Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Today we covered ACT Math and English. The student should be sure to review the English section in the ACT book. Also the student should grade the practice problems, review them, and bring in any questions so we can really pinpoint problem areas.
*This Session: 1)Advanced Algebra, 2)Word Problems, 3)Basic Intro to Geometry *Assignment: 1)Work "hard" problems in geometry handouts 2)Complete practice test if time permits *Hint: Work carefully and watch signs - don't drop negatives.
For the first 45 minutes, I worked with Student A. We started practicing ACT English passages because he will see those on his English final exam. For the next 45 minutes, I worked with Student B, and we practiced the ACT reading passages, since those are more his weakness. Next week, the boys will flip flop their sections.
The student and I finished up the math section of our latest practice test today. Next is more of the reading for the student.
We focused on the reading section and strategies for maximizing his score: choosing which passages to prioritize, identifying key points and supporting details, breaking down questions.
We reviewed the student's quizzes, which covered solving systems of equations by various methods. We also did extra practice problems to practice negative numbers and solving equations with variables.
We focused on reviewing basic addition and subtraction. We also did word problems and money. She completed the time-testing worksheet for addition and subtraction.
Today the student and I started getting into the in depth way of looking at parabolas from our understanding of quadratics. We went over primarily how to find the vertex as before, and now the focus and the directrix using the p as the factor to add to the y coordinate of the vertex when y = (x^2)/4p and to add to the x coordinate when x = (y^2)/4p. We went over how to find the vertex form formula for a parabola given one of these three pieces.
I contacted the student's teacher and found out his reading level has gone up to a 10-12 from a 6 when we began in February. That is a HUGE improvement for him! We continued to drill his HFW for his April 21st test grouping the words according to those that rhyme. The student can also point out why words rhyme or words that are spelled backwards from one another (saw/was). We also read out loud from one of his new books.
We practiced more application problems. He still is struggling with picking out what information is important and how to use it to form equations. The student is getting much better at recall of formulas and being able to walk through solving the equations with much less help. His better understanding of the algebra seems to be helping immensely with his geometry.
We went over the questions that the student missed on Practice Test #7 - he only missed 3 questions total! Excellent. The student's essay was better than last week's, and we spent some time going over example brainstorming exercises. I then had him take another timed essay during our session.
Today we started looking at limits. The student just started this topic in class and has only gone through the very basics of limits. I talked him through the general idea of limits and how it's looking at what a function is approaching at a specific x value. We went through his homework where he had to find a limit using a tabling method or looking at a graph. He did just fine with the material. I also gave him a preview as to what the next lesson would look like where he would find specific values for a limit using algebraic methods.
