Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked with the student on trig identities. He has a quiz tomorrow. He did fine with his homework. I discussed with him about taking his time & changing trig functions to just the basic sine & cosine."
"Practiced reading out loud from the Hobbit-- mainly focused on slowing down and taking a breath between sentences to improve flow of sentences. Also edited current event assignment-- focused on grammar, flow, and sentence structure of paragraphs. Practiced outlining an essay with specific/detailed examples based on an SAT prompt."
"The student and I worked on matrices today. We caught him up to speed as far as finding the dimensions of matrices, adding and subtracting them, multiplying by a constant, and multiplying two matrices together. He also had a worksheet on generalizing transformations to any function, so we worked on that concept as well."
"Using a coordinate plane in proofs and applying geometric formulas to lines and segments. Student is much improved in confidence and her ability to synthesize her learning and apply it to new situations and problems."
"Work on state test problems primarily focused on providing strategies for word problems such as underlining key words, rewriting the important parts of the problem, and the best way to approach different problem types,"
"This session we prepared for the student's upcoming Latin test the following day. The areas on the test she was particularly needing help with were noun-adjective matching, the superlative degree/ form of the adjective, and translation from English into Latin. We used the vocab she expected to be tested on to create noun-adjective pairs; we practiced declining nouns (in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd declensions) with modifying adjectives (in the positive and superlative degree). She was attentive and inquisitive, wanting to clarify a range of Latin questions before her test the following day. We also discussed strategies to identify noun/ adjective declensions and verb conjugations. She seemed to really understand the material by the end of our session!"
