Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished her math homework (simplifying algebraic fractions) and then reviewed the previous three lessons. We'll continue with the current plan for another week or two and then reevaluate. She seemed to get the concepts once we reviewed them. She was able to correctly solve all of the problems. We'll review some more next week and see if she has been able to retain the information. Overall, she worked really hard and did a great job!"
"We covered some simple separable differential equation problems. Some required integration using the substitution method. These were problems from the test book. We then did a couple of motion problems involving movement direction, and stationary time instants/intervals. We then calculated net displacement, resulting position and distance traveled. We used the graphing calculator to understand and interpret motion graphically."
"The student and I worked on a review assignment in preparation for his test this week over Integration and Differentiation of Logarithms, Exponentials, and Inverse Trig functions. He did very well with the memorizing of formulas. We only needed to talk about choosing the best method for a new problem."
"We discussed the student's progress in Math. We also studied monomials and polynomials. We then learned how to find the product and quotient of each by using the distributive property and combining like terms. We completed several practice problems. The student understood the concepts well, but made minor math mistakes, usually involving positive/negative signs and variables. We will continue to address this in future sessions. In addition, we came up with goals in terms of answering questions correctly. Then, we created a scoring system that rewarded correct answers and penalized wrong answers. He handled the scoring well and exceeded his goal for correct answers."
"We went over circles and how to draw them using only the origin and h,k values. Additionally, we used the equation of a circle to find the center and size of the circles."
"I helped the student with understanding and practice on inequalities and how to use greater than, less than, greater/less than or equal to signs and how to interpret inequality number lines. She also practiced the algebraic manipulation of inequalities and possible answers that make the statements correct."
