Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I reviewed with the student in preparation for his test tomorrow. I covered all of his material, trying to elicit answers from him. I asked him the same questions in different formats every now and then to drill in key concepts. In the future, I will try this repetition tactic, as he seemed to respond to it."
"Helped the student study for Evolution test and complete homework assignment. She needed help understanding certain concepts such as Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium. She was enthusiastic in learning the material. Tips used to help understand her understand material included mnemonic devices. Progress was shown in last week's homework assignment on which she did well. She seems confident going in to the test"
"This evening, the student and I looked over all of the major concepts he has talked about this semester since he is currently taking a benchmark test at school. He did very well in remembering most of the vocabulary that they had talked about and wasn't afraid to ask for clarification of concepts that he didn't completely understand. He struggled the most with photosynthesis and respiration processes and the different cycles that they had discussed (water, carbon, nitrogen, etc.) so I gave him detailed explanations of these and he seemed to understand them much better after hearing them another way."
