Session Summaries by Tutors

La Cañada Flintridge, CA tutoring
We reviewed her homework. First we completed assignment of factorization of trinomials. Then we completed most of assignment on factoring the difference of two squares. She did good work on most of the problems. I had her check many of the problems. Progress is being made. I asked her dad to help her.

The student didn't have any homework as they'd had a test that day in class, so she requested we look ahead to the next chapter. The first section was on direct versus inverse variations. As direct variations are essentially linear functions, she had no problem grasping that part of the section. Inverse variations were a bit different, but were still expressed in a familiar formula (xy=k), so she was able to grasp it quite quickly as well. Most of the problem involved picking coordinates and plugging them into the inverse variation formula, so she had no trouble there. I did take a moment to explain how the use of the variable k is usually how a constant is expressed in applied math (e.g. Kinetics in chemistry). We did problems that required her to use sets of coordinates to determine whether the variation was direct or inverse, which she did well in by simply plugging the coordinates into the respective formulas to determine which gave a constant k value. Otherwise, we spent the session working on problems that required her to graph inverse variations to get used to the general scheme of the functions. Overall, she had almost no trouble and seemed very confident with the material despite it being fairly new.

We went over some practice exams from the review book. It seems we need to concentrate on keeping the client focused and attentive during the long exam. So for this session we did a few timed sections from a previous SAT and then went over the answers together.

The student and I worked on vectors. We discussed finding the components of a vector from its magnitude and direction, adding vectors graphically and component-wise, and finding the magnitude and direction of a vector from its components.

We covered reading comprehension and recall, as well as strategies for annotating text. The student is super motivated and really bright. He struggled with concisely answering questions about the text, but with a little guidance was able to find the answers. A strategy I suggested for our next session was using post its to record thoughts, ideas, and unknown vocabulary. They are useful because the student can come back to the page later and this really helps with recall. Another strategy we used in the session was a story board drawing. This is useful because it takes the student away from the reading for a moment, while still engaging them in the text. Drawing is also relaxing, and a nice way to discuss the text in a different way.

Today we began with coverage of the math section. I advised the student to leave any complicated problems to the end if he prefers, rather than wasting time on a lot of computations. We also covered reading and writing. Overall, he understands the proper grammar. I advised him to make sure to read the sentences aloud. They're made to trip you up, but if he reads aloud the entire sentence (both what's in the correction space and out), he will be able to catch some trip-ups! Great work!
