Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered graphing inequalities and geometry concepts, particularly the Pythagorean Theorem. I gave her a simple trick for knowing which side of the line should be shaded when given a linear inequality. She had two quizzes and scored better than the previous quiz. I gave her practice problems on current concepts and reviewed how to determine x and y intercepts. She felt confident with the material covered."
"We covered rates and proportions. The student did very well on everything today. He was as positive as always. I had him do a little bit more independent work, and I had him do it mentally to see how quickly he could do it and to get him more confident in his ability to do these problems. He did very well on material that's harder than what he does in class, so I think he really understands it."
"We went over the complex analysis version of the angle addition formulas for cosine and sine. We then generated the double angle formulas before using two variations from cosine to create the half angle formulas. At the end, we used the data we knew to verify the consistency of the formulas before calculating new results for 15 and 22.5 degrees."
"During this session, we reviewed all of the student's work in preparation for an upcoming exam. He was more comfortable and competent working with fractions and variables than in previous sessions. We also discussed the importance of double-checking one's work to avoid simple errors. As always, he had a positive attitude toward learning and exploring the material, and we got a lot of review done during our session."
"Today's session, we worked on solving word problems by creating a linear function to represent them. The student understood these problems well. We also worked on some practice worksheets I brought with me. He did well on those problems."
"We got straight to work today. The student is starting a new statistics class, and she had several questions. We went over some basic ways of classifying data and presenting it. These included ogives, pie charts, and bar graphs. We also spent some time critically analyzing how data is presented, specifically how presentation can manipulate the interpretation of data."
