Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on completing her science and math homework. She was working on dominant and recessive traits in science and on converting percents to decimals and vice versa in math. She understood everything and had no trouble."
"We talked about several strategies for making math and science slightly easier. In math, he mentioned difficulty copying down notes as he loses his place looking back and forth from the screen to his computer. I suggested taking notes on his netbook by touch typing so he can keeps his eyes on the board and keeping a piece of paper and a pencil on hand to write down numbers. For science, I suggested coming up with his own examples for vocabulary that tie into his interests, specifically sports. Lastly, I suggested flash cards for vocabulary and teaching a concept to someone (or his dog) to prove to himself he knows a concept inside and out. I also requested he bring his science notebook to future sessions so we can work on it together."
"Today the student and I worked through a few subjects. We worked on a few math problems, looked at the notecards she has made, and did a couple of geography worksheets. She understands the math problems well, but it takes a while to get through them. In future sessions we are going to start doing short multiplication exercises each day so that she becomes more comfortable with it and relies less on multiplication tables."
