Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our session, the student and I completed an exam review sheet for a test that she has coming up next week covering simplifying equations and inequalities involving radicals (cubics and squares). She did very well during our session."
"We worked through a review worksheet on finding average velocity, direction, etc. of a particle with a given x (t). We reviewed how to calculate the average of a function using an integral. We then worked through homework problems about calculating the volume of 3-D figures via discs and washers. I drew special attention to correctly finding the cross-sectional area of washers to ensure that the student will be ready for his quiz on Tuesday."
"He had a test the next day, so we worked through his review sheet and went over a quiz he got back. After that we pulled up a couple worksheets from the online text book that covered material that was on his test."
"Studied for upcoming math test on percentages, fractions, probabilities, and proportions. Reviewed previous math quiz and went over mistakes. Finished review assignments in order to prepare for this week's test. Completed problems converting fractions to percentages, reducing fractions, finding probabilities, solving for the variable in proportions problems, and creating equations for word problems covering the same concepts. Went over three ways to check answers: by plugging in variables, by working backwards, and by using estimates."
"The student and I met and worked on his homework for chapter 7.1 - solving systems of equations. We did plenty of practice graphing the equations and rearranging equations to graph able form. I also showed him how to solve systems by elimination to double check answers found by graphing."
"The session went well today! The student and I worked through several review problems for his upcoming exam. I look forward to hearing how he does on his exam. He was very confident and seemed to know how to work through all of the problems without much trouble. With a new section starting soon in school I hope to expand what we have worked on and provide materials that he can use to help him understand the new material."
