These statewide exams are given by the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress system.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Ronald in Palmdale, CA
The student worked on his Chemistry assignment for ideal gas law and intermolecular forces. He did very well with his assignment as I was supervising his work. To help with his understanding of the overall concepts of ideal gas laws, I was explaining to him real world situations in which this concept would be used. I feel this will help further his understanding of the material.

Tutoring review by Brian in Palmdale, CA
This week we prepared for a history exam. The student already had notes from class that we turned into a flow chart as a review exercise. We focused on identifying major concepts and cause and effect relationships. We also began PSAT prep by working to identify question type and solving strategy. For next week, he is supposed to begin keeping an assignment log.

Tutoring review by Connor in Palmdale, CA
We spent today going over u-substitution, the ways of deciding which part of an integral to choose for u, and when to know that u-sub is the way to go. There were a couple complicated ones, but we got through them. We finished up with definite integrals and covering what happens when you evaluate an odd function from -a to a, namely, that the value of the definite integral is zero, and why that makes sense.
