Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help with her lesson on complex roots. We discussed the rule about complex roots always occurring with their conjugate. We also reviewed her quiz on rational expressions, and we discussed her mistakes in cancelling. Finally, I gave her a preview of her next section on vertical asymptotes."
"Today, we reviewed the Chapter 8 practice test worksheet given by the student's teacher. There were about 35 problems or so covering all the sections that he was taught from Chapter 8. He did very well. Again, I commended him on his understanding of logarithmic functions, as I have seen many students struggle in this area. I feel very confident in his abilities on this exam; I even told him I'm expecting an A, and he agreed."
"For this session, the student brought some assignments to complete for school. He was able to finish the majority of one assignment, which was a review assignment involving algebraic expressions. He should continue to practice these skills in order to build understanding and mastery. It was helpful for him to bring his work from school. I continue to encourage him to do this so that his sessions are more meaningful as they relate to what he is currently learning."
"The student and I worked on SAT math, specifically substituting variables. She was engaged in the material and listened well. I had her repeat problems that she struggled with the first time in order to solidify the material. She seems to be improving in math reasoning from the last time we met."
"We went over the next two sections in the student's math course, 7.1 and 7.2, introductory concepts in geometry. She understands the concepts well and enjoyed this session. There was an activity, which she liked. She got an 85% on chapter 6, which was an improvement."
"Today, we reviewed two of the student's assignments she struggled with. We mainly focused on trigonometric substitution solving techniques for integration and the inverse trigonometric integrals. She picked up on the new material very quickly and showed great improvement!"
