Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed chapters 26 and 27, WWII and the Cold War, respectively. The student's next test will be conducted with a frameworks approach, rather than fact-specific. She has a good understanding of the issues presented in frameworks, as well as the content under review."
"We covered reading strategies, including division of chapters into manageable sections. The student seemed to have a reasonable command of the subject matter and good attitude. One challenge is developing a purposeful approach to reading and taking notes."
"The student is on break this week, so we took the chance to do a practice AP test, multiple choice only. He finished fairly quickly, so I moved on to the next exercise. I circled questions throughout the test and had the student write a couple sentences next to each question rationalizing his choices. We then went over the questions and discussed his rationales and whether he could make a case for any other answer choices. After this, we decided to go question by question and debate each answer's merits. I was very impressed at his focus today and the amount of effort he put in."
