Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Sona in Crystal Lake, IL
The student was great to work with. He understands polynomials very well. He just needs to increase his attention to detail slightly, and he'll be all set. We also started coming up with strategies for studying for his history test.

Tutoring review by Jin in Crystal Lake, IL
The student completed homework 6.2 and 6.3 for math, which covered the topics of trigonometric. We also practiced Mandarin Chinese for half an hour. I helped him to correct his pronunciation and the four tones in Chinese. We also made a video together for the Chinese presentation in class. He was positive towards the materials covered.

Tutoring review by Kristopher in Crystal Lake, IL
We used this session to review a recent homework assignment. Specifically we worked on hierarchical regression analysis and how to interpret data from these analyses. The student appeared to have a good grasp of how to interpret the output by the end of the session.

Tutoring review by Emily in Crystal Lake, IL
Today we completed an essay brainstorm worksheet about the best day ever. I rewrote misspelled words above his writing, but overall his writing was great! Then we finished half of a 3-digit multiplication worksheet using a multiplication chart and reviewed a factoring 1 to 100 worksheet. I would like to spend 10 minutes per session on multiplication flashcards to help the student get more of the times table memorized.

Tutoring review by Maddy Grace in Crystal Lake, IL
This was my first session with this student. She's a pretty typical student for this class: doing her best, but overwhelmed because it's just plain hard! She said she didn't have a test anytime soon so I started going through all the important things she needs to know, laying groundwork and filling in knowledge gaps, making sure she really gets it. She seems to be quite capable so I'm sure in no time she'll be on top of it.
