Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I made a study guide for his test on Wednesday about formal and informal commands, combined with direct and indirect object pronouns. We also reviewed reflexive and irregular verbs combined with direct and indirect pronouns. He worked hard during the whole session; however, he needs more practice. I will see him on Tuesday night for a final review."
"The student and I worked on her History paper outline today. She's great at putting concepts together. I'm working to help her see how History is very similar to Math and it's about putting different elements together to reach a particular result."
"During our tutoring session, we covered many different aspects of chemistry in preparation for the student's chemistry exam on Wednesday. We went over his study guide and I made sure he understood each concept. We tried practice problems together and I made sure each type of calculation was accurate, down to the significant figures he used. We also went over the extra problems his teacher had posted online. He seemed very confident at the end of the session as all his questions were answered. I suggested to him that he review all of the material again in preparation for his exam. Great session!"
"For math, we reviewed FOILing, radicals, and multivariable problems. For science, we reviewed key concepts for his test (second part tomorrow), and I quizzed him on the material. The student was once again very enthusiastic and enjoyed quizzing me also! I recommended that he study the material once again in the morning prior to taking the rest of the test."
"The student had a three page essay on WWI due tomorrow. He was supposed to finish compiling the relevant info from the chapter and write an outline. We worked on stating the paragraph topic and identifying relevant info in the text. Then he wrote the three paragraph essay."
"We began our session by going over the concepts the student is learning in his geometry class. We talked about how to find volumes of various 3-d solids, then went over some problems in the text book. One issue which he was starting to improve was defining the given variables (height of triangle vs. height of prism). After math, we shifted to his science homework which dealt with scientific notation. We went over the conversion from conventional numbers to scientific notation and vice versa. I then explained the process for multiplying and diving numbers in scientific notation. We ended by looking at his Romeo and Juliet essay which is due on Friday. We read through the beginning together and talked through some grammar, convention, and stylistic errors that could be improved."
