Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Agenda: -Introductions and summary of what the client feels needs to be covered -Evaulation of writing skills -Evaulation of ISEE skills -Brief lesson on writing skills (on paper from school) -Scheduling of future sessions
1. Reviewed a worksheet on punctuation that I had supplied to the student for practice. 2. Showed the student how to revise an essay that he was assigned in his class and reviewed some of the basic steps of essay organization 3. Reviewed a class worksheet on Boyle's law and concluded with a brief review of significant figures in Chemistry calculations. Overall, he seemed to grasp the topics covered and was eager to cultivate the knowledge that he gained through the tutoring session.
We went through the questions the student missed in Quantitative Reasoning, identifying his strengths in series questions and his weakness in word equation questions. To improve, we practiced different types of mental math problems, both verbally and written. He has been assigned work in the book and some problems I have given him, to further improve these mental math techniques. Basically, he spends a lot of time on the basic math in the problem, which slows him down when solving the overall concept. Having introduced and reviewed different mental math short-cut techniques, he's improving his time, and I think will continue to improve.
The main topic of our session was linear programming and sketching the plane defined by the x-y-z coordinate system. The student did very well on the assigned problems.
We reviewed the homework together. Then, did intervals of the math practice test, and did some problems from chapter tests of an algebra book.
The student and I have covered the assessment test and graded exams within our weekly session. The first hour session we focused on correcting answered questions on his graded exam and questionable problems. For our second hour session we spent time focusing on assessment testing techniques and practicing timed tests. He does very well with using techniques such as the process of elimination and rechecking answers and this can better prepare him for the assessment test. When solving multiple choice or free response problems, he must remember to write his answers all the way out.
This was my first session with the student. In person, I went over the details of what the student is studying in his class these days (A Tale of Two Cities). I helped the student to come up with a Tone Statement for Chapter 5 of the book. After that, I gave him two independent exercises to help develop his writing skills in general. The first was a Creative Writing exercise called Rendering an Incident in which he utilized his descriptive writing skills. The second was a Basic Composition exercise in which I gave him a topic, then asked him to create an outline first, organize his thoughts into a topic sentence and supporting statements, and then write a cohesive paragraph. The student has good writing skills.
In this session we reviewed an excel assignment that used a t test for a matched pairs experiment. We also reviewed her past test. I told the client I would make up some practice tests as some of the problem also stems from test taking problems rather than lack of understanding of concepts. Only concern is the pressure put on the next test and final but I have greater understanding of the problems and testing style and student should be able to do well on upcoming tests. No extra practice assigned.
I showed him my system for marking up a novel while reading it to make the process of evidence selection a breeze afterwards. Finally, we read three different classic short stories -- "A&P," "Girl," and "The House on Mange Street", in order to push his ability to discuss and recall information about the stories after the fact.
The student and I worked on the Math section of the SAT. We have been working on time management techniques to help him complete as many questions in the given time as possible. We have also been reviewing algebra problems and the use of variables. He is working very hard and is committed to doing additional practice between sessions.
The student is taking the AP exam this coming week and wanted to talk about a couple of areas. The first involved hints and test-taking strategies for writing the free response essays on the exam. I looked over a previous exam of his and helped him think about the ways to improve and maximize his points on the exam. He also wanted an explanation of exactly what test readers are looking for when they examine "analysis" on essays. I helped him understand these areas and additional ones related to the structure and scoring of the exam. In terms of content, he wanted a review of the feudal system in Medieval Europe, so we discussed that area in global context for a while as well.
We did the sight words and added new words. We read a book she checked out from the library called "Fly Guy." She read it quickly and well. She did a sheet reading and writing s blends. She did some sentence writing and read some long a words and sentences.
