"The student and I worked on going over his finals review guide. We worked a lot on factoring and the quadratic formula. We also reviewed some good concepts/definitions to put on his note card that he can use on his final this week."
"* worked through SAT math practice I on test prep website Student is very confident in her verbal and writing skills, and has shown great improvement on practice questions. We will continue to focus on the interpretation of math problems, and will review verbal and writing practice problems to ensure that she maintains the skills she's built in those areas. She will also be taking another diagnostic test this weekend to gauge her progress thus far."
"The student and I went through her Chapter 1 assignment. The assignment was scored 17 of 20, which was good. The mistakes that she made were minor: She got one problem wrong because she misinterpreted an aviation term. The student seems to understand the basic concepts of trigonometry."
"The teacher and I discussed the student's needs. We discussed which areas we should focus on and developed a plan for proceeding with the student's tutoring. The student and I worked on vocabulary words and we discussed some essays that he had written. I gave him the following assignments for our next session: Complete practice exam in his SAT prep book, define the first ten vocabulary words in his book, write a sentence for each, come up with two synonyms, and analyze the word to determine what in that word tells him the part of speech. Also, when he completes practice exam 1, he is to use at least three of the vocabulary words in the essay."
"During this session, we began a new unit in science, covering plate tectonics and continental drift theories. After our session, I told the student to read back over her science notes once by the end of the day, to help her retain more of what we had reviewed. We also spent some time on the student's math homework over volume of cones, cubes, and cylinders."
