Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student had a chapter test yesterday on material we covered last week. On the quiz he earned a score of 13/12!! We started to cover the new material - covalent bonding and Lewis dot structures, sigma & pi bonding. This is a long chapter so we are sure to meet again before the chapter test to go over any confusing information. I hope to hear good news about the test next time!
The student and I discussed two key math topics. We also discussed how to handle testing anxiety/fear. We completed several practice problems to ensure that he was able to apply the concepts taught to actual questions. He was then given a practice test to complete independently.
The student and I started with the rest of the reading section. He worked on a passage on his own. He does not struggle to read but needs to focus on the passage and find the answer through finding context. We moved onto the vocabulary section of the passage, and he didn't know most of those words, so we wrote them onto flashcards and reviewed each word a couple times. He had also started making flashcards for some of the vocabulary suggested in his practice book, so we reviewed those words as well, which he hasn't studied very in depth yet. We ended the session looking at the grammar portion of the test, focusing on rules which he missed, including apostrophes and forms of its.
Probability, permutations and combinations. The student did well in this section and seemed to understand the components necessary for the class. He was also able to take the fundamentals taught to him earlier this week and use them to understand some of the more complex ideas. He was skeptical about some of the things presented without proof, but I sent him an email outlining the reasoning behind some of the more subtle ideas of our lesson.
Today the student wanted to go over homework problems involving synthetic division. She was able to tackle these problems with relative ease, and only struggled once with the actual synthetic division part of questions (when asked to divide fractions). Although she had minor difficulties, for the most part she did very well on the problems and only required minimal assistance.
The student and I worked on more blends today. We reviewed "tr" and "st". We also branched out and included "cl", "cr", "st", "gr" and "bl" blends. We reviewed "sh" and I introduced "ck" at the end of a word. Then, we practiced writing/tracing letters, and did U and N in the workbook. She has made tremendous progress at decoding blends! It is quite remarkable! She struggled a bit with remembering diagraphs, so we will continue reviewing them. I have no concerns.
Tonight the student and I worked 23 problems in order to help her prepare for a quiz she is having tomorrow. The problems consisted of solving quadratic equations by completing the square and the quadratic formula and then using the discriminant to determine the possible number of solutions.
The student and I wrote thank you notes for her interviews. We drafted a general thank you note and then worked on the parts of a letter. At the end of our session, she put all of her thank you notes in the mailbox with stamps.
Today I meet with the student for the first time. We covered volume integrals via washer (disk) and shell method. He was having problems setting up the limits and the values for the integrals, but by the end of the session he was indicating what values to use. Overall, it was a very good session. I will meet with the student again on Friday.
The student and I worked with the laws of sines and cosines today in preparation for his test next week. He was a little bit shaky at first, but with some extra practice was alright. Good job today!
This was our first session, so we focused on getting familiar with her goals and experience with the SAT. We talked about general strategies for the different sections of the SAT and did some diagnostic questions to identify her comfort with different content areas. Although she is in 10th grade, she has already done an SAT prep course and seems very comfortable with the content on the SAT. Our focus will be on getting comfortable with SAT tricks and time management.
Went over a worksheet dealing with basic shapes like circles, rectangles and triangles. We had to figure out the perimeter and area of certain shapes using known formulas. Then we went over a study guide for a religion exam that was coming up.
