Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We completed some math homework involving word problems, tables, and graphs for the y=mx+b equation of a line. We discussed how to figure out the x and y axis, and how to calculate the slope by looking at either the table or the graph.

Biology: review concepts for final from final's worksheet (parts of cell, mitosis and meiosis, different biological macromolecules, diffusion/osmosis/passive and active transport)  Physics: Refraction, Snell's Law, Amount of Energy Required to heat up and cool down solutions (do sample problems from worksheet)

The student and I went over a practice exam. We went over the problems she got wrong. We went over some test strategies to help her eliminate wrong choices. The student's homework for this week is to take the vocabulary and reading portions of the next practice exam.

The student and I solved problems from her textbook for sections 9.1-9.3 concerning hypothesis testing and t-statistics. Later this week, we will work on her mini-tab assignment, other textbook problems, and review for the test.

In today's session the student and I worked on to complete the geometry final exam review packet. On the previous day we completed five out of ten pages of the review, so our goal was to finish the last five. We slowly but precisely completed the rest of the five pages until the student had a great understanding of it.

Discussed the concept of electric potential - voltage - as it applies to a current-carrying conductor. Explained and expanded on the concept of resistance - why materials in general have resistance to the flow of charge - and put it in context of the most accurately describable method in quantum mechanics. Though vastly similar to the more common and approximate idea of charges bouncing around inside a crystal, this approach also allows us a glimpse into the phenomenon of superconductors. Finally, we applied these concepts to calculating actual resistance values of a shape given a few dimensions and material properties.

After discussing typical strategies that the student uses in writing either essay or narrative, I gave her start-up strategies/plans that will help her to develop her ideas more thoroughly.    She is going to try using both strategies this semester, and I will follow-up and work with her again when her next trimester exams occur, if not before.

We reviewed DNA transcription and translation. We covered splicing, the different types of RNA, post-transcriptional and post-translational modifications, and the enzymes that govern transcription and translation.

In this session we revised the five finger patterns and combined them with the new rhythms that we have been practicing. We have been working more playing and following the music with a metronome. It was challenging for him, but we will continue practicing. The video project has been very exciting for him and we added one more video. We may add one video each class so that he can decide what frames to use.

The student completed his Chinese homework and practiced for his dictation test. He did a wonderful job focusing, staying on track, and writing his answers carefully so that he did not need to redo anything. His characters and sentences are really improving.

Potential final session on mortgage exam. Discussed possibility of how more hours would be spent (likely meeting every other week). Prepared a draft study schedule for completion of study by September 1st. Frank discussion of need to step up study pace significantly to meet that goal, covering about one study guide section per week. Finally, reviewed calculations of housing ratios, debt ratios. Discussed role of dimensional analysis and conversion factors in proper calculations.

Today we pretended we were going on vacation. The student wanted to go to the beach. We packed a bag of everything we'd need, and then we spent some time making passports with the student's name, birthday, address, and picture on it. We pretended to travel to the airport, and I acted as security. He shook my hand and introduced himself, gave me his passport, and told me his name, birthday, and address. We pretended to fly to our destination, and then searched for seashells together. After that, we made patterns out of what we found on our adventure.
