Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student finalized his research paper and edited the final exam for the non profit course. He also submitted final drafts of all semester assignments."
"Student A did not have any homework today, so we spent the session working on memorizing his multiplication tables. His parents specifically wanted him to work on 2s and 3s, though we tackled several others. Today, he did a wonderful job and is very much ahead of where he was the last time we went over them. I had him write out the 2s and 3s in order, and then I quizzed him on them out of order. I also quizzed him by mixing up some 2s and some 3s for an extra challenge. Then we took turns picking other tables to study. We did 4s, 5s, 9s, 10s, and 12s using the same process. He put in a lot of hard work doing this and did not give up when he was struggling with an answer. I kept the energy high and encouraged him not to count but to try and memorize the number. He has improved greatly, and I am very proud of him. Student B and I worked on her vocabulary like usual this week, spending most of our time coming up with silly sentences using the words - one of the activities she could choose to do. She came up with great sentences and drew pictures to accompany them. We had a good time talking about the words and figuring out how to put them together to create stories that still made grammatical sense, even if not topically."
"The student finished a application essay and worked on an essay for. We are working on making sure all statements are supported and learning to be a more active reader. Good job!"
