Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I concentrated on reviewing her personal strengths and weaknesses. We identified some problem areas, especially in Math and came up with a plan to address them. We also went through her Math diagnostic test and worked through a few problems to evaluate her skills."
"Today I met with the student to continue our coverage of SAT physics material. The next chapter was an introduction to quantum physics. Much of the material (such as the contributions of famous physicists and the concept of discrete energy levels within the atom) was familiar to her. We spent time reviewing this material and contextualizing it to the SAT. I also referenced some applications in real life (notably lasers). One major focus of this chapter was vocabulary, since there were a number of topics covered."
"Today we reviewed any problems the student had trouble with from his assigned homework. He is very good at problems with a difficulty level of 1 and 2, but needed help on some of the level 4 problems, as well as the grid-in problems. I had him complete a timed grid-in session, after which we discussed guessing strategies if he feels he is running out of time. At the end of the session, I briefly quizzed him to see how he was doing with memorizing his "cheat sheet." He is clearly working hard. With a little over 3 weeks until the test, I assigned him a few more sections, focusing on the grid-in problems. He should do these assignments in an exam setting- quiet, no distractions, and with a timer."
