Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session went well. The student did not have any homework and has not started a new unit, so we began reviewing material from the beginning of the semester in preparation for her upcoming final. I asked her to finish reviewing chapter 4 and to do 3 practice problems for every concept she does not feel confident about."
"The student and I went over a practice exam she asked me to make. We covered a few problems from each section of homework she had. The problems the student had trouble with were mostly related to defining surfaces and areas parametrically."
"Today, the student and I worked on exponential and logarithmic integrals, area, and the fundamental theorem of calculus. This session went very well and was focused completely on the review problems leading up to the test. The problems went well and I believe he was able to understand them. We are part way there to preparing for the exam."
"The student had a final review packet. She'd done problems from the first sections and had a couple questions. I reviewed the multiplication principle of counting and when to use combinations and permutations. Then we worked through the logarithm and exponential problems. Since her final is on Wednesday, I'll visit on Tuesday for a last minute review."
"We covered and checked the review sheet for the final, focused on the graphing functions, calculated x and y-intercepts and asymptotes, domain, and range. The student's understanding has improved a lot and he is working problems on his own. He received a 95 on his graph project a week ago, and his average came up to passing of a 71. He is going to work through more of the review to be ready for the final that counts for 15% of his grade. We will add another session for Tuesday if he feels that it is needed, but I think that is doing well and has improved a lot."
"The student and I worked on division word problems/performance tasks. We discussed how you know when to use division. We also discussed checking our division with multiplication. The student has become more confident with division. Next time she will be creating her own division word problems"
