Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student wants to improve scores on all 4 sections of the ACT.  Even though he has taken it a couple of times, I started on an intro to the ACT. Next we reviewed concepts for the math section an identified areas of concern as well as the overall approach to the problems and the test as a whole.

The student was studying for a genetics test on Thursday.  We went over practice problems from a past test.  

During this session, we continued review for the student's final.  Tonight, we finished the first two review packets which included the topics on Similarity, Vectors, Trigonometry, and Volumetric Solids and launched into Algebra review, which seems as though it may be included on the exam as well.  This took up most of our session, as she probably hasn't been working with Algebra problems directly in some time.  Our biggest challenges were factoring quadratic polynomials to solve for x and manipulating expressions with constants instead of numbers.  She will have to practice her Algebra more if she is to become more fluid with these problems.

Reading comprehension: The focus was on Main Idea & Details through the use of an internet website and a reading comprehension story with questions. The student was able to remember previous taught strategies and apply them to today's session; she has shown some progress with going back in the story to find clues to help her find answers. The student also pauses while she reads to try to figure out the meaning of a word she doesn't know before going on with the story.

Got through all of the student's reading homework. We worked on a few math word problems too before I left.

The student and I prepared for her math test by covering a worksheet on special triangles. I gave her two ways to solve: one exploiting her knowledge of similar triangles and one using a base triangle with a single variable. The student was most comfortable with the latter. Because these triangles required multiplication and division of radicals, I focused on showing her the correct ways to simplify radical expressions. In chemistry, the student was working on Lewis dot structures. She had half finished a worksheet. We also covered the use of double and triple bonds. Finally, I showed her how to apply what she had learned to the unique case of charged ions. Finally, I helped her review an English assignment.

We went over a variety of problems involving the relationships between angles and the arcs they "carve out" of a circle today. We developed a general strategy for these types of problems that involved identifying which of four possible locations the vertex of the angle was and then using a corresponding equation. We also showed how two of those locations/equations were really just short hand special cases of one of the other types.

The student is learning about molarity, molality, and solubility. First we practiced molality and molarity problems. So that the student could understand the difference between the two and how to go back and forth. Then we went over some basic solubility principles such as like dissolves like and the effect of increasing temperature on solubility.

The student and I went over the unit circle and discussed the acronym ASTC to help us remember when trigonometric functions are positive in each quadrant. We reviewed his homework, and even had some additional time to go over the upcoming sections in this current chapter.

We reviewed for the student's exam today, which included doing problems on Riemann sum, mean value theorem, and linear approximation. We talked about strategies for the exam.

Today the student began by working on her final exam project for her global studies course. She has been researching the nation of Haiti and its current problems related to poverty. For this project, she had to identify the issues related to poverty (when it started, why it started, etc.) and develop an idea to cure the country of its problem. Her presentation is limited to six minutes and she can only have 10 words on each slide. We discussed what to put into the presentation and then she practiced it with me. We also discussed her upcoming final exams. She feels pretty comfortable with most, but would like some additional review next weekend to prepare. I have the review guides, so I can give her a detailed comprehensive review next weekend.

I was very, very proud of his performance on his English synthesis essay. He received an 88 and exerted a good effort to produce a great essay. His writing was compelling and his teacher suggested only minor revisions. We went over those revisions, fixed the citation formatting, and prepared the essay for him to submit for his final evaluation.
