Tutoring review by Salome in Pleasanton, CA
Started working on ISEE prep with the student. Went through her practice test to get a better idea on what she needs more help with. Did extremely well on reading comprehension and quantitative comparisons, but needs more help with the math sections that she hasn't yet reached in school.

We did a preliminary assessment on the verbal section of the MCAT and worked 2 passages of Organic Chemistry and one passage of Biology. Topics include aldol condensation, epoxide ring opening, pedigree chart reading. We discussed general test strategies and how she should study.

In this session, the student and I discussed problems of equilibrium.  We discussed how to use ICE tables in order to find starting concentrations and concentrations at equilibrium.  Lastly, we reviewed the importance of having a balanced equation and using the coefficients for the change in the ICE table.

Tutoring review by Linda in Pleasanton, CA
Today the student and I focused mainly on math and spelling homework. Currently, she is working on a combination of different math concepts including multiplying long digits, long division, converting fractions to percents, and a series of word problems that include the above areas. In language arts, she is starting to learn prefixes so in addition, I gave her a list of most-used prefixes and definitions so that she can master them for our next session. This will assist her for future reading passages and use of context clues as well as vocabulary once we begin our reading sessions.
