Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We went through her math homework and answered questions she found confusing, and talked about division; we talked about vocab in context and reading different types of sentences, using the book she's reading for fun.

Simplifying polynomials and radicals in fractions and multiplying them together. Also reviewing factoring and FOIL. Then went through some functions and substituting in values into functions to determine the answer.

Today we started studying for the student's Science final, which is on Wednesday. I hope to have 2-3 sessions with her before the final, inclusive of today. The Science final covers the entire year, so I organized all her old Science tests and we started working through them. The first topics covered were cell biology and genetics. I am actually quite pleased with her performance today. I was very surprised by how well she remembered the information, even though it was covered so long ago. I think, if she were to retake those same tests today, she would actually get better scores than she did originally. We discussed all topics that came up that she had a bit of difficulty with, including Mendelian inheritance and stem cell differentiation. I tried to keep our discussions very current and relevant, playing on my experiences in bio-research, and I think she thrived off of that approach. By the end of our session today, we had covered about 30% of her old tests.

The student and I worked on a little bit of everything. She wrote an essay for practice on her own, and we went through a short and long writing section. There were some areas that she was unsure about but overall did well. The reading had a few questions, but probably just needs more practice. She did a great job on the math.

Today we worked on a writing assignment that I gave the student for homework. We were able to finish correcting it and completing a final draft together. She was really able to see how much better the final draft was compared to the original. I guided her to be able to understand and come up with solutions and corrections so that they feel like her own. She did great and we will continue to practice until she can come up corrections and editing without me!

During this session, the student and I worked on the ACT reading section. She worked through 2 sections, and did relatively well on both (scoring in the mid 20s). We then went through both of the sections and discussed any errors she had made, and talked about general strategies for the ACT reading. She finds the natural sciences passages the most challenging, so I suggested that she starts with those so that she can allot the time necessary for them. This strategy seemed to work well for her, and she scored better on the second natural sciences passage she worked on.

This is the first session that I had with the student. During this session we went over electrical circuits. We discussed ideas pertaining to resistors and voltage generators. We talked about series and parallel circuits and the difference between the two. We also discussed the units used for the measurement of physical quantities such as resistance, current, and power. In addition, we covered Ohm's law of electricity and how to use Ohm's formula. We then solved a set of problems on these various topics. The questions involved calculating equivalent resistances for resistors in series, in parallel, and in different combinations. They also involved figuring out how to configure different components within a circuit in order to achieve specific voltages or currents in order to run devices, and calculations of voltages and currents across components of a circuit. We will be meeting again in 2 days.

We covered the introduction to null and alternative hypothesis testing. Reviewed how to write each type of statement based on the information given. In addition, we reviewed significance testing. Practiced problems using hypothesis testing and defining the statement parameters. We also reviewed p-value and how it is used. Additional exercises were assigned to encourage familiarity of the subject matter. Next section will involve chapter review to prepare for make-up test.

Finished the last of chapter 10 and 11 material which she is being tested on this Saturday, covering hybrid orbitals and MO theory. Most of our time was spent figuring out how to fill out MO diagrams for various diatomic molecules and determining bond orders from sigma and pi MO and AO orbitals. We also reviewed how to calculate lattice energy and how to draw correct Lewis structures. She is going to memorize molecular structures and angles on her own and attend a review session, and I think she will be very ready for her exam.

During this session there was no new material to go over, so old material and homework given from the previous session was reviewed and discussed to make sure the student is retaining the information learned. Lastly, exponents were reviewed and some homework was assigned for this topic to be gone over next session.

This was our final session before the student takes the SAT this weekend. We were able to review all sessions. We reviewed math problems that she had done and we looked specifically at how to solve challenging geometry problems -- remember that straight lines and triangles' angle measures add up to 180 degrees, and that opposite angles bounded by two intersecting straight lines are equal, and go from there. On writing, we reviewed rule signifiers such as singular vs. plural. On critical reading, we spoke again about determining which questions to answer in which order. The place where she showed the most improvement was her essay; it was excellent.

Helped review and study for unit/chapter test-war of 1812. Reviewed graded pre-test. Prepped for upcoming test. Worked on developing an outline for a 5 paragraph essay.
