Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a review sheet for his geometry final, so we spent our time going over it. He is remembering some of the new material better, and doing very well at being more independent. I think he is in a good position for his classes :)"
"The student and I worked on her homework from school; I primarily assisted her with reading and a writing assignment. She is doing very well with sounding out unfamiliar words and much better with sight words. "
"We discussed the student's performance on practice test 2. We discussed strategy for sentence completion questions, and worked on missed sentence completion questions from practice test 1. We did some practice essay brainstorming together."
"We went over some questions on the student's Pre-Calculus test that she got a failing grade on. We reviewed the main formulas and concepts from the chapter, made a breakdown sheet, and worked some sample problems."
"We practiced stoichiometry problems for her test on Friday. The student is very bright and picked up on the concepts quickly. She sometimes got stuck solving a few problems, but after a little guidance she was able to arrive at the correct answer."
"The student was having problems with simplifying radicals, so I went over the different ways he can solve those kinds of questions and he did practice problems. Also, we went over solving simple equations. He only had a vocabulary worksheet for Biology so we agreed he would attempt that first."
"The girls performed very well today. They are very open with asking about questions they don't understand, and challenging why certain answers are correct versus others. I hope that with enough practice, their reading comprehension scores will continue to increase. I feel that both girls have a strong grasp of grammar and therefore, there will not be as much emphasis placed on the relating sections."
"1. The student practiced on solving multi step algebra problems. 2. I critiqued his composition. We discussed elaborating and worked on brainstorming on ISEE topics. 3. I quizzed him over his vocab words. 4. We discussed and he summarized a novel he was reading for school."
"The student and I completed her 2 Excel assignments about ANOVA Analysis and Regressions. We also reviewed the material from the last week for her unit quiz on Wed. Next session we will review for her final."
"First Session. Today we reviewed her homework and discussed what areas she wanted to review in future sessions. We discussed probability and creating a sample space. She was a little confused at first but seemed to have a better grasp after reviewing. We also discussed angles and calculating the measure of adjacent angles. Towards the end of the session we went over the metric system and how to easily convert between units. She has great potential, we just need to review and make sure she has a solid grasp of the topics. "
"Today we went over proportional relationships and ratios. The student should be fine there. She will be covering circuits in her next physics unit. We will most likely go over physics in our next session."
"The student is struggling in the reading comprehension section of his practice test this week, so we focused almost exclusively on reading comp. We reviewed active reading and discussed creating a mental road map of the passage, and he showed improvement in both."
