Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to review practice problems in his AP Calculus book. We specifically covered topics such as antidifferentiation. He continues to work hard and cover many problems. We are still working on specific issues as they arise, and we will continue to practice to ensure he has all the specifics memorized and understood. He will continue to work through the remaining chapters in his book."
"We continued to work on probability problems involving the laws of probability, along with conditional probability, and Venn diagrams. Overall, the student has a much better understanding of what to do compared with last week."
"The first session with the student went extremely well. We covered basic concepts of algebraic expressions as well as equations. He was receptive to everything I taught and showed more enthusiasm as time went on. I told him to work the practice problems from the book before the next session. This session was a definite win, as I was able to understand his study methods and current level of math, and also how to best progress from here. I am looking forward to future sessions!"
"Today was a review: inequalities, percent word problems, probability, statistics, and ratios were all covered. We did a lot of ratio and percent word problems. We did a few statistics problems where the student had to find what percent he had to receive on the next test to receive an overall average of 95%. We finished the session with a perimeter problem where the length of a garden was 5 times its width. He wrote everything down and we made an equation. By next session, I will contact his teacher and bring assessment exam test resources to work on."
"In this session, the student and I reviewed his multiplication. He slightly got confused with multiplying and adding mixed numbers, which we will keep working on. He is motivated to succeed in math. I left the student with about 8 math problems to complete."
"In today's session we covered factoring by grouping, factoring trinomials when the leading coefficient is 1 and began to practice factoring trinomials when the leading coefficient was not equal to 1. As a part of this we practiced factoring and finding the greatest common factor of two numbers. The student struggled most with her confidence in her math skills. I think with practice she will get more comfortable trusting herself and will be able to progress more quickly. She had a very positive attitude through the session, and was not discouraged even when she had trouble."
