Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Today the student and I continued working on math. We took an in-depth look at geometry, then studied trig functions. I gave her a practice math exam to take this weekend. I hope to see an increase in her score compared to her ACT score breakdown.
This is my first session with this student. He is taking a very difficult high school physics course at his private school. The student and I spent the entire session going over concepts that he has covered recently in class, as well as concepts that he will be encountering in the next few days until our next session on Tuesday, May 1. Topics included: buoyancy force, tension, torque, density, temperature, and kinetic and potential energy. He is very engaged in learning and I can tell that he genuinely wants to do well in his class. I look forward to working with him more in the coming months.
Today the student told me about his first two days of school and showed me all the syllabi for his classes. He hadn't been assigned any homework yet in any subject but math so I went ahead and reviewed apostrophe usage with him. We also went through more of Virtual War, doing "Read Alouds," and he was very engaged, obviously trying very hard as usual to keep pace with what I read out loud. His homework for the week (repeated from the week before) was to write a descriptive paragraph about his average Saturday using correct capitalization for proper nouns and sentences, at least 4 correctly used pronouns, and descriptive adjectives (all the grammar we have reviewed).
Went over math: algebra and logic problems. Went over lesson plan and gamut of practice problems. Learned how to identify problem types and which methods to use to solve questions more efficiently.
We worked on her science packet, which took up most of the time. She did well after some explaining. We reviewed her reading packet, as well.
The student and I met for a short session, so we reviewed macro strategies for each section and then focused on specific concepts that she had questions about. We reviewed key formulas and I provided her with a list of formulas to review tomorrow. She is demonstrating increased understanding of and comfort with the material tested.
Today, we reviewed a math test in great detail, as well as the majority of an English test. On the math portion, I was showing misspellings how to bubble in appropriately, solve problems using logic, rates, ratios, and lists. She is quite skilled at interpreting data from charts and graphs so that was not a concern. The only thing I want to work on though is time. Regarding English, she did quite well when selecting which phrases were erroneous or if the passage was correct. She states she needs more practice on reading passages and then interpreting them (critical reading) so that is what she will be working on with me next time we meet.
Almost finished going through a practice test (2 math sections and 1 critical reading). The student has gotten much better at Critical Reading, eliminating wrong answers and not falling for red herrings on the test. She will take a practice test before next session.
The student and I got started by discussing the basic SAT format, specifically comparing and contrasting it with the ACT, which she has taken once before. We then began looking more in depth at the content of the Math portion of the SAT, today focusing on basic number and operation concepts.
We worked on a homework assignment from his textbook, mostly covering factorials. By the end, I was helping out the student with his strategies on the problems (especially since the last few were the most complex). I also asked him about his progress with his history paper which was scheduled to be turned in Thursday. He doesn't seem concerned, feels he is well-prepared, and that the assignment may get pushed back.
The student asked for me to check over the last part of her biology project, a flip book of all the body systems, before she completed drawing/coloring it. I pointed out a few things that she forgot to include, but overall it was well done. She has completed each of the sections for the project. She then asked if I could help her with some math problems that are a review of the things that they have done during the year. The book work that she had to complete covered percent increase/decrease, exponents, ratios - a variety of topics. She had some difficulty with exponents, percent increase/decrease, and conversion (for example, a snail moved 2 inches in 15 minutes, how far did he go in an hour). We worked through the problems and I gave examples of others for those that she didn't quite remember how to do.
The student got back a mini test that she had in math. I went over any mistakes with her. She also had math homework, consisting of five questions. It was on graphs of quadratic equations.
How can a Executive Functioning tutor from Varsity Tutors help you master Executive Functioning?
What is Executive Functioning?
Executive functioning is a term used in educational psychology to describe the cognitive processes that drive organization, planning and rule acquisition. Executive Functioning is the ability to regulate ones sensory experiences across a vast array of different disciplines and environments. It promotes the learners ability to organize, engage, and integrate all areas of learning in and outside of the classroom environment. When students struggle with executive functioning, they are often disorganized, have difficulty planning ahead, don’t follow through on expected tasks, and/or give up on tasks easily.
By offering tutoring for Executive Functioning, Varsity Tutors helps the learner to increase processing speed, emotional well-being, self-regulation of attention, and organization of current and new tasks.
This sounds like my child. Should I be concerned?
Difficulty with executive functioning is common among school-age children. Organizational skills and study habits are not consistently taught in school settings, so children often rely on their own instincts for how to handle organizational tasks, homework, test preparation and other significant aspects related to academic success. Every child handles these aspects differently; if your child is struggling in any of the following areas, Varsity Tutors can help:
- Using an assignment notebook
- Taking complete, useful notes in class
- Completing assignments fully and on-time
- Completing long-term projects fully and on-time
- Preparing for quizzes and tests by studying (separately from doing homework)
- Scheduling time each day for homework and studying outside of school
- Sticking to pre-made schedules for school and non-school related tasks
- Breaking down tasks into manageable pieces
How does Varsity Tutors help students overcome these issues?
Our experienced directors in Houston, TX begin by assessing the specific areas in which your child is struggling by asking specific questions that pinpoint difficulties. Once we have established the areas to work on, ourHouston directors will select a tutor who can provide individualized, one-on-one instruction that will support your child’s development in these areas.
How can I monitor progress in Executive Functioning?
There are three easy ways that parents can monitor their child’s progress:
- Be a part of the solution: Monitor your child’s assignment notebook, backpack and grades every day. Parents who are involved and ask questions help their children to stay on track.
- Be a motivator: Keep an eye on your child when they study or work on school-related tasks. Praise any improvement you see your child making verbally. This will keep your child motivated while keeping you informed of their progress.
- Ask questions: Speak with your child’s tutor, teachers, coaches, and any other adults that your child works with on a regular basis. Ask them if they see improvements in the specific areas that your child is working to improve. Their input is very valuable to measuring your child’s success.
