Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In preparation for the student's second Religion exam we went through in detail the outline that I prepared on his main reading for this unit (Christianity in "God is Not One"). We also planned out a week full of tutoring session times to get him fully prepped for the test and discussed what areas need the most focus."
"The student and I made further progress on his Lifetime Sports packet, completing a few more sections, including a portion with research material. We also began work on his next History study guide, defining every vocabulary term on the study guide with myself adding extra explanation and information."
"All of my students here on time and they were ready to work. They seemed a little nervous at first but soon relaxed and we got a lot of work done on vocabulary practice and analogies. Everyone was participating really well when it came to coming up with some good mnemonic devices for remembering all of the vocabulary words. They did a good job, especially considering it was a Saturday morning. It is always a pleasure to have students who are excited to learn."
"We reviewed vocabulary words. I add 4 new vocabulary words and she created a personal narrative from those words. She had a brief quiz over the structure of the ISEE essay and has completed the verbal reasoning section of the ISEE test and made note cards over the words she did not know. Then she reworked the problems using the note cards. She completed Mathematic Achievement sections and we reviewed the problems"
"Briefly covered Kirchhoff's law, and went on to discuss resistor-capacitor (RC), resistor-inductor (RL), and RLC circuits in electronics; how they operate, why we use them, and their real-life applications. Specifically covered the use of inductors and capacitors to create a stable supply, and how the two differ in accomplishing this goal. Also discussed how such elements can be used in DC circuits as the basis of differentiation or integration of a signal. Lastly, covered the use of inductors and capacitors in AC circuits, where currents through either are non-zero, but instead have imaginary components (and how these imaginary components can have very real effects)."
"We spent two hours on logical reasoning, covering main point, sufficient assumption, and necessary assumption questions. The student does really well with finding the missing link in assumption questions, but has to work on paying attention to specific language. Next session we will spend one hour on logic games, starting with p. 303 #4 in the review book and one hour on logical reasoning."
