Session Summaries by Summer Tutors

Summer Tutoring review by Meg in Plainfield, IL
We used the student's spelling words in sentences, again focusing on being descriptive. We then did some practice work and some flash cards for telling time to the hour and the half hour. She was initially having trouble on which hand meant what (hour vs min vs second) but she was getting better with it as we progressed.

Summer Tutoring review by Charlie in Plainfield, IL
We began with a math worksheet where each problem had three (single-digit) addends - though he made one or two minor mistakes, he had no issues with the math itself when he was focused. We then did a logic grid - a 7x7x7, the largest he's done so far - which he handled remarkably well, and with only minimal guidance. Because his attention was fading, we played rounds 4-10 of the traffic jam spatial reasoning game, which he seemed to be really improving at! We finished off by talking about some reading comprehension and summarization topics. Though our focus will continue to be on math, I'd like to do some story summarizing with the student; he is a bright kid, so he takes in a lot of details, and I'd like to look at finding ways to make sure he is able to separate out important information from less important info.

Summer Tutoring review by Julia in Plainfield, IL
This morning the student started Unit 3 Politics, Power and People in the K12 social studies course, completing Lessons 1 through 6. Quiz grades were 100% and 83% for the Lesson 3 quiz. The topic is the United States during the late 1800's -- the so-called "Gilded Age" to quote Mark Twain. Lesson 1 Getting and Giving told of rich businessmen such as Andrew Carnegie who ran steel mills and paid workers low wages. Then, at the end of his life Mr. Carnegie gave his money away to improve cities. The lesson mentioned Lady Liberty -- the student has been to New York and has seen her. Lesson 2 Mountains of Money taught about monopolies and banker J. P. Morgan. Business owners could have multiple companies and get rich at the expense of the workers and the environment. In Lesson 3 he learned that the government stepped in to break up the monopolies. He thought about advantages (lower prices, efficiency) and disadvantages (need for safety, quality, clean environment) of capitalism and free enterprise. Lesson 4 Building Cities discussed innovators and their works: skyscrapers, bridges, libraries and parks. Lesson 5 In Office briefly highlighted the lives of the Presidents who followed Lincoln upon his assassination. Finally, the student completed Lesson 6 A Third Party about the Populist Party created to support poor farmers. It was recommended that the student read the next 2 - 4 chapters in the text and work on 2 workbook pages on his own.

Summer Tutoring review by Andrea in Plainfield, IL
We worked on a few geography questions, relating to a John Muir quote and several things that she has been learning in class. We wrote about animal adaptations and limiting factors and how they show the interconnectedness in an ecosystem. We also went more in depth with 7th grade geometry. We discussed angles and how to find the missing angle in a quadrilateral problem. We watched several online educational videos about vertical angles and how to solve an angle problem.

Summer Tutoring review by Andrew in Plainfield, IL
The student received an A in his last quarter in math, a fantastic improvement, but he also saw his science grade slip. We will spend more significant time during future sessions working through science concepts and course material that he finds challenging, as well as make sure that he completes all of the written homework that he is assigned to avoid lost points. During today's session, we started with the new math material, an introduction to geometry, covering the initial concepts and the important labels for them. His class is looking primarily at angles and relationships between sets of angles; he is enjoying the material and is adept at problem solving involving spatial reasoning and images. The first two sections of the new chapter explore and test angle-drawing using a protractor, something with which he has no trouble. The last section his class has looked at is slightly more difficult, examining angle relationships and determining proper labels for both angles (acute, right, obtuse) and groups of angles (complementary, supplementary, adjacent, linear pairs). We were able to cover all of these labels and he understands what they mean and how to determine them, but we will still need to spend more time and complete more repetitions to make sure that they are fully memorized. He is off to a very good start in the quarter, however, and he and I are both confident he will perform very well, especially because he has a knack for this kind of material. He and I also spent the back end of our session reviewing his latest chapter in science and reviewing a worksheet testing terms and definitions within it. The main element in this chapter was electromagnetic radiation and its spectrum (radio waves, infrared, visible light, ultra violet radiation, X-ray radiation, and gamma radiation in order of lowest energy/lowest frequency/longest wavelength to highest energy/highest frequency/shortest wavelength). We looked at the origins of these waves, where they appear most commonly, and also very importantly how they are used/their effects in nature. This review was very helpful to him, simply covering the material again and discussing each type of electromagnetic radiation, and he will do well to create flashcards for each in order to make sure they are all fully memorized in time for a quiz or test. We will continue science review during our next session to make sure he is staying up to date with the all of the material.
