Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today, the student and I covered some basic concepts with Triangles, Circles and Parallelograms.  We covered perimeter, area, 45-90-90, 30-60-90 triangles and their properties.  When back from break, we will keep covering concepts that she may have missed in the transfer process.  It has been a pleasure, helping.  

The student and I met for the first time today. We talked about how he did on his last ACT to try to pin point areas for improvement and we also worked on some math concepts. I suggested that he get an ACT prep book to work from. He is very intelligent - I was very surprised to hear that he got a 21 on the ACT. I think we can pull that at least up to a 26. In fact, I think he could get upwards of a 28. It'll take work, but I think we can get there.

Photosynthesis (Wavelengths, memorized equation, light dependent reactions). Completed ch. 6.1-6.4 in textbook. Assigned the student 6.5-6.7 to review before next session. I believe the student shows promise, and his comprehension level is above average. The parent and I scheduled additional tutoring sessions.

The student and I worked on reviewing the lessons and introducing the new grammar, sentences structures, and vocabulary. She is on the right track to her success in speaking Mandarin Chinese

The student is working on FOIL and we had a worksheet to do. She understands how to do it and did well.

The student and I met from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm Sunday March 16th. We reviewed for her test on Monday (3/17). We went over problems that I brought, those in her textbook and her teacher's review sheets. Specifically, we covered side lengths of assorted 2D shapes, some with similar shape analogs. She knows this material very well and I believe that she will do very well on her test tomorrow. Overall the session went very well!

As it was our first session, the student and I introduced ourselves and discussed her past Spanish experiences, including what it was like to live in Uruguay for the past 2 years. In addition, we went over what works best for her in regards to learning a second language, and as a result we've already set up a few activities to do during our future sessions, including film viewing and music listening. After we established the activities, along with a set schedule for our two-a-week sessions, we simply conversed in Spanish for the rest of the session. Overall, it went really well, and I'm excited to work with her for our next session.

The student and I went over the works cited portion of his paper yesterday and made sure it's written in MLA format. I proofread his essay and made a number of corrections to make sure he expands on a few ideas and concepts. We went over a few ideas and I helped him how to incorporate it into his essay.

The student and I went through several review problems together covering topics he wanted to study for his upcoming exam. We did several problems regarding algebraic equations and word problems, and several geometry problems involving parabolas and circles. Going through the problems, it seemed at times that the student was lost at what step came next. However, with a few hints, he was able to come to a correct solution to these problems. He needs to practice geometry problems so that he can more easily "see" the correct methods to solving these problems.

The student and I worked on fractions. We reviewed all the key steps in adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions reinforcing the step by step process of when to find LCM and GCF. I am really big on there being a consistent set of steps to avoid mistakes with fractions. The student honestly does well, and I make it my priority to give a lot of specific positive reinforcement every time he does a step well. It might seem a little corny but since he plays lacrosse I try to find connections between the mindset he needs in sports (What does your coach say to the team? What do you say to yourself?) and how relevant the same approach is to academics too. We did a quick preview of his next lesson as well - repeated exposure never hurt and from past experience as a teacher, previewing really helps build confidence for kids.

The student has a huge history paper due. Last night, we outlined the paper together, clarifying and streamlining his ideas into four manageable sections. He is going to do so well! We also celebrated his grade on his recent English paper and made a study plan for finals.

Today we covered nutrition and the human genome. During the first half of the session, we went over different types of nutrients, including carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, etc. The emphasis here was on the functions of these nutrients. During the second half, we went over chromosomes and genetic disorders. I didn't notice the students struggle with anything in particular, but he is definitely going to need to remember a lot of material for upcoming tests.
