Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went through problems from Chapter 1 of a prepbook. The student continues to show a good grasp of the core concepts, but sometimes struggles to string them together on more complex problems. I also noticed that there's at least one formula that the textbook talks about that isn't really tested in any of the end-of-chapter problems, so I'll circle back and cover that."
"The student and I prepared for her math final next week. The topics that we covered include graphing and writing linear inequalities, rational and irrational numbers, exponent rules, and systems of equations. She had some trouble with the inequalities, but after repetition could walk me through problems. She did very well with exponents, however she needed help with systems of equations. I explained a step-by-step process to complete systems of equations by substitution. After a couple of problems, she caught on. We will continue preparing for her final next week. I asked her to list all the concepts that she continues to have issues with, and we will go over them."
"The student and I began studying for the test he has in a few days. As always he shows a great understanding of the fundamentals of the subject, he just needs some repetition. I feel confident that with tomorrow's session and his independent studies he will ace his test."
"We covered a wide variety of concepts in preparation for the student's final and retake possibilities. He was much better prepared this time around! We worked through a lot of material on law of sines, cosines, trig ratios, and related problems. He did well. We'll have a long session Sunday."
"We met for one final session to continue reviewing for the student's geometry final exam on Friday. We went over more proofs that she had struggled with. I reviewed with her proportions, ratios, similar triangles, and the trigonometric ratios (sin/ cos/ tan). She ought to do well on her test."
"I met with the student today and we went over a worksheet he brought about linear piecewise functions. He learned how to evaluate and graph them. After that, we started with solving system of two linear equations."
