Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's previous exam. The material on the exam seems to represent well the whole semester. We'll make math review cards as we cover and review this material. I plan to continue this process as we move into next semester since she has responded well to it."
"In this session the student and I went through properties of logarithms and using them to solve equations and word problems such as half life and compounded interests problems. He and I discussed the main rules to follow. He grasped the concepts and was able to lead the problems into algebra. We will continue to review the logarithm rules and simplifications. I told him to study the definition of a log and other rules so he could make the problems easier. I left him to continue to study for his exam tomorrow."
"The student worked on homework from the new chapter, the introduction of calculus. She first reviewed number theory, real, irrational, rational numbers, the result of adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying radical numbers. She also began reviewing asymptotes, holes, and limits approaching a certain value of x, tangent lines to graphs."
"In this session, the student and I reviewed for his upcoming test. He came prepared with questions pertaining to factoring, solving systems with 3 variables, and setting up systems of equations based on word problems. I showed him how to solve systems by solving for a variable and plugging it into another equation, which helped him a lot instead of adding equations together through elimination. We touched upon factoring and discussed how to solve problems when the coefficient a was not equal to one. He seemed confident at the end of our session and ready for his test."
"We reviewed the student's homework/ test that she had done previously. It was over finding zeros to equations, graphing, and synthetic division. She was struggling with some calculation errors and finding zeros to equations. She had a good time through the review as I taught proper factoring techniques."
"We mainly reviewed the topics that the student will be using for her math quiz on Monday. We worked on a few problems from her worksheets, then I made up some other questions to work on afterward. She seemed to get much better at function transformations in this session alone."
