Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The students remembered most of the previous lessons. They seem to be capturing the knowledge relatively quickly. I would like them to start using them more in real life in order to practice. Today, we covered the basic colors and animal names. I would like them to finish workbook B pages for chapter 6. Beginning next time, I will incorporate more sentences for everyday usage such as greetings, activities, and names of objects."
"During this session we continued with the Trigonometry sections. We covered using the identities and solving for exact values of angles by use of the reference angles and angles we know. The student is doing very well, he seems to understand the subject. Overall this session went well."
"We reviewed his online homework database. The student and I reviewed his math homework, which consisted of adding and subtracting fractions, changing the denominators, and simplifying into lowest terms. I helped the student come up with a mnemonic saying to memorize the bible testaments for his religion class."
"Began new section: the house. Went through vocabulary in section 5.2. Wrote a paragraph describing the student's dream house using vocabulary from the unit and stipulations from teacher. The student did great at putting together sentences using a direct translation method of writing in English first & Spanish second."
"The student and I worked through the practice test and started with a reading section. We worked through vocab, short passages, and then long passages. We also discussed strategy with how to tackle vocab, dual passages, and specific vs. global question on long passages."
"We covered colors, clothing, and article pronunciation. We also reviewed the sound "O" in French. The student was initially struggling with pronunciation, but after review, he grasped the concept. I used an example with the word "plateau" to help him remember how to pronounce "eau" when he sees it. We are preparing for his first quiz, and his homework video was the best in his class. A win is that he really wants to learn and get good grades and is willing to do the work to get where he wants to be."
