Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I conducted a review of topics in preparation for his final examination. We covered percent problems. Equivalent ratio models with tape diagrams. We discussed some test taking strategies. Get a good nights sleep. Be well fed. Be physically comfortable. I advised him to answer all questions that he easily understands in one quick reading. Easy multiple choice questions in which he can quickly eliminate wrong answers. Then finish with wordier more complicated questions."
"We reviewed some topics that would be potentially be on the upcoming final exam. I also gave the student some links to videos regarding the subject."
"The student and I reviewed for his test. We looked over the chapters in the book as well as previous tests and quizzes. Any things that were still unclear to him were discussed. I put together a sheet with relevant information and things to remember for the chapters we covered. I have asked him to gather any more questions and uncertainties for our session tomorrow. Tomorrow we will do a last review for his test."
"Today was all about conics. We covered the focal points and directrix for various shapes and how to calculate all of them. This can sometimes be difficult work, but the student cruised right through all of it. She is in good shape to finish this class in a strong fashion."
"We covered more of a practice test. The student needed help with basic algebra skills and solving equations. It would help her to practice doing basic algebra problems to get a solid foundation before moving on to larger formulas. We will finish the practice test next session."
"Today we reviewed Chapter 10 for a test on Tuesday. The student knows the material. We reviewed graphing equations, finding the square of an equation, and using the quadratic formula. Then we worked on a word problem."
