Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She began probability distributions. I covered both the binomial and geometric distributions. I also explained the significance behind the factorial, combination and permutation functions. I happened to have coins and a deck of cards handy so that really helped nail the point home."
"Today the student and I began, as usual, with some verbal practice. For the remainder of the session we did math work, focusing again on word problems dealing with averages, probability, and problems involving discounts. He is getting closer to that "aha" moment but still needs at least another 2 sessions devoted to these tricky word problems."
"We learned more body parts and reviewed her knowledge of them by playing an interactive game on the computer. We reviewed a lesson on 5 sets of opposites, which she mastered. She also learned how to write the characters of most of them. We reviewed animals and we used stuffed animals to learn how to describe where things are in relation to one another."
"The student reviewed this week's work in Geography covering ordnance survey maps (UK) and water conservation. We have started to review all materials covered since the beginning of the term in preparation for examinations beginning the middle of May and continuing through the middle of June."
"Today we started chapter 13 in math, and reviewed area of shapes. We also continued in the student's language arts book and went over homophones, as well as reading. Lastly we completed two reading response questions for the book he is reading. Overall great session! He was really focused today and worked through new concepts easily!"
"We covered a few of his upcoming projects for the rest of the semester and made a game plan on how to attack them. I then assisted the student on his financial planning that was around trusts and estate planning. He did fairly well on it, and the information was more conceptual thinking rather than math or formula based. He still has a little room for improvement, but is leaps and bounds above from where he started."
