Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the student's recent chemistry quiz involving hydrates. We went over how to determine the percent content of water in a hydrate and how to determine the number of water molecules in a given compound. We then went over the student's recent math test and performed test corrections. The test involved imaginary and complex numbers, as well as quadratic inequalities."
"The student had emailed me this past weekend regarding his performance in school. I decided to assign him practice problems from the quiz sections as well as chapter review problems. For the most part, he worked independently without issue, so I watched closely and provided reminders and tips. We will next be meeting on Friday."
"The student and I met one last time before his final. He actually already took the short answer part, but the essay and multiple choice sections are coming up tomorrow. First we talked through the essay topics, particularly the remainder and factor theorems and the fundamental theorem of algebra. We also discussed a way to write out the process for solving quadratic equations. Then he solved several problems from a practice final I found online. He did quite well on all of the topics, so I think he's ready. Lastly I made up a few problems on series since those didn't come up on the practice final. I had to remind him of the formulas, but now I think he'll be able to solve those problems during the test too."
"Today we focused on reviewing items for the pre-calculus final. We went over various topics such as verifying trigonometric identities, law of sine and cosine, and vectors. In physics we discussed mostly position and velocity versus time graphs."
"Today's session with the student went very well. It was our last session for the year and we worked on getting her prepared for her math exam. We worked on a few statistical problems and then she started working on her physics homework. For physics we worked on the ideal gas equation and conceptual problems involving it."
"The student and I reviewed the current material in his class. Topics covered included trig identities and solving trig equations."
