Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed for the student's exam on the surface area of polyhedrons. We went through practice problems focusing mostly on prisms."
"After we completed and reviewed the student's homework, he informed me he had a unit quiz coming up next week, so we began a review of the unit he'll be tested on."
" The student and I spent today's session working on geometry. Her class had recently started studying how to calculate the areas of triangles, squares, rectangles, and parallelograms, and as such she had been assigned a worksheet to review the material. We started be reviewing the formulas used to calculate the area of each shape: triangle = 1/2 (base)(height), square = (side)(side), rectangle = (length)(width), and parallelogram = (base)(height). From there, we began actually working on the homework."
"We worked on solving triangles. We split our time between special triangles and regular triangles. Several methods were used to solve for the unknowns of the triangles, and he seemed to understand the processes."
"The student and I continued to work through concepts involving complex polynomials. We focused on developing a systematic approach that would minimize errors."
"We continued working on free-response practice questions for the AP exam. In particular, we focused on rate-of-change problems and discussed how to approach these questions with graphical and numerical methods."
