Each Medfield Tutoring session is personalized to meet the student’s academic needs and personal goals
A typical full hour lesson plan usually includes a combination of:
Content: Emphasis is put on concepts that are misunderstood or not clear. After explanation, the student will then teach the tutor the concepts, making sure the student fully understands the material.
Review: Past/recent tests will be reviewed to make sure the student understands missed material and has a strong foundation in the specific subject.
Preparation: Preparation for upcoming tests consists of (in session) practice quizzes and content explanation that develops test taking strategies and confidence.
Development: Test taking strategies and effective study habits are taught throughout sessions. A plan of action for the week is usually created, addressing time and assignment management, long term and short term study goals and, if applicable, what is expected the next time we meet. If appropriate, communication with student’s teacher is available.
