Then we studied for his weekly math fact test and continued preparing for his finals. I also spoke with his classroom teacher over the phone today, and she gave me some insight on what to work on with him as well."
"The student is reading "The Lord of the Flies" in her English class. Today we went over Chapters 10-12 and the corresponding homework questions. We discussed symbolism and meaning behind the author's writing style."
"The student and I went over his review packet for the last chapter in math and started on review for his math makeup test in a few weeks. The test material is mainly on trigonometric functions, so we worked on several concepts within trigonometry. The most important preparation for the test, will be memorizing the separate formulas and rules for the operations. We will definitely work on memorization techniques once the date is closer, and we will continue to work on practice problems."
