Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we spent a lot of time going over grammar and punctuation. The student knows his grammar, we just need to work on his memory to enable him to retrieve the specific rules as they apply. We will continue to focus on that in the next session. We reviewed a lot of practice sections. We also worked on science."
"We went over some math concepts, mostly word problems and factoring equations. We did a couple of sets of practice problems as well. I left the student with some practice problems also."
"Today was an introductory session with the student. We worked almost entirely out of her textbook with reading comprehension exercises. We worked on vocabulary building (I had her write down the definitions of at least eight unfamiliar words) as part of that. I gave her some tips about reading (i.e. inferring meaning of words from their context) and told her a bit about the speaking portion. the student's reading ability is fairly strong and she got most of the answers correct without hesitation. She doesn't have a lot of time to prepare for the test but I feel confident. To end the session I gave her a homework assignment of reading another reading exercise from her book. By her next session I will have my own copy of the book."
