Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Reviewed geometry, fractions/probability, introduced algebraic equations. The student is quite good at doing calculations in her head, and will write it down when she can't. She hasn't been wrong so I think this is an asset for her. Grasps new material quickly, will test once in a while to check retention. HW: Math packet (due Mon), essay (due Weds). Vocab words: pomegranate, tragedy.
The student and I focused on grammar today, based on what she's learning in class. We went over appositives, identifying the subject and verb, and dialog. I had her write sentences of her own based on models, and then correct sentences accordingly.
The student and I continued our grammar review. We did multiple activities with Subject, Direct Object, and Indirect Object. He did well on the first worksheet. We reviewed the procedures to identify each. He gained confidence. He also completed another practice proofreading exercise. He is doing better with the proofreader's marks. He also made fewer mistakes than last time.
The student and I continued to discuss proofs by contradiction. We also had new material on building triangles with the compass. He is noticeably more comfortable with the visual problems.
Today the student and I focused on the math portion of his ACT diagnostic, specifically the first 40 questions. Since there is a lot of material to cover, this took up the entire session.
The student and I did a final review for his exam this weekend. We covered odds and ends that had come up on his recent practice exams, including: galvanic/electrolytic cells western/Southern/northern blots pH and amino acid charges magnetic fields/NMR/MRI
During this session, the student and I worked on the ACT Math section. She had not gotten a chance to work on the section during the week, so we spent the first part just having her go through and attempt the problems on her own first. Math is one of her strongest sections, so she did very well on it and only missed a few questions. The ones that she did miss were the more difficult ones toward the end of the section.
The student wanted to go over redox problems and get ahead in his redox chapter by getting a head start on electric cells. In doing so, we discussed oxidation states and how they can be used to determined the oxidized and reduced species, as well as oxidizing and reducing agents. We conceptually discussed the Galvanic cell, including everything that happens in the cell, and briefly discussed the electrolytic cell. We then worked on problem relating to potential and the Nernst equation. He was able to do these problems easily once he was reminded how to do them (from high school). We will likely need to do more work with the Galvanic cell to ensure that he is completely prepared for his exam next Friday.
The student and I worked through a geometry review for his final. We talked about similar triangles and similar polygons in addition to Pythagorean theorem. We also talked about the basics of acids and bases.
It was the first session, so we went over goals and expectations. To gauge his understanding of mathematical formulas, we reviewed sample questions on a variety of subjects (fractions, inequalities, triangles, circles, etc.) to gauge his strengths (basic geometry, factors, exponents) and weaknesses (fractions, negative numbers). In English, we went over strategies for sentence completion questions and he practiced on two pages of sample questions. One of his primary concerns was the essay, so we went over outlining strategy. He was left with an essay for homework.
We went through her review for her exam. It was about animal phyla. I sent her a slideshow file which covers them with picture and examples, so it may help her to understand them better. We covered the different characteristics of the members of this group. She is doing well.
I worked with the student on his homework. After completing homework, I gave practice problems and went over the answers. I also gave practice problems similar to what would have been on the test last week.
How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you master Computer Science?
Varsity Tutors offers AP Computer Science tutoring in Washington DC. We’ll help you master your course material and prepare for the AP test through one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your own home or another location of your choice. We have brilliant computer science majors from top universities available to help you with your Advanced Placement Computer Science course.
Whether you seek to jump-start your career in Computer Science, or just take your personal interest in programming to a higher level, taking an AP Computer Science is a wise investment of your time. Not only will it save you time and money in college by allowing you to place into higher-level courses, the knowledge you gain of Java will give you the skills and experience you need to begin your own projects, allowing you to develop and test your skills even when you’re not taking classes. However, AP Computer Science is meant to be a challenging, college-level course, and, as with any course involving new terms and concepts, new skills, and a meticulous methodology, your mastery of the material can be delayed if you make errors early on or misunderstand key concepts or procedures. In situations like these, it’s very helpful to have a guide who understands the material, someone who can answer your questions as they come up, walk you through new concepts, terms, and methodologies, and teach you, step by step, how to solve the type of problems you’ll encounter in your course and on the AP exam.
Whether you’re looking for help with specific problems, with the material in general, or with the AP exam itself, an experienced AP Computer Science tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to help you. Your AP Computer Science tutor will talk to you about your concerns, identify your learning goals, assess your proficiency with the material, and quickly root out any areas of confusion, particularly those relating to key concepts needed for success on the AP exam. Your tutor will then create a customized program designed to get you up-to-speed, as well as prepare you for the AP Computer Science exam. With the advice and encouragement of an AP Computer Science tutor, you’ll see your confidence grow, your grades improve, and your understanding of the material deepen.
