Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our first session and only two weeks after the student has started Geometry in high school. We reviewed Chapter 1, which was mostly vocab concepts such as types of angles (complementary, supplementary, linear pairs, etc.), the distance formula, and the midpoint formula. We spent the remaining time reviewing all of the material, focusing mostly on lesson 1-6: distance and midpoint formulae. We then moved on to learning the concepts in 1-7: transformations of shapes (rotation, translation, and reflection)."
"Topics we covered include but were not limited to: The complete processes of DNA and RNA replication, the creation of polypeptides, the series of experiments and discoveries that led to our current understanding of DNA and RNA behaviors and structures, and properties and behaviors of mutations. The student has an advanced understanding of the covered material and was able to articulate the material almost flawlessly."
"Today we focused on the verbal section and ability sections. Overall I can see an improvement, he is getting more questions correct. He needs to check over his work and read carefully. Many times he is able to self-correct. I timed him on various sections and he was able to finish with a few minutes left each time. He did very well on the estimation portion. We also reviewed vocabulary. Many of the words were his former vocab words from school. We discussed different strategies for the verbal sections. Homework- Timed synonym and estimation section"
"Student has been doing really well and his planner was very well organized. We worked on cleaning out and reorganizing his notebook and studied for his Biology exam. In terms of Biology, he seemed to have a much better grasp on the material then he has in the past. "
"We finished the math practice test that we had started during the last session. Both students were usually able to work through each problem within the time limits that I set for them. We only needed to review a few concepts, like the trigonometric functions and identities, as well as think through a few problems with a simpler approach."
"The student and I went over her bi-weekly assignment that covered public goods and externalities. It was a very positive session, and we were able to cover a lot of ground and discuss some areas that needed to be clarified. She had a generally strong understanding of the concepts and asked some insightful questions that showed both an interest in and a grasp of the content."
