Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"After introductions and a brief discussion of goals, we got to work on the student's reading comprehension and math. He is very strong in both subjects. He learns quickly, but his attention span is less than my older students. As a result, it might take a few more sessions to cover the same amount of material."
"We went over all of the student's notes associated with rate laws as well as the Arrhenius equation. She could not find her review sheet for the test so we just went over the homework she had for this unit. She showed good understanding of each topic and expressed her understanding verbally and with the practice problems she did. Her test is tomorrow."
"The student and I worked through her most recent practice test. On this test, she had greatly improved her ability to skip questions. She understood why she missed the questions that she missed. She generally understood the concepts involved. She grasped quickly when having them explained to her. We identified a very clear pattern in the reading section."
"Today the student and I continued to work through a practice test that she had taken. We focused on reading today. We went through the three reading sections, discussing the passages and going over the questions that she had missed."
"Reviewed synonym/sentence completion strategies and practice test, reviewing wrong answers. Did the same thing with quantitative reasoning. Reviewed answers and trouble areas."
"We talked about current news in Germany. We discussed a reading that was assigned for homework (about VW). We talked about newest technologies in cars, and agreed to work with news material, some textbook reading/ exercises, and more details about alternative energy, all with the focus on improving language production (writing and speaking)."
