Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student and I worked on some conversational Spanish. We asked each other questions and gave responses in Spanish. For homework, the student was asked to read a book in Spanish and write down all of the words that she thinks she knows, as well as what she thinks they mean.
Continued going over radicals: -Simplifying radical expressions -Rationalizing denominators. The student caught on and did great. His only errors were adding fractions. Monday, I will provide more examples and practice involving fractions in all the topics we've covered thus far.
During today's session we covered the following topics: how to graph polynomial functions and how to graph rational functions (finding the vertical and horizontal asymptotes, the x-intercept and y-intercept and hiatus point).
We worked on multiplying matrices with different dimensions using the dot product. We did calculations with these and also talked about properties of matrices. We also reviewed trig properties.
The end of spring break finds us covering early Japanese art. The student used the AP review book as a guide to how the material would be treated. There is a lot of information to remember and he is committed to daily study in the final days and weeks before the AP exam.
The student and I spent a solid 2 hours working on her homework assignments online and reviewing preterite conjugations, stressing stem-changing verbs and spelling-changing verbs specifically. She seems to have a decent grasp on the concepts. I advised her with study techniques and habits that may be useful to her when studying on her own. We also worked on some oral pronunciation as she has an oral presentation group project on Wednesday. I sent her a few website links via email that evening with audio/oral practice to give her some extra support in preparation for her presentation. Overall, I can see that even in our a few sessions thus far, she is making progress and she is definitely dedicated to learning the material as best she can with her busy schedule.
We covered stoichiometry problems in gas phase. He has a very organized approach to problem solving. He is also good at keeping track of units of measurement. He needed some help in integrating the ideal gas law with Avogadro's law but caught on quickly. We worked a bit on keeping track of significant figures as this is a potential source of error in his work.
In this session, we went over limiting reagents, percent yield, and reviewed basic stoichiometry for an upcoming test. The student showed me a quiz over limiting reagents where she got an almost perfect score. She does understand the concepts and does well.
We went over her AP Biology assignments, regarding positive/negative feedback systems, cell signaling, and cell pathways. I gave her the Free Response Test, of which we did question 8. She was successful due to the fact that I guided her to the answer and question 8 was about cell signaling. I left her with the packet with the instructions to do at least 1 question before our session next week. We will complete this packet before the AP test, along with a set of multiple choice questions. She seems like she should be prepared for the test, but for the other test, she needs more work because the answers require one to recall specific knowledge.
We went over a bit of Chemistry, looking at types of radiation and their notation. The student had a pretty good grasp of this, however, so we shifted to Geometry and worked on drawing the nets of polyhedrons. She had some difficulty visualizing a 3D object unfolded onto a 2D surface, so she got scissors and cut out nets from a worksheet she had from class. We looked at how they folded together, and this helped her. The next step is calculating the surface areas of these nets.
The student has her final in 3 days, so we spent the session reviewing coursework that she was having a hard time with. Overall, I was happy to have worked with her and I'm glad her grades have improved from a D to B!
Today we started working with podcasts. We worked on verbs conjugations using an exercise that helps memorizing them. We did for the present tense of regular verbs. Then we listened to the podcasts to help the student get used to listening and process. He speaks good Spanish and he has a great potential to speak it even better. We practiced conversation skills for the rest of the meeting.
