Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered a mixed review as the test date approaches. In the end, she struggled a bit with fraction adding, so we will reinforce that through the homework."
"During the first hour we focused on math. In this session we focused on application of slope and point-slope equations, geometry (pyramids, cones, prisms). She is improving on being able to execute the steps needed to solve geometry and algebra problems. I assigned her to finish the rest of the problems we did not get to for our next session. We focused on critical reading in the next hour. We went through several passages and vocab questions. For next session, she should work on memorizing the vocab lists I sent."
"The student and I began by going over his homework and reviewing passage-based reading strategies. He is doing a good job with these so far, and we will continue to practice them together. Next, we looked over the timed essay that he wrote and discussed what he did well and what he could improve on upon next time. He seems to be having a little bit of trouble brainstorming with his list, so we practiced brainstorming and outlining an essay. We also practiced writing thesis statements and topic sentences. He did a great job with this exercise, and he will continue to improve as he writes more timed essays. For homework, he will complete two timed exams under actual testing conditions using practice tests. He should remember to send me these essays at least 24 hours before our next session. In our next session, we will review this homework and continue working on passage-based reading."
