Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The first student had a very productive session. We covered several sessions of literature, and she had excellent reading comprehension. She also took a spelling test and did very well, although the words are not as easy as they were at the beginning of the year. The second student and I reviewed grammar, and then he took both parts of the semester checkpoint. It was 60 questions total, and he got 90% on the first half and 96% on the second half. We also focused on math. He took a checkpoint and passed it with 100%.
The student and I went over the practice math exam she did for homework. She did really well on the material that we've covered already so I was very pleased with her progress. We started working on some of the geometry concepts that she hadn't learned yet and she seems to be picking that up well. After that we did some practice problems online.
Studied for upcoming exam by going over rules of quantum numbers and electron configurations. Continued working with molarity problems that involve creating a balanced net ionic equation by using rules of solubility. Finally, continued working with oxidation numbers.
Studied the area of hexagons, irregular shapes, and some special triangles. Focused on how to resolve a geometry area problem through the relation with sides and angles. Reviewed the handout for the preparation of the next day's test.
Student and I worked on grammar. We worked on verb conjugations in Present, Preterite, Imperfect and Future Tense. We also worked on comparisons and superlatives. He practiced writing some sentences for examples. He is very open to learning and had no problems staying focused for the entire session. He is a bright student who asks a lot of questions and catches on quickly.
The student has a test this week, so we spent the session going through the review she was given. She needed to be refreshed on a few topics, so we spent some time practicing similar problems. I prepared a document containing all the equations, and concepts, as well as the way to approach angular momentum problems.
We worked on making predictions on what will happen with a story. We read 2 short stories, and he had to find the topic sentences for each of the paragraphs and then answer questions about the stories. Then, we moved on to reading his book, and we discussed what was happening in the book. We have been reading aloud so he could work on his vocabulary, and as we are reading, he writes down words he doesn't know. We discuss the context clues, and then we look up the definitions of the words.
First student: We went over ustedes positive and negative commands for regular and irregular verbs in preparation for his quiz tomorrow. We reviewed some common verbs as well as command forms for tu. His only homework is to prepare for his quiz on Friday by practicing ustedes commands, and he should pay extra attention to the irregular forms (poner, hacer, tener, ser, etc.). Second student: We went over a practice test from last week, reviewed previous vocab, and corrected tutoring homework. She had everything done and is up to speed in class. We drilled some conjugations of common irregular verbs (preterite and present), which she did well with, then moved on to conversation in Spanish. She was able to produce well in both present and past tense in our conversation. Her homework is to memorize the new vocabulary. This was another great session; both students were attentive, had good attitudes, and are showing good progress!
The student began with an activity on reading and following two-step directions to add to and color a picture. He did great. He is reading much more quickly, and is able to sound out many words. He also is comprehending what he is reading very well, and able to make inferences based on what he has read. Next he wrote out his own directions on how to make a jelly sandwich. He was instructed to continue practicing his sight words, and to read as much as possible.
We worked on his Science Plant Adaptations homework. Afterwards, we spent most of the session preparing for a Science test. He is a good student.
We discussed the concept of language families as per Chapter 5 of Human Geography. I also spent time going through the basic structure of the exam and strategies that one should use while taking the test, specifically in regards to time management.
The student and I went over more chemistry problems today. He continues to make giant strides and is starting to develop a good attitude about chemistry. His confidence continues to build and overall he's making nice progress.
