Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began preparing for his exam that will be taking place this Friday. His exam will be about Congress, so we began by reviewing chapter 11. He had difficulty with some of the terms, so we continuously went over that material to make sure that he had a good understanding of them. By the end of the session, he had a much better understanding of the terms and concepts, and was easily remembering them. We will continue going over this material and the rest of the concepts from the study guide on Thursday."
"The student and I conducted a general review of topics in Units 1-5 in preparation for his comprehensive exam. He still needs additional review, with extra focus on Units 3, 4, and 5 - he should focus on the a general understanding of the concepts and vocabulary, specifically, on how branches of governments are given power by the Constitution and how those branches interact."

"The student has an exam on Chapter Four next week so we reviewed some of the elements of diffusion specifically in regards folk and pop culture.

We ended by establishing what we will be covering this week and when we will begin studying for her map quizzes."
"Today we went over the student's homework, which included identifying regions on maps and talking through the various types of regions, such as formal, functional, vernacular, and perceptive. Then we talked about space time compression and epidemiological transition, and finished off by working through her vocabulary list and clarifying some concepts."
