Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to work on preparing for the social studies section of the GED. We reviewed test-taking strategies geared toward social studies, like reading passages critically, paying close attention to trends and labels in graphs and charts, and asking why the information is presented the way it is. We also reviewed a lot of content: US Government, economics, and 20th-century world history."
"The student and I went through the arithmetic knowledge and reading comprehension sections, and answered any questions that the student had on either of these sections. We will isolate areas of concern and do some last minute review on Friday before he takes the test next week."
"Covered math, reading, and wrote another essay. The student is improving with very session, I'm very proud of her! She's basically mastered the five-paragraph essay structure so that we can move on to particulars like sentence construction, argumentation, and word choice."
"Today was only with one student, who was reviewing for a test where she had missed a class because of illness. It was over triangle inequalities which, after showing her how to approach the problems, she seemed to do okay with. We also started reviewing for her cumulative final by working through a review packet that she had been given. She was rusty on a couple of concepts and formulas, but did pretty well with it overall."
"We went through her physics worksheet on Ohm's law, focusing on picking which equation to use, then plugging in the values. We went over the variable names and the units for Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Power, and developed some mnemonic devices to help her remember them. We went through her algebra homework on creating stem and leaf plots and finding mean, median, and mode. She was very good at these."
"We finished the long journey through flaws! The student really showed a lot of grit and kept working hard, maintaining a great attitude even during the tough times. She also completely excelled at different flaws. Next time, we will work on assumption questions!"
