apply logic to solve for multi step problems. He was able to grab this concept after challenging him with questions and isolating each substep. The next chapters will require the same method and critical thinking."
"We did a review of the sentence completion techniques and moved forward into reading comprehension, which the student had expressed worries about completing on time. We worked on reinforcing good test-taking habits to eliminate careless mistakes, and practiced techniques for reading comprehension. She wanted to work on essay topics, so we pulled up a couple of sample essay topics and worked on an activity in which she brainstormed pro/con arguments for sample essay prompts for 5 minutes each."
"We continued to prepare for the student's test by reviewing vowel phonetics and cursive writing. He is well ahead of what his curriculum demands, so we will review what he learns in class prior to tests, but mostly continue work on subjects/topics beyond the scope of his schooling."
"In this session we began covering friction. The student had only worked on this for one day in class. We made some definite progress, and with a few more days spent on the subject she should handle it just fine. In our next session I will come back to this material at least briefly to make sure she is doing well."
"The student and I worked primarily on logical reasoning, focusing especially on working with strengthen and weaken questions types that she has been struggling the most with. We also did some work on some different types of logic games problems and worked through the answers she struggled to answer."
