Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had an English assignment comparing the characteristics and stylistic devices used in speeches, legal documents, and personal narratives, and speculating about the role of fiction in learning history. We discussed all the topics and I helped her develop an outline for the assignment."
"Today, the student and I continued onto Unit 4 of the state assessment test's section on scope and sequence. We covered important terms and ideas that are seen in Unit 4, especially FDR's New Deal, World War I, World War II, and the Great Depression. She seemed to do fine with the material and did very well when answering the multiple-choice questions. She seemed interested in the material."
"Today, we worked on U.S. History. I began by checking the work the student had already completed. His answers were correct, but they lacked depth, which I discussed with him. We continued by reading and answering some of the other homework questions. Overall, he did well."
"We covered Early Nation and Westward Expansion during this session and revised the schedule to accommodate for the missing week. I also gave the student independent practice questions on the topics we covered to review on her own. She's gotten nearly 100% on each practice set she's done so far, missing just one question each."
"We split our session today to focus on both US History and Biology. In US History, we covered topics including the Monroe Doctrine, the Missouri Compromise, and Jackson's presidency. We also drafted an outline for a 750-word essay that the student needs to complete on the Missouri Compromise, describing the advantages and disadvantages to the compromise as well as her opinion as to whether the compromise was necessary for a democratic republic. In Biology, we covered topics in Ecology, including symbiotic relationships. We worked on and completed a review of a symbiosis project about bees and flowers."
"We went over Chapter 2 in government and then started on Chapter 3. The student should have a good basic framework for Chapter 3 when they start it, and then we can delve a little bit deeper in our next session."
