Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered more grammar topics today. We used 3 practice tests from the test prep online resources-Identifying Word Usage Errors, Identifying Preposition Errors, and Improving Sentences. The most challenging was the last-improving sentences. This combined many of the concepts we had covered. We encountered challenges with dangling modifiers and using pronouns correctly. The student is taking notes on the specific grammar rules that we encounter and hopefully that helps her to become more familiar. We will have another session in February to accommodate her schedule and I'd like to get more into some writing at that time. I'd like to apply the rules we have been reviewing through the practice tests to her actual writing skills."
"We focused on fundamentals this session (i.e. basic operations, rounding, estimation and number lines). She struggles a bit with multiplication so I recommended that she pick up multiplication flash cards and practice. I also left her with some word problems to practice with."
"The student and I reviewed high-level math problems today. She did excellently on most; she's been doing quite a lot of math in school and there's a marked improvement both in speed and accuracy. We also went over essay writing and the importance of relevant examples. We'll be doing more essay work as we move on. The student will be reviewing vocab and the math cheat sheet as homework."
