Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
I helped the student work through algebraic problems involving radicals. He worked on radical-multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. We concluded the session with some word problems, and the student felt confident with various problems involving radicals.
Continued to work on the strategies we discussed: highlight strong statements and key words previewed in the questions, above all, choose the correct answer by telling yourself "these other three answers are wrong because....(too broad/narrow, not in the same paragraph as question, too extreme, etc.) so the last one standing must be right" instead of "this is the right answer because..."
We covered math and science portions today. He is doing well but is still struggling when it comes to problems that involve a lot of wording. Our goals for next session is to help him discern what is important in longer problem stems and effectively skimming through passages.
We went over the critical reading hw I assigned. The student does very well with the passages. We also finished going over the practice exam she took. Then we worked on some math multiple choice.
The student is an incredibly smart young woman, who performed extremely well on her previous act. At this point she knows the material as well as can be expected, and time management and boosting her confidence are the best ways to ensure her success. Her writing is good for age--just shy of really good--and there are only minor points to address in her writing such as stronger active writing. Now she just needs to focus on knowing that she can do well.
Reviewed work from over the past week, and then discussed score analysis and how we would move forward based on this, which included going section by section through her weak spots, and breaking down the different kinds of problems she would encounter during each section. We also did some work on the essay.
A good portion of the session was spent both brainstorming and writing ideas for a piece of fiction the student will be required to write soon. She needed to generate a page-worth of ideas. She does have difficulty sitting for short periods of time and I need to find a more creative way to engage her to be able to sit and focus. We then worked on copying her spelling words for the week and finally reviewing her multiplication facts (with aid of a soccer ball). Thursday, I'm hoping we can start focusing on some of her reading assignments and zero-in a bit more on her specific math assignments and areas of focus.
Today we went over the last chapter, the urinary system. Also, we looked at the study guide provided by the teacher to figure out the main topics that will be included in the exam. The student will keep reviewing all the final chapters to get ready for her test. Also, I will put together a test for her next session so she can practice.
For the first half of the section we worked on algebra 2 homework involving exponential and logarithmic functions. The most difficult concept was converting logarithmic equations to exponential equations in order to simply them or solve for a missing variable. On the last half of the session, we worked on chemistry homework. She has a good grasp of molarity and determining the necessary amounts of solute and solutions in order for a solution with a specific molarity. We also briefly began problems on molality.
The student and I spent this first session assessing his proficiency with the language. I had him read an article from BBC Mundo in Spanish and orally answer questions about it. We also watched a clip from a Spanish telenovela and answered written questions about it. The student is already quite proficient in the language, but we identified many areas on which he'd like to improve. For future session we plan to delve into cultural and social subject matter.
The student and I began by discussing her homework. She answered all questions on the practice test correctly, but had a few questions that we addressed. She indicated that she felt much more confident in completing the passages and that she found the approach we had discussed for the conflicting viewpoint passage to be very helpful. The student and I then walked through specific passage types that she had identified as particularly challenging. She made a few errors, but answered nearly all of the questions correctly. We again discussed the importance of balancing her desire to fully understand the details of each passage with efficiency. For homework, she will complete the English section of an official practice test that I provided her with.
Learned personal pronouns, conjugation of the verb to be (ser o estar), conjugation of to have (tener). Basic vocabulary, El and La articles, un, unos, and unas. Left them homework: make up 20 sentences with what they have learned and practice conversations with each other.
How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you master Chemistry?
Chemistry can be a challenging subject at any level. It requires students to demonstrate not only mathematical knowledge, but also to utilize their imaginations in visualizing reactions and molecular interactions far too small to see with the naked eye. Additionally, the vocabulary that one must learn to discuss even its main concepts, much less understand them, can easily seem overwhelming: atoms, elements, molecules, reagents, solutes, and moles—the list goes on. Are you having a hard time in a chemistry course, or do you just want to brush up on your chemistry knowledge?
