## Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We discussed problems involving projectile motion and kinematics in two dimensions. We related the one dimensional equations to those in two dimensions in order to establish similarities. We also talked about selecting equations based on the number of unknown variables, and setting up systems of equations when necessary.

We focused a lot on vocabulary and sentence completions today, but we also did quite a bit of critical reading. The students reading skills have definitely improved, and I was very impressed by the amount of vocab studying he did over the past week. Improving his vocabulary is still going to be his best bet for improving his overall score.

Today was a busy day for the student and I. We spent a majority of the session focusing on math and math review. The first hour of our session was dedicated to writing practice, which she is slowly improving on. Her reading skill is improving. The student is doing great in math.

A really strong session of work with the student. I had him do four science passages on his own, which we then reviewed. His performance was excellent. If he is able to sustain this level of performance, he will be able to achieve, and perhaps surpass, the score he would like to have. Our work will be to continue to work on improving his endurance going forward.

We reviewed one of the student's practice tests in detail so that we could focus on problems that he's found difficult in the past. We also covered basic strategies for the essay section. I left him with some extra sections to practice, including an essay section so that we can cover good assessment test writing practices in more detail next time.

The student and I worked primarily on analytical reasoning, breaking down different types of logic games, discussing strategies to tackle them, and going through examples. He's doing a good job of identifying key rules that lead to quicker solving. We also worked on a few logical reasoning problems to work on breaking these arguments down.

We completed one full reading section, which went pretty well, timing was great, and one full writing section. We focused on sentence improvement and paragraph improvement and then finished up by spending the last half hour planning essays. I think the student is getting more comfortable with writing.

The student has his test tomorrow. We went over all the special segments and their points of concurrency and all the area formulas for regular polygons. I tried to relate them all the information about circles and to triangles to connect it all together. He is doing really well. Right at the end however, we were given an extra credit sheet to work on, and he finally missed a problem, probably from going too fast, and so I was hoping this would not ruin his confidence for tomorrow. Any decent grade will help him at this point, but an "A" could give him a chance to make a giant comeback from where he was just a few weeks ago.

The student and I continued reviewing for his final. We went over boiling point elevation and freezing point depression and how these topics can be tested. We also discussed osmosis vs. diffusion and the different types of intermolecular and intramolecular bonds. I am confident the student will do well on his final and feel he is well prepared.

Today the student and I covered chapter 13 of her math text book. We learned probability techniques and how to think logically about possible outcomes using probability. The student is eager to finish her course. Her pace has quickened and it is hard to encourage her to think about each problem conceptually. Over all she is in high spirits and still very enjoyable to work with!

Today the student and I started going through the Review Book that I recommended he try. Although he does not have any official scores yet, I think he is already capable of getting 700+ on all three sections. We discussed essay-writing techniques. The student is a very skilled writer, and if he focuses more on specific examples, he will do very well on the essay.

Today we covered some algebra, but after getting stuck on (1/x-1)/(1/x) we transitioned to a discussion of probability, statistics, and combinatorics (combinations and permutations). Homework to continue finishing linear equations and inequalities drill as well as probability work to be emailed out tonight.

## How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you prepare for Competition Math?

Math competitions can be very rewarding experiences. Not only is there the possibility of prizes and honors just for pursuing your interest in math, a high score in a math competition can look great on a college application, help you get a scholarship, and even help you get a job. However, math competitions are inherently challenging. Because math competitions are meant to help you identify your interests and talents, as well as inspire you to learn more about math on your own, they often cover material that’s not included in the regular textbook for your grade. Additionally, each math competition is different, with its own approach and set of priorities, so a ‘general review’ of math often isn’t the best way to prepare.

A Competition Math tutor from Varsity Tutors can help you focus your contest preparation efforts so that you have a better chance of achieving a high score, while also enjoying the competition preparation process. Whether you’re preparing for a local math contest or a national competition (such as the AMC), a Varsity Tutors Competition Math tutor can serve as a knowledgeable guide through the entire preparation process--answering your questions, directing you to the best resources, and keeping track of your progress along the way. Your personalized tutoring will begin with an analysis of the test itself and continue with an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses in each relevant area. With the help of your tutor, you’ll develop a study program which covers all the areas of the test, addresses each of your trouble areas, and makes you aware of special test-taking strategies for each section of the test. In the end, tutoring with a Varsity Tutors Competition Math tutor will not only make you more likely to achieve a better score in the competition, it will also eliminate wasted time, reduce your stress, and possibly even increase your enjoyment of math.
