Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Kory in Essex County, NJ
Worked on finite math today. The student seems to have gotten much better at converting English into algebra terms, which is vital for this section. She originally had problems in the shading for inequality graphs, but has improved dramatically after using the trick (plug in zero, if the resulting statement is correct, then shade towards the zero and shade the other side otherwise). Keep up the great work!

Tutoring review by Rudy in Essex County, NJ
Today, the student and I started working with volumes of prisms and pyramids. We continued using the worksheet/review that his teacher gave him. After a few problems, the student was doing great as he seemed to get the hang of it.

Tutoring review by Ashley in Essex County, NJ
Today, the student wanted to review for her first exam, which is June 8.  It is on the basics of genetics up until mutation discussion.  The student was concerned because of the variety of questions that may be offered on the test, up to and including multiple choice, short answer, fill in the blank, and essay.

Tutoring review by Denise in Essex County, NJ
Student 1: Her 1-minute fluency was 40 words per minute, an increase from 12 words on her first trial.  We then worked on reviewing the pages we read in the story Fossils Tell of Long Ago pages 14-17.   Student 2:  We worked on math using the white board focusing on adding numbers that involved regrouping to the thousands place.  We ended by reading a story and summarizing what was read.  No 1-minute fluency was given.

Tutoring review by Michaela in Essex County, NJ
The student is taking an online class to make up an English credit.  We made a plan to do 3 assignments during his free period at school for this week in addition to additional work he can do at home.  We spent most of the session working on brainstorming, drafting, and editing a short essay on a book he read for extra credit in English.
