Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered stoichiometry, orbitals, common ion effect, boiling point raising and melting point depression, and some other misc. topics."
"The student and I went over the mistakes she made on her test from this week, and then worked through problems on her final review sheet. We also discussed some of the concepts that she's been having trouble with."
"Today we performed problems from a worksheet the student was given by his teacher. The problem contained story problems in which he would have to set up a system of equations based on the wording in the problem and then solve. I explained how to decode the problems to construct math expressions that correctly represent what is occurring in these problems. I had him perform all the problems with my assistance. If he couldn't get through one on his own, I explained how and then had him redo the problem again on his own. "
"Tonight the student and I continued preparation for the verbal reasoning section of the upcoming test. We focused on synonyms with flashcards containing the test vocabulary. We finished the session by completing reading comprehension exercises. The student did well with reading comprehension and we continue to work on her vocabulary skills."
"We worked on worksheets and watched videos. The student did a very good job of filling in the worksheets. At the end we wished each other "Joyeux noel.""
