Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Good to see the student again. During this session, we worked on the student's online problems. The problem set was comprised of difficult modeling: Hooke's law, arc length, surface areas, and some volumetric modeling methods. The student is getting a good understanding of the material."
"We reviewed the topics we talked about last time we met including integration by substitution, using tables to do integrals and some trigonometric integrals. We are also focusing on integration by substitution."
"The student and I worked on sample problems for sections 7.4-7.6 in chapter 7. We covered the concepts of subtracting fractions using models, adding and subtracting fractions, and renaming improper fractions and mixed numbers. I stressed the importance of checking over our work and showed the student how to do so. He explained he felt much more confident at the end of our session."
"The student has made progress in her understanding of logarithmic functions and their rules. With trigonometry being the next (and huge) part of her precalculus class I have been preparing work for her to begin next week. This session we focused entirely on preparing for the big logarithmic and exponent test this Tuesday. She does really well at solving the functions for x but needed a better grasp of why the properties work for these functions. We covered the proofs for these rules and worked through several exponential equations from my college calculus textbook. The rest of our time was spent working out the use of n in terms of periods over n-days in rate functions. I left her with some notes on what we she should have solidified for the test, and we are meeting one more time tomorrow. I think she could do really well on this test."
"We went through his homework that he had to submit. It was about the ratio and proportions, I explained how he has to solve them and asked him to solve them to make sure he understood them. We also covered some questions on percent and rate of increase and decrease. He was able to do them by himself. He is doing great."
"The student and I read the next section from his math book, took notes on the new concepts and completed the corresponding workbook page. This section covered an introduction to functions and graphing, with vocab terms such as domain, range, input, output, etc."
