Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I worked exclusively on math. We briefly reviewed some of the basic calculator functions on his new TI-89 Titanium and plan to use the graphing calculator to solve a select number of algebra problems during our next session. I assigned him homework during the interim. His problems-solving speed has begun to improve, and I am optimistic going into our mock exam next weekend."
"The student and I went through his critical reading diagnostic test today. We analyzed the subjects and question types he finds the most challenging, and set up a plan of attack. Today we also went through several natural science vocab-in-context problems to practice identifying synonyms and patterns. We started main idea practice as well. He is to complete the writing diagnostic test for next time, as well as look over critical reading passages in his book."
"We finished going through the results from the practice test he had taken (we had covered most of the results from the last session). We worked on the critical reading section and specifically analyzed a long passage. I asked the student to explain the reasoning behind his answer choices. The student thought that our joint analysis (going through each of the questions and analyzing the specific corresponding text) was very helpful and he said that he thinks he is improving (and that his strong points seem to be solidifying)."
