Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over logarithmic and exponential functions, including their conversions and operations. We worked on a practice worksheet that the student's teacher had given out. We also reviewed rational functions and their operations. He had some trouble with the latter, and we spent some time on it to clarify it for him. He had a pretty good grasp of the material after the session. He was engaged and attentive during the session."
"Student 1 and I discussed conduction, convection, and radiation. I think that she really understood her material once we went over it. Student 2 and I worked on a practice worksheet that I brought with me, and I made up some problems to go over afterwards. She knows her math quite well; she just needs to be more confident in herself. They're both very bright students, and I'm happy to help them both."
"The student spent most of her time working on factoring on quadratic equations--splitting into factored form, finding solutions, and a little discussion on the graphs these equations create. She was very bright and responsive, picking up any gaps in her understanding very quickly."
"We reviewed naming polynomials as monomials, binomials, trinomials, or polynomials. Then, we worked on evaluating polynomials when given values for the variables and asked to simplify. We also reviewed the distributive property and combining like terms. He has a homework assignment, and I will send a second assignment when he completes his first."
"The student was still reviewing for his test since they did not take it last week. We reviewed his class test review together, which he will turn in on Monday. He had answered most of the questions correctly. There were only about 4 that he had to re-work, which were mainly word problems about inequalities. He has a handle on solving equations as well as graphing inequalities. I feel that he will earn a fairly high grade on this upcoming test based on the level of work that he has been completing, as well as his confidence. We introduced writing equations from tables, which is an upcoming in class subject, and he seemed to understand it pretty well."
"The student and I went over AP Calculus AB problems from a take-home packet, involving various topics, including finding the relative extrema of a function and related rates. She was very receptive, and by the end of the session, she was able to solve the problems correctly."
