Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts we covered were factoring and solving polynomial equations, and dividing polynomials. The student brought her own questions, which was great! She was able to complete the factoring problems almost completely on her own. She needed help with synthetic division. After we did a few practice problems, she got the hang of it!"
"Today we covered foiling binomials and other polynomials. The student needed help with remembering to add exponents when multiplying like variables, so we focused a lot on that today. I gave here about thirty review problems for her final. She is completing her course this week."
"We reviewed the graphing of inequalities problems I assigned the student. We also covered solving two-steps equations and inequalities as well as word problems. He is making efforts to practice what we cover and asking questions. I went through each of the problems and showed him the best approach while explaining each step. Then, I had him work out similar problems by himself. I assigned him some more problems on the topics we covered. He has a thorough understanding of graphing inequalities and solving them. He is also able to solve most of the two-step equations but is just having a bit of difficulty with equations involving fractions. In the next session, I will continue to help him with fraction concepts and solving word problems."
"The student was having difficulty with rounding, particularly with decimals. We went over her classwork and did many practice problems. By the end of the session, she felt much better. Her sister and I worked on finding the circumference and area of circles. She is doing great, so I gave her some extra challenging word problems."
"The student seemed very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Mainly he seemed to grasp all the topics about polar and Cartesian coordinate conversions. Also, we went over how to find areas of polar functions and subtract them from each other and finding areas between two polar functions."
"I reviewed electric circuits with the student, including Kirchhoff's and Ohm's laws and other properties of circuits. In addition, we reviewed integration using u-substitution. Overall, he has a good understanding of how to work these problems."
