Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Discussed basic PSAT strategies with client, especially fully and carefully reading the questions. Guided client through PSAT prep workbook. Focused specifically on mathematical functions, algebraic equations, and sentence correction.

Today, we worked on the Writing essay section.  We went over the general essay structure/came up with examples for one of the prompts, reviewed the errors that are tested on the Writing multiple choice section, and practiced several Improving Sentences and Identifying Sentence Errors passages.  Progress was good, overall.

Today, we focused again on speaking Chinese. We used the student's Chinese as a guideline for today's lesson. The student was able to read and understand all three lessons that we had gone over. I had the student translate sentences from English to Chinese verbally. The student did an excellent job at translating. There was one lesson where the student struggled to understand all the vocabularies, but he was still able to use context clues to understand the overall meaning of the lesson. We ended the lesson by quizzing the student's vocabularies using the index cards that he created.

The student is finishing up his unit 3 which includes his inequalities and sets of numbers. He is doing well in the class and understands the material.

We started on Advanced Linear today and the student was picking it up pretty quickly. He's definitely getting better at starting his hypotheticals with answers that have rules. He's going to practice a lot over the next week or so and then hopefully we'll move on.

We discussed the strategies, timing, and test itself and any questions that the student had about the test, strategies, or materials. The student was on her toes and seems to be ready to go for the test. Her overall composite score when super scored was a 31. I can see the student getting that or better this Saturday.

Today we reviewed and covered writing. The student and I worked on reviewing strategies to assist him with writing and also reviewed strategies on reading comprehension. I left some materials for him to review and work on. All went well and I have no concerns for this session. He is a very dedicated and intelligent student.

The student and I worked on sight words and wrote a new story. We covered BUMP, JUMP, and various color and number words. He's doing really well! His concentration has remained pretty stable.

We reviewed chapters 1-12 of the student's Biology text book for an upcoming mid-year assessment of material covered up to this point. We focused specifically on: - The chemistry of life - Elements and compounds - Isotopes - Organic vs Inorganic molecules - Types of Bonds - Diffusion & osmosis

He had a retake on his previous test and a quiz to take tomorrow so we did review over the material for both. We went over his old test which covered mitosis and meiosis as well as DNA and particularly focused on the questions he missed and made sure that he understood why he missed them. We then reviewed for his quiz which was covering mRNA, transcription and translation. He initially understood the concept behind the process but we went over the details to make sure he knew what was happening at each step. I am confident, based on how he was doing in the session, that he will do quite well on both the retake as well as the quiz. At the end of the session I went through a short little presentation I put together about why I find biology to be such a fascinating subject and gave him some ideas of what kinds of jobs you can have with a degree in biology.

The student and I went through her notes from the first chapter that will be on her AP Chem final (5/22). We reviewed solutions and solubility along with colligative properties. We solved some of the problems that the teacher used as examples in the notes and I left some of them for her to try on her own later. I suggested that she go online and complete the online review problems and complete the multiple choice problems in her AP test review book. We will meet again next week to review kinetics and equilibrium.

The student and I worked on fractions and estimating. She is quite good at estimating and is even using it to help her with other problems that don't ask for her to estimate. Fractions are still a bit difficult, but if she has a picture, she does well with adding them. Fractions manipulatives might be good for her.
