Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his science homework and then we went over the corrections on his returned papers. He is getting more comfortable with me and is starting to read louder. By explaining why the corrections were made and having him read the questions he is able to see why the answers were incorrect in the first place."

"The student and I worked on studying for her final. We reviewed imperfect vs. preterite, ser vs. estar, por vs. para, expressions with tener, superlative and comparative, and irregulars and stem changers in the past. We had to spend more time on the preterite irregulars and stem changers but she did well."
" I assigned the student a writing assignment last week. I asked him to choose an article from a magazine or newspaper that interested him. He was then tasked with writing a summary about the work. He did well on the assignment. His writing was engaging, he picked key details to discuss and the work was in order. I helped him improve the text by including more details since the summary he wrote was a bit short. I look forward to seeing his future writing assignments as if he already showing improvement."
"I met with the student to review for her final. I had made a study packet highlighting some of the major topics from this semester including: cell organelles, meiosis, mitosis, cellular respiration and Mendelian genetics. In the last session we went over the first half of the study packet so the student and I reviewed the second half today. The topics included cellular respiration, Mendelian test crosses, and photosynthesis."
"The student and I focused intensively on RC tonight, paying particular attention to practicing predictive reading from paragraph to paragraph and looking for the author's emphasis and opinions. In our next session, we're going to do one hour of Sentence Correction, followed by one hour of whatever he feels needs the most work."
