Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a review packet to go over today. Things seemed to go well as he was remembering beginning of the semester material."
"Today's session was introductory in two ways. The student and I introduced ourselves to each other, and then I introduced her to the standardized test. We talked about timed tests, the topics covered on this particular test, and introductory strategies for each section of the test. Kara was relieved to hear that Social Studies and Science would not be tested, but seemed apprehensive, especially about the Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections of the exam. We worked through a sample reading passage, several math problems, and a sample essay prompt so I could get a better idea of where she stood. At the end of the session, I asked her to begin a deck of vocabulary flashcards, which we will be using for the remainder of the summer."
"The student and I went through what will be on her quiz on Monday. She needs to remember where the positive sin, cos, and tan is in order to find her two values. Towards the end, I think she was getting the hang of it."
"He did the homework I assigned him and understood it very well. He also figured out some discrepancies with the answer key on his own, which is a very good sign. Today we covered more of his review packet given by the teacher. I assigned him more homework. We will be meeting one more time before his final. "
"Since the geometry section was completed, we started on some basic algebra and other equations that will be used for the exam. At our next session, he is to have certain problems completed for the chapter so that we can move on to the next one to build upon what has already been learned. The student is doing a great job retaining the information and using it to answer questions."
"In this class, I helped the student translate several questions she had and clarified some others that came along. Little by little, she is speaking Spanish with more clarity. She makes great progress in every class."
