Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed his new humanities project. He must select an early 20th century artist, poet, or writer who was influenced by World War I and present their works in a way that demonstrates an understanding of how the Great War influenced their art."
"We studied a wide range of topics in review and preparation for an upcoming exam. We looked at the Muslim empires, Chinese dynasties, Renaissance Europe, and the Colombian exchange. We also spent time reviewing a list of important people from each of those subject areas. It was a good session."
"The student had made some additional progress in writing his paper. He seems confident in his ability to get it done before the due date, which is coming quite soon. He wanted help on formatting footnotes and his annotated bibliography. We created a footnote together so he could see the difference between the citation's format as a note as compared to its format in the bibliography. We will meet Wednesday instead of Thursday, and probably an additional time this week as he progresses on the paper."
"The student and I went over Chapters 3 and 4 for his quiz in precalculus tomorrow. This practice involved the properties of quadratic functions, how to find the vertex of a quadratic function from standard and vertex form, properties of polynomial functions, the power function, and other vocabulary terms pertaining to these subjects. He and I got a lot done in the hour and a half that we met, and he seems good to go for his quiz tomorrow."

"I tutored physical science for the student. We worked on the following concepts: graphing distance vs. time and using slope to calculate velocity, graphing velocity vs. time and using slope to calculate acceleration, graphing acceleration, simplifying positive and negative exponents, and setting up and solving equations for physics kinematics word problems. She did excellent on the problems and achieved a good understanding of the concepts."
