Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I reviewed the writing portion of the ACT and went over some tips, included a sheet I emailed, that should help him use as much time as possible actually writing the essay the next time he takes the test.

Completed chemistry problem set covering molarity and dilutions. I have learned to ask the student leading questions to make him actually think about the problems. He's easily capable of understanding the material if he thoroughly thinks his reasoning through.

Started new material pertaining to advanced adult IV administration; based on weight of patient, a similar equation of D/H * Q =R was used where the dosage desired, supply, and flow rate were calculated or derived from the given information, solving for one missing variable.

Today, I very proud of the student and I cannot stop smiling. Today he showed me his first A in math. He had a big smile and so did I. We also worked on coordinates, a new concept, that he should progress in.

Worked on an ACT science practice session, and also on one for reading. We went over some strategies and I did a few passages with her, talking her through the data/experiments and the questions. I then had her do a practice reading section, which went well.

The student and I spent nearly all of the session looking at math problems in his SAT practice book. His homework for this week is to take another practice exam, as well as study any math in the beginning of his book that he needs extra help on.

The student has her state assessment coming up soon, so we spent today working through practice problems on solving systems of equations intended to prepare her for the test. We worked through solving by graphing, elimination, and substitution, as well as identifying and categorizing systems of equations. We finished by reviewing her most recent material from class, determining lines of best fit from data sets. I am very impressed by how much she's learned about graphing just in the couple of months I have been working with her.

The student and I started review for his trigonometry test next week. We covered graphing trigonometric functions with a methodology that makes the trig functions as basic as possible. He needed clarification on the parameters that modulated the amplitude and period of the trig functions as well as translation of the trig functions. We also briefly discussed inverse trig functions and their use in algebraic equations.

We tackled the topic of probability for repeated events and events in which the main pool of objects changes. I am confident in her abilities. I hope that the student is as confident and attentive on her tests as she is in our sessions. If so, she has nothing to worry about.

I met the student, and she explained to me that her class is structured with a quiz each Friday. This week, however, their teacher is absent so they have not learned new material and do not have a quiz. We reviewed her past 2 quizzes, the first of which was on magnetism. The student was a little confused on using the right hand rule so we watched a video and did some practice problems. This cleared up the confusion. We then reviewed the quiz on circuits and went through a few problems she had answered incorrectly. We distinguished how to solve these problems different when solving parallel circuits and circuits in a series. The student struggles with organization so we talked about ways she can stay more organized, mainly taking notes on looseleaf and putting them in her binder rather than in random notebooks.

The student and I met today for a session on algebra. We discussed inequalities, graphing, interval notation, systems of equations, solving word problems, etc. The student needed a little practice to help spark his memory of concepts, and he understands the important parts of each section.

The student and I reviewed a practice SAT that he had completed. He scored a 2120 on this practice exam. We then completed additional math and reading sections. For homework, I assigned 2 additional sections.

Getting into the perfect magnet, charter, or private school can determine a student's future success in education. The first step to getting into that perfect school is often the Independent School Entrance Examination. The ISEE is offered for three separate levels: the lower level for entrance to fifth and sixth grade; the middle level for seventh and eighth grade; and an upper level for entrance to the high school grades, ninth through twelfth. On all of these levels, the ISEE consists of a verbal reasoning section, a quantitative reasoning section, a reading comprehension section, a mathematics achievement section, and a thirty-minute timed essay. As most students who prep for the ISEE encounter it as their first standardized test, the exam can provide problems for many test preppers. ISEE prep tutoring with Varsity Tutors NYC can help solve these problems.

Varsity Tutors provides a range of ISEE prep tutors in and around New York City, each of whom has significant experience with elementary, middle-school, or high-school aged students. No matter what level a student needs, each tutor from Varsity Tutors carefully assesses the student's abilities and determines a specific course of action to take during ISEE tutoring. A tutor can focus on a specific section, test-taking strategies, or an improvement in general knowledge, depending on each student's needs. If excelling on the ISEE is the first step towards attending the perfect school, ISEE prep tutoring from Varsity Tutors NYC is the first step towards excelling on the ISEE.
