Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through a practice test, working through all the problems the student missed or skipped. We talked about some strategies for when to skip questions, and how to do certain problems faster/as quickly as possible. We also discussed a plan for next week--taking another practice test, both in one hour and then finishing anything the student didn't get to in the first hour."
"Since the student is taking her exam this Saturday, we went over what to do the days leading up to the exam and also did a practice science and English exam."
"I used special stickers to motivate student to complete tasks she had otherwise found "boring" and avoided doing, such as matrix reasoning, pattern completion and basic critical thinking exercises. I used a "drawing game" to incorporate each topic and allowed student to quiz me using her own versions of the same games. At times she expressed that a certain task was "too hard" or she "didn't like it," but with the stickers as motivation I was able to get her to complete all of them. This is great progress."
