Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"He started his first day at school from home schooling this past Tuesday. So we went over the material he had for the first week in his math class. We went over how to find tips/tax, discount, and commission using percentages. It went very well."
"The student and I had an excellent session. After taking an exam last week and then another this week, we can clearly see where he needs some reinforcement. We will work on the areas where he needs the reinforcement and continue to do practice tests."
"The student and I looked at her Algebra II homework. We did the majority of her homework problems. Her homework covered exponential functions and logarithmic functions."
"Today the student and I continued working on reviewing his packet, which involved geometry. Although it took him a while to complete some of the problems, he understands the logic behind them. Before his test (if he has one), he will have to review his formulas, especially the formula for finding the area of a triangle. He told me that he will try to complete some of the problems on his own because we might not get through the whole packet together. He used to be very unwilling to do math on his own, so the fact that he suggested it shows that he has gained confidence and motivation in math."
"We covered geometric series and binomial expansion. I covered how to do a binomial expansion (including finding coefficients and term exponents) and the formulas necessary to calculate infinite and finite sums for geometric series. By the end of our session, he seemed to be able to use the formulas and techniques to successfully complete the problems."
"During this session, various topics including trig, inverses, logarithms and piece-wise functions were reviewed for the upcoming final by reviewing a study guide."
