Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I went over sets, Venn diagrams, the laws of probability, conditional probability/independence, along with frequency statistics. The student has a decent understanding of the basic principles here, but he was confused by the conditional probability problems. I walked him step by step through a couple and recommended he practice some additional problems. In addition, I recommended he practice more mean, median, and quartile problems."
"We went over problems on the Chapter 4 worksheets that the student had not completed. These worksheets included multiplication and division with whole numbers and addition and subtraction with decimals and simple algebraic equations. He had a great attitude and showed interest in my explanations. He struggled the most with the algebraic equations."
"The student and I worked on improper integrals. He is doing most of the problems just fine and just need occasional reminders as to applying certain techniques, particularly rules when limits are involved. His class is going to discuss parametric equations next ."
"We completed remaining two problems from final exam review and completed the Additional Practice from final review packet. The student had done most of the problems and I checked his work while he worked on Cumulative Test Prep for Chapter 6. He got 91% on Chapter 6 exam. He works fast and understands that he needs to check his work. He is an excellent student and will do well on his final."
"The student and I went over her chapter 5 review problems that covered finding rational zeros, long division, graphing polynomials, and factoring polynomials. Overall, it appeared that she had a good understanding of the material but seems to make simple mistakes (i.e. mixing up signs), I told her to just be more conscious about carrying out signs. We have another session before her exam next week to tie up any questions or concerns she might be having."
"Today the student did a review packet in preparation for her exam tomorrow. We specifically covered factoring completely, completing the square, and functions (identifying when the function was increasing/ decreasing, identifying the domain/ range, etc.). She needed help the most with completing the square. Her attitude was very enthusiastic and she understood the material very well! Overall the session was successful and I believe she will do well on her exam. She also received 100 on the last quiz we prepared for."
