Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I reviewed the immune system. We discussed the cellular components along with specific responses. Additionally, we reviewed earlier material which the immune system requires us to understand. The student did very well and asked thoughtful questions that demonstrated and contributed to understanding of the material."
"We studied for her upcoming math test by reviewing the worksheet she had supposedly already finished. I quizzed her for deeper comprehension while subtly pointing out mistakes and missing parts of answers. I will be back tomorrow to continue studying and also to help with new math homework."
"He took a math quiz over inequalities and said that he felt comfortable with it and didn't have any questions about the material we've been discussing. For language art studies, his school has started a unit on poetry. To make poetry more interesting, we looked at four poetic songs to explicate the lyrics. We discussed imagery, voice and metaphor. He did very well. I asked him today if he would play some games at home to practice English skills."
"We worked on the student's fiction short story paper. He needed to fix all the edits his teacher provided on the first draft. Then, he had to add more to the story, and I finished the last edits. We also went over vocabulary for his Wednesday exam."
"The student and I began the session discussing his math coursework. He had just taken the Chapter 7 test and had yet to receive a study guide for the final. We discussed his current grades briefly. We also went over in detail what his finals schedule will be and the duration of each task. Furthermore, we discussed how each study session would look and what it would involve."
"Student A and I continued our work on fractions. He had a breakthrough with adding and subtracting fractions and applying his knowledge on common denominators. He seems to feel comfortable with this concept now. We also worked on multiplication tables and long division, which he needs to touch up on. Student B and I started work on his final exam worksheet. We worked hard on finding least common multiple and greatest common factor. He is having similar troubles as his brother with finding common denominators, which I hope we can make progress on in our next session. We have a lot of work to do."
