Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
During our session on 7/22 at 4pm, the student and I continued covering the following material on Acid-Base/Aqueous Equilibria: Arrhenius/(No Suggestions)/Lewis acids and bases, auto-ionization of water (Kw), pH scale, strong acids and bases, weak acids, weak bases, relationship between Ka and Kb, acid-base properties of salt solutions, common-ion effect, buffered solutions, acid-base titrations, etc.
We went over a practice test that the student had completed prior to the session. We also did various logic games together, and we reviewed the tips for various types of logical reasoning questions.
Reviewed answers from Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension, as well as some Analytical Reasoning questions from Practice Test One in the Book. Mostly the student's problems with the LR and RC problems are simply reading them too quickly and guessing too quickly (she misses important words sometimes). We also did some Analytical Reasoning, where she is showing improvement. Our next session will be focused entirely on Analytical Reasoning. The student has a very positive attitude and will do well on the LSAT, in my estimation.
We worked on more challenging problems and reviewed some of the older concepts in algebra. For the most part, she has a strong understanding of how to do the math problems that we have worked on so far. I focused this session on making her think and applying the concepts she has learned to word problems.
The student and I had another productive session. He did very well on the reading section homework I had assigned him, although he did miss a couple of the sentence completions so I asked him to do some vocabulary practice for our next session. We spent the rest of the time discussing the writing section, going through improving sentences, identifying sentence errors, and improving paragraphs. The student did very well on these questions. He has a strong ear for what a proper English sentence should sound like.
In this evening's session, I first worked with Student 1 on her assignment covering polar and rectangular coordinates. I went over the concepts as she completed her assignment. She caught on pretty quickly, and was comfortable with the material once she finished her assignment. Then I worked with Student 2 on his quiz review worksheet over order of operations and point-slope form. He felt confident that he will do well on his quiz tomorrow.
We discussed our respective goals for working together. The student demonstrated her proficiency in basic paradigms, and helpfully pointed out areas she wanted to learn more about (especially word order and the sequence of tenses). I explained some core grammatical concepts, and explained some correspondence rules linking Spanish with Latin cognates in English.
During this session, we went over questions the student had and then went on to doing a practice exam. He has been getting 90-95 on practice tests, which is very impressive. Overall, this session went well.
We went over the student's timed SAT essay from last night. It was quite strong in terms of writing. We then went over more of the writing and reading questions from her practice SAT. Her reading comprehension is pretty good! We have reviewed topics such as matching plurality, matching verb tense, and parallel construction.
We focused on math in this session, as it's the area where he feels least confident. We covered general test taking strategies. Math topics covered included: negative numbers, exponents, dividing by fractions, coefficients of algebraic expressions, multiplying algebraic expressions (the FOIL method), and the concept of 'doing math with letters.' His homework for next session is: complete the sheet of math problems I gave him, and complete and grade one practice test's worth of verbal sections.
The student spent most of the session working on math. He practiced long division, and I taught him how to factor numbers and simplify fractions. I should note that most of the math that I have taught him, while relying on concepts that he has already learned, is above grade level, and he has still picked it up quite readily. We concluded by reading another two chapters of "Mr. Popper's Penguins".
We went over a practice exam she had. We used it as a study guide on topics she needed further explaining. She had a few questions as well of clarification that she asked. Overall it was a good productive session and it was a pleasure to work with her!
How can a Varsity Tutors tutor assist you in conquering Arithmetic?
Varsity Tutors offers Arithmetic tutoring . Our tutors are certified to teach K-8 grades, with many having a math specialization.
How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you with Arithmetic skills?
Being one of the three "R’s" (Reading, Writing, Arithmetic), Arithmetic skills are fundamental building blocks. The math skills learned in Kindergarten and Elementary School determine whether your student will be on an accelerated track to higher mathematics, or be left behind. In fact, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recommend in their standards that young students should already be using algebraic reasoning during Elementary School.
An Arithmetic tutor from Varsity Tutors can maximize your studenta’s mathematics potential. Our tutors can teach Numbers and Operations, Pre-Algebra Concepts, Geometry, and Measurement. With activities, games, and manipulatives, our tutors engage studentsa’ interest while teaching crucial math skills.
