Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student on Saturday at 11:30. He is now in summer school taking a writing class and he showed me his first assignment. He told me some of the ideas he had for the paper, which is due on 5/29. After listening to his ideas I drafted an outline for him and he told me he would get me a rough draft the next night or Monday night before the paper was due."
"The student and I worked on math word problems, setting up equations and vocabulary. I brought fraction shapes to work with so the student could manipulate the factions. We made flash cards for basic fractions and vocabulary words for the assessment. We also were able to read a passage and answer questions to build on reading comprehension."
"1. Compared Cyclic and noncyclic electron flow. 2. Discussed the steps of Calvin cycle. 3. Differentiated between C4, C3, CAM photosynthesis. 4. Differentiated between substrate level phosphorylation and chemiosmosis. 5. Reviewed chemical equations, molecules in out, reduction and oxidation pathways. Test is tomorrow! Will see student Thursday 11/29 for test debriefing. "
"During this session, the student and I reviewed his recent exam in which he got 14/19. During this time we identified the mistakes he made and the opportunity to request up to three points back, which if granted would put him in between an A and B. After that, we began a new topic, vectors, that after clarification were less abstract for the student. I believe that he grasped the concept fairly well, and I look forward to reviewing with him in a few weeks before his exam."
"We went through the rules of exponentials and fractions. She asked for some help with general problem solving skills. I taught her how to write every step of her problems down to increase correct problems. We covered solving linear functions and finding the domain of rational expressions as well."
"The student and I reviewed his homework from the past 10 days. He is struggling a bit with SC and CR, but he's doing well with reading comp. We focused on SC at first, and I asked him to do 30 problems for our next session and to keep track of the issues that he is making mistakes on. We then went over some of the quant problems that he had questions on. I assigned him CR 10 and quant 9 for homework. Next session, we will focus more on CR and SC."
