Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did very well today. We went over a DBQ on "How were the Olympic games shaped by political, social, and economic factors?" I also showed her how students that took this released exam did. She and I will be working on Multiple choice question next time. I feel the Multiple choice questions are good for review."
"During this session we went over the Opium war between the Chinese and the British. The student had to do an assignment and needed help with it. Thus, I explained the assignment to her and what it seemed that her teacher wanted from her. Once this was done, we started to go into the assignment which was basically to write a draft of a paper about the war. She did not have a hard time understanding the topic and she seemed to be processing the information well. By the time I left, we were at the point where she needed to think of a thesis statement. She written one but it was not really a thesis statement so I gave her a quick class on ideas for a thesis statement. I also told her to get some ideas out and when I come back on Friday, I will be able to help her more."
"Today we continued through early world history. There is still much to review but the student more recently was exposed to the content in later world history and I expect we will move more quickly through the remaining content. We are on-track with content review before her test and will continue to review while working on the writing portions of the test in our next session."
