Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we onboarded and set up all of the student's sessions between now and the test. Today, we covered half of the math chapters and took mini-quizzes. Once the student gets problems set up she is strong--but getting them set up initially is occasionally a struggle. We looked at some strategies from the book to break down setting up the problems and that seemed to be helpful. I left plenty of math homework as well as homework in science to skim all the chapters. She will need the ACT book for our next session and to complete homework."
"Today we reviewed several example questions for electrostatics. We completed proportion questions regarding changes to initial conditions and other variable changes to charge, separation distance, and potential differences."
"We talked about accounting for cash and receivables, specifically allowance for doubtful accounts and bad debt expense as well as petty cash and bank reconciliations. The most complicated concept was the bank reconciliation journal entries, but we worked through them. The student had a great attitude! Since it was our first session, she gave me her syllabus and we talked about the class format, schedule, assignment expectations and tests, and then we just dove into the material she is currently working on. I am thinking of emailing her and asking if she thinks she could use another bank reconciliation practice question. I think she is going to be a great, very collaborative student!"
"Today, the student and I worked on basic vocabulary to read a menu in a restaurant (sides, entrees, salad, poultry, soups, grill, patty, and seafood). Then we did a review of subject pronouns and present tense for verbs ending in -ar."
"We continued with Chapter 3: The Real Number System. We will begin the next session with the drill questions, then proceed to Chapter 4: Algebra Topics. The student is beginning to express confidence in her ability to master the material. She has a very inquiring mind, and works toward deeper understanding rather than formulaic solutions, so I'm confident as well."
"We finished the first chapter of the book. We learned the difference in use of the adverbs "erst" and "schon." We discussed the conjugation of several German verbs, as well as the possessive articles."
