Session Summaries by Test Prep Tutors

Spring Valley, NV Test Prep tutoring
Today, the student and I continued our preparation for the SAT and focused our attention on the Math section. He only struggled slightly with the material, namely systems of equations and probability. He had a positive attitude throughout the session and remained engaged in the material. I included strategies to convey certain concepts and simplify complex solutions. I assigned homework so that we can review any errors at our next meeting. I do not have any concerns and look forward to our next session.

Today, we worked on writing a five paragraph essay. We talked about introductory paragraphs, main ideas, supporting details, and conclusions. We reviewed examples together, and I wrote some specific examples when a concept was unclear, such as how to write a good introductory sentence to hook the reader's attention. We then completed an assignment for her English class, which was to write the outline of a five-paragraph persuasive essay. The student responded to a prompt on what kind of allowances should be given to children with a unique response: that no regular rewards should be provided at all, but rather that the parents should talk to their child and teach them how to take responsibility and feel pride for their work without gifts or compensation. Finally, we completed another assignment, which was turning the outline into a full essay. She came up with three good arguments to support her claim and ended up with a strong paper.

Today's lesson with the student included the following: Greetings & introductions, review of study objectives for next three weeks, his completion of a writing sample, practice reading exercises, and vocabulary review. I recommended helpful TOEFL study guides and an app to help with his test prep. One area that he struggles with and needs to work on, is vocabulary acquisition. Per his guardian's suggestion, I will be assigning homework starting tomorrow. He was attentive and had a great attitude during our session together.

Tonight the student and I worked through the remainder of the first practice exam for the SAT Physics test. Since she is preparing to take the test this weekend, we are focusing on properly applying relevant equations and recognizing what a question is asking for.

Tonight we went at warp speed! We started with him doing a few problems to review optics. Next, I spent about an hour covering Thermal physics, thermodynamic processes, heat engines, and heat exchange. He was familiar with much of the material from chemistry, but he needed to go over the thermal physics portion. Finally, we wrapped up with modern physics. I talked about wave vs particle properties of light and how they are evidenced in the photoelectric effect and in atomic energy levels of electrons. I tried to give him a good scope of why the material is significant, with regard to how the experiments determining these properties were set up and other natural evidence of the behaviors. We then briefly discussed nuclear physics and radioactive decay, as well as Einstein's E=mc^2 and where the nuclear energy comes from during a nuclear reaction.

Topics covered include ecology & evolution, speciation, logistical population growth, natural selection, Hardy-Weinberg principles and equations, randomness, fitness, gene flow, genetic drift, and practice problems in ecology. The student had asked to review ecology principles for this session. I asked the student to do some practice problems in her book this week, and to do them without looking at notes. I also asked her to star the ones she has trouble with so we can see if her mistakes are more on ones she makes gut decisions on or the ones she thinks through a lot. I asked her to send me topics she's confused on, so I can send her good links or videos to review. I told her to really push through the next 2 weeks, because after that, she won't have to study anymore!!
