Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed naming of points in a Euclidean plain, slope, and set domains for points. I shared with her briefly on other areas of mathematics she thinks are interesting. We completed 80% of work due on Thursday which she will finish with a school tutor session on the 26th."
"The student & I began by reviewing her speech. I gave her a few recommendations regarding content and organization. We then worked on biology. She has been making improvements on how to do Internet research. She has been successfully using the "find" function, skimming websites for relevant information, and developing different strategies for looking for the information she needs to find."
"Assessed the student's level. Established a method to be used throughout tutoring. Reviewed study techniques including: skimming the chapter headline and titles, defining bolded words within the chapter, defining every word that is not completely understood, reading the chapter outline, and then reading the chapter and making an outline."
"We spent almost half our session going over sight words. I tried to help her recognize sound patterns so that words would become more recognizable. What we have to continue working on with her is her sound recognition skills and then putting the letter sounds in order as they appear in the word."
"Today we went over the student's Algebra 2 Final Practice test. The focus was primarily on sequences and series, and how to use or create the formulas provided with the test. We also got in some review of logarithms and exponentials, as wells as compounding interest formulas."
"The student took a practice test yesterday, and his scores continue to climb. He's now at about a 154. Timing in the Logic Games section was a big challenge, so we worked on ways to streamline his shorthand/ sketches, to avoid having to test every single answer choice (a slow process). We also worked on Logic Games that lack the usual restrictions (everybody used, every category filled, etc.), including the dreaded subzones game. He's going to keep working in his lesson book and do at least one more practice test before our next session."
