Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
I worked with the student reviewing her vocabulary words, she knew most of the definitions. She wrote sentences for the words she didn't know as well. Then I worked with her with the spelling/vocabulary words. She drew pictures for each word and she has a good understanding of the meanings. She will need to continue to work on the spelling.
Today, the student and I practiced picture sorts with the letters 'l,' and 'w'. We continued to practice writing the letter r in upper case and lower case. I also had her sort out pictures with one familiar and unfamiliar letter (g) to see if she could distinguish the sounds of both, which she did great on. She is practicing to learn how to write between the lines so that we can both improve on her handwriting. A new book was introduced to her with sight words that included 'in' and 'the.' She is grasping the concept of one to one correspondence.
He reviewed his homework with his parents. He was able to complete the sections within the time limit. Today we focused on Language and Reading. We discussed reading carefully and checking answers against the passage. I told him to be sure the answer is from the reading and not from his background knowledge. We went over Grammar basics, commas, noun/verb agreement, checking verb tense. We worked in my book on practice sections. (Reading 18/20, Language Part 1 17/20, Part 2 10/10.) We also worked in his book on some ability questions, and reviewed strategies for the Ability sections of the exam. Discussed building test stamina and focus. H.W.- Reading sections in his book.
I met with the student on Monday 11/25. As this session was our last one, we talked about his experience taking the ISEE - Upper Level, and we used the remaining time to review on his homework.
Today the student and I worked exclusively on the math section of the ACT, because that is still where she feels she can improve the most. We did short sessions of 5-6 questions over 5 minutes, then went over any that she got wrong or had to guess on. She took an online ACT practice test, but the format was a bit different than real testing conditions so while the problems were good practice, they did not simulate an ACT test very well. On many of the longer questions, she seems to be intimidated at times into assuming that is a tougher problem than it actually may be. With continued practice, this will get better. I left her with full sections to complete in her practice book because her test is only two weeks away, and we need to start making minor adjustments to boost her score. I do not have any concerns from this session.
I helped the student with her understanding of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. We also discussed atomic structure with the difference between protons, neutrons, and electrons. I also reviewed amino acid side groups and what makes side groups polar/nonpolar or hydrophobic/hydrophilic.
Went over practice AP test problems from the packets his teacher handed out in class. AP problems are much harder than classwork. We are making progress, and The student is a very quick worker so that will help him on the actual AP test. Asked him to take a Diagnostic test to check his progress before next session, since he didn't get to take one last week.
We began reviewing for her upcoming midterm by reviewing the properties of exponents and logarithms. We also covered optimization problems (finding local maxima and minima). For extra practice, I recommended practicing problems in section 9.1, which deals with finding minima and maxima in word problems.
The student will be taking the Algebra 1 final exam for credit. Today, we reviewed chapters 1-6 more thoroughly, and he said he understood factoring questions a lot better now. Next time, we will review chapter 7 and do a large amount of practice problems.
I got a hold of the student and her mother. We set up an appointment the day afterward because the student had a test on Wednesday that she needed help with. Because the test was devoted to Horace, we spent the entire day translating the poems from Horace that would be required on the test. Because the subject of discussion was poetry, much of the day was devoted to interpretation of poetic Latin constructions which are often confusing. However, in addition to this we talked about: the ablative absolute and the 4 ways of translating it (because, since although, after), identifying gerunds, and translating gerundives. The main issue for her was the tough vocabulary, so she will need to work on memorizing the words for those poems. We didn't get to cover every translation that would be on the test, so I told her that if she finished the remaining translations I would email her about slight corrections.
The majority of this session revolved around the determination of a limiting reagent in a given reaction. This required an understanding of dimensional analysis, unit conversion, and the relationship between molecular weights and stoichiometric coefficients. After that, we went through her lab notebook and I helped her with her introduction and discussing what she did/learned in lab. We then had a discussion on possible sources of error as well as places in her experiment that could be improved if she were to repeat it. We then returned to limiting reagents, but implemented percent yields and molarities - two relatively new concepts she just covered in class. As always, she understands chemistry very quickly once it is thoroughly explained.
Had one more final review before the student's test on bonding. He had no trouble with the practice problems, and we feel he is ready for this exam. He showed a better understanding of the concepts behind certain bonds as well.
