Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We explored the use of probability in different context and we reviewed homework problems. The student, in general, has a pretty good grasp of the concepts covered. He primarily wanted to use the session to review his work. The session went well!"
"The student's class has been covering Logarithms and has expanded into complete logarithmic expressions and functions. He understands the core concepts of logarithms very well, so we worked on how to approach whole functions. Outlining the 3 basic rules of logarithmic functions seemed to help, and practicing using the change of base formula also seems to help. I am trying to incorporate an online supplemental instruction site for him as well."
"Today we worked on different types of data analysis. This included measures of central tendency, MAD, variance, and standard deviation. We went over definitions and did sample problems with different data sets. We also talked about test-taking strategies for class. Her teacher expects a quick pace along with conceptual understanding/procedural fluency, so we will continue to address this moving forward."
"Today we continued with uniform convergence. I had the student review his notes first so that he can remind himself of concepts involved. I then showed him the connection between pointwise convergence and uniform convergence and how one can be used to prove the other. I presented a couple of examples and showed him the direct application step by step. I then had the student try out a couple of questions on his own. Overall he did great!"
"Today, the student and I practiced non-calculator multiple choice questions in preparation for her in class math test tomorrow. She did very well tonight. She knew how to start almost every problem and was able to explain why she was solving the problem the way she was. She still occasionally struggles conceptually with word problems that don't explicitly ask for a derivative or an integral, but with a little coaxing, she is able to get back on track."
"The student and I worked on conics today in preparation for his quiz on Friday. He expressed a great confidence in the material."
