Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused mostly on biology - finishing the student's homework assignment and then studying for her upcoming test. We have decided that we will meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays in order to cover all the material that we need to cover each week in biology and math."
"Topics: Basic algebra, geometry (triangles, angles, circles, squares), word problems, percentages, fractions, arithmetic, coordinate systems, exponents Progress: Better understanding of the student's grasp on quantitative and math concepts. Will do a chapter next time and make flash cards on formulas, equations, theorems for topics presented, and perhaps practice tests."
"This was our final session to prepare the student for the test. We continued going over math exercises completing a few exercises for each testing point given on the exam website. The student has shown a lot of improvement in her multiplication and fractions."
"We started with the student taking Section 2 (Math) of SAT Test 5 (timed). Meanwhile, I graded Sections 7 (Writing), 8 (Reading), 9 (Math), and 10 (Writing) of SAT Test 4. When he was done with Section 2, I graded it as well. Then we started reviewing every incorrect question, writing why he got it wrong/what he could have done to avoid the mistake in the future."
"The student is becoming more comfortable with the material, and we are beginning to expand his mathematical proficiency well beyond the expectations of his exam. This session was spent creating, solving, and reviewing relevant practice problems."
"Today we did intensive work on RC, looking at how paragraphs are important not only to each other but to answering questions efficiently. She'll be able to take the practice test before our next session."
