Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on an online ELA test first. She read two passages and answered questions about both. She was able to get the main idea and answer questions correctly when she read out loud and discussed with me. I then checked her homework packet, marked her mistakes in ELA and math and had her redo the problems."
"The student worked on two packets today and he did great! He has gotten better at process of elimination and not using outside information to answer a question. I also left him with a math packet do on his own before the math state test."
"The student said he got a 98 on his fractions test and 100 on his geography test. We went over his math homework which was review of all concepts he has previously learned. He did pretty well with this. He then finished his rough draft of a letter for class and worked on reading his chapter in his social studies book. He made sure to take very thorough notes. Currently in math, they are working on measurement, which he seems to do pretty well with this subject."
"Waiting on math quiz grade from last session. Computer science test coming up. Discussed scanning and went over how to look for AP questions for the topic online. Computer science review books will be helpful for unclear material. Japanese quiz tomorrow which he tells me he is prepared for. Emphasized reviewing for it. Lit has a project this week on discussing imagery and detail for his memoir, Glass Castle. Discussed scenes from story using imagery and detail. I quizzed him on the 5 main scientists/concepts and left him with a note sheet. I brought semicolon, commander and capitalization work to go over for the quiz. Emphasized planning ahead, more writing in his planner and continual review nightly in all classes."
"We began the session by going through his notebooks and binders to see what papers have not been organized as they should have been. We hole-punched some of those things and secured them in their appropriate sections for each class. We then worked on his geometry homework and finished the session working on his world history test review. He has four tests this week, so he will be studying quite a bit."
"We completed his science homework and finished it up with spelling sheets I printed out because I think he is struggling in grammar and spelling. He is paying better attention. I think he is committed to doing better in school."
