Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed math problems from the state exam prep book and will work on multiplication facts and more input/output tables."
"This was my last meeting with the student before he takes the exam this Saturday. He had completed an essay before we met today and did a knock-out job with it. I was very impressed, especially because he accomplished so much all within the time limit. We then turned our attention to the other sections of the exam. Because of the time we had spent on reading and writing in the last few weeks, today we spent most of our time with math. We went over some strategies for extracting relevant information from the problem and for starting the necessary operations even while he was still processing how to get to the answer. The student did well with these and we saw some improvement even in our session today. I asked that the student look over all of the sections in the time between today and Saturday, and I feel confident that he will do exceedingly well when he sits for the test."
"We reviewed his homework from last week, I tested him on vocabulary, and we did a few reading comprehension drills. Afterwards, we worked on grammatical testing."
