Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student is reviewing for his AP Statistics exam which is on Friday. He worked on the practice problems suggested by his teacher, and I guided him where there were difficulties. There is a great deal to cover, and we tentatively planned another session for Thursday for a final review before the exam.
The student and I had our first session today. We talked about spelling techniques and being able to recognize patterns in words. We also discussed how to outline a persuasive essay and began to write one together.
Today the students and I worked through pre-calculus and physics homework. In pre-calc, we covered logarithms and graphing. In physics, we worked on kinematics, specifically projectile motion problems.
The students and I went over graphing quadratics and factoring polynomials. I made up several problems for them to factor and we worked on this skill heavily. This session was conducted via Skype.
The student finished all of her work and was "locked in" to solving the problems and answering the questions.
We went over the student's classwork involving energy and waves. We first worked on a drawing of a fictional Rube Goldberg machine, and then went on to properties of waves. We went over the lectures, and I explained the concepts of transverse and longitudinal waves to him. We also went over some ways that waves might be created naturally, as well as the difference between light and sound waves. Overall, the student seemed to understand the material we went over.
The student has a quiz tomorrow so we just reviewed for that. We went over trigonometry, finding the sin, cos, and tan of the two angles in a right triangle, defining them in terms of the lengths of the legs of the triangle, and solving for side lengths using this information. We also went over the ratios involved in the archetype triangles i.e. in 45-45-90 we have a 1:1:2^(1/2) ratio and in 30-60-90 triangles we have a 1:3^(1/2):2 ratio.
The student and I spent the session going over his latest assignment from his math class. The student had a little trouble with the rational equations at first - he would often jump to conclusions and apply inappropriate operations that would lead to simple mistakes - but soon we worked out a method for answering the questions. The student had no problem solving them once we had a technique and he was able to walk me through the remaining questions with few mistakes.
At today's session, the student and I continued working on the critical reading and math sections. We focused primarily on level three and above critical reading questions. On the critical reading section she completed for homework, the student scored a 14/19 (up from her previous scores) and received credit on many level 3 questions. She has improved her approach to CR questions quite substantially.
The session was a phone call. We specifically talked about 10 questions that the student had to answer to prepare for the midterm. Multiple regression, ANOVA, predictions and interpretation of linear models were covered. No scores were discussed, no struggles (just clarifying communication), no extra practice and no concerns for now.
1) Acid-base basic understanding, equilibria, titration curves, pH, pka, pkb, equations, problems, identifying different species, electrochemistry, solutions, thermodynamics, atoms, bonds, elements, molecular-structural formula, finding % mass, nuclear reactions etc. 2) No scores to review 3) acid-base problems, and titration outcomes 4) finish practice problems 5) No concerns
This one hour session continued our preparation for the student's upcoming SAT test. The student and I reviewed the section of the SAT pertaining to early human history. This section included Homo Sapiens, Homo Habilis, and Homo Erectus. We covered this section because the student felt that he needed additional time to understand this particular area of the test. The student and I covered this section of the Study Guide during the length of the entire hour. The student agreed to cover the section of the Middle Ages over the course of the next week.
