Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Over the weekend, I set up an outline for the student's argumentative paper. He started to outline his arguments on that online before our session. Together we wrote a detailed outline of the paper. The student also asked for my help with citations, which he will send me via e-mail before our next session next Tuesday evening.
Section practice review; student-produced responses overview and sample questions; math section practice questions (multiple-choice + spr); assigned full Practice Test #3 (including essay) and daily timed sections for holiday break HW.
The student has a test on Reciprocal, Reflexive and Idiomatic Pronominal Verbs this Wednesday, so we began to review the grammar together. He also had a composition due the next day. The student wrote his essay, and I reviewed and corrected it with him. Finally, we worked on completing the rest of the packet on Chapter 7. Since the student's test is Wednesday, I suggested that we meet Tuesday to help him prepare for his test.
We went over the test the student just finished in World History. She is able to re-take part of the test, so we are focusing on what she needs to do for that part.
As usual, Thursdays are when we focus on responding to short answer questions set on informative passages. The usual techniques were employed and the students were fully engaged.
The student and I met today to discuss her new material in biology regarding osmosis and energy in cells. After writing down some vocabulary and connecting concepts she caught on quickly.
Today's packet focused on area, perimeter, and reading informational graphs and charts. The student is getting more comfortable with his multiplication facts and finding the area of basic squares and rectangles. He had a bit more difficulty with irregular rectangles which requires the scholar to break it down into smaller rectangles and then adding the sum for the area. He frequently rushes which causes him to miscount the length and width and that in turn results in the wrong area/perimeter. We amended this by making tick marks as he went and counting twice.
We went over the student's algebra worksheet on simplifying rational expressions. The major topics covered were simplifying through factoring, difference of squares, taking out -1, etc. We then reviewed the major objectives for her Biology test on Tuesday and made a study guide. She had increased understanding regarding factoring out (-1) for simplifying rational expressions and seemed to have a good grasp on biology topics.
Today was the student and my first session together. We went over her homework which covered the "futur simple," and talked a little bit about what they had previously learned in class. She struggled with some of the irregular verbs, but seemed to be getting the hang of it by the end of the session. Today's session was a little shorter because the student did not have as much to go over this week.
The student and I worked on his first draft of his research paper for his language class. We used the note cards and outline that he turned in to write the skeleton of the paper and then I helped him fill in some gaps and made suggestions about the logical progression of his paper to help him connect the body paragraphs of his thesis. Overall, he wrote a solid and convincing first draft. When it comes time to make corrections and finish his first draft, he should have little difficulty.
We covered the following during our session: Review of phonics worksheets given for homework last session. Read and discussed a news article--"Are Writing Skills Necessary?" Continued writing draft of the characterization essay of Alice Walker's short story "Everyday Use." Continued reading of "The Catcher in the Rye." Assigned phonics worksheets for homework.
We have went over his Geometry Final Review Worksheet. We explained in detail how to use Trigonometric identities to solve various problems. Our focus of the tutoring session was to understand how to setup problems and than taking step by step processes to solve the problems. The student was struggling with understanding trig functions like sine, cosine, and tangent when working with triangles, but I believe the student improved in this area as we went over several review sheet problems. I plan to leave them with an equation sheet that he can use to better understand his geometry problems.
