Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"It has been wonderful working with the student, who is very pleasant. She has shown great progress throughout the sessions. She should practice these tables daily. And then continue 2-3 times a week until it is certain she will not forget. Also, she should read regularly, as that improves writing ability. And, write a short (4-6 sentences) summary of what she read."
"Today we reviewed more of chapter 14 math. We tried to really cement the process of solving simple equations: identification of the variable, creation of the equation, and solving algebraically. We finished the session with a review of current language arts exercises. We worked on identifying the theme of stories, and reviewed some literary terms."
"The student and I started our session by outlining a book report about Holes, including the setting, characters, events, climax, and resolution. We then spent most of our time working through his math homework. He practiced identifying polygons by the number of sides, and then we also worked on reading and drawing line graphs. He was comfortable reading a pre-drawn graph for information. I showed him how to use a ruler to line up the data on the x and y-axis."
"Today we did practice test prep. The student struggled with reading comprehension and vocabulary; but understood most underlying math concepts. I will continue helping the student to memorize his flashcards. This will help him with his math vocab and reading. Great work today!"
"The student and I covered more test preparation for next year. We worked in an ISEE practice book. We worked on vocabulary, math, and writing an essay in the book. The student did a great job with everything that we covered. We went over 20 vocabulary words. She seemed eager to learn and did a great job of staying focused. We had a great session!"
"The student worked on her math homework, finding variables in pre-algebraic equations. She also had a lot of history homework. We continued to work on her journal entries for Spartan and Athenian children, and wrote a paragraph for her science class."
