Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student did a wonderful job today. Today me and the student worked on factoring polynomials again. We worked on different types of factoring. We worked on factoring polynomials by grouping them together. Student completely understands the concepts of factoring by parts. YAY!!"
"The student and I finished doing the practice problems from 14.2. By the end of the session, she had a good understanding of the concepts. We'll need to review them next week to make sure it sticks."
"We prepared for the student's Organic Chemistry exam, which is this Monday. We focused on chapters 9 and 10 from his textbook since these will be the focus on his exam. These chapters detail alkene and alkyne reactions so we discussed the various reactions primarily via practice problems that his teacher assigned as homework. He seemed to understand the reactions more so we went on and discussed the mechanisms behind the reactions, and this helped his comprehension and retention. Before our next session, he will do the rest of the practice problems so that we can use this information to prepare for the most difficult problems on his exam: synthesis questions."
"During this session, we went over the student's last math test and reviewed some of the errors that she made. We then spent the rest of the session studying for her science test the following day (chapter 3, concerning atoms/molecular compounds, diffusion/active transport, and photosynthesis/respiration)."
"Practiced writing prompts and discussed essay structure and the importance of word choice. Read poems for comprehension, reviewed geometry concepts and slope intercept form. We also did a math section."
"We completed passages in the practice book and online concerning topics such as enzyme kinetics, thermodynamics, microbiology, viruses, simple harmonic motion and Newton's Forces. Overall, he was able to answer almost all of the questions correctly and with good reasoning. His content base continues to be strong and he is able to quickly and accurately interpret the practice passages during our session. The only topics that he had trouble on, which was understandable as he did go over these topics prior to our exam, was SHM and energy. In spite of that however, his performance was fantastic and I have confidence for his abilities."
