Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help going over a study sheet as review for an upcoming exam. We started out discussing null hypothesis significance testing. Then we worked on several vignettes which required identifying research design and variables. She seemed to have some difficulty translating the words into elements of research design so we went over that in detail. We spent some time working out techniques that will help her stay organized as she attempts difficult vignettes."
"Today, we continued reviewing for the AP Exam. We first went over the 3 take home quizzes the student had recently taken then dove into the AP Calculus AB booklet. We finished the multiple choice with no calculator part. We will pick up on Sunday."
"Today, the student and I worked on using the quadratic equation and practiced other ways to find the roots of a parabola (namely factoring and graphing). Afterwards, we did practice questions from an old assessment exam that covered the same topic that she is currently learning as well as past topics that we reviewed together in previous sessions. She is very comfortable, it seems, with the current class material, and we will need to start reviewing more diligently past topics that she has forgotten about or recalls very little from."
"We started by reviewing the free-response section of the test the student took this week. After that, we completed our review of the multiple choice portion of her practice exam. Much of the content was review from earlier in the year; however, there were a few newer topics, such as area between two curves."
"In this session we covered inner products and orthogonal spaces. This material builds substantially on previous material. As long as you remember the formula for the dot product, in general you should be able to build a lot of the theorems without substantial difficulty by drawing geometric diagrams. Anyway, good work. Keep it up!"
"We covered linear equations, slopes, intercepts, dependent and independent variables, and finding the coordinates where two lines meet. I taught him many different strategies. I left him a few problems for every topic we covered for homework."
