Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Today, we covered integral types, structs, and arrays. The student did very well at learning a concept after I explained it to her. As a result, she progressed a lot with her assignment. I told her to finish the rest of the assignment, and we will review what she writes to see if she made any further progress.
This was my first meeting with the student. He was a bit quiet, but he began warming up throughout the session. He prefers math/science and does not enjoy his reading/writing classes. We talked about how tutoring will work and the simple goals of making him more familiar with a test he may have to take in the future. We spent the second half of the session doing some practice math and analogy problems just so I could get a better feel for how he works and what his process looks like right now.
Today we worked on parallel plate capacitors. The student did well with the material and his attitude was positive throughout the session. I included strategies to simplify the material.
Today, we worked on phrase/clause/sentence error, appositive and interrupting phrase errors, conjunction errors, and modifier placement errors. The student was struggling with modifiers, so we finished up the session with a lot of practice questions on it. The student was generally attentive. I included a couple of tools for the ACT English section, such as watching the author's tone and finding the answer choice that is close to the author and his/her logic.
I was pleased to see some improvement from the student from last session. Although she's still certainly very behind in math, she's posting scores well above the average for both reading and writing. We went over the big strategies for math, like picking values for variables. I assigned her some work for our next session.
We covered hypothesis tests and intervals from chi squared to t-test to difference of means to proportion test. The student struggled most with using chi squared vs. a different test. And was somewhat mixed up with the definitions of the population parameter with respect to a confidence level in an interval. The student scored a 92% on the review sheet we went through, which is excellent.
