Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the expansion of the railroad in the west with regards to the end of the frontier in Arizona. We talked about the demographic shifts and the social implications inherent. I stressed the importance of Malthusian constraints on population and social implications of increased population density."
"In today's session, the student and I worked on U.S. History. We covered the domestic impacts of World War II and the Civil Rights Movement. Many of the assignments require lengthy readings.. She is able to discern details and understand the general gist of what is being said. We will continue working on American History assignments; she will become more comfortable with the texts and readings as she becomes exposed to more of them."
"Reviewed primary sources with student and discussed their relevance. Student and I did more work to research primary sources. Student will finalize her draft tonight and we will work on an analysis tomorrow evening. Her paper is due on Friday."
"The student has specifically requested practice exercises on the demonstrative pronouns, so we went over what they were and did some practice on them. We also looked at the irregular verbs and how to conjugate them. We are starting with the i-ie verbs. She has 5 that she is going to work on and practice with before our next session."
"We covered SAT math portions. I gave the student problems to practice to find out his weak points. He was okay with solving questions from Algebra, but had some missing concepts in Geometry. I addressed those problems and refreshed him with the formula he seemed to have forgotten. He seemed to have understood what we went through."
"We focused on the SAT today because the student felt pretty good about her ACT on Saturday. She struggled a little bit with the math questions on the SAT practice test because they differed from the ACT in that you sometimes have to derive a process for answering the question based on what you know instead of directly knowing the process. We are going to work on this to help her get more comfortable with it."
