Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we reviewed some more questions involving power momentum and kinetic energy. We mostly reviewed questions and how to approach various questions involving kinetic energy and momentum in 2 dimensions.  These questions are very algebra intensive so working them out took a great deal of time.

The student wrote his final draft of his persuasive letter, while making last-minute revisions.  We focused on handwriting, specifically "top to bottom" t's, f's, l's, b's, and d's.  We also went over the "format" of a letter, including date, salutation, paragraph indents and closing.  Then, we talked about next week's writing piece, comparing and contrasting, and came up with some ideas to write about.

The student is taking Calculus 2 over the summer. He has an exam on Monday and wanted to make sure that he was comfortable with the material. His exam covers homogeneous and first order differentiation, using integration to find area/volume, and miscellaneous differential equations. He has a good understanding of the material. We spent a good amount of time going over practice problems.

I spent time assisting both students. We completed Spanish assignments, did math dealing with inequalities, and went over one student's writing assignment.

Today we reviewed the student's introductory chapter for his class tomorrow. He is recognizing characters easier and is getting used to using the resources he has available to him.

Wrote out chronological outline of Cleopatra's life to help the student organize her information cards. I also checked her math set and had her correct mistakes.

We spent the session focused on pre-algebra today. We got 2 lessons done, and then did 1 Core Review. He's still having issues remembering past concepts, so we'll keep working on that.

The student and I covered entropy, Gibbs free energy, and organic chemistry during our session. She has a homework quiz, an organic chemistry test, and a thermodynamics test this week in her AP Chemistry class. She is expected to learn the organic chemistry section on her own. We reviewed the material for her organic chemistry test in the most detail and covered naming, reactions, functional groups, and structures. There were no concerns from this session. She is going to work on practice problems this week related to the material we reviewed in our session.

We have been covering division and how it relates to multiplication and fractions (two areas he is strong in). We have been working on quick mental division of multiplication factors that he already has memorized (e.g., he knows 8 X 7 = 56, so now he's focusing on how 56 / 8 = 7). He is mastering this material, and will soon be looking at more difficult division problems. He has a great conceptual understanding of division.

The student wrote all her work down in her assignment. One was an assignment that was current and one was an assignment she should have completed on Monday. Math was current and focused on stem and leaf plots in which she had no troubles. The missing assignment was science and it involved altitude and air pressure. All her work was finished and she had little trouble.

Today the student and I had quite a bit to work on. First I quizzed him on his Science. He has a test coming up over invertebrates. After Science we worked on his math homework. The student's class is beginning a new chapter on square roots. He had to practice finding the square of a number, finding the square root of numbers, as well as solving them within equations. He did very well. After Math we began to discuss his literature project. The student is going to be making a video on Animoto to illustrate the book he has been reading in class. We went through the book and chose two scenes from each chapter to illustrate. Tomorrow we will begin illustrating them.

During this session the student and I worked on her science project. We interpreted the graph she made and wrote her conclusion. I also showed her how to write an abstract for her experiment. I will review her final drafts on Wednesday.
