Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed math, as well as some writing and reading. We have decided to focus on level 1 and 2 math questions for now and get the basics down before we attempt levels 3, 4, and 5. I think meeting twice a week will be helpful for her. We also discussed whether she may want to take the college entrance exam."
"Since the student had done a critical reading section for homework, we started by reviewing her answers and going over them. We then practiced the math skills that she had reviewed for homework, working together to cement those concepts. I highlighted the strategy of plugging in real numbers, since that seems to work well for her. To begin working on the essay, we went over the outlining and timing strategies, and practiced outlining, first together, then timing her on her own. Finally, we went online to see her actual exam essay, which she hadn't actually looked at since the day she wrote it! She was thrilled to find out that she did well on it and she had actually scored a 10 of 12. We then practiced a sample writing section in order to understand it better, and I promised that we would go over some grammar concepts in our next session."
"The student answered questions and gave excellent responses today. We also reviewed how to draw correct shapes. The student did some excellent work with blocks!"
