Per your instructions, your child and I reviewed as much material as we had time for every time we met. He seldom did his assigned review problems, which was his responsibility. I assigned review problems regularly, per your instructions, but he rarely made time to do them. This detracted from my ability to make progress helping him to shore up his fundamentals. I quizzed your son every time I saw him on the material he was covering in class, by asking him to do problems related to the material. This was also per your instructions. He regularly performed well when I quizzed him on the current material of his class. I tried my best to improve his study habits, helping him make flashcards of all his important & difficult equations, as well as for vocabulary. I reminded him to study these flashcards diligently, numerous times, even while he was on Spring Break. It was his responsibility to follow through with studying on his own time. I tried my best to help your son understand his homework assignments so that he could complete them, or so that we could complete them together. For each problem we worked out together, I quizzed him on which equation to use, what variables were given, which variable to solve for, and how to do the math to solve. I felt he understood the material when he could perform these steps correctly. He usually performed well with problems I asked him to do in lessons, and he claimed to understand whatever material we were covering. I have only seen your son twice since before his Spring break - twice in almost 2 months. I have not seen him with any regularity since mid-March. It is almost impossible to improve a student's grade if the tutor sees the student only once a month. I am very sorry that I did not meet your expectations. I hope that I have responded appropriately by informing you of the steps I tried to take to help your son improve his physics grade.
