Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Worked on Chapter R of her College Algebra course, particularly:
- Number line and interval notation;
- Order of operations;
- Exponent rules such as multiplication, division, and raising to a power;
- Scientific notation; and
- Polynomials, including FOILing and factoring.
We did some preliminary work on his research paper on Dante's Purgatorio. Mostly, he needed study skills help at this point: learning to ask questions, use a dictionary, take notes, and think about themes. We also talked about thesis statements.
Today we reviewed the results of the student's most recent math test. Her overall math grade is far higher than either the student or the parent thought it would be. Because of this we completed her math homework, I checked it, and then we shifted the focus onto science. She has a test next Thursday, so we worked through the review as well as made flash cards for key vocabulary. Our plan next Monday and Wednesday is to continue reviewing the text, review the flash cards, and take the practice test. I think in addition to knowing the information in the chapter we are working on her confidence. She has low confidence in math and science in general, which we are working to overcome. After the text next week we are going to review the information in the previous chapter in order to begin preparing for the midterm.
Session with the student. We went over a test review today for an exam she will have next week. The material covered: sine, cosine, tangent, csc, sec, cot, coterminal angles, reference angles, converting degrees to radians and radians to degrees, etc. I feel that she understands the material well and should do good on her test.
We worked our way through a practice assessment, keeping the focus and having answers that are 'short, sweet, and to the point'. We also went over some study tips and went through a quick overview of the chapter for her upcoming test.
First session with the student. Talked about basic principles for writing a paper with a consistent through-line: good topic sentences, consistency of scholarly tone, and a conclusion that sums up the point of the paper. Good session.
The student is a Junior this year and is set to take the SAT in October. He feels very confident on the English and Reading sections so he just wants help in math. Today we completed 1 and a half sections and I left the rest of the sections for him to complete on his own over the course of the week.
Today we tackled the writing section; the student felt moderately good about this section, but in review there were a number of errors and dubious decisions. We went through the diagnostic section and answered each question, noting key words and concepts to look out for. At the end of the lesson, the student completed one of the practice drills. She answered these questions quickly and much more confidently than before. Next weekend we will continue to work on the drills in the writing section, then move on to reading. For homework, she should review the key math concepts identified in our session yesterday.
The student and I began to talk about exponential functions. We talked about the set-up for the function and where each piece goes in the function. We worked through numerous word problems where we had to use the information to set-up the function, and then use that function to answer more questions. I tried to explain that "x" was usually an amount of time or the independent variable.
Today we started preterite tense and verb conjugations, and the student is quickly memorizing the new verb endings. So during the session, as we went over homework and other texts, we put extra emphasis on vocabulary and some of the more simple usage issues she hasn't been taught or exposed to, having skipped Spanish 1. Lydia's doing excellent work in the class, and the vocab will come with some basic memorization and more exposure.
During our last tutoring session this semester, I helped the student prep for her final exam in first semester Spanish 3. We spent the majority of the session going over concepts that still remained unclear for her, focusing on verb conjugations and being able to identify tense from conjugation and vice-versa. We also reviewed key phrases included in her cultural and lecture vocabulary over the course of the semester. She seemed comfortable with her skill level going into the test and decided to focus more on the material she was less confident in as her main study guide.
