Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused on math, reviewing subject matter as she covered her homework. Then, we tackled the English section, going over broad grammar rules and then spot-checking them with work from the book. She's put in a lot of work and is ready for the test tomorrow!"
"The student is doing an amazing job. We went over reading and science today, and she is right where she should be. We reviewed comprehension tools for the reading section first, and she got every question correct in two passages. Since her comprehension is clearly in a good place, we moved on to pacing. She finished one passage at about twelve and a half minutes with every question correct. We discussed ways to shave off a little time and moved to a new passage. This time she finished in ten minutes and still got everything correct. In the science section, I timed her at 5 minutes for each passage. She averaged about 4 out of 5 correct answers with great pacing. We reviewed the questions, and they seemed to make sense to her. Overall, I am very proud of where she is with the test so far. I left her with homework of two timed reading passages."
"We specifically covered basic algebraic expressions and equations. After that we spent most of the time going over the rules of exponents and their simplification strategies. We went over a^m(a^n), (a^m)^n, and (a^m/a^n) rules. We briefly covered absolute value, 3,4,5 triangles, percentages and averages. We spent approximately an hour on the exponential functions and their properties. Like always, he was willing to learn and had a great attitude. He is making steady progress with his math skills."
