Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I spent our time doing mini MCATs to review all physical science concepts. We worked through 3 of them, which covered basic chemistry concepts, fluid questions, torque problems, frictional forces, and E&M.

Tonight I guided the student as she completed her Geography notes.  Then we worked on her Odyssey homework. She had vocab words and questions to answer on book 1.  We defined each word then read the chapter together, and I assisted her as she answered the chapter questions.  

In this session, the student and I worked through a practice Geometry worksheet. We discussed how to solve multi-step problems involving two equations with two unknowns. She also worked through many problems involving congruent angles and bisected lines. She seemed to understand the concepts and was able to solve the problems after we broke them down into smaller steps.

Reviewed writing Introductions homework from last session. Corrected and made suggestions for revisions. Reviewed grammar and punctuation. Read several passages.

Today the student and I focused mainly on math. She had struggled on a recent Friday flash, so we went over how to simplify algebraic expressions, since she will have an opportunity to make it up tomorrow in class. We did a number of practice problems and by the end, she did all of them perfectly. We then worked on her most recent math homework, which involved probability. We also organized her whole math binder, since staying organized is an important part of doing well in school. She is quite smart.

During this tutoring session, we reviewed the polynomials from last week. I also taught her how to factor by grouping, which is the next lesson of her workbook. We then went over the entire chapter of polynomials, including addition, subtraction, and multiplication of polynomials and solving for polynomial equations. She seemed confident in each section, and only made small errors (such as negative signs) in the practice problems.

The student and I covered ANOVA tables and how to use a spreadsheet to create them, as well as what they mean. The student's computer did not have the necessary software for some of the problems, so I helped him on my computer.

We reviewed material that the student had been tested on in the past, including absolute value functions, inequalities, and domain and range of a set of coordinates. While she will not be tested on this material on her final exam, it is a good base knowledge for future classes.

The student had read a practice reading test and done the practice writing. We went over that, first correcting spelling and punctuation, then focusing on making sure to answer the question completely and correctly. We rewrote it to improve it. We also read another reading passage, pre-reading the questions, marking the passage with notes to help answer the questions, and went over the questions. He will do the writing for the next lesson.

The student and I met today and got started on SAT prep. He took a course this past summer, and he has a good foundation of test prep. We are starting to work on math. I went over some strategies with him today, and we will continue on with some more targeted math work next week. We are working out the scheduling for next week sometime soon.

We went over problems involving lenses in physics, and polynomial long division in algebra 2. By the end of the session, the student demonstrated he understood the work by solving the problems correctly.

We went over centimeters and meters, as well as inches, feet, and yards. We practiced all different combinations, and she was very comfortable with this by the end of our session. I also introduced the coordinate grid, which she took to very easily. Within a few minutes, she was able to locate and graph points on the grid.
