Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Took April 9 ACT: Eng 33, Math 24, Read 27, Sci 24, Comp 27. Today, we worked on ACT Math and SAT Math, also ACT Science overview.
Reviewed assigned problems and improved the student's understanding of the application of geometrical formulas. Assigned homework involving the memorization of geometrical formulas, special triangles, and other basic math concepts in addition to more math problems.
In this session, I directly addressed and explained specific areas the student needed help in by using illustrations and connecting various ideas. Time was well spent on deciphering the distinction between internal and external properties which correlated to the distinction between real and fake change. A great deal of time was also spent considering issues relating identity, existence, reference, and counting. This is difficult material and proved difficult really in any compact form. Moreover, her professor provided a great deal of related material which is in need of integration. This will be the primary goal of the next session in addition to covering any other topics she is concerned with.
The student and I went over an essay he will be revising. We reviewed his teacher's comments, and worked on trimming the first half of the essay and expanding the second half. The student began revising two paragraphs and took notes for further revision.
We went through the problems of the Multiple Choice Calculator portion of the AP Calculus BC exam as practice. We also covered the Shell Method for finding the volume of a surface of revolution.
This session was mostly a comprehensive review of the course so far (in preparation for a midterm next week). The student and I talked through two weeks of lecture slides and worked a few example problems. I suggested that he work through a problem involving expected value, standard deviation, and risk as these concepts seem central to the coursework.
The student and I worked through two practice science portions. During the first test, he took as much time as he needed answering all the questions. He scored a 28, which is a significant increase from his previous test he took at school. But when he took the next test under the time constraints, he scored a 22. This reveals that the student has the aptitude necessary to do well on the test and that we will need to focus our efforts on pacing.
The student didn't have any homework for us to complete during this evening's session. So we created a Pascal Triangle and explored its numerous properties. He was intrigued at how many different patterns emerged from the triangle.
Today was the first session with the student, and, after we briefly went over what he and his previous tutor had been covering, he did a 20-minute diagnostic of sample sentence completion and passage reading questions. We first went through the sentence completion questions, and overall he did a great job. He answered all the questions of this type correctly through sound logical reasoning though he was unfamiliar with the vocabulary at times. In those instances, we defined the words he did not know and used them in context. We also covered general test-taking approaches to sentence completion questions and then proceeded to dissecting the reading passage. We evaluated the author's tone, the use of language, and summarized paragraphs as we went along. Overall, the student seems to have a solid grasp over the concepts, and, with regard to the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT, I intend to focus on building his vocabulary and more reading comprehension practice.
I brought the student a lot of stoichiometry worksheets as well as a guide for doing stoichiometry problems. I explained to her the point of stoichiometry is to get from one known quantity of one substance to a quantity of a different substance, and I did one example problem for her. She was able to complete the first worksheet with a lot of guidance from me. The second and third she found much easier as she began to understand the method. I left her with an additional work sheet which we will go over next week.
Reviewed concepts while working through part of a multiple choice practice test. From there, had the student work through a long form question, allowing him to ask questions when he got stuck. After that, recommended he take the rest of the questions in the section and see how he does and use that, plus a recent practice test he took in class to help him make a final decision on whether to take the exam.
Today we covered the dynastic and international conflicts of the 18th century, the Industrial Revolution, the later incarnations of the Enlightenment, the American and French Revolutions, and the beginning of Romanticism. I assigned the student some homework, research on the Napoleonic period and the conservative backlash of 1815, as well as the rise of nationalism and liberalism.
