Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Completed worksheets on 2's, 5's, 10's, and 3's. The student did awesome with all worksheets, even her 3's. We then played a card game that required her to use her addition and her multiplication skills. She kept score and any multiplication problems that she had to work out she did so with pencil and paper. I helped her with her cross-multiplying when needed. The game will strengthen the skills she has and build newer skills in a fun interactive way."
"Today the student and I finished studying for her SAT on Saturday. We went over the sections that she had completed of a practice test, discussing the questions she got wrong and didn't understand (mostly math and reading comprehension). We also discussed strategies for the essay."
"The student and I started off by discussing what she should do to maintain her skills this week. I told her to practice sections she was weakest in rather than taking another timed test. After that, we went through the rest of her practice test, reviewing strategies such as picking numbers in math and making her own answers in reading. I answered a few questions about essay structure, and we spent the rest of the session practicing sentence completion questions and writing multiple choice questions."
"Today I scribed for the student during class. We were learning and reviewing how to solve quadratic equations as well as equations that are in the quadratic form. The student does extremely well with factoring equations."
"The student and I started our prep work for the ACT. We are starting with the reading section, as she expressed concern over this part of the test. We will continue to go over test tips and taking practice tests to help her prepare for the February test."
"We discussed the student's EGS. Hopefully, her partner will start working so that she can have it finished up and not have to worry about it once she goes back to school. We will probably want to meet for one last review, but that won't be necessary until shortly before the website is due."
