Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a few questions remaining from her homework, so we went over those problems, mainly dealing with graphing exponentials and calculating compounding interest. She had a good handle on these concepts, and she was able to perform them with minimal help. She had an upcoming test in her NSL class, so I helped her organize her material and gave her some tips about how to study her notes. We worked on using flashcards to go over vocabulary, making a "cheat sheet" to condense her extensive notes, and using key words to recall complex concepts. I think the biggest cause for her anxiety going into this test was the amount of material she had to know, so being able to condense it was definitely helpful."
"At the top of the session, the student reported that his last quiz seemed to go well although the results are not yet known. His understanding of logarithms is evident from his quick grasp of the new material, rules of logarithms. He worked on homework that covered rules of logarithms, in particular the sum/difference rules, as well as the power rule of logarithms. After working through one or two examples with me, he had no trouble setting up and solving the problems on his own."
"The student wanted to understand the topic of confidence intervals and we covered that from the basics during our session. We went through a couple of exercises as well from her book to get a deeper understanding of the topic."
"During today's session, the student completed an algebra I worksheet on linear equations. We identified the features of the equations that caused them to be parallel, have no solution, or have a solution that includes all real numbers. She is looking forward to receiving final placement in a math class. She indicated that she would prefer the consistency that would provide."
"We used a medical article to answer statistical questions for the student's Unit 9 paper. The student seemed generally confident about the material being reviewed."
"The student and I worked on dividing whole numbers from fractions and vice versa today. Without explaining it to him, I ask him how he thinks he should solve it--and he was correct on his first try! Impressive! Afterward, we focused on word problems relating to this particular subject."
