Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we reviewed the student's math homework and a written essay for his science class. The student is getting more of his work in order and he's clearly more organized."
"We discussed how to study for his upcoming religion exam and worked on making flashcards and a study schedule."
"Today the student had corrections to write for an English essay, some algebra homework, and a chapter to read for Spanish. We went over ideas for correcting the English essay and planned an approach. After, he quickly completed both the algebra homework and assigned Spanish reading."
"Today the student completed his history homework, which covered the Bill of Rights and the rights provided by the first 10 amendments. We then worked on his science packet, which covered trends of the Periodic Table, characteristics of metals and nonmetals, and radioactivity. He was able to get all of his work finished!"
"Today the student and I reviewed his science lab briefly, but the majority of our study focused on his upcoming US history exam. He showed a great understanding of key concepts we began studying last week, and he seemed to have a solid grasp of every key term that is likely to appear on the exam. Great work today and good luck Thursday!"
"At yesterday's session, the student and I focused on two main things: a research project for science in which he had to make a PowerPoint presentation on the element nitrogen, and taking an initial look at the high school applications that he will be submitting this winter. Throughout the completion of his research project, we used several research techniques to be strategic and efficient when searching for specific pieces of information. He completed about 80% of the PowerPoint, and then we moved on to the high school essay questions in the interest of time. We looked through the various short answer essays he will be expected to write and submit, and purely focused on the brainstorming process. I advised him on some of the common themes high school admissions officers may be looking for. By next week's session, he is going to take a look at the longer essay options and choose which essay he wants to write."
