Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Student 1 - Thermodynamic theory. Energy in the form of work and heat. Student 2 - Equations for simple harmonic oscillators. How circular motions can be related to any oscillating equations. Hooke's Law and pendulums.
The student and I only have one more lesson scheduled before he takes his exam next week. We've covered a lot and had a bunch of really productive sessions, especially today. I feel good about how he's doing. I assigned a full practice test for him to do over the weekend, and we'll go over it next session.
The student and I met for our session this morning, and we have our work cut out for us. I have laid out a comprehensive plan to attack his issues. The student has been given access to a test-taking structure and is working on studying that now. I will also engage him in drills on vocabulary and mathematical formulae in order to shore up these areas. I believe this combination of lesson plans will have the best chance of improving the student's performance on his next exam.
We started off with a few quick check problems, to see how the student handled percentages--he was a natural so, we won't have to cover those in depth. During this session, we worked on symbolism and logic problems. A highly abstract, math concept that appears on standardized tests. He struggled a bit--it's pretty hard to make math so abstract!--but he worked really hard and practiced on every problem. By the end he felt more confident but, we're definitely going to continue working on it in future sessions. We also reviewed number properties and, some basic ways to describe data (mean, median, mode), which he was clearly very familiar with. We did a brief introduction to reading comprehension, which we'll cover more in a later session.
General format of the exam, section types and lengths, question types, adaptive testing. Study skills for exam vocabulary. Plan for math review. Began math review: properties of numbers, PEMDAS, multiplying and dividing fractions, simplifying fractions, simplifying square roots, weighted averages, translating word problems into mathematical expressions.
The student and I reviewed a practice quantitative section. She was able to finish all but five in the time allotted, and there were only two that she was unsure about how to start. We discussed looking for important details in problems and making sure to check answers. Overall, she has definitely been improving, and with continued practice, she should be able to reach her target score of 145.
Introductory session - discussed general tricks, tips, and tools on the exam. Ways the exam tries to trip test takers up, we discussed two studying techniques (two-hour study breaks for a total of eight hours and the Pomodoro technique). We will focus on her strengths and filling in gaps next session once she has completed an initial practice exam to gauge current levels.
The student and I used this section to drill practice problems. We did a small selection of each question type, focusing on using shortcuts such as picking numbers and making sides of QCs equal. It was a productive session for practice.
We talked about what the student found challenging when she took the SAT in November. Based on this, we mainly focused on writing multiple choice and reading sections. We discussed specific grammatical principles (to be expanded on in future sessions) as well as overall test-taking strategies.
Evolution was reviewed during this session including details about Charles Darwin and his theories, types of genetic isolation and gene flow, radioisotope dating, and fossils. A full section was completed, and I suggested to the student that he should review/read the areas of the material that I pointed out/circled. Student is also learning the material at a decent pace and is improving in memory retention.
