Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over the typical goals and expectations for a new student. After that we worked through math, English and vocabulary sections. He scores very well in verbal, and needs help with quantitative."
"Today the student and I covered some problems she had to do for two of her written assignments. This involved graphing straight lines, calculating their slopes, y-intercept, and determining the equation, as well as graphing radical functions and determining their domains and ranges. She has made a lot of progress in both of the problems, and by the end of our session she was able to do problems almost completely on her own."
"We worked on chapter 4.3 which involved factoring trinomials of the form x^2 + bx + c. She did 39 problems in her workbook and she was very fluent with the problems by the time we completed them. It was very good practice for her as well. She needs to continue practicing math on a daily basis to increase and maintain her skills. She has been doing better in her confidence and ability and tries very hard during sessions. "
"We spent a bit of time on grammar; he is very strong on the mechanics of grammar but got a bit tripped up on the section that asks you to rearrange a paragraph or choose a sentence that would best serve as a segue between two ideas. We also spent some time on critical reading. We will definitely be focusing on that in future lessons. He's strong on vocabulary so he generally can get the sentence completion right, or at least make an educated guess. We spent less time on math today but we'll continue to address it in every session."
"The student worked on a puzzle practicing double digit multiplication. She also worked on plotting a reading a graph. She also worked on some word problems telling me whether she would add, subtract, multiply or divide to find her answer ."
"We practiced conjugating Latin verbs and declining nouns. We used both charts and practice sentences. The student is getting much faster at remembering what the different cases do. We will work on adjective/noun agreement, translating verbs into the correct tenses, and translating simple sentences using the vocabulary from 10-14 in our next Latin session."
