Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student and I had quite a successful session on Sunday, and we accomplished our goal of creating a solid draft of his paper. I mentioned this on Sunday, but I would like to emphasize it again: the process doesn't stop here. He is going to do some additional editing, confirming that the grammar is correct and that it meets all the requirements of the rubric for the assignment. We worked on brainstorming, organizing our thoughts, and focusing our writing to answer the specific question asked. It's clear that the student has a grasp on the material, and is able to express that knowledge quite successfully, and we made it our goal yesterday to both entertain every idea, and discard the ones that weren't germane to the task at hand. I was emphasizing that every idea is valuable, some just aren't useful to our specific task. I look forward to our next meeting.
The student worked on arithmetic: integers, fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers, positive/negative, even/odd, prime numbers, composite number, consecutive numbers, factors, multiples, percents, order of operations, decimals, roots and exponents.
The student had completed most of the work I had tasked him to do, with one packet remaining unfinished because he had challenges with it, so today we worked through that packet, which covered functions and graphing. In general, once I explained the basic procedures necessary, he understood the graphing problems.
We reviewed ser/estar and practiced irregular conjugations of verbs in the preterite and imperfect. I think they both understand it well and just need to keep practicing the vocab and conjugations.
The student and I reviewed order of operations for a test on Thursday. I have noticed that she is reluctant to work problems that are multi-step, even though she would know how to answer them.
The student is rapidly improving on the multiple choice section of the writing portion. and we have begun to work in more detail on the verbal as well.
Went over a little bit of everything- all of the sections went a little bit better, which is good news. Spent most of our time on math, but did science and the English section as well.
We went over lines 50-80 of Book 1 of the "Aeneid"; reviewed rhetorical devices; practiced scansion; and went over strategies for scanning dactylic hexameter.
The student and I focused on Math and Writing today. She only has a month to go until she takes her first exam. She still has work to do in math, and I will be concentrating primarily on this section.
I had my first session with the student. We did some reading comp together. He is able to do pretty well. We will work on the best ways to pull apart more difficult passages.
The student is going to have to learn how to reduce fractions so we need to work on his fundamentals, namely his times-tables. Went through 2 and 3 times tables. He is quick to catch on to concepts.
Final session before the student's SAT. Worked through 6 sections of a practice SAT, including essay, to review strategies for all question types. We will commence ACT tutoring next week.

How does a Varsity MCAT tutor in Los Angeles, CA help you prepare for the MCAT? While you may know that preparing for the MCAT isn’t simply a matter of rote memorization and drills, that doesn’t really give you an idea of how to prepare. Simply taking practice exams may not be enough, as the MCAT exam covers a wide range of skills—verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing—and you may need refreshers in certain subjects, as well as a means of identifying areas of weakness. Our talented Los Angeles MCAT tutors can help you with to-be-revamped MCAT.
