This student and I worked live together online during the mornings and early afternoons. She connected with me from campus and student study areas. It worked great!
This student was very good at directing these study sessions, which were partly homework help and partly me teaching concepts in advance of his classroom topics.
This student was a student in the Canadian school system, Ontario. I was able to become familiar with their curriculum standards, testing procedures, and any different vocabulary used in class. Lots of great progress!
We met during his work day, connecting online live from his office conference room. We took old certification tests and used those as a basis for discussion of these Calculus application questions. He was an engineer studying for advanced certification in Ontario, Canada.
This student is also a math tutor (face-to-face) and needed some support in his education training classes. We worked together to help develop lesson plans in teaching certain probability lessons for his college class.
This high school student is very typical of a smart but self-doubting person, just not getting the way the classroom teacher was explaining things. I used her textbook and class materials for the basis of our lessons, and was able to show her different ways of understanding (using visual models and diagram strategies).
