Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I met and worked on integration. This being a whole new topic for him, there was some initial struggle with understanding it to be the "anti-derivative," so a lot of work was done to work backwards from derivatives after working a simple derivative."
"During today's session we worked on problems involving charges, electric fields, and the forces generated by those fields. The student gets the concepts pretty well, but she still has difficulty with vectors, especially when she has to find the resultant of two vectors. We will continue to work on this."
"Today, the student and I worked on completing the science section that we started last week. We continued to work carefully, so as to identify specific types of questions that can be predicted to show up on the ACT, in addition to various patterns that are present. She was very diligent, and after covering all of the Science section, we moved onto reading. I informed her of two techniques that may help her with the reading section and told her to try and practice them this week as she works on the homework assignments."
"Still working mostly on language section, though we also practiced some reading this time. Tutee is relatively confident in other sections and wants to focus on the language part (grammar, punctuation, etc.). Practiced more spelling, and then spent the majority of the time going through the language advice/prep section of the text book, talking about each rule and writing example sentences."
"We covered homework chapter 7. We spent most of our time on questions about converting light to energy and manipulating variables for wavelength/frequency/velocity/mass E = hv = hc/lambda. It was a joy working together!"
"We first warmed up with a jumping game. It's a new game I introduced to both of them. We reviewed the numbers, dialog, Q&As and writing of the characters. They were better at the writing. Today's new vocab words to write were mouth and white. The homework is to write all the mistakes as well as the new vocab 10-20 times each."
