Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student for our final session in preparation for the exam. We began by reviewing the homework assigned during our last meeting, especially focusing on logical deduction and associative vocabulary. The remainder of our time was devoted to critical reading strategies."
"This morning was mine and the student's last session before she takes the SAT tomorrow. We focused on the reading section again, as it has continued to be the most difficult for her, and we know that her college is more interested in her reading score than her writing score. We did the two reading sections in practice test number 10, which contained a regular long passage, a passage from literature, and two comparative passages. The student got last minute practice with all different types of reading possibilities. She did a great job with all of them. We focused on reading both the passages and the questions closely, and to look back at eliminated answers in the case that none of the leftover possibilities seem correct."
"Spanish II final exam review: quizzed client on vocabulary, highlighting unknown words. Reviewed differences in simple past (preterit vs. imperfect), and highlighted specific words ( una vez vs. siempre) that would indicate which tense is to be used. Suggested flash cards for both vocabulary and irregular preterit verb conjugations (dar, ir/ser, etc.). Reviewed indirect and direct object pronouns, made flash cards and quizzed client on situational past and when would use each, demonstrative adjectives, present progressive, possessive pronouns. "
"Reviewed stem changing verbs from prior sessions. Worked through problems in 'cuaderno' for practice identifying how to conjugate verbs. Learned how to talk about doing things in the future 'ir + a + infinitive.' Practiced identifying this construct in a sentence & applying it to sentences."
"Today we worked again on Algebra. We began studying exponential functions, domain and range. We also looked at the material for the remainder of the week, including a geography assignment and an upcoming IPC exam."
"We reviewed concepts for the student's final and the rest of their concepts we will finish on the next session--it was a good session and covered most of the chapters except the game theory and market externalities section"
