Tutoring review by Salome in Silver Spring, MD
Worked on homework on finding the areas of regular polygons. The student understands everything, just had trouble finding apothem and side lengths. All she needs to do is set up a right triangle and use previous knowledge of sin/cos, etc., to find missing information to set up an equation.

Tutoring review by Nainesh in Silver Spring, MD
Today we discussed Chapter 8 more in depth, focusing on the details.  The student did a great job in remembering the major processes of DNA Replication, Transcription and Translation.  We further went into DNA structure as a Double Helix, and also Gene Expression, in terms of the lac operon.  The student should do well on her upcoming quiz on Thursday.

Tutoring review by Herman in Silver Spring, MD
We reviewed recursive functions and I was happy to see that the student had retained his knowledge in this field. He was preparing for a trig quiz on Monday, and the one area he wanted to address was domain and range. I taught him to use a few restricted functions (y = sqrt x, y = x squared) and he seemed to get it pretty quickly. The rest of the time was spent going over problems with combinations and permutations, a subject that I always find tricky. The problems he had to do were not too difficult, however.

Tutoring review by Joshua in Silver Spring, MD
The student and I covered the strategies for the Reading section of the SAT today.  We covered strategies for sentence completions and critical reading questions.  He then applied the strategies he learned on one Reading section of the first practice exam.  He demonstrated progress on the critical reading questions and was able to answer a majority of the questions correctly.

Tutoring review by Elaine in Silver Spring, MD
I provided the study strategy info for learning Chinese. We worked on a study plan for this coming month. I recommended some materials for listening and tone practice. I also recommended him to study structure and vocabulary building. We reviewed verbs, sentence patterns, negative expressions, and question words. It was quite good to organize our study this way. He understood the important steps of his learning objectives.

Tutoring review by Laura in Silver Spring, MD
I met with the student today to continue to prep for the ISEE. She wanted to focus on the verbal sections of the test. We practiced more synonyms and then went onto a practice test. We began with synonyms which she did well with. We need to focus more on difficult vocabulary words. She did very well with sentence completion and reading comprehension.
