Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked for tomorrow's exam. The student finished her exam worksheets on trigonometric transformations, unit circle, and bonus graphs. I felt she was well prepared for the exam. She did all the problems with minor supervision, so I'm confident even if she doesn't get a 100% she will be get over 85%. I am still waiting on her last exam which should come back this upcoming week. She is a smart student who just needs clarification on minor points. This can be fixed with enough practice and review. What was great about today's session was that we are getting to the point where we are able to go over a lot of practice problems instead of me having to teach her the concepts. This is a great sign because she not only understand the concepts, but she can apply them to a variety of situations."
"The student and I worked on her chapter 6 practice test. We were able to get through the entire assignment. I gave the student extra practice before the end of the session."
"In this session we worked on the student's first statistics assignment for the semester. I covered how to import a data set and calculate different values in the data set using Excel functions. It was a solid session."
"In our last session, the student and I reviewed Chapter 8 in preparation for his chapter test. He handled the material very well, and I have full confidence that he will do well on the exam. I plan to bring a practice test for him next week that encompasses all that we have gone over thus far in preparation for his final."
"Today we covered the second half of the review packet for the student's final. This included finding inverse functions and graphing them, solving word problem inequalities, solving systems of equations, writing equations in slope intercept form, and solving matrices. The student is very comfortable with matrix type problems and is getting better at word problems. He is understanding the importance of writing down what you know before trying to solve a problem. He sometime forgets steps when it comes to solving systems of equations, so we spent extra time talking through these times of problems."
"This was our last session before the student's high school prep exam. I brought her the review sheet that covers all the information she should be 100% comfortable with, and three more sets of questions that covered simplifying radicals, the Pythagorean theorem, and inequality solving. I also brought back some work that needed to be corrected and explained what to her what her errors where. We finished a bit early with test prep, so we finished the session by going over her homework for the 8th grade math class. In the future we plan on doing this and working on other problem sets that I bring for her that relate to her core math studies."
