Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We went over the lesson the student learned in class about dividing polynomials. At first he was very confused, as if he did not learn it in class, so I re-taught him the material. After some practice, we made a step-by-step guide of the procedures. He still needs to practice so he does not forget it.

We went over the first part of the SAT math part. She seems to understand most of it. It was a very good time to review since it is material that she has not seen in quite some time.

During this lesson the student and I started with a few questions from the SAT math portion followed by a broad overview of all the topics that are covered on the Math section. Afterwards, we discussed the SAT writing portion in detail and the student made notes about what would be expected from his essay. Additionally, towards the end of the session I gave the student a short vocabulary quiz and afterwards we went over the definition of each word in detail.

We went over a variety of topics for the student's Calculus placement test:  Logarithms, Intercepts, Domains, Asymptotes, and Exponential Functions.  We also spent some of the time applying those concepts to the word problems from his study packet.  

Today, the student had homework on graphing, x and y intercepts, asymptotes, and sign graphs. We got through some tough problems.

The student brought practice finance problems that we worked through. I also taught him how to use a financial calculator to decrease the time it took to solve these problems.

We talked about rational functions, adding and subtracting functions, geometry, proofs, triangle geometry, similar or congruent triangles, applications of trigonometry, congruent angles and sides, various triangle laws, isosceles and equilateral triangles, right angles, interior and exterior angles, supplementary and complementary angles, and algebraic problems involving triangles and other derivative shapes. The student did extremely well with all of the material and was able to learn it and apply it very quickly and accurately. He is doing a MUCH better job of writing neatly and using lots of space, and he's making fewer mistakes!

The student and I spent the session reviewing the section her class covered this week, finding area of disks and washers by taking integrals. She had gotten very good at graphing functions and finding the area under/between functions. The new section required her to use the same tools to find 3D area. She was able to correctly solve all of her homework problems.

Specifically, we worked on the choice of using the subjunctive or indicative mood in a sentence when both are possible in the case of certainty or uncertainty of the existence of something. We also discussed the present perfect tense, past participles and their irregulars, as well as the progressive. I gave the pupil a list of vocabulary to study that I will quiz her on next week.

Covered: Wave characteristics/sound. I think she has a better understanding of it now, but we'll review it next week to be on the safe side. Waves problems in general are going pretty well. No concerns.

The student and I continued to prepare for his final exam coming up at the end of May. We looked over the review questions that I assigned from the chapter 13 review section in the book. The student was able to answer all of the questions accurately and intelligently. We then moved on to chapter 14 which covered acids and bases. We talked over the properties of both acids and bases and then answered the practice questions at the end of the section. I assigned him questions from the chapter 14 review, to keep us on track to have covered all of the chapters by the time his final exam comes up.

The student and I went over some of old work, because she is reviewing some things in class. We reviewed circumference and area of a circle, ratio division and simplification, and adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions. If she hasn't learned how to divide fractions, by the time I see her next, I will teach this to her. We also worked on some PEMDAS problems from a seventh grade textbook that I have. I showed her a new way to add and subtract integers. She needed reinforcement on this basic concept before she could advance in algebra. She enjoys algebra, and is really very good at it, so we practiced her new integer skills, in algebraic problems. I even showed her how to multiply out parentheses in algebraic problems. We spent the last part of her lesson organizing her mathematics binder, because she had to turn it in, for a major grade, the next day.

While mastering physics is essential for moving on to more advanced science courses, you may be finding it to be a challenging subject, especially if you’re trying to master it on your own. Fundamental concepts in physics can seem counter-intuitive to most students. And, while they might get the answers ‘right’ at the beginning through simple repetition, it’s difficult for them to progress in more advanced science courses unless they truly understand what these key concepts mean.

Whether you’re looking for help with specific physics problems or struggling with the subject in general, an experienced Physics tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to teach you how to succeed. After talking with you about your concerns and learning goals, your tutor will quickly assess your proficiency with the material, identify your areas of confusion, and create a customized program designed to get you back on track.
