Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent today going over the student's test. We went over some problem solving strategies, and good rules of thumb for convergence tests. We continued our study of the Lagrange error and what it means in practical application, as well as applying one Taylor series to a similar series within a certain error. Student has a quiz next Tuesday, and we have a session before that, so we will gear up for review."
"We reviewed hypothesis test for proportions, 1-proportion confidence intervals, and conditions for a 1-proportion confidence interval. The student's attitude was very positive!"
"We started out with a little review, because the student had said that there were problems on the test she took last week that required concepts she'd learned months ago and had forgotten. As usual, after one or two practice problems, she quickly realized that she does remember how to do it. We did her homework, which was very easy for her, and then moved ahead one chapter section just so that she could get a sense of what is coming up in her class."
"We completed all of chapter 5 but the unit exams. The student plans to work through the chapter 5 exams before next session, and I'll provide guidance for her remaining questions. She has shown excellent improvement. She has grasped concepts that were difficult in our first few lessons. Great job!"
"We covered a worksheet that used square grids to demonstrate multiplication problems. He was fine with counting the squares, but the equations themselves were still shaky. I recommended reviewing the multiplication tables again extensively."
"The student had a review packet for his midterm which is this coming Monday. He completed as much of it as he could. I reviewed with him what he completed and helped him with the problems he did not complete. There were around 10 problems that he answered incorrectly and I helped him correct them. The review packet covered whole numbers and decimals, patterns and variables, number theory and fractions, operations with fractions and problem solving using whole numbers, decimals, fractions and mixed numbers. He had a bit of trouble at first with getting the variable by itself in solving but then understood. He showed him a few tricks for greatest common factor multiple choice problems. He reported to me that he had a B- for his math grade in the 1st marking period and it improved to an A for the second marking period."
