Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The students completed one math and one reading section during our session. We then reviewed those along with any others they had completed. We also did a little brainstorming session for the essay writing. Overall, they have all shown a lot of improvement since the first practice exam they took a month ago. They all have the potential to do well, and I wish them the best of luck.
We covered nomenclature, the basics of acyl substitution, different factors affecting acid strength. She had a difficult time initially with the different words used, though she is understanding that material better. The student needs to practice nomenclature as well, though, she has a good understanding of the concepts now. We plan on covering nitrile reactions and HNMR on Friday.
Reviewed additional practice she had done at home, completed sentence completion quiz I had prepared, talked about sentence completion techniques, answered general questions about test-day and how to prepare in the upcoming week before her exam.
Student 1--completed a practice test. Student 2--almost finished going over the mock test she took last week. Continuing to learn vocabulary.
I'm excited to have a student as diligent as the student and who has enough time to really study. He's very intelligent and tends to take the test methodically.
This was mine and the student's first session, so I was mostly focused on establishing a baseline and gauging where she was at. We went through a math and a reading section, and she did well on both!
For our second session, the student and I worked on the Reading Comprehension test. We talked about the two types of tasks that the test requires, and explored some strategies for each one. For the questions based on short passages, we discussed in particular how to distinguish the main idea of a passage from other related or supporting ideas that it contains. For questions dealing with the relationships between sentences, we talked about the sometimes subtle differences, between different types of logical relationships, that one sentence can have to another. He continues to be an engaged and dedicated student who asks excellent proactive questions, and applies himself to picking up the material that we cover, which in many cases, he is able to do quite quickly.
Topics Covered today included exam prep, related rates, power series, and analyzing functions. We completed most of his review during our session.
The student and I worked through both Algebra II and Chemistry. We looked over a quiz that she took for Chem and the only real problem was she had a shift from pH to pOH. Once we talked about how that works, she understood everything and can easily get an A on her next test if its comparable. Algebra II was a lesson over word problems based on related rates. We talked about how to set up equations as well as solving them using substitution.
The student and I read two pages of text about recycling. He answered two pages of comprehension and vocabulary questions about the text. Next, we did a practice spelling word test. Finally, he and I worked on a multiplication practice page. He did a great job!
The student is showing terrific progress and is now performing at the top level in MCAT Verbal Reasoning. She has worked hard to improve the skill sets we discussed during our last session, and has a great and winning attitude about her studies.
We finished the last chapter in the book that we have been working through. We followed the method that we have been using - discussing the ID terms at the beginning to the chapter, working our way through the chapter, and then practicing essays and multiple choice at the end. We then went over the multiple choice practice test I had sent him last week and addressed any specific questions.
