Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During the student's third session we focused on Tutoring Goal(s) 1, 2, 3, and 4 which involved teaching her to problem solve, building the student's confidence, going over her assigned homework, and identifying an areas that may be gaps in her prior education. This session focused mainly on beginning a discussion of physics, reviewing her assigned homework in algebra, and making sure that she had the confidence and the skills to complete it."
"Topics covered included an overview of terms, acceleration and velocity problems, and dimensional analysis to prepare the student for his assessment the following day."
"The student and I met, and she explained her specific needs- specifically that she needs her tutor(s) to read her class material and discuss it with her verbally, as well as type up notes. She asked me to help with her class 'Lead in West Philadelphia,' a community-service based environmental studies course that requires a lot of reading. For each article, she first gave me her impressions, and then we discussed the arguments from each article at length. I gave her the opportunity to ask questions at the end of each discussion. I believe her comprehension of the articles was quite good, and that with my reading help, she will be able to do well in the course."
