"The student and I started with his packet of exams we did 2 math tests and 1 reading test. I also checked the test he did himself. He had only 2/3 mistakes and seems to know how to solve questions. We also used his prep test books and did several questions on them."
"The student was preparing for an oral quiz in which he had to ask and answer questions out loud. He has identified that he is better at reading and writing than listening comprehension and speaking, so we started by writing out possible answers to the questions, which were testing use of the imperfect verb tense. After getting comfortable using several verbs in the imperfect tense out loud, we wrote out specific answers for him to learn vocabulary from. Finally, we reviewed general vocabulary and expressions about the past - "as a child," "when I was little," etc."
"The student worked through some Chapter 9 problems to finish the problem set for that chapter, then we began work on Chapter 10 review questions to get a head start on the chapter's material. The material covered two-sample significance tests. The student was very happy he received a B on his last test."
"We discussed topics covered in Algebra 2 and then we looked at her homework over finding vertical asymptotes, horizontal asymptotes, holes, roots and y intercepts on rational equations. Then we did some physics problems over wavelength."
"The student's most recent set of three logic games was much better overall than he's been able to do prior, and the Logical Reasoning questions he's been doing have likewise shown improvement. After discussing some small tweaks to his Logic Games approach today, we worked through a few pages of Logical Reasoning questions together. When forced to use the systematic step-by-step method, his LR is also improving--it's doing the method without me there to hold his hand that we've got to work on next. Before next week, he's going to try to fit in two practice exams."
