Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through the next 2 sections in chapter 12, going over vectors and dot products. Then started chapter 13. The student is doing very well and is picking up the new material well. It was a really good session."
"Intro session covering Chapter 5 (Sentence Completions) and partial Chapter 6 (short reading passages), plus vocab "word roots" exercise; assigned "guessing definitions" worksheet and full Practice Test 1 including essay as HW."
"SAT Exam Overview SAT Verbal Reasoning Sentence Completions Vocabulary Overview One Math Section was completed. Student was instructed to create a flashcard bank and review daily for optimal retention; he will memorize about 25 words before our next session Overview of common strategies for SAT Math problems, such as plugging in numbers from the answer as well as "outside" numbers to verify algebraic manipulation was done correctly"
"I created a pretest based on the 2nd grade Common Core standards and administered it to the student. She performed very well and got 19 out of 20 correct. We worked on addition and subtraction. She completed all the addition and subtraction problems correctly. In addition, I had her complete word problems, which she answered correctly as well. We continued to work on her multiplication, which she knows but needs to improve on. Next session, I will continue to work with her on her multiplication and begin working on 3rd grade Common Core standards. I have looked over the science standards for 2nd grade, and I recommend she focus primarily on math, since science is more reading related. Therefore, moving forward I will be tutoring her in math."
"I reviewed all her notes, discussed her goals, and set-up a plan for a successful studying. We also studied grammar and verbs ( present and future tenses)."
"The student and I went over passive voice verbs, worked through homework and retook practice for tests and started planning for the summer. He received a 93 on a recent quiz."
