Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We studied for the student's upcoming math and history tests. I created sample problems from her math book as a guide. She did well on all the problems. She needed to add a few notes to her note card for the test. We also did flashcards to go over the history vocabulary terms. She needs to practice a few more tomorrow."
"The student and I continued to work on solving two step equations, but this time involving inequalities. We also spent a lot of time doing practice problems and again focusing on converting word problems to inequality equations, and then solving."
"The student's parents were pleased with the progress he had made in the last grading period. This week, he and I worked on a math review for an upcoming assessment (a preparation for a standardized test). There was a complex problem that involved multiple steps that we worked through to use that same logic to solve complicated problems in the future. We also worked through an English/language arts worksheet about simple/complex/compound sentences. Lastly, we worked on state history material. He had new vocabulary to learn, and we worked on ways to remember new material by connecting it to material he already knew."
"The student and I got right to work studying for her upcoming science test after a brief discussion about how English, History, and other subjects were going. We were able to review in depth sections 8.1 and 8.2, going through all the vocabulary and essential questions for those sections. I had her write down definitions and examples after we discussed the concepts in order to make the learning stickier and so she had a comprehensive and accurate study guide that she or her parents could use to review in the future. At the end of the session, she had 8.3 to review on her own. Before ending the session, I asked her to come to our next session (in two weeks) with her finals study plan (like the one we made together for midterms) and a clear of idea of which specific science topics she wants to review together before her final. I wanted to make sure that she was planning ahead for finals and not leaving her study plan to make until we could work on it together."
"We went over his grades and planner to make sure that he was notating all upcoming assignments and exams. We discussed the importance balancing his time these last couple of weeks to ensure that he is well prepared for each of his final exams or projects. He then continued to work on his history review."
"We completed a worksheet for the novel "Into the Wild" for English class. We then did research for the student's power point group project. We researched how the civil rights movement impacted the U.S. He collected information from 3 sources following the instructions on the assignment. He had enough material to prepare at least 3 slides."
