Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
- We reviewed the student's test scores on PSAT, ACT - We reviewed the student's 3 summer assignments - We talked about general tutoring plans and reading strategies - We began the student's quote sheet for her Literature project.
The student and I went over the concept of qui versus que in French grammar. It took a few examples but she understood the concept relatively quickly. Next Thursday, she has a final in her French class so I really want to continue to focus on reviewing with her. She seems to have a strong understanding of grammatical rules so we've been working on reviewing older grammar rules that she may have forgotten. I want to ensure that she understands French and isn't just memorizing concepts and words quickly in time for the exams.
We studied the imperfect subjunctive in this session in preparation for a quiz on Thursday. First we reviewed irregular verbs in the preterite to prepare for conjugating the imperfect subjunctive. Then we did an exercise in which he had to choose between present and imperfect subjunctive.
We went over writing equations for hyperbolas and ellipses. We also started making her own reference sheet for that. She is now almost done with yesterday's homework.
Good session. The student had taken his first SAT test the previous weekend. He said he thought it went well. We spent more time on a new math book that had some extra challenging problems on it.
The student and I learned Spanish words for family members. We completed workbook exercises and then made a family tree of her family members. Afterward, we worked on her spelling words for the week.
The student and I worked on dimensional analysis problems. We also worked on identifying the formulas of ionic chemicals based on their names. He doesn't seem to have any trouble with this concept.
We went through genetics. He had an exam the next day so I went through it with him. I had some questions prepared so I had him complete those while I created different pedigrees for him to work on. I went through the 4 types of pedigrees with him and had him label the genotypes on each. We also went through some of the diseases he was told to memorize. We also were able to get in some geometry. I tested him by just complicating the problems and showing him little tricks to solve them. Also taught him The Rule of Sine. Extremely intelligent student and picks up information quickly.
Today we finished and/or made plans for the end of his democracy and the economy section and worked on his healthcare and democracy section. The student will incorporate all of the edits we have done thus far into his paper, create a transition for the education section, and finish his case study by our next meeting.
The student reported that she made huge improvements by getting a 63/100 on her chemistry exam last week bringing her grade up to a 67%. Her previous exam scores were in the 40's and 50's. We then worked on her algebra homework. We created a unit circle from scratch going over all the degrees, radians, and sine and cosine values. She said this helped her understanding of what they had gone over in class significantly. It is always wonderful to see that moment when a student "gets it". She said, "I've never been so excited to do my homework because I understand it now." Very excellent session!
The afternoon session was dedicated to learning the trends of the periodic table, as well as the properties of metals and nonmetals. The student was quick to understand these concepts, so we proceeded to determining empirical and molecular formulas. We then discussed limiting reagents, and how to determine them. She was able to solve for limiting reagents. We finished the session by reviewing chemical nomenclature and recording the important to know polyatomic anions. We also reviewed the basic chemical reaction outlines that need to be memorized for the test. The next session will begin by going over verbal practice problems, and seeing if we can find strategies in order to improve her score.
The student and I spent our time studying poetry. We talked about what poetry is and then read a number of Shel Silverstein poems. We talked about how to write a poem and what to include in a poem. Then we wrote a haiku together.

How does a Varsity Tutor in New York City, NY help you prepare for the PLAN? The PLAN, also known as the "pre-ACT", provides practice for the ACT. It is the ACT’s equivalent to the SAT’s PSAT exam and is administered during the sophomore year of high school. The PSAT, often known as the "pre-SAT", is similar in nature but also qualifies you for National Merit scholarships. Taking both the PLAN and PSAT is advisable - and often required by high schools - as it may help you determine whether you are likely to do better on the SAT or ACT. You can then use this information to determine which test to focus on when studying. The ACT organization views the PLAN as predictive of future performance on the ACT. Varsity Tutors advises focusing on scoring well on this exam as it is a good predictor of future performance and college entrance competitiveness.
