Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student and I focused on her physics work, reviewing topics she covered last semester in order to prepare her for this one. We covered direct and inverse proportionality. We also worked on the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration, and problems involving constant velocity, with a particular focus on conceptual problems and graphing."
"The student and I reviewed all his classes. The student has not missed a class and is doing well in all. He likes the Statistics class and is doing well. They're up to finding standard deviation. For International Finance, the student is reading assigned articles from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. This weekend he is considering topics for his next speech in Public Speaking and paper for English. We will review these next week."
"Introduced "kids writing" to the second grader. Decided to work on writing without the word "and". Also will work on using simple sentences to avoid run on sentences. Read 5 short stories and worked on remembering little details in a story; names, dates, etc. Also read a chapter from a school assigned book and worked on vocab and comprehension per page."
"The student did well on the material we reviewed (Chapter 11). He had few questions on the worksheets we completed and was able to figure them out without issue. He is progressing smoothly in his Biology class."
"The student has received a packet for Chapter 9, so we read the review of the French Revolutionary calendar together. I reviewed the vocabulary with him and asked him to make note of any words he did not know and try to learn them before our next meeting. We spent the rest of the lesson reworking the practice exams because his teacher plans to use these for a test on March 21st."
"Student completed Spanish homework with tutor's advisement. Student reviewed and practiced for his upcoming Spanish test on: regular and irregular verbs in the preterit and imperfect tense, and the use of accents in Spanish words."
"I worked with the student on his previous materials since he did not have new stuff for this week. We reviewed more adjectives that can be used for personal descriptions and we reviewed the vocabulary he had so far. We reviewed the differences between ser and estar one more time and we discussed grammar details and practiced conversation. He needs to focus on conjugations and vocabulary. He is very good with comprehension and pronunciation. He needs to memorize a few grammar rules, conjugation endings, and vocabulary."
"We continued work on kinematics, 2-D projectile motion, and vectors. We also covered Newton's three laws, focusing especially on F=ma. In addition, we covered frictional forces. At the end of the session we previewed squeeze theorem."
"We covered many applications of logarithms, including logarithmic functions, plots of logarithms, and solving logarithms by hand and with a calculator. This led into solving exponential growth and decay word problems for applications, and setting up and solving these problems."
"To start off our session today we picked up where we left off during our last session, going over the English section of his ACT practice test. The student seems to better understand the expectations on this portion of the test. Before our session today the student completed the Reading section of the practice ACT and I graded that for him. He did phenomenally on this section, scoring a 32. We went over the few questions he missed and clarified some points he didn't fully understand. We briefly went over a few of the questions in the Math section to make sure he didn't have any outstanding questions before he takes that this week so we can grade and go over it at the next session."
"This was my second session with the student. She has a test tomorrow and wanted to make sure she understood everything. We reviewed all of the things she will have on the test: sum or difference of two cubes, factoring, quadratic formula, grouping, binomial degree of 4 etc. I gave her about 15 problems to complete. She completed them all successfully. I think she will do well on her test."
"Tonight we reviewed dates and randoms words from previous sessions over a conversation topic. we engaged in a conversation where we talked about today, yesterday and tomorrow, and a year. To make it more fun, I gave him a little tongue twister; it helps him to improve the understanding of different tones. Next time, we'll continue count to 100, and homework is the tongue twister."
