Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student A and I reviewed food vocabulary words, the months and days of the week, how to tell time, and how to describe himself. We reviewed flash cards of food pictures. Then he took a visual test in which he was to match the word with the picture. He got every question right. I asked him to tell me the birth months of his family members, what he does at certain specific times each day and to describe himself. He answered each question in French. Student B and I reviewed the present tense conjugation of irregular verbs and reviewed direct object pronouns and emphatic pronouns."
"We went over the student's speech for her class's speech contest one last time before she presented it. This included reviewing any grammatical or spelling errors in the essay and working on memorization. She had a good grasp on it to begin with, and we focused on the last few paragraphs that needed some extra work."
"The student is a master at geometry! We finished up that section today, and for some reason it just really seems to click for her. She is also very good with the reading comprehension stuff (she says it's like other tests she's done in the past). Today was a fun session! We'll get into some real practice test material after the break."
"In this session, we worked on a lab covering conservation of matter. In addition, we went over homework problems covering this topic. Lastly, we worked on a two different biology homework assignments covering sex-linked genetic disorders and co-dominant genetics."
"This session we just went over the student's notes from his advanced digital design class, covering basic digital logic principles such as logic gates, Boolean algebra, karnaugh maps, and static/dynamic hazards. Aside from one particular step in the Boolean algebra example, he seemed pretty comfortable with all the material, hence the shorter session."
"The student worked on the assignment about answering the questions based on a dialog. The questions are not very difficult, so she managed to construct well-organized sentences to answer them. The challenge is the new app in the reading system. This new app provides too much information, such as translation, work frequency, etc., that distracts even native Mandarin speakers. I will encourage her to only use the app for work checking instead of a dictionary."
