Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on word problem of linear systems. By the end of the session, he was amazing. We also worked on systems of linear equations and inequalities. We reviewed on sheets that I had brought for him to practice with."
"On Sunday, the student worked on three sections of math: two from chapters and one from a worksheet. These covered special right triangles and how to solve right triangles. She seems to grasp all portions of this process and shows her work very well."
"We went over some problems he had questions on for his test. The involved first and second derivatives, implicit differentiation, optimization, critical points of absolute value functions, etc. The student gets the material very quickly."
"Today we worked on simplifying expressions using factoring. We dealt with multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction of expressions. We focused on factoring to simplifying and learned to recognize the difference of perfect squares. We also spent time working with direct and inverse variation. The student seems to be understanding factoring better and better each session. He also seemed to have a good grasp on the direct and inverse variation problems."
"We covered three topics: quadratic inequalities, solving equations using logarithms, and arithmetic sequences. The student did very well with all three topics, and we covered a lot of ground. I gave her some ways to do those problems different from her teacher and gave her other ways to look at these problems. She responded very well to these methods and walked away from the lesson knowing how to do what we practiced. We will meet with each other again next Friday."
"Today I helped the student with his homework in math. It was about statistical studies and whether the design was valid or not, and then applying the statistics to the general population. He generally understood it; I just pointed out some issues he might not have thought of before. After, we went over a test he had done poorly on, and I explained some of the answers he didn't understand. We then reviewed line plots and he practiced with 3 different data sets. To finish, he used one of the sets of data to do a stem and leaf plot and a box and whiskers and to find the mean average deviation."
