Session Summaries by Summer Tutors

Harvey, IL Summer tutoring
After some general conversation about topics the student has been studying in science and other classes, we decided to concentrate on an assignment that was due for the next day. The assignment consisted of a PowerPoint presentation that she had to deliver to a person of her choice, so this session I played the role of student and she was the teacher! I thought it was a really useful and productive session. She had clearly been paying attention in class and was well able to fill in the background detail for each bullet point. She gave informed answers to my questions and, for the most part, stayed focused on the topic. I complimented her on the care she took to distinguish in her answers between factual information she'd learned in class and speculation. When forced to speculate, she was careful to say what was the basis of her opinion, e.g. her general knowledge of science. We had some interesting discussions that led us to research a few issues relating to the subject. All in all, a great session that we both learned from!

First we went over the student's social studies test from last week. I advised her that on future tests, when she sees a question about a particular topic, she should write down every single detail she knows that relates to that topic and explain all her answers in as much detail as possible. When she studies, she should pay careful attention to minor details as well. I discussed organization with her and how she should effectively use her planner by writing down assignments on the date that they are due, in addition to the date when she receives them. Finally, we reviewed for her upcoming math test. In addition to going over the math (dot plots, histograms, and box-and-whiskers graphs), I gave her the following test tips, including when she sees a chart, she should stop and make sure she understands exactly what the chart represents and afterwards should she read and answer the questions. Also, after she finishes the test, she should take a new, blank piece of paper and do the entire test over again. If she doesn't have time to do the whole test twice, she should at least do over the questions that she was unsure about. Then she should check that she got the same answers both times.

We used the beginning of the session to update his planner to reflect what assignments he had to complete. We used the rest of the session to review for his exam which is tomorrow morning.

Today was a combination of Math, History and Spanish. For Math, the student was mostly self-guided as he seems to have a good understanding on the subject he's learning at the moment. For History, we went through and worked on the study guide as well as making flashcards for key words. As we made flashcards we also talked about the concepts, and again, put them in his words and into his pictures. Finally, we went over his Spanish quiz and talked about it. We also started discussing strategies so he can start prepping for finals.
