## Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I had our first session, which went very well-- I think she and I are going to be an excellent fit. We did a review of all the primary tenses, as well as some vocabulary and composition-- mostly feeling out where her strengths and weaknesses are.

Student 1 and I worked on pre-calculus and chemistry online, reviewing her notes, and reviewing homework problems. The students and I also discussed the ACT diagnostic and plans for tutoring. I e-mailed the parent to follow up, and scanned and submitted Student 1's diagnostic test as well.

We continued working with the GRE algebra book. We went over factoring, order of operations, and spent a long time on quadratic equations. The student is going to take a practice SAT this weekend, and we will move on to geometry on Monday.

We practiced addition and subtraction with negative numbers, and working with percentages. We reviewed some algebra and probability. The student is doing well.

Today we went over chapter 4.5 homework. It was mostly word problems having to do with creating exponential equations from word problem.

Student 1 practiced sentence completion problems in order to get a feel for the ISEE verbal section. Student 2 practiced the verbal and reading comp sections of a practice test.

We went over an ACT Science section that the student completed for homework. We went over the standard types of questions asked, how to best spend your time throughout the section and the basics of graph and table interpretation. Now that he has completed a full ACT test, I have a baseline score for him. I believe that with his continued effort, he will be able to greatly improve over the coming weeks!

The student was still working on evolution. We spent time focusing on the way that animals evolve due to their environment, covering, divergent and convergent evolution, as well as adaptive radiation. We also discussed how adaptation of species were determined by selection pressures. I tried to connect this discussion back to the adaptations we had discussed in our last session. She also needed a little clarification on her geometry homework in determining the apothem of regular polygons. I showed her how to divide the total angle of the circle (360) by the number of sides in order to divide the shape into right triangles.

We went over some materials for the state test and then we did a lot of reading. We started his new book and then did some reading in Lord of the Rings. It is important that we continue reading each session for this reason.

The student is studying hard! We covered Riemann approximations, definite integrals, and the fundamental theorem. I really emphasized the mean value theorem, laying it out for her visually. She did really well today. I want to focus on her ability to evaluate the statement of a problem and choose the correct course of action.

We worked on solving trigonometric equations. In some cases we needed to solve for the missing angle and in some cases we need to solve for the value of a function. We needed to use the Pythagorean identities, and functions of the sum of two angles, half angle formulas to solve some of the equations. We practiced solving for the radius of a circle when given the measure of a central angle in radians and the length of the intercepted arc. We also practice using logarithm formulas to find equivalent logarithmic expressions.

Finished reviewing for the student's American Government exam. Paid particular attention to amendments, principles of republicanism, and federalist/anti-federalist ideas. I urged her to continue to review the flash cards we had made once the session was over.
