Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I did a final review for the assessment test. Also, we reviewed topics from his US history class. I told the student to hold on to his review packet, though, because there are a lot of useful exercises in Algebra 1 and Geometry that he has not mastered yet."
"Reviewed homework problems in preparation for his quiz which included effective nuclear charge, periodic trends(electronegativity, electron affinity, energy of ionization, atomic radii), balancing equations, inferring unknown reactants based on experimental observations, electronic configuration (and how this leads to the periodic trends and their exceptions), then physics: inclined planes; derivations of calculations for block being pulled up a ramp with friction using a free body diagram."
"Went over and reviewed the topics covered last week for the student's exam this week. Since it was our last session, I went over the topics and some methods to better understand the material."
"The student and I worked on short introductory phrases and phonetics, as well as distinguishing male, female, and neutral articles. She is making great progress already and is an incredible learner. Also worked on the alphabet, numbers, as well as a couple of cultural topics."
"During this session, I helped the student understand the grammatical rules of the prepositions Por and Para. We also practiced with several examples, including illustrations that will help her remember each of the rules. This grammar rules are difficult, but she is following my advice, and I am sure she will do well in her Spanish course."
"This session we covered family, which is what they learned this week in class. The boys learned it quickly so we did not go over it too much. We reviewed body parts, which is what they learned last week. And I also taught them some animals because they were very eager to learn that and I felt that because they had this week's lesson down, they could learn a new subject. They struggled with pronunciation and remembering how words sound, but that is normal for those who are just learning. I left them with a vocabulary list of the animals we went over today, so next week I will have them review those and give a "quiz" of sorts."
