Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I made a schedule, outlining when lessons and exams will be completed for Speech, Government, and English. We then began the reading for the first Speech lesson and completed half of the self assessment activities. The topic was communication models. Before our Wednesday meeting, he will have Speech Lesson One completed and have all of the reading finished for Government Lesson One and English Lesson One. By Friday, the following lessons will be completed: Speech Lessons 1 & 2, English Lesson 1, & Government Lesson 1."
"The student and I met for the first time. We reviewed her essay for English and discussed her paper. We specifically talked about how to set up the intro and conclusion, how to write body paragraphs, and emphasizing the 'so what'."
"The session went well. We reviewed an old test and the student was able to correctly answer all the questions he'd missed on the actual test day. We reviewed the properties of water, electronegativity, three types of bonds, subatomic particles, acids and bases, etc. We are scheduled to meet again this Thursday."
"The student and I spent the entire session working on fractions. She said that she really enjoys fractions. We began by simply identifying fractions. She did this with ease. We moved on to equivalent fractions. She was comfortable with the basic concept and caught on quickly with the more difficult problems. I was extremely pleased with her during the session. We will move on to converting fractions to decimals next week."
"Today we worked on a Computer and Internet lesson. This time we worked on the lesson content. We applied all the new vocabulary in real life conversation. It is a very useful lesson. We both had a good time."
"The student has a midterm this Friday on all the new topics they've covered, and his teacher gave them a review worksheet, so we were working on a review of that together. He seems to understand things well, he will just need to work on memorization. I advised him to study every night this week for at least 45 minutes, and told him additional things he will need to review (i.e., vocabulary, verb tenses/moods, and 3rd declension endings). The worksheet I'd sent covers some of the material that will be on the midterm, so it seems like he will complete it as part of his studying."
