Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for the student's final. There was a fair amount of material, but we covered most of it. Overall I believe he will be fine."
"The student is still working with some logarithms, so we studied for the SAT he is taking next weekend. He had a lot of material to study from. We mainly looked at the last few math problems since he seems to have the rest under control."
"We worked on inequalities with one variable. The student understands concepts easily, but more practice always helps reinforce what we work on."
"Today we practiced substitution, addition, subtraction, and multiplication. The student is making some mistakes with negative signs, so we worked on problems with negatives and identified ways to check our work."
"We reviewed exponentials and logarithms for her Monday exam. Afterwards, we started to discuss beginning Trigonometry. We looked at Radian measurement, Arc Length, Arc Velocity and Trig functions (sin, cos, tan, etc.)"
"We studied for the final exam this Friday. His teacher provided him a list of topics that is going to be in the exam, so we first went over that. Then we finished the session with solving problems in his AP Calc prep book."
"We went over a science project abstract. Student one and I outlined brief construction of the abstract involving her detergent research. Student two and I reviewed for his midterm involving basic algebraic equations and lines."
"Today's session was focused on simplifying polynomials and the properties of exponents. I assisted the student complete her homework assignment and reviewed extra questions in order to make sure she understood the material."
"The student and I reviewed for an upcoming midterm in Algebra 1 by going over problems involving solving algebraic equations, simplifying expressions, and factoring polynomials. By the end of the session, he was able to solve the problems correctly."
"During this first session, factoring quadratic equations and completing the square was reviewed. The student had some difficulties with understanding the concepts, but was able to solve problems by the end of the session."
"We completed a review over factoring polynomials, factoring the difference of 2 squares, and rationalizing denominators in preparation for an upcoming test. We also discussed the meaning and use of the term "i" in algebra."
"We reviewed writing equations of lines in standard, slope-intercept, and point-slope forms. By the end of the session, the student was able to take two points and write the equation of its line on her own."
