The student has an exam in geometry tomorrow, so we went over the review sheet given by his teacher. It is a summary of the info that we have gone over the past week - area/perimeter of various shapes, relating shapes via ratios, and some review of past concepts like complimentary/supplementary angles.
Overall, the student did very well. He seems to be getting the information really fast, and was able to answer several of the questions on his own. It appears that he will be ready for his test.

We talked generally about the Analytical Writing Test and began creating a template for the Issue Topic portion of the test. We also discussed a sample essay response that he had written to identify areas that we should focus on in the future. We made a plan for the next session in which we decided to begin organizing and responding to a list of the most common GRE Analytical Writing prompts.

Today I helped the student with his homework which covered special right triangles. All I had to do was suggest writing his steps down. The next homework assignment was over finding the area of various kinds of triangles. He needed no help with this either, other than me telling him to show his work. After that, I helped him with radical expressions. He had some trouble with these but after going over his assignment and some problems I created for him, he was more proficient with this subject. I spent the remainder of the session reviewing him on his previous homework to prepare him for his final next week. I feel that the student will do very well on his final. He had progressed greatly since our first session.

We talked about her homework and upcoming math test. After the homework was done we completed the 20 question practice test in the book with only one mistake. I think she is well prepared for the upcoming test.

Today we reviewed progress from our last meeting. The student completed all assigned reading that covered her material from the exam 1. We also reviewed the class syllabus to discuss the grading system to develop a strategy for upcoming study sessions. We then reviewed all the problems in her web assign class in preparation of an upcoming exam.

The student and I had a productive session today.  We mostly reviewed passage-based thermodynamics and biology problems. She has continued to stay relatively on-track and is set to wrap up stage I of our study plan by the end of this month. After that, she will start doing large sets of problems to cement her understanding of all four sciences.

The student is concerned that her French class may not be preparing her for the test, so today we focused on writing mechanics. We reviewed the useful patterns to know when figuring out which accents go where in words. In addition, we also learned transition words to help make writing flow better, such as "par example" (for example), "neanmoins" (nevertheless), "cependent" (however), and "malgre ca" (in spite of this). We also reviewed direct and indirect object pronouns and using infinitive verbs in the middle of sentences. The student applies herself well, quickly learning new material and making adjustments to incorporate it in the rest of the session.

Topics covered include simplifying polynomials, standard form, factoring, greatest common factors and writing sentences for Spanish. Progress achieved was a better understanding of how to factor and solve polynomials, and completing and understanding how to write sentences describing a house in Spanish.

This session with the student was spent going over two dimensional arrays. We covered how to search two-dimensional arrays, how to collect data about the rows and columns and how to instantiate/fill them. We worked on a few of the labs that his teacher provided that covers these topics as well.

The student had more math problems than usual for us to do. He had a few chemistry questions, which we answered with the book. Overall he's doing quite well, we just need to practice specific problems to make sure his concepts mastery translates to paper and doesn't get jumbled with small mistakes.

Conversational Mandarin, Reading and Writing exercise. The student is making a lot progress with speaking. He finished a short essay, which is very good.
