He also started studying for his social studies test over chapter 3. Also, he studied for his spelling test and he read for 20 min. He did a great job today."
"The student and I primarily focused on essay writing and grammar during our session. We wrote a practice essay together, and also came up with several literary and historical examples that she can use for her essay on test day.

We also went over all the types of verbal questions in a practice section, and reviewed algebraic equations and proportions."
"The student says she feels pretty confident about her Politics exam. Her next test is an Anthropology midterm next week. Today we worked on her reading assignment for Friday, and making a game plan for her Anthro studying. She is in a study group, and they divided up the key terms and will share their notes. The student will work on her terms this weekend, and we will review all the key terms and class slides before her exam."
