Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over fractions, order of operations, geometric angles, and multi-step word problems. She is progressing well."
"For math, the student worked on solving word problems and converting fractions to decimals and percentages. For English, he developed an argumentative response to why students should be allowed to play video games. He also revisited a book report he wrote and considered ways to include specific details from the book as evidence."
"The student and I worked with equivalent forms of fractions, decimals, and percents. Mom and I discussed the possibility of adding another session during the week to help him with his daily homework. We will meet again tomorrow to prepare for the test on Friday."
"The student has a love for breakdancing, so we went over a few phrases that involve dance in Japanese. He caught on to them very quickly. We also learned a few phrases on how to talk about other sports as well. We talked a little about the Japanese vending machines, as well as bento boxes that are sold at train stations and convenience stores in Japan to teach him a little bit more about Japan. We then went to talk a little about Pokemon and how the names of the Pokemon in Japanese are a little different than English, and how those names can be used to learn some new vocabulary."
"The student has really improved, and today was our last session. We are predicting she gets around a 30 on the ACT in October. She will work on her book she bought and try to do the ACT for the full four hours without breaking. If necessary, we will meet again in the future if she has more questions."
"The student worked on strategies for an effective essay, like including transitions and conjunctions. He worked on some vocabulary, but he must continue to work on it because I think that's the weakest area for him now. In math, we worked on proportions, percent change, and finding the new value when you put a discount or markup on something. I left him a practice test to do for homework."
