Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished Chapter 10, reviewing changes in social and economic structures in the North and Northwest during the Industrial Revolution and the immigration wave of the mid-1800s. From there, we reviewed the lead up to the Civil War, encapsulated in three chapters for which he was not in class, covering slavery, the aristocratic South, the Second Great Awakening and calls for reform and abolition, as well as the Compromise of 1850 and the Bleeding Kansas crisis. We are now in a good position to move forward to Chapter 14 and the Civil War."
"We covered the economic policies of the US government in the 1920's and Presidents Harding and Coolidge laissez-faire influences that shifted the market. Additionally, we examined how different global treaties were viewed and their effects on future foreign policy, including leading into World War II. The student is doing very well. We will continue with social problems of the US in the 1920's in our next session and review the study guide."
"The student and I went over how to attack the document based questions he still has to complete on his history test. We also reviewed his science homework on reading and understanding the different parts of the Periodic Table."
