Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed tests 4 and 5 that I had assigned her to take. She scored a composite 32 on each of her tests which is a huge increase from the 27 that she started at. After 4 weeks of prep, her score increased a composite 5 points. I assigned her to take one last full-length ACT exam (the free PDF on the ACT student website), and we will meet to review her test before the real exam on Saturday."
"We worked on the future and conditional tenses. As I have said before, the student is doing very well with the new material. It is challenging for her at first glance but once we review grammar and keep clear the rules for applying it, she feels more confident and I am glad she grasps the new concepts fast. He Spanish class seems to be fast paced and the level it is advanced, but we are doing great progress and she is getting awesome grades. Now she has learned all the Spanish verb tenses, and she has to combine them. It is complicated because she is just beginning with it, but she is feeling at ease with it."
"The student has a history test Tuesday, so we reviewed Chapter 12 in anticipation of that. He seems to have a good grasp of the material, and we reviewed major names/events as well as the forces that drove them so he'd have an understanding of how history unfolds and why."
"Created a timeline of the American colonial and revolutionary period. I believe the student is making good progress and seems to understand this time period much more thoroughly now. We're moving on to the Civil War next week."
"This session was a with both students. With the first student, we went over algebra/trig quad equations, discriminates, and completing squares. In chemistry, we went over bonds. For the second student, we went over sequences and series. Both sessions went well."
"For today's session, the student and I outlined her nine prompts for her final exam, which is on Tuesday in her history class. Specifically, we went through and figured out what examples would be best for each question and then eliminated the two questions she didn't want to prepare. For Sunday, she is going to flesh out the outline and each prompt, and we will be able to finalize thesis statements."
