Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered matrix and I explained what is matrix dimensions and how we can multiply them, then she had chemistry post lab and homework we went through them and I explained the significant digits and % of error."
"Reviewed material for an exam: linear models from scatter plot data or tabulated data, direct variation models from tabulated data, evaluation value of f(x) at different x values; identification of functions from ordered pairs or from plots or from domain-range diagrams, absolute value graphing."
"The students mother contacted me around 4:00 pm, that the student needed assistance with his homework tonight. I was able to go by there for roughly 45 minutes, and we were able to complete the assignment in that time. He was having a little difficulty with absolute value inequalities. I made a note to be sure and review this with him at our next session, because the steps can be a bit confusing."
"The student wanted to go over his algebra 2 homework set which covered solving equations with 3 variables using the elimination method and substitution method. Each question had 3 separate equations to work with so there were a lot of moving parts to find the final answer for each individual question. The student understood all of the concepts very well and was able to tackle each question correctly. His biggest (and really only real) mistake that he kept making was with the number signs. On each question, he forgot to move negative sign down or wouldn't move it correctly to the other side of the equal sign. I was checking his math as he went through it and was able to point out the mistakes as they happened, but he would have gotten it wrong if he didn't go back and check it himself. He is just trying to rush through the questions, and while he does know what he is doing conceptually, he needs to stay focused on properly manipulating the numbers."
"I worked primarily with the student during this appointment. I taught her the traditional way of multiplying double- and triple-digit numbers and practiced with her until she could do the problems on her own. I gave her problems to do for homework, and asked that she pay close attention to dropping the zeroes in the problems. The student and I also went through her math sheet for homework, which dealt with decimal placement. The student had a little trouble figuring out what direction the decimal would move in during division, so we went over her problems carefully and I assigned her a week's worth of practice problems to make sure she understands the concept."
"The student and I continued reviewing the rules of integration for rational, exponential, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and logarithmic functions."
