Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered the necessary concepts for her algebra homework, and made sure she was able to do the problems on her own, but we spent most of the session reviewing chemistry. We have been going over concepts and tightening up ideas in review while adding on new ones - stoichiometry, phase changes, and reaction prediction. We spent most of today going over worksheets she had corrected - great progress there, good utilization of resources - and also covered some more concepts of Kinetic Molecular Theory and the nature of heating and cooling. One big win was that she remembered the units of molecular mass are grams/mol, something she had been struggling with last week."
"We went over conservation of energy problems involving inclines and falling balls/pendulums to prepare for the student's quiz. The student is understanding the material quite well. He will have to do more practice problems to prepare for his AP tests, but for his quiz he is well prepared."
"The student and I worked on make-up assignments for days he missed. Most of the assignments were review so he was able to complete them on his own. We then covered some material on phase changes, a lecture he missed while on his trip. He was able to pick up the material very quickly."
"The student was having a great day during our session. He had completed almost all of his homework that he had for the week. He is doing much better with keeping his binder in order. We looked at his upcoming math lesson for the following day and got him working ahead."
"The student worked diligently today on his human geography assignment due tomorrow. We discussed the vocab words he needed to use for the assignment, and what they meant in the context of his everyday life. We also discussed organizational tips, and I impressed on him the importance of writing down every assignment in one place. I also discussed with him tips for beating procrastination, including breaking bigger tasks into bite-sized pieces, and powering through his work for 5-20 minutes at a time."
"The student worked hard on trig for the session, requiring only a little direction at the beginning to refresh his memory of the process. He just needs to continue to practice the processes outside of class. We also made sure he was up to date on all his other assignments."
