Session Summaries by Social Studies Tutors

Des Plaines, IL Social Studies tutoring
We reviewed the study guide for chapter 10. We were able to complete key issue 1 and 2 and a large portion of 3. The student was engaging when I asked questions. This is a chapter with a lot of vocab so that should be a focus of hers when studying, but the concepts are simple.

Today, we covered the chapter on services. The student picks up on concepts quickly but needs guidance to help him think of examples on his own. This will be a skill we will continue to practice because it is crucial as he approaches his AP exam. We also discussed his preparation for the upcoming AP exam and his experience with FRQs to-date.

The student and I started by reviewing his work so far on his projects as well as the reviewing his use of reading techniques. After that, we focused on an assignment for AP Human Geography that had some very complicated topics. I helped him write his first paragraph, focusing on the quality and organization of the writing. After that, we moved on to the third paragraph, which features some advanced terminology of race. I explained it thoroughly until he had a good handle of the concept.

Tonight, the student and I spent the first 40 minutes working practice problems about the city models. We spent the last third of the session talking about the AP exam itself and how to best study for it, as it's now approximately a month away.

Today we covered topics that were introduced earlier in the course and connected them into the broader context of geography. These topics will be on the student's cumulative test on Wednesday so I wanted to be sure she had not forgotten them and could see how concepts she has learned more recently were derived from prior concepts. Some ideas she knew very well and could apply easily, and others she needed a bit of a refresher on. Overall she did very well and had a great attitude as always! Since she has a test next week, we will be meeting on Saturday and Sunday morning to study.

The student has a test next Thursday, so we reviewed everything from this unit today. We focused on the differences between the urban development models (sector, concentric zone, multiple nuclei), as well as the differences between urban development patterns for different regions of the world. She remembered a surprising amount of information from last week, and I think this unit has been a lot easier for her to understand than previous units. We went over her notes from class, and I've been getting the impression that she is paying more attention in class and taking better notes during this unit as well. I'll be sending her an updated version of the review PowerPoint I made for her.
