Tutoring review by Hsiao-harng in Grain Valley, MO
We've looked through the problems that I assigned the student to do as homework, particularly the problems that she wasn't able to do. And I showed her how to do those problems. Those problems include factoring equations that are challenging, completing the square, a bit of using the quadratic formula, and solving proportions.

Tutoring review by Asta in Grain Valley, MO
I reviewed the student over how to find the surface area of a sphere and guided her through her homework. Afterwards, because she has a quiz coming up, I gave her some practice problems to do regarding finding lateral and surface areas of prisms, pyramids, and cones. We spent the last half hour doing more review for her upcoming history test.

Tutoring review by Richard in Grain Valley, MO
During our second session, the student and I reviewed what we did earlier in the week. When asked to provide feedback, he said that it was helpful to have tutoring support to re-write test material to improve his score that we had discussed. Additionally, he said that he saw the practicality of improving his study and organizational skills. His statement provided the perfect transition for us to continue using the SOAR Curriculum. Having briefly explored Chapter 1 through discussion of multiple intelligences and identifying his own, we then proceeded to read and discuss the next 2 chapters on prioritizing, identifying, and taking action needed to complete goals. The student completed a series of questions and statements. That process led to writing specific action steps to complete his 4 goals. He seemed engaged and was able to converse and respond verbally and in writing. His homework includes reading chapter 4, which covers assembling and using a daily planner. At the close of our time together, he, his mother, and I explored the amount of time appropriate for his twice weekly tutoring sessions. At this point, we agreed that an hour long tutoring session seems to meet his educational needs. There maybe occasions where a session may organically extend to 90 minutes. For example, if he needed additional support and help in completing upcoming homework assignments and long-term projects. My recommendation is that we take this approach in upcoming sessions, being flexible to have sessions run from 60 to 90 minutes.

Tutoring review by Kevin in Grain Valley, MO
Today we covered topics relating to substitution reactions. Specifically we discussed reactivity, stereochemistry, and distinguishing between SN1 and SN2 reactions. For reactivity we related it back to stability. Stereochemistry was clear after discussing reaction mechanisms. Distinguishing reactions was accomplished by examining nucleophile strength, nature of the solvent, and substitution of the substrate. The student seemed confident in the application of these concepts.
