Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student brought a review sheet that we went over.  The material was a continuation of applications of the quadratic equation/formula. The student is showing some great progress by showing an improvement in understanding the material since our first session. He has a test this Friday, so he will let me know how he does.

Today we reviewed the English and science sections that the student agreed to complete independently. We also discussed reading strategies, and I instructed her to try a reading section this week and think about what strategies work best for her. Her scores have already improved, and I am pleased with her progress thus far. I emphasized the importance of practice in order to succeed on the ACT.

We went over and worked through his math homework. He is very bright and can do multiplication and addition in his head. He needs to write it down only to make sure he doesn't lose track. He is very eager to learn. He has two tests tomorrow, so we tried to review math problems and chemistry topics so he felt prepared.

Did some early precalculus including function transformations, and composing in function with another.

I met with the student for 1.5 hours. We worked on his review for his final exam, and continued to work on factoring polynomials. He is showing improvement with this.

The student and I finished reviewing the ACT rhetoric and style skills that are necessary for the English section of the exam. We focused on a writer's "strategies" (i.e. how one develops a topic different ways) and we talked about concision and clarity with regard to redundancy, wordiness and cliche. I assessed his absorption of the material with several sample passages.

We started going over the newest information in her class. We talked about the six trigonometric functions and their relation to a right triangle. We then learned how to use them in order to fill out various missing information of a given right triangle.

During this session, the student completed the math section that she had started last time. Math is the most challenging section for her, so I have been focusing on helping her use process of elimination and making educated guesses to maximize the number of questions she can get correct.

The student and I completed the review questions at the end of chapter three of his biology text in preparation for his upcoming test. We discussed the topics of nitrogen/carbon fixation, the water cycle, the ecosystem, and food webs.

It seems like the student is really studying and trying on her own, which I appreciate. She scored perfectly on the vocabulary quiz that I made for her. We finished going over the math section that we started yesterday. She takes notes on the concepts she doesn't know and is very cooperative with all of my questions and attempts to reinforce the different formulas and theorems. We looked at her essay from the SAT in January, and talked about shifting from only using personal examples to incorporating some from literature, history, etc. We finished with a critical reading section. She did best on the long passages, but missed quite a few sentence completion questions.

Today, I gave back her essay that I had graded. There was a lot of improvement. Then we went over the math section that she did for homework and worked through a second one. We then did a vocab and writing section. The student takes the SAT on Saturday. Overall, the student has worked very hard and shown a lot of improvement between now and the time I first started working with her. I think she will do well on the SAT on Saturday.

We reviewed for the student's Fall Final Exam re-take and prepared for her last quiz in probability. Based on the distribution of 4 post-exams (~20%) and Final Exam (15%), the student averaged an 88% on the re-take material from the fall Geometry course. If averaged with her previous marks, she will receive a C, which is a passing grade. Otherwise, she will get a B if her grade depends solely on the retake. Overall, the first objective of getting her to pass her course was achieved. I think moving forward, if she can consistently review material and attempt/complete homework assignment before our sessions, the effect of tutoring will have a greater impact on her overall grades. Regularly scheduled tutoring sessions, will then serve to reinforce content, as opposed to teaching the material. She is very engaged and attentive. With the right plan, I believe she is very capable of getting B's off the bat without retakes.
