Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked through her PowerPoint and text on Evolution in preparation for her test on Tuesday. I used multiple teaching methods, including teach back, to test her knowledge of the material we covered."
"We marked new words added to the student's dictionary for chapter 6. He began writing his summary for chapter 4. He will finish the summary before we meet again."
"The student did an old test as practice, then we went over it and corrected his mistakes. This helped his confidence level. After that we went through the practice test; he knew how to do most of the questions, but the ones he didn't I helped clarify. At the end, we went over test taking strategies and what I did when I took that class to be successful."
"Went over tonight's homework addressing any gaps in knowledge of material and talked about what to expect in terms of new material for the coming week. Afterwards we went back over and reviewed for the student's upcoming retake, and did a little mini quiz to help him practice doing problems under time."
"The student seems to be a kinesthetic learner, so exercises are geared towards activity/engagement. We reviewed last lesson's script with vocabulary. I introduced new vocabulary, future tense, more complicated sentence structure which we acted out together, translating into Spanish"
"The student continued work on his notes for Chapter 15 (on the "national superstars" at the constitutional convention), and then discussed his potential approach to a history project on the history of social media, which involves a social media "star" musician."
