Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on three problems in cost accounting. One required that we create a profit and loss statement for the 9 methods of costing and then create the entries for material, labor, and variable and fixed overhead. We also discussed transferred costs and then ROI, ROS, and residual income metrics. The student has progressed and has a good grasp of the material we covered."
"Last night, she and I went over practice test 73 G, reading and science sections. We reviewed the questions she had missed. She did well on both sections. After that, we did five passages on the science section of test 61C, and then the first 18 math problems on that test form also. We talked through all of the problems so she can see how to approach them, especially the science section. She asked about tutoring twice a week until the test. I am limited in time, but if I have any cancelations, I will text her to let her know. For homework, she'll do practice test 70G on the website. She should plan to do one this week and then two per week for the two weeks before the test. She is great to work with, and I hope she is finding our time together helpful. I hope you have a great weekend! "
"The student and I had our final session tonight, as his second sitting for the exam is Saturday, and his first score was very solid. We did a smattering of questions after discussing the essay. Good luck on the exam!"
"The student and I went through two SAT math sections. He did some things really well, based on our past work, but had trouble with some of the weirder questions. The SAT tests imagination as well as math knowledge, almost as much as execution, so the skills he needs for school at the ACT sometimes don't apply. I gave him tips to deal with this, and we'll continue to hammer it out as we go."
"The student and I covered strategies for the reading section of the exam. I set a goal of eventually completing 3 passages with 100% accuracy. Claire score 50% on the first passage she did, but after we worked through various strategies, she scored a 100% on the second passage. She's a great student to work with, and she should have no problem meeting her goal!"
"Today we went over the concept of a removable discontinuity in a rational function. I explained it both graphically as a whole and algebraically. This time, the student understood the algebraic interpretation better, as it connected more directly with the vertical asymptotes in our previous session. Once she saw how similar the process was to what she already knew, she completed the assignment with ease. She also shared that she had gotten an A grade on her last quiz in math."
