Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Got the student ready for finals. Made a study schedule that prioritized extra credit assignments, and helped the student define terms the he didn't know on his English review. He has done a lot of work. I think he will finish this semester with passing grades.

The student took the Practice Test #1 Math and English subsections. We reviewed his wrong answers and he realized that he can do a lot better. I assigned Practice Test #2 for him to take by Sunday when we meet. We're really looking to bump his score into the 30's.

We covered the multiplications of polynomials using Pascal's triangle, did a walk through of the homework.  We then looked at the periodic table and trends. I explained the trend of atomic size and electronegativity. I explained the reasons for categorizing in rows and columns. The concept of ionic charge in terms of valence electrons was also discussed.

Went over a packet of old exams she had in preparation for her upcoming midterm. We covered older problems she remembered not doing well on, and felt that they were pretty easy now.

Topics: Reading, reading comprehension. Progress: The student's reading performance was excellent. He started to pick up a couple of new words: "soon", "garden", and "seeds."

Continued with math and algebra, finished the algebra section, math concepts, and started geometry. Covered up to p.197 of text. The student was assigned home work relevant to the topics covered today, he is continuing to work on math daily, was also assigned some varsity practice questions today.

The student and I covered chemical and acid-base equilibria in preparation for his exam. He demonstrated comfort with the material off the bat, but I reinforced many important aspects of practical problem-solving approaches for these topics, as they are calculation intensive. Overall, it was a positive session and good start to preparations for his exam.

We worked on the student's final Rhetorical Arts paper. What an improvement she has made! The draft that we worked on was looking really good. We rearranged a little bit, talked about hooks for the beginning, and made an action plan for more research.

We covered limits and derivatives, mainly sections 12.1, 12.2 and 12.4. I have to admit really liking introducing students to "real" Calculus! We worked on a limit worksheet and various textbook problems. The student has test over these sections next Wednesday. We'll meet again Monday.

The student and I spent our session equally on the Reading and Math sections. We covered the social science and Humanities passages in the English section, which tend to be the hardest to comprehend. She had a little trouble at first but we worked through how best to focus on and interpret the passages. She did well on math, and all she really needs is more practice to refresh her brain to topics that she hasn't covered in awhile. Overall, it was a good session and I think we made some good progress.

The student and I split our time between English Language Arts and Science during this session. In ELA, we reviewed concepts such as homophones, connotation, citations, and adverbs. We also prepared for the student's science test on photosynthesis. She needed to memorize terms related to photosynthesis including oxygen, carbon dioxide, and chloroplast. She had some trouble directly recalling the definitions from memory, but using visual aids like charts and diagrams helped her understand the connections between all of her terms.

The students dad purchased the SAT book, so the student now has a valuable study guide. Continued to do math problems, involving geometry, algebra, and logic. He needs to review exponent rules and remember to use the provided formulas in the box at the beginning of each math section. I believe he will benefit tremendously from the practice problems in the book, as well as our tutoring sessions because he was a bit overwhelmed when preparing on his own with a difficult book.
