Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over his chapter 7 material since his teacher is regiving the exam. He's MUCH MORE confident and secure in how to tackle u-substitution and the other material in this chapter, in contrast to a couple of weeks ago."
"Today the student and I addressed questions he had about membrane transport and osmosis. We worked through several problems in Chapter 7 on these topics, and we looked at some videos and animations - from his book, and available online - as further study aids. It seemed a little helpful to watch several of the videos online, which were of higher quality than the animations that accompanied his book online. For one of the integrating book questions, he illustrated the function of basic membrane permeable to two kinds of sugars, but not to a third, and I helped clarify some of the concepts by breaking the activity down, addressing one sugar at a time. He has timed class assignments he will be working on, and we will continue on Wednesday."
"First the student and I reviewed his math homework involving ordering fractions, then he read some poems out loud. Finally, we went over coin money and played Money Bingo."
"The student and I worked on math and reading this session. We looked at the problems that she omitted on her exam and discussed ways to eliminate answers and approach problems that she was unfamiliar with. On the reading section we talked about vocabulary and how to approach the long passages."
"The student and I continued working through practice sections today. By now, she knows all of the strategies and content of the test. Our main focus is on executing this knowledge and managing her time on each section."
"The student and I completed an assignment interpreting and analyzing excerpts from a Federal Open Market Committee release and three other news stories using macroeconomic concepts. He had briefly touched on a few of the concepts in class but didn't have a solid understanding of most of them. I helped him flesh them out and apply them to our analysis. When we finished he said that with his improved understanding he would have no trouble finding which ones to use."
