Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
For this session, the student and I went over new concepts from her Language Arts book from school. The main thing we focused on was the usage of who, whom, and whose. After that, we continued reviewing from her Social Studies book. We also had a brief discussion about World War I, to ensure that she understood the background to her book for her book report.
The student completed and worked on a diagnostic as his knowledge has increased dramatically since his first test. I'm glad we took a new diagnostics, as he said there were a few topics he didn't understand. He shows great commitment to his growth in the math section of this course and continues to work hard to gain new understandings. An additional email has been sent to his mother in order to outline the next few weeks and get some dates set in stone.
We went over a strategy for how to go about the retrosynthetic analysis and forward synthesis project. Our first step would be to find any primary research being done about the molecule in question, and this would hopefully lend us some evidence about which starting material(s) to use and which reactions to be on the look out for.
Today we worked on another state assessment test math review. Topics we focused on included area of any given shape (rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoid, etc.), improper fractions, decimals, and formula. The student was struggling a little with area, but as we went on, the skills became clear to her.
The student continues to be successful in completing her multiplication tables within 7 minutes. Going forward, we will decrease the time to 5 minutes and add multiplication facts from 12-15. She completed several more problems from the practice assessment test. Today, we worked on the problems with which she did not feel comfortable or was not clear on how to solve. As we worked through each problem, we discussed locating the key words, and filling in as much information on the images the problem gave, such as clock, thermometers, tables and fraction strips. She is beginning to be more consistent in her note-taking skills and uses prior knowledge to answer the questions. She also did better with concentrating and staying focused.
The student and I worked on the Mathematics portion of the assessment. His attitude was good and we got along well. We will focus on Mathematics for the next couple of months. He is to complete the first 2 diagnostic exams on math for next time. Our rapport was good and we will work well together.
