Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student read a science article about dinosaurs from the "Time for Kids" reading program. He also answered several comprehension questions about the article. He then read from the book "On Writing." He then read from the novel "Captain Courageous.""
"This tutoring session consisted of review of pre-primer sight words. The student is making some progress with this skill. We also did number recognition of numbers 11-20. He is making some progress. This was a very productive tutoring session."
"This was our first session so we covered a wide range of topics to identify strengths and weaknesses. We worked through the bulk of a practice exam for a teacher certification test. We discussed how to handle probability questions, Venn diagrams, identifying rational numbers, integers and whole numbers, multiplication and division of fractions and the equation of a line."
"This was our first session, so we went through the student's ACT study book to overview the concepts that she is having trouble with. We spent time on exponents and systems of equations, which she was able to do well on once we discussed techniques for breaking the problems down. She is going to bring a problem book for the next session, so we will have more material to work on when we cover trig and several other topics."
"This was the student's first session. She is working on a specific curriculum in math. We looked over the current lesson that she has been working on (Lesson 28), completed several problems to ensure that she understood the concept, and discussed some strategies to assist her with understanding the skill. She is very bright and did a great job! She is motivated to learn and a pleasure to work with."
"Throughout the session, we covered a wide range of math skills, including long division, fractions, percents, decimals, pre-algebra, and some application problems. The student expressed when he had difficulties, took plenty of notes, and practiced every problem multiple times. We reviewed the practice test in its entirety and wrote notes next to each problem on ways to solve. We also went over test taking tips."
