Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test on the 12th. We spent the session going through his chapter 2 material, doing example problems, and reviewing problems he had worked on."
"The student and I continued the topic of multiplying and dividing multi-digit numbers. The student is tremendously improving on these topics. I gave the student a worksheet to help him practice with his multiplication. I recommended the student to memorize the multiplication table (1x1 to 12x12)."
"We covered the definition of limits and determining the range of close x and y values for a given closeness to a point. We discussed continuity and differentiability. We practiced drawing graphs of functions and derivatives. We worked out how to pair a function with it's derivative. Finally, we drew the graph of the derivative from the original function and the graph(s) of the original fxn from a derivative."
"We're really starting to get into a lot of information about how to research; primarily semantics and research methods (epistemology/scientific method/etc.). So the student and I spent a little time reviewing after class. This time also includes time spent typing up lectures notes and in class assignments for the student."
"Covered topics in basic geometry. Types of shapes, categories and classes. Discussed axes of symmetry and congruent shapes. Worked on exercises involving use of a compass and straight edge, such as copying lines and angles, bisecting lines and angles, and problems involving both types of techniques."
"1st we looked over her homework assignment for the night. It involved identifying the commutative, associative, and identity properties. I attempted to practice subtraction that involved borrowing. I asked the student if her teacher was giving minute quizzes for math; she told me that it was something her teacher told her they were going to be doing soon."
"The student worked some problems involving relations and functions, and also domain and range. Then she worked problems involving substituting numbers into functions. She struggled with some fractions at first, but then learned how to work with fractions and mixed numbers."
"The student and I reviewed her homework to make sure it was correct because she started it in school. She was working on place value of numbers up to 100 million and multiplication and division. She got everything correct! We also reviewed turning a mixed number into an improper fraction. She did well with this. We also worked on the introduction of long division. We did some practice ones and she was able to do it independently. We will continue to work on this. We also did multiplication minute and she did very good! Her highest score was 29!"
"We spent three hours going over algebra and trigonometry in preparation for the student's test. Overall he did very well. It was great to get to work with him."
"With the student we went over his review sheet and his graded quiz. We worked on converting fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions, compare and ordering decimals, fractions, and integers. Student two and I worked on scientific notation. She had good knowledge of the concept. We also worked on setting up and solving proportions from similar figures. Great session, everything went well, look forward to next session."
"In this session, the student and I reviewed the area homework that I left him. He did very well with it and he seemed happy that he understood the concepts so well. Overall he did excellent. After we went over the homework, we started to cover the Pythagorean theorem. We did a couple of exercises where he had to find the hypotenuse and decipher if certain measurements resulted in a right triangle. I left him with a couple of similar questions, which he seems pretty confident with. Overall, the session went great!"
"Tonight was my first session with the students. We did the entire session on the phone. We talked about Relative risk and Absolute risk, calculating t values, confidence levels, and Cumulative percentiles and Cumulative frequency. We also went over scale verses linear data, and statistical inference (particularly type 1 and type 2 errors). Next session, we will be focusing on questions from the class lectures and homework."
