Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has two upcoming quizzes - a vocab quiz and a social studies quiz. We spent the first hour going over the material for her social studies test, discussing terms and concepts (key figures and concepts related to the history and origin of Judaism) and then spent the second hour reviewing words for the vocab quiz. We went over pronunciation, definitions, synonyms, antonyms and the various connotations of each word. We also got about halfway through using each word in an original sentence. She continues to be an excellent student and is doing very well."
"The student and I worked on some math homework that he had, which he breezed through, and discussed/outlined an essay he is currently writing. I made sure that he really understood how to set up and expound on his topic, as well as organizing his thoughts so that his essay flowed. I challenged him to explain to me what he wanted to say and how he was going to put that into writing. As usual, I gave him tips along the way and he responded positively like he always does."
"Today we practiced reading using the "focus guide" for smoother reading. The student was able to recall synonyms for each of the words from the last 7th grade list of 15 words, as well as being able to spell most of them. We got started with the next 15 words from the list, noting definitions and synonyms."
