Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I covered the first section of his Sounds chapter (Chapter 12 in his textbook).  We also worked on his homework problems, which related to the speed of sound in various mediums and the equation distance = velocity x time. Progress was great- he seemed to understand the material both conceptually and mathematically.

The student and I began this session by reviewing the letter sounds introduced previously.  We then worked on the qu sound.  He had the opportunity to integrate this sound into reading and writing.  Keep up the great work!

We went over some final test materials before his test in two days. Specifically, I gave him some last minute pointers for the reading and science sections and advice for the test day.

The student and I worked through some of the essay he had to write about his orientation experience. We came up with an outline of the essay according to his teacher's specifications, and began drafting the essay for himself.

The student reviewed social studies in his test prep book. He should do well on the social studies section of the exam. He also learned decimal multiplication for tenths (124.5 x 34.5).

Graded some practice tests and found that the student has had improved his practice test scores. The student will continue to practice on reading comprehension as there is still room for improvement.

Today we worked on the student's review packet for his math final. The studying is going well so far.

The student and I dove right into the session since he had a lot of homework to make up. We started with his homework assignment on finding the least common multiple of rational and exponential expressions, and then we moved on to his homework on adding and subtracting rational expressions. For our next session, I will work with the student on finishing his remaining make-up assignments, and then, I will begin going back and reviewing previous material, especially factoring, so that he will be prepared for end-of-term exams. Overall, the student was a great student, and I am looking forward to working with him!

Today I helped the student review some nuclear physics. We went over the relation between wavelength and frequency as in a beam of light. We went over the Planck constant and the idea of quantized discrete energy levels. We went over stopping potential and the work function of a piece of metal involved in the photoelectric effect. We went over the energy lost between levels of electron shells and how to calculate maximum kinetic energy.

We continued where we left off last session by finishing some homework problems that she was having trouble with, mainly the Fisher's exact test with two independent samples. After finishing explaining problems on Fisher's exact test, we started to review the concept of counting since she said she wasn't comfortable with it. I gave her some practice problems on counting cards and explained how to approach those type of problems. She should be a lot more comfortable with counting after the session.

Student 1: learned and practiced the poem to get ready for finals; questions and responses in the past tense; some translation; use of prepositions. Student 2: a lot of exercises on verbs in the present tense.

He did a good job with his math, measuring angles with a protractor. She has really been impressing me with her willingness to go over spelling words lately. We did a few more today and she completed her math and language homework assignments without a problem.
