About Cordova

Cordova, Tennessee, has a population of approximately 35,000 residents and is located in Shelby County, Tennessee. The town was founded in 1835 and was known for shipping freshly cut flowers to Memphis. It went through several name changes before finally settling on Cordova in 1900. Cordova has a strong connection to the railroad as the town was one of the stops on the railway that traveled between Nashville and Saint Louis. The town still preserves its history with a historic downtown area. Several areas within Cordova were annexed by the city of Memphis, Tennessee.

The public high school in Cordova is called Cordova High School. It also has a private high school, which is called Saint Benedict at Auburndale. The closest city is Memphis, Tennessee, which is approximately half an hour away. Memphis has a wide range of top colleges, including the Memphis College of Art, the Baptist College of Health Sciences, LeMoyne Owen College, Rhodes College, and the University of Memphis. With Cordova tutoring in-home or online, you could potentially increase your odds of getting into these top schools, especially through private instruction for test prep. An enthusiastic Cordova tutor is eager to help you in your private test prep instruction, whether the tutoring session is in-home or online.

Today I met with the student. We reviewed her World History study guide. I gave the student some tips on preparing for her upcoming finals. We developed a study plan for the next week or so. She was receptive to the ideas and seems motivated to apply some of the suggested tips. Overall, the session went well.

Today we started with a review of planar geometry, making connections and transition to solid geometry. The student has shown improvement in the planar category of geometry, having performed a comprehensive review on his own between sessions. I reinforced that he use the websites on his own and to own his success. We transitioned into reading/ literature by reviewing "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost, connecting real-world situations in the student's life to the themes of the poem. We read the bible as well to complement this work; he's a fine young man and will have success if he takes it upon himself now to use the websites mentioned to do a review of algebra 1 and algebra 2. Best wishes to this wonderful young man!

Today we spent more time on nomenclature. The student told me that she felt very confident about the problems when I was there, but then had trouble working on her homework later. I provided her with a periodic table that included the oxidation states (charges) of each element. I had her do a set of five problems and looked for her weakest areas. She answered 3 out of 5 correctly (on her own) and was able to correctly answer the other 2 with some prompting. From that we made a checklist for her to look at after each problem to help her remember what to focus on. We put the list onto her new periodic table so that she has to look at it for each problem. Throughout the session, when she got stuck, my first prompt was "Have you done everything on your checklist?" so that she would get in the habit of relying on herself and her resources, instead of me. She did very well with this. We also spent time talking about nomenclature for acids. She and I created mnemonic devices to help her remember the suffix changes. She was able to answer 2 out of 3 correctly without any prompting. The third question she answered correctly with some prompting. A goal I have for the student is for her to become less reliant on me and any handouts I may give her. She is more than capable of solving these problems without me, but she needs to build some confidence. To help with that, she needs to make sure that she is memorizing the information. Flashcards are a very useful strategy. You can help her study by quizzing her on the flashcards. We will talk about additional strategies next session.

We went over the new section in the student's Math class, and we covered the relationships between the angle types in figures that have one line going through two lines. I had him measure all of the angles through a protractor and from that, I was able to show him the relationship that the angles have to each other, more specifically the meaning of supplementary and complementary.
