Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Discussed the student's expository essay using steps in a process.  Marked improvement in grammar and focus.  Still needs additional work in organization, but he has improved also in this area since June.  Worked on specifics of comma usage with few errors by the student.  

Life Science: more genetics, covering dominant & recessive alleles. Pre-Algebra: solving equations with multiplication & division; ran in to a "bump" working with multiplying & dividing with decimals. Will need more practice here.

Math review for angles in circles, calculating proportional area, volume of rectangular solids, cubes, cylinders, cones and spheres, units of measurement, using graphs (line, bar, pie) and tables, all with practice exercises; assigned further math review Q's as HW.

The student and I completed just over half of a lesson about applications of ellipses and hyperbolas today. If we can keep our pace up, he will have the course finished soon.

The student and I went over his grammar homework on infinitives. We then started on his math, two-step equations.

The student and I worked more on his essay that is due tonight. We worked on finishing up his body paragraphs.

We worked through advanced problems applying different differentiation techniques in conjunction with chain rule. I am satisfied now because the student understands the material.

The student and I worked over some geometry concepts. We talked about how similar triangles are used to set up proportions to figure side length as well as special right triangles, 45-45-90 specifically.

We spent most of the time going over geometry. Her class has just started theorems involving circles including inscribed and central angles and arcs. I clarified a few of the concepts that she was confused about and worked through some of the problems with her. I gave her a few problems to solve herself that involved using multiple concepts and she was able to solve them just fine. For physics we went over periodic motion and waves. Right now her class is mostly just going over concepts and definitions, not any math or real problems with waves yet.

Today the student and I finished up a unit on English grammar. The writing sections the student completed for me were about 20-30 points higher than her last official score, so we're making progress. We moved on to some reading strategies that will help train the student's eye for finding important information.

We began the session by introducing her to the multiplication facts for 8. She did a great job with the facts. She only needs to practice 8x8, 8x9, and 8x12. We practiced all of the math facts she has learned so far using two math games. She did a great job and got all of the facts correct, including the new ones she just learned. For the second half of the session we worked on fractions. She did a great job with fractions. In the future we will work on comparing fractions close in size for example, 9/10 <,>,= 8/9. I asked her to focus on practicing her 8s multiplication facts.

She expressed some concern with her understanding of fluids and thermodynamics, so we spent some time going over those concepts. Again, once we got the problems set up, she was able to solve them with no problems. By the end of the session she was able to set up many of the problems we looked at by herself, which is a big step toward doing well on tests. She is doing great and I expect that after some practice for the AP test she will do very well on it.
