Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
This was my first meeting with the student. The meeting went well. She has a strong grasp of Calculus and can use supplemental support. Taking a summer course is very difficult, because it goes very quickly. We plan on meeting once a week (Thursdays on non-test weeks and Wednesdays on test weeks).
We went through her math worksheet, discussed "polarity" with regards to certain types of molecular bonds, and finally watched a short simulation of sodium (Na) combining with chlorine (Cl). We discussed the atomic structure of the two elements and why the reaction would be such. We discussed why heat/fire would come out from the reaction of these two elements as they touched and made salt.
1. Discussed prioritization of school assignments with student, 2. Assisted him in compiling and defining terms for a geometry assignment, 3. Reviewed vertical, complementary and supplementary angles with him and assigned him a couple of problems for extended practice, 4. Reviewed some information and principles of the organization of the Periodic Table of Elements as a means of my helping him better manage the work associated with an earth science assignment. Finally, helped him develop a scheme for organizing the information presented on the Periodic Table. Overall, he seemed sure of his ability to successfully complete his school projects and assigned geometry problems.
Exponents have finally "clicked." We powered through homework one and parts of homework two today. I think it's fair to say we both ended the session pretty ecstatic about the way things went.
Today, we continued reviewing the various cellular pathways involved with cell growth, division, and death. He was able to review since our last session. We focused mainly on G-coupled receptors and enzyme-linked receptors. We discussed specific examples including but not limited to the RTK signaling pathway, WNT and frizzled pathways. He has another day of class and will be taking the test the upcoming Monday. He is ready!
The student wanted to meet because he felt he had enough to go over in chemistry. In this session, we worked on reaction kinetics. The student expressed slight confusion over the process of expressing some compound's rate of change in terms of another compound's. I gave him a simplified equation to help do this. We then did several problems that asked us to calculate the time needed for a given change in concentration of a particular compound. Finally, we talked a little bit about Le Chatelier's principle and the function of enzymes.
The student and I talked about sequences and series and started looking at the comparison and integral tests to determine whether or not a series converges. We went through practice problems about it and she seemed to get more confident as we went through the problems.
The student and I worked on a writing project for his English class. He had to write a short story based around a theme identified from the book they are reading in class. The student is very creative and seemed to really enjoy the assignment. Although he often struggles with reading, his writing is coherent and fluid. We spent time planning his story and I provided some pointers on sticking with the theme, as that was the focus of the assignment, but he needed very little prompting to come up with an interesting, detailed story. He did a really great job!
Infinite sums of series. We went over the students homework which requires you to know the material very well to properly finish it, and the student had a good idea of what to do for most problems. We went over power series, geometric series, alternating series, and combinations of those. We practiced using some test to see if the series is convergent or divergent.
We went over Lesson 102 in math. The student had to take a make-up test during his class period. I felt the best approach would be to teach the lesson he missed and complete it together in order to address any problems that he could have with material that was covered during the class period. We also completed physics homework related to Ohm's Law in regard to circuitry.
Today was our first session. We worked out of the student's math textbook. He is working on Chapter 2 about inequalities and graphing them in regards to work problems. We went over the problems in great detail. In addition, we begun the discussion about graphing absolute values.
During this session, I helped the student prepare for her math test that was the following day. Her teacher had given out a math packet with perimeter and area word problems, so I went through the problems with her, and she asked me any questions that she had prepared for me beforehand. I finished the session by reminding her of a few tips, namely: 1) always marking diagrams with information given in the directions, 2) going back to the given information if she feels "stuck", 3) always writing out perimeter/area formulas before plugging-in numbers, 4) never forgetting pi when multiplying/dividing circle perimeters/areas.

A time-honored high school tradition is students worrying about the SAT. The Scholastic Aptitude Test is the oldest and most famous college admission examination. Divided into three sections, Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing, the SAT is designed to measure a student’s ability to assess and analyze questions and problems. The SAT does not require a broad base of knowledge in a wide variety of subjects, only needing students to be familiar with advanced vocabulary, certain mathematical concepts, and grammatical structures. Many students find the test’s focus on reasoning and analysis quite difficult, as success on the SAT requires one to know the test and apply the appropriate test-taking strategies. Private SAT tutoring can be the perfect way to introduce you to customized testing strategies, giving you the best chance to excel on the exam.
