Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Over these past 5 weeks you have made a lot of progress, the student has much to be proud of. When we began, a problem as complex as the one that required us to use the graphical interpretation of integration to work backwards through the fundamental theorem of calculus would have been beyond the student's grasp, but on Monday he showed not only the ability to solve that problem, but to breeze through the standard forms of differentiation and integration that gave him trouble before. Way to go! I wish him continued success in all his classes."
"In our second session, the student and I focused on the verbal reasoning component of the assessment test, and dealt with strategies for solving problems involving analogies, synomyns and antonyms, and basic verbal logic. He quickly learned how to approach these questions and is improving in his accuracy and speed in reasoning."
"Worked through pieces of each 3.3, 3.4, 4.1, and 4.3 to try and get the student back up to speed. Ran into difficulty concerning optimization problems, but otherwise covered a lot of ground. Hopefully with another session or two we can be back on track."
"Today the student and I worked on revising her second essay, focusing on word choice. We also went through the sentence completion section of reading comprehension and began to work through the reading passages."
"Today the student and I exclusively worked on her giant packet of math homework. Like I've said in previous reports, she has improved dramatically in math and I'm very proud of her. She was working on decimals and their representation within basic arithmetic and she did a great job. I want to make sure she keeps pushing forward for her entrance exams because I know she is capable of doing a good job. I am working on a homework schedule for her over the break."
"The student and I practiced how to say airplane and asking questions. The main vocabulary term that we worked on was "this." We are trying to make it a habit for him to say this in Mandarin every time he encounters this word."
