Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Weekly summary. We spent some time catching him up on homework, and also had him write a short story of his trip. He was enthusiastic and quickly wrote out a fantastic composition with very little help and nearly flawless spelling. I am so proud of him!"
"Today the student and I looked over a practice ACT Math section she had started before we began working together. By going over the wrong and blank answers and by taking note of the right answers, we worked to determine what specific areas the student needs to focus on improving; so far, it seems her biggest weakness is missing critical details of problems. The student is going to do some more practice work before our final session to help reinforce this skill."
"The student and I worked on factoring polynomial expressions. She was able to understand the new material by the end of the session."
"Today we reviewed for the an upcoming exam. He did very well on the review packet. His test is on 3-D shapes. We discussed the names and various parts. We also reviewed area, volume, and surface area. He knows his multiplication tables very well, which is a big help in these calculations. He just needs to be careful when finding the surface area, and make sure he has measured each of the sides. Overall, he did very well."
"In the session today, we went over her practice exam for the Physics class and worked on all the problems. She was able to apply the concepts she had previously dealt with on her homework but will still need to review the material to strengthen her current foundations."
"The student and I spent part of the session talking about how to do a formal analysis of art -- how to analyze the different elements of a work of art, including line, shape, form, material, color, light, and texture. We also reviewed some content areas, including South and Southeast Asian art."
