Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student reviewed operational analysis using linear programming, solving problems using the graphical method and Excel solver modeling."
"We completed practice problems from the review packet covering topics on sample design, binomial probability, normal distributions, z-scores, and discussing summary statistics."
"The student is preparing for his semester final exam on Monday. We began by talking a bit, and we browsed his table of contents of his book, so that he can regain confidence, and do some review. We worked on a section of problems from his second exam that he had written by hand. These were on the CDF table and variables. We also did a binomial problem that used the mean and variance in the Normal CDF table to estimate the probability answer. He learned that most PDF's can reasonably be approximated by the Normal PDF and CDF. Then, we worked a straight binomial problem, brushed over the geometric, exponential, and Gamma distributions. Next we went over practicalities of working with Conditional Probabilities, and he got it tonight by working three variations of one 3D joint PDF table. He is going to do some reading for homework."
"Student A finished up his reading packet for this week. He did a very good job with it. Student A finished up most of his science project. He did an excellent job with the project; all that was left for him to do was decorate his cell organelle brochure with pictures. He and I also worked on math; specifically, we continued working with shapes."
"The student had a sizable geometry worksheet that encompassed the properties of circles, tangents, angles, chords, arcs, and their interaction. She grasped some of the concepts readily, especially those on circumference and angle properties; she had more trouble with calculating arcs and related properties. We will meet again on Wednesday, unless a test or quiz is imminent."
"Today we covered word problems, arithmetic, bar graphs, shapes, decimals, tables, unit conversion, volume, area, order of operations, and multiplying fractions. I went reviewed homework assignments with Student A and one homework assignment with Student B. Both were doing well this session. They have shown improvement and made fewer mistakes than before. They were positive towards the material that was reviewed. I went through their homework assignments and gave them tips on how to solve the problems more efficiently. I left Student A with the other half of his homework assignment to finish on his own because his hour was up. They have both improved in math. They made very few mistakes today and showed a good understanding of the material when it comes to math. However, I recommend that they read more books to improve their reading proficiency and comprehension."
