Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"AP Calculus AB -The student worked on taking derivatives of trigonometric functions. Her understanding of the actual calculus was pretty solid. Also, I introduced her to different ways to view trigonometric identities so that she could further simplify her answers."
"The student and I continued our grammar review. We did multiple activities with Subject, Direct Object, and Indirect Object. He did well on the first worksheet. We reviewed the procedures to identify each. He gained confidence. He also completed another practice proofreading exercise. He is doing better with the proofreader's marks. He also made fewer mistakes than last time."
"We worked mostly on the math section today- I wanted to review some of the types of problems she had struggled with and have her practice several problems. She is doing better with these. Next time we will focus more on the reading and writing sections. We also talked some about strategies for the math section, including plugging in numbers for variables and making an equation. It was a good and productive session!"
"The student and I reviewed papers she previously submitted for her AP English course. We discussed her teacher's feedback and expectations. She chose a paper to rewrite and submit to her teacher for review and feedback. We discussed her writing style and process, her need to clarify her thesis, strengthen the discussion of examples, and correct grammatical issues. We worked through the paper sentence by sentence, addressing the issues above. She will rewrite and send draft to me for comments/suggestions."
"The student and I covered multiplication and division through an online game. He was better able to figure out the answer each time he played. His tables are getting better as he is practicing more. I left him to try to beat my score for the week."
"The student worked on Spanish homework in preparation for her test on Wednesday. We are focusing on the verb SER and pronouns. She did a great job of incorporating the vocab into spontaneous sentences."
