Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student and I completed her final exam review packet. By the time we were finished she understood the material; I stressed that she needs to continue studying on her own to solidify it in her mind before her test. If she does that, I am confident she will do well.
We worked through many problems using a basic dosage formula. We worked on writing out the full formula to ensure accuracy in writing correct ratios, dividing the correct numbers, and including all pertinent information. She's improving in her comprehension of various aspects and seeing the relationships between numbers, and is able to do more of the math in her head.
We spent a little over half of the session working on some more translation of Cicero, whose De Amicitia they are studying in class right now. After working through the meaning and grammatical issues of the passage, we moved on to some grammar topics. I brought in a handout I made to introduce a number of the uses of the ablative case, and we covered the meaning of these different uses as well as an example of each from real Latin. Then, I had the student translate some additional passages and identify which of the ablative meanings just covered was found in each sentence. Treating this material systematically will help refresh some material she has covered over a number of years, as well as giving her a new quick reference sheet to refresh her memory in future. She also expressed the desire to go over the formation of infinitives again, so we spent the last several minutes of our session working on that.
The student reviewed the most important topics covered in the last session so we moved on to learning the first few forms of the verb "to want."
The student and I worked on multiple-step word problems and complex algebra from an electronic practice test. We also put together a few flashcards for the mathematics concepts we encountered today.
The student wanted to get in another session before the test, so we met today to go over a few final things. We spent most of the session reviewing Math concepts, as this section still gives her some anxiety. She knows that she has not covered many of the concepts in her Math classes at school and is worried about the more advanced problems on the Math test. I provided her with a list of commonly tested formulas and concepts to help ease her mind a little. After Math, we did a few practice English exercises together, and she did really well with these. Finally, we went over what to expect on test day and the importance of pacing and endurance for the extended time test.
We reviewed math concepts such as quadratic equations, slopes, coordinates, exponents, etc. The student was able to apply the general shortcuts to (x+y)^2, (x-y)^2, (x-y)(x+y) to algebraic problems. He could do the majority of the math problems with ease and only needs to practice the more difficult/involved problems. I will be sending him relevant practice and I recommended that he start to do at least one practice section from each topic since the test is less than a month away.
The student and I spent the first half of the session going over math questions, and the second half going over verbal ones. There is a lot he needs to learn/remember for the math questions, but we are getting there one question at a time. He needs to remember a good bit of geometry in particular. His brother joined us for the verbal questions. We went over some vocabulary, as well as some passage-based reading questions. For homework I told him to look up the 50 most common SAT words online and to make flashcards for any of the words he doesn't know, as well as take another practice exam.
Today's session went really well. The student managed to remember almost all of what we worked on previously and we did a lot of problems today. It was a good day. We worked graphing functions, simplifying functions and quadratics. He is still struggling with remembering what he previously learned but he is getting better. He was given a lot of practice problems to work on. No concerns from this session.
For this session we dove into the next chapter, which dealt with R-C Circuits. These problems are very similar to the ones we have previously seen, however they are slightly more difficult.
The student has a test on chapter 9 tomorrow, so we spent the majority of our time going over the review packet for the test. This covered the effect of shifting or stretching the data on the mean, median, standard deviation and range for a set of data or doing the same things to a standard graph. We then used the remainder of the time to review chapter 8 on polar and rectangular coordinate conversions and applications to vectors.
The student mentioned that he was struggling with the physics homework so we ended up doing some homework problems together. The homework mainly concentrated on waves. Specifically, we went through the Doppler Effect, displacement of a particle due to a wave passing by, and constructive/destructive interference of two waves.

While mastering Biology is essential for moving on to more advanced science courses, you may be finding it to be a challenging subject, especially if you’re trying to master it on your own. Fundamental concepts in biology can seem counter-intuitive to most students. And, while they might get the answers ‘right’ at the beginning through simple repetition, it’s difficult for them to progress in more advanced science courses unless they truly understand what these key concepts mean.
Whether you’re looking for help with specific Biology problems or struggling with the subject in general, an experienced Biology tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to teach you how to succeed. After talking with you about your concerns and learning goals, your tutor will quickly assess your proficiency with the material, identify your areas of confusion, and create a customized program designed to get you back on track.
