Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed material for his next quiz, which he said was to include vocabulary on the news and the subjunctive versus the indicative. The student made some flash cards to help him remember the vocabulary, we chatted in Spanish about what we both like to read and watch in terms of news, and then the student wrote a mini-essay that he can use to prepare himself for his quiz. By the end of the session, the student remembered most of the vocabulary he had studied and seemed prepared for his quiz."
"We worked on reading comprehension strategies. She is now writing her own questions using the 5 W's. I taught her a mathematical music strategy, and it will help her stick to borrowing technique when she is subtracting 3 digit problems."
"The student and I finished reviewing sections 11.4 and 12.1 covering topics in ANOVA Analysis. She completed the Certify for both sessions and discussed the notes to 12.1. In the last 10 minutes, we looked at her Excel assignment. Tomorrow she will finish the 2 Excel assignments, and on Wednesday we will review for the final (by cleaning up her formula charts and reviewing when to use certain equations)."
"I'm still working on helping the student build her vocabulary and reading comprehension skills. This session we worked on verbal reasoning and order of operations. When we work the problems together she gets the majority of them correct but when completing the assignment on her own she get the majority of the problems incorrect. I suggested to her mother getting a book and a book on CD for her to follow along. I will be working on additional ways to help her in this area."
"The student and I worked on about 50 sentence completion and synonym identification problems and identified words which he did not know. Then, we did about 12 math problems, where he seems to be doing well."
"The student was caught up in macroeconomics. Therefore, he focused on a marketing assignment he had to complete related to the selection of a new product and a discussion of the application of the 4 P's (price, product, promotion, place). He needs to complete a presentation and while I provided him with a suggested format, we also took the time to research potential product ideas and he found several excellent examples."
