Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The student and I finished his review guide for his math final tomorrow. We also worked on making a notecard for him to use during the exam. The student showed good grasp of the material during the completion of the review guide and seems well prepared for the test.
Worked with the student on 3 college prep essays. For essay one, I reviewed and critiqued it. For essay two, I reviewed what she already had an revamped the outline according to the essay prompt. For essay 3, we developed and outline based on the prompt. I discussed the overall essay strategy and particular attributes that the student should highlight to make her essays stand out. We set a tentative date to meet again for essay editing and revising.
During today's session we worked on Spanish and geometry. In Spanish we covered: the verb ser and the corresponding subject pronouns. We also covered the vocabulary for the first section of the book. In geometry we covered: solving for a variable and all the proof necessary.
The student briefly did some work in geometry. She was fine with the material so we moved on to algebra. For the most part she understood and did well working with polynomials. Since the questions on exponents were newer she had more trouble but after some explaining she could solve the problems.
Today the student and I worked on short response for the first hour of our session. We practiced with the acronym RACE (restate the question, answer the question, cite evidence, explain evidence). He does very well answering the short response questions aloud but struggles/gets stuck on wording. We are working on his getting past finding the perfect word and more on formatting a complete and full answer. We next worked on scaffolding for an extended response for the next hour and making sure we address the full question. He did very well with creating an outline and just needs to make sure he picks out the correct evidence for his argument. The last 30 minutes we did multiple choice on two different informational texts. He received 5/7 on the first and 7/7 on the second text. He does best when he double checks his answer by rereading the text.
We discussed a chapter on emotion. We spent a lot of the time discussing the different neurological pathways for emotion and arousal, comparing what would look different within the James-Lange theory and the Cannon-Bard theory. We also discussed how emotions differed from moods and drives. I encouraged him to discuss this information with his parents in his own words to increase his comfort in discussing this when he takes the AP test.
The student and I discussed acid/base chemistry in today's session. This involved learning about acid and base nomenclature as well as the terms "conjugate acids and bases." We also reviewed how to set up acid and base neutralization reactions, and how to predict the products with this reaction. She had not learned this material yet, but quickly picked up the concepts. Through testing her, I determined she had a competent grip on the material and will be ahead of the curve when it comes time to learn about it in class. The next session will be prior to her test in chemistry, so we will be reviewing all concepts that will be tested.
We covered the use of verbs with the preposition 'to', personal object pronouns, the formation of sentences with the new structures, and homework on these items. We also read passages based on the new work. I asked the student to bring old tests to each session. He has to study a list of verbs I gave him based on the first three units.
Studied for the student's upcoming quiz on statistical probabilities. The student was a little behind when we started, but he caught on to the concepts quickly and seemed to understand the material and how to use the probability formulas.
Today we discussed ar, er, ir verbs with songs and exercises to assist the student with a better understanding on how to conjugated them in the present. As well discussed family members and practiced writing sentences and filling in the blanks with the correct vocabulary words. In addition, briefly touched upon possessive adjectives. She is very eager to learn the language and very dedicated, she grasps the new material very rapidly.
The student and I reviewed vocabulary and grammar to prepare for the unit test on Friday. We did sentence completions, conjugation practice, and comprehension activities. He was asked to review verb meanings and conjugations for the next lesson.
We went over the student's classwork involving environmental science. We went over recycling, energy use reduction, and pollutants, and then briefly went over the student's upcoming research project. We also went over the next chapter in the GED workbook involving converting between various units of measurement, such as liters, gallons, tsp, miles, feet, and grams. I also assigned the student the previous chapter's chapter review problems as homework.
