Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the first part of the session reviewing social cost/benefit and externalities for econ. We made sure that the student understood the difference between negative and positive externalities and the mechanics that create such situations. We then focused on the definition and determinants of market failure. When he felt comfortable with the material, I had him try a problem set testing his understanding. He was able to breeze through the questions with little assistance. We ended the session going over the testing strategy for his upcoming geography exam."
"We started our session by reviewing the student's standing in his classes and made a plan to prioritize classes with the lowest scores and most immediate assignments. We worked on history and math, primarily upcoming assignments and material from class that was confusing. We also discussed plans to improve his grades in Spanish and history (talking to teachers about make-up assignments and better prioritizing homework)."
"We started the session with the first student doing some algebra homework that involved substitution problems with 2 equations. She did a good job, and I gave her some practice problems that she did very well. The second student worked on some algebra homework that dealt with real world problems dealing with proportions. He had a good attitude with the work and seems to be understanding the material."
"We started to dive into the final exam review the student has for Algebra. I decided to start with ratios, rates, and proportions. We went over how to cross multiply, check our work, and make sure we are keeping congruent measures. I will try to strategize a game plan to hit the first unit tomorrow if he does not need any help with his homework."
"We started to review for the student's final by going over past tests and making corrections. I found some topics that he still struggles on, so I provided him with additional problems. I feel we can finish the year strong."
"We started to review for the upcoming test. There were only a few points of concern going into the session, dealing with new formulas transposing exponential functions was the biggest worry. We spent most of today working on the exponential functions and left the formulas to our next session. The student is starting to grasp how the graph changes based on the base number and how to input values and use the outputs to help graph. We will continue to review in our next session."
