Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
First session. We reviewed the practice test he had completed over the weekend. Overall he did well with the content and time management. We found grammar, mechanics and synonyms to be his weaker areas. We discussed the problems and he was able to discuss his strategy for choosing a certain answer. He is very bright and seems to picks up the material quickly. We will also work on building vocabulary and reviewing spelling/ capitalization rules. Discussed strategies for each section and the overall exam.
H.W.- Review first 20 vocabulary words, make sentence or create funny saying to remember the definition.
I gave the student a diagnostic test for Math, Vocabulary, and Ability. He seems to be able to do the math, but he has a lot of trouble pacing himself during it. I am going to bring flashcards on Monday to do time drills. He did very well in the ability section. Vocabulary he did about average (13/20), so i am going to try to do some vocabulary concepts with him (word roots, commonly asked words, etc.). On Monday we will do a diagnostic for reading and language and go over the math section.
I began the session with the student by administering a diagnostic practice exam to identify areas of strength and areas that need improvement. Afterwards, we reviewed the errors that were made and discussed test taking strategies. Lastly, she was given several vocabulary words to read, define, and use in a sentence.
Worked on strategies for identified problem areas, including fractions, word problems, vocabulary, and grammar. Practiced test-taking and time management skills by completing timed math and grammar exercises.
Today's session was the last session with the student. During this session we reviewed the sections of the exam. We discussed strategies for vocabulary and language sections, including looking at word roots, prefixes, and suffixes. We completed a practice exam and discussed similarities and differences between the sections. The student is in an excellent position to take this exam and should do quite well.
This session, the student grasped the concepts of adding, multiplying and dividing fractions much better. She also reviewed area with much more efficiency, and recalled the perimeter and area of a circle. We then expanded this to include volume, and she also understood this concept. We even managed to tackle some standard work problems such as finding consecutive numbers, given their sum. She understood the idea of plugging in a number into an equation, and even understood plugging in entire equations into other equations. Overall, I am extremely proud of the amount of learning she did over the past two sessions. If nothing else, she is much more excited and willing to learn about Math.
