Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"* reviewed common SAT vocabulary words * highlighted unfamiliar words for study * worked through 2 sentence completion sections on SAT copy F Student did not have time this past week to attempt any practice essays. We reviewed a page of vocabulary words and I asked her to review the remainder of the list and continue highlighting unfamiliar words. I suggested that she use the word roots list in conjunction with the vocabulary list so that she can use root clues to identify unknown words in the future. We worked through 2 sentence completion sections, problem by problem, and discussed each option and why it would or would not fit the sentence. I left her with the vocabulary list, roots list, and two additional essay prompts. Next week, we will continue reviewing vocabulary and sentence completion. I also hope to have her attempt a timed practice essay."
"We worked on definite integration. He still has some difficulty recognizing when to use particular techniques, but he is getting better with more practice. He has a test on Thursday, so we also review other anti-differentiation problems."
"The student and I went over his chapter review together. We identified areas of weakness and did additional problems that I brought. He was struggling with factoring quadratics with a leading coefficient greater than 1, but after our session he seemed to be grasping the concept well. He has a chapter test coming up this Tuesday so we might schedule a tutoring session for later next week."
"Today the student and I worked on reviewing for his final exam. He informed me that his final exam is two weeks away, so he is going to further work on reviewing all the material and plans on asking specific questions the next time we meet. I gave him some study tips and some note taking and test skills that will help with his final exam."
"The student and I reviewed for his upcoming test on fractions. We checked a portion of his work on his study guide. It consisted of comparing fraction, ordering fractions from least to greatest and changing percentages to fractions. He is going to review a lesson online in regards to distinguishing what is a simile and what is a metaphor."
"The student and I covered a few critical reasoning questions from her homework before diving into the easy/ medium geometry questions from the quant review book. She did well. I assigned her critical reasoning 8 for homework, and we will continue the geometry set at our next session."
