Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our session this week, the student and I reviewed for her test on Chapter 5. She completed problems #1-22 from the Chapter 5 test in her textbook. As she was completing problems, she did a great job remembering the formulas/rules when graphing rational expressions. Overall, she feels pretty confident with the concepts, and knows she will do well on her test."
"We discussed a few problems involving frequency distributions and the normal distribution. I worked the problems out with the student and he has a good understanding of them. We are going to work some problems from his next class in our Thursday session."
"The student and I looked over the instructor's solutions to the first quiz which had given him some challenges. He has questions with the formality of an abstract math class. I am sending him some review material over abstract algebra so that he can try and get a better feel for the underlying structure of things like vector spaces and sets."
"We reviewed for the test she has on Tuesday. Similar to last week, we solved problems on graphing rational functions with asymptotes, end behavior, and zeroes. The student understands the concepts. She takes the ACT on Saturday."
"The student and I worked on overall 6th grade math standards. She was able to complete her homework in the allotted time. The student knows how to solve problems involving basic operations."
"The student and I went over his course assignment, solidifying the concepts wherever necessary. We covered introductory topics, including solving systems of equations (involving a single variable, multiple variables, fractions, and lengthy equations) and compound interest. We also worked out word problems, learning how to translate them into mathematical expressions. A great portion of the problems we dealt with tied together many of these concepts into single problems. The student has a good grasp on the logic behind the problems. He is able to understand the literal meaning of an expression and picks up on concepts well. He is also very quick with mental math (addition, subtraction). Moving forward, we want to continue building confidence when starting the problems and finding methods to aid in following a problem consistently through to the end. He seemed very receptive of the tutoring. As we discussed the concepts, he seemed to understand them well. I left him to read over the modules provided by his professor, read through the assigned sections of his textbook as needed, and attempt the next homework to the best of his ability before our following session."
