Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Law of sines and law of cosines. Seemed to grasp it fairly quickly and effectively. The problem comes in that they aren't taught how to plug it into the formulas properly, so they don't know what side and what angle corresponds to whichever part of the formula.
The student and I discussed pros and cons of both the SAT and ACT. As of our meeting, she had not yet reviewed the ACT diagnostic, but planned to do so before our next meeting. We continue to focus on math, particularly algebra and functions. She is extremely confident, which is fantastic. At the moment, I believe she is planning to take the ACT instead of continuing with the SAT.
We looked at multiplying decimals, which was a first for the student. She caught on very quickly and liked the "shortcuts" we learned. We then looked at rules for semicolons and colons, and practiced identifying which situations call for each type of punctuation.
I had a fantastic first session with the student! We focused on the ELA portion of the test, since that is coming up in about two weeks, and the math portion will be at the end of April. We read a non-fiction passage and a fiction passage together, and we worked on some multiple choice questions and an open-ended question. We talked about the passages as we read through them, and the student is clearly a strong reader and has great ideas. Her ideas are often too general or too vague, though, so we worked on making more specific statements in her writing. Her test taking skills are excellent, and she is quite adept at looking back into the passages to find evidence to support her answer choices. I left her a long open-ended question to work on for homework. Overall, the session went really well, and I am going to enjoy working with the student!
We did a general review of difficult logarithmic expressions because the student had an exam scheduled the next day. We reviewed the different rules of logarithm (exponents, multiplication/division, transforming logarithms, graphing logarithms), applying the sum of squares in logarithmic expressions. We briefly reviewed growth formula but ran out time. The student was able to solve very difficult problems quickly, he's improved significantly since we first started reviewing logarithms. I think he was well-prepared for his exam the next day.
We covered study skills, primarily. 1. Set an objective for studying, like "I will study intensively for 1 hour on Tuesday", then go do other things with a clear conscience. 2. Study each set of notes within 24 hours of lecture. 3. When studying notes, don't just read through them: be sure you can cover the slide and re-write (and explain!!) the material 4. Quickly review the notes a day or two before an exam.
We read one of the student's longer books (level H), she did her math homework, and played a "Mad Libs" game I'd created (for her to practice writing and spelling). We also read a book and answered questions. Her greatest challenge seems to be overcoming her own hesitations about her reading level (saying things like "I can't do that" or "it's too hard") because once we went through things slowly, she was great at thinking of answers to her homework and processing what she had read (comprehension). We will continue to work on both fluency and comprehension.
The student and I worked on geometric optics problems involving ray diagrams, and spent a lot of time figuring out together how they work. By the end of the session, the student had made progress with understanding this particularly abstract kind of problem, and suggested that we study atomic and nuclear physics in our next session.
We discussed partial fraction decomposition and trigonometric substitution. The student has really taken a shine to PFD and had only slight difficulties with some of the more challenging aspects of it. She has some confidence that she can perform well in a test setting. Trig substitution however was challenging. We went over several examples and mixed in some regular substitution to make sure she could differentiate. She has dedication in the face of 'senioritis' and what she describes to be a desert of instruction.
Today, the student and I practiced evaluating line integrals using Green's Theorem. It took some demonstration to get him up to speed on the concept, but we got there.
We discussed the beginnings of a draft research proposal that the student is working on, addressing her questions and figuring out how to get past the places where she got stuck. I shared some techniques she can use to organize her thoughts and find the common themes in her literature review. We developed a plan for going forward.
The student and I kept working on kinetic and potential energy, conservation of energy, friction, and work and power. Overall he's doing well. We went over some of the more difficult problems, and I think he should do well on his upcoming final.
How can a Computer Science tutor from Varsity Tutors help you master Computer Science?
Varsity Tutors offers AP Computer Science tutoring in Tucson, AZ. We’ll help you master your course material and prepare for the AP test through one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your own home or another location of your choice. We have brilliant computer science majors from top universities available to help you with your Advanced Placement Computer Science course.
Whether you seek to jump-start your career in Computer Science, or just take your personal interest in programming to a higher level, taking an AP Computer Science is a wise investment of your time. Not only will it save you time and money in college by allowing you to place into higher-level courses, the knowledge you gain of Java will give you the skills and experience you need to begin your own projects, allowing you to develop and test your skills even when you’re not taking classes. However, AP Computer Science is meant to be a challenging, college-level course, and, as with any course involving new terms and concepts, new skills, and a meticulous methodology, your mastery of the material can be delayed if you make errors early on or misunderstand key concepts or procedures. In situations like these, it’s very helpful to have a guide who understands the material, someone who can answer your questions as they come up, walk you through new concepts, terms, and methodologies, and teach you, step by step, how to solve the type of problems you’ll encounter in your course and on the AP exam.
Whether you’re looking for help with specific problems, with the material in general, or with the AP exam itself, an experienced AP Computer Science tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to help you. Your AP Computer Science tutor will talk to you about your concerns, identify your learning goals, assess your proficiency with the material, and quickly root out any areas of confusion, particularly those relating to key concepts needed for success on the AP exam. Your tutor will then create a customized program designed to get you up-to-speed, as well as prepare you for the AP Computer Science exam. With the advice and encouragement of an AP Computer Science tutor, you’ll see your confidence grow, your grades improve, and your understanding of the material deepen.
