Rensselaer Tutoring FAQ

Rensselaer, New York, is a city within Rensselaer County, and is located opposite of Albany on the Hudson River. It was first settled in 1628, and it has enjoyed a rich industrial and railroad history. The Rensselaer area had a brewery and several farms by 1642. It was finally incorporated in 1897, and now is home to around 9,000 residents.

Students in the city attend Rensselaer Junior/Senior High School, which is run by the Rensselaer City School District. Getting to Albany from Rensselaer is extremely easy, and it only takes about five minutes by bike or car. There, you'll find many excellent colleges and universities, which includes The University at Albany-SUNY, Binghamton University, and Stony Brook University.

You'll find several charming and quaint locations to visit in Rensselaer, and there are even more areas to explore in the communities surrounding it. One of Rensselaer's educational spots to check out is the Crailo State Historic Site, which is a museum that outlines the history of early Dutch settlers. The museum's basement walls trace their origin back to 1660, making it one of the oldest structures in the region. Tours are offered, and it gives a believable look into a pre-British colonial home. Another destination to investigate is Regal Cinemas East Greenbush 8, which is an ideal place to see the latest movies. It is an old-style theater; the staff are all friendly and welcoming, and the seats are quite comfortable. A New Beginning Consignment Shop is also worth visiting if you like to shop, and there, you can find anything from women's clothing to Irish jewelry and antiques. The quality of its items is superb, and the merchandise is curated before it is permitted to enter the sales floor. Just across the Hudson River, you'll find Albany and the New York State Capital, which is always worth a visit. This unique looking building is a majestic testament to late 19th-century architecture, and it took 5 architects over 32 years to complete.

Recent Rensselaer Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by John in Rensselaer, NY
The student and I went over his next chapter in full, mainly because he found each section easy enough. This chapter is on the properties of exponents. We began by simplifying exponents: from cancelling out like terms in fractions to working with fractional or negative exponents. Next we solved exponential equations by squaring or cubing both sides, for example. We moved towards adding, subtracting, dividing or multiplying f(x) and f(g) functions, which led into inverse functions. All along the way we did random problems to check his understanding and he nailed all of them. I demonstrated the test for inverse functions: f(f-1(x))=x. Finally we looked at graphing radical functions and checking if inverses are indeed functions. We used a graphing program to see how different variations of the form a, h, and k affected the graph.

Tutoring review by Zachary in Rensselaer, NY
The student had just completed a test, so we worked ahead and went over his new upcoming chapter material on DNA Replication and RNA replication/synthesis. From there, we answered concept essay questions from the book that will likely be on the next exam. At the end of the session, I outlined flashcard concepts to practice and what material from the chapters he should study/learn for tests and potential essay questions.

Tutoring review by David in Rensselaer, NY
The student and I spent the entire time progressing through the semester's accounting homework. She actually has quite a knack for it, and only needs redirection on a few things like where accts. payable and accts. receivable fit into the balancing equation.

Tutoring review by Nimia in Rensselaer, NY
Since our last session the student has started learning algebra 1. We spent the session preparing her for a quiz and working problems in a study guide and extra practice I brought. We practiced solving two step algebraic equations and word problems. She finds solving for unknown variables easy, but she was not confident in writing out algebraic expressions from word problems. We worked 14 word problems, similar to the ones the professor suggested. She progressively became more comfortable.

Tutoring review by Brian in Rensselaer, NY
This week we reviewed the student's homework on fractions and mixed numbers. He understands the material, but makes mistakes when he rushes. We continued to take the practice placement exam to identify areas where he needs to study more. We will complete the test next week then continue with lessons tailored to his deficits.
