Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We focused on math today. First we went over algebraic fractions. She had done a problem set of them and did quite well on the ones she understood. There was some issue with minor mistakes, so being careful will be important to emphasize. Then we moved onto graphing where she excelled. Finally, we finished by beginning percentages. This is where we will continue next time. I sent her a problem set to work on this week."
"The student and I spent the majority of the session working on writing. We focused on improving paragraphs and identifying sentence errors. The student has gained confidence in these areas, and I am going to send her some more identifying sentence errors for homework. In the last half hour of the lesson we worked on math, we spent some time on multiple choice, but we focused on student produced response questions. We talked about techniques with these questions including thinking before reaching for the calculator and guessing."
"I covered the SAT essay and the rubric with him in detail, so he can know how to approach it next time. We covered his homework during the first hour and reviewed a math section together."
