Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we went over European history, covered fractional exponents and composite functions, and did some dimensional analysis."
"We covered a review for his upcoming geometry test. I also helped him properly complete his US history study guide."
"Today the student was very focused and did a good job of working through his homework. He had a little bit of math to finish up. After that, we studied for his geography test. He had all of the things that he needed to know memorized pretty well, so I helped him out by tracing a map for him to practice labeling things on. We reviewed all of the terms he was supposed to be able to identify a number of times until he no longer needed any prompting from me. At this point, we returned to math and worked with flashcards to help him memorize the times tables he didn't yet know. He was very resourceful with his knowledge of fact families, which made learning the times tables much easier. When I left today, he was able to do all of his 6's, 7's, and 8's from memory. I will continue to quiz him on these in the future to be sure to maintain this knowledge."
"The student did his spelling homework and practiced for a spelling test tomorrow. He had finished all of his other homework, so we read for the rest of the time."
"We worked on math skills (writing a number with given place-values). This was very easy for the student. Then we worked on addition with three sets of numbers (which included thousands). He often forgets to add carried numbers to the value of the following place value, but other than that has no problems with addition. We then moved on to language skills, reviewing possessive pronouns, plural possessives, and contractions. We did an exercise where he had to correct any contractions of the sentence with an apostrophe. Overall, he does not seem to have a problem with any of the subjects we covered. He was much more focused this session."
"The student is getting ready to take her final exam in English in two weeks. So we're working on essay structure, grammatically correct sentence structure, reading comprehension, and critical thinking. We read 3 passages and analyzed them together. She didn't have any homework for the day, so we only focused on perfecting her writing skills."
