Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We covered Chapter 12 which is Kinetics. Discussed rate laws, and rate order. Derived all of the integrated rate laws. Practiced several problems. Conceptually covered rate, determining step and reaction coordinate diagrams.
We worked slowly through the first page and a half of the passage from Caesar's Civil War that will be on their final exam next week. Quite a few detours were required along the way to explain grammatical concepts and forms that the student didn't fully understand. We spent a while talking about the gerund/gerundive. We also had to do a quick review over how to form the subjunctive, and even what the subjunctive means.
Aided study for English final. Reviewed vocabulary study guides. Built thesis statements around vocabulary words - completed 3. Worked on specific thesis and body paragraphs for short essay portion of test. Completed first essay. Assigned two others and vocal review.
The student and I reviewed problems concerning collectability of unearned revenues. We opined that when a product has a 90 day warranty, half of it will be collectible because 50 per cent is the average and conservative rate of collectability. We also reviewed a problem about rebates and how after a company distributes to customers a certain amount, it still has to record as a liability the unpaid warranty amounts for a year end entry. The student is doing well as usual.
I reviewed the student's placement test part 4 extra practice - absolutely perfect. So we moved on to part 5: solving systems of linear equations. He demonstrated a solid understanding of how to solve systems with two equations and two unknowns, had a bit of a sticky point on three equations and three unknowns (possibly something he's never had to do before). On Monday, we'll start with a few simpler problems with three unknowns and build back to a more difficult problem.
The student and I reviewed Spanish, going over climate, time, grades. I had him read passages and answer questions, and we worked on pronunciation. The second student and I worked on her review packet for math over radical expressions and solving radical equations. After a thorough explanation she grasped it. We went over different types of problems so that she is prepared for her test.
We reviewed and outlined the section in her book on the digestive system. We reviewed her notes and went through each organ of the digestive system and it's functions, and important enzymes and location. At the end of the session I asked questions and the student was able to answer all the questions. We also discussed how to study for her test.
The student has a test coming up on Tuesday on theorems involving circles. We first focused on explaining the theorems and after that we did practice problems from a worksheet she had online. After approximately an hour, we focused on problems from the book.
The student and I began work on her public argument regarding high-stakes testing. She has decided to create a magazine article, and we worked to establish a tone and style appropriate for a persuasive pop culture piece. She did a great job transferring the information she had gathered while writing her research paper into a persuasive format. By the end of the session, we had finished the rough draft, and her homework was to format the magazine article with pictures and take her document through an edit. On Tuesday we will continue work on the public argument.
At this session, the student and I discussed Chapter 9 of The Hunger Games. We continued to discuss whether Katniss and Peeta are really friends or if Peeta's kindness is an act. The student observed that Katniss cares about Peeta (even though she says she doesn't) because she thinks about him. She inferred from the scene with the silent "Avox" character that the character "still has forgiveness and hope in her", based on the character's behavior. The student has enough of an understanding of the book at this point, that we can start moving more quickly through it; the close reading we have been doing has been helpful to establish her understanding, and now we will be able to discuss longer portions together.
The student has a test on Thursday. While working through the review, she noted that the tests have always been much more straightforward than the reviews, so we talked only briefly about in-depth word problems and focused on the more conceptual problems that she expects to see.
Worked with the student through the chapter 2 exam in preparation for the final. Covered topics in non-linear equations including completing the square, solving for general quadratics, vertices of parabolas and applying mathematical properties to word problems.

Although Latin is no longer a spoken language, knowledge of Latin is still highly recommended for those entering technical, medical, and academic fields--such as medicine and the law—where Latin serves as the basis of much specialized vocabulary. As your Latin tutor will explain, a familiarity with Latin before entering such fields is incredible advantage, as your knowledge of Latin roots will help you memorize new terms more quickly, freeing up time for other aspects of your studies. Additionally, for those entering academia, a solid understanding of Latin provides insight into many modern languages, enriches your vocabulary, and sharpens your writing skills.
While the benefits of studying Latin seem obvious, the language itself can seem fairly difficult. As noted, Latin—unlike languages such as French, German, and Spanish—is no longer a spoken language, so certain foreign language learning aides (such as immersion in the language by studying abroad) aren’t an option. Also, Latin’s conjugation and declension systems can be fairly intimidating to beginning students, particularly to native speakers of English. In both cases, an experienced Latin tutor from Varsity Tutors is an invaluable resource. Our tutors understand the special challenges of learning Latin and will guide you through the process—from vocabulary, to grammar, to composition—ensuring that any trouble areas are addressed quickly. With the help of a Varsity Tutors Latin tutor, you can enjoy the process of learning this invaluable language, as well as open up a world of exciting academic and professional possibilities.
