Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed material from period 7. The student had a good understanding of this time period during our first pass-through several sessions ago. It is getting easier for her to be able to connect events and people over an expanse of time. She should continue to work on remembering the details of certain events, but she is doing significantly better with seeing the big pictures."
"Today we went over FRQs and the student got a lot out of it. He was asking good questions about formatting, organization, and strategies. I felt as though he was very engaged this session and gleaned a lot of helpful strategies from it."
"The student and I reviewed practice multiple choice and short answer questions for Period 8, for her unit wrap up this week. The student has done such a wonderful job of studying her information and content. It is wonderful to walk through the questions and have her critically evaluate the possible answers until she reaches the correct one. I have encouraged her to keep reviewing key terms and to continue practicing multiple choice questions to improve her timing on evaluating the options. When it comes to short answer questions, she does a wonderful job bringing together key terms and timeline, and directing her response to the questions being asked. The only thing I will continue to stress in this direction is to get as specific as possible when answering the question. We plan to meet again to do a full review for the final AP US History test."
