Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I worked on calculating areas of shaded regions composed of various shapes. He can practice these types of problems, and we will review strategies to solving these tomorrow during our session."
"What covered multiplication and division of rational expressions and also tackled some word problems related to the topic. I left the student with some extra practice. Also, the session went fantastically well."
"We went over his homework, correcting and completing it. It covered writing functions/expressions and plotting coordinates. He answers questions, performs task, and is respectful."
" We worked on advanced polynomials for his unit test. We will go over the entire semester exam review packet before his semester exam next week."
"We spent the majority of the section tightening up the student's understanding of the unit circle, radians, trigonometric coordinates and inverse trig functions. She did a good job grasping the material in anticipation of her upcoming test."
"We continued with chapter 5 in Trigonometry. I introduced the student to the sum properties of the trigonometric identities and their applications. We covered most of the problems in this textbook with the potential for being on homework or quizzes."
"We went over the foundation behind integrals, including definite integrals, area under the curve and the fundamental theorem of calculus. I went over 12 examples of various difficulty to illustrate the concepts in practice."
"The majority of today's session was spent assisting the student with her homework on equations with fractions. During the last half hour I helped the student understand how to properly name the components of chemical reactions."
"The focus of today's session was on matrices - the definition of size (dimension), and the rules for adding, subtracting and multiplying them. In addition, we started Gauss-Jordan reduction, and we will continue with that topic next time."
"The student and I prepared for her quiz on Friday covering the beginning of Module 4, focusing on exponential and linear functions. We reviewed concepts including arithmetic and geometric sequences and graphing from slope-intercept form."
"The student has a big test on Thursday/Friday. We went over the study guide provided by his teacher. I think that he is in pretty good shape for the test, but I will be making a practice test for him for his next session just to make sure."
"Today we worked on graphing rotations, translations, and reflections. The student did great on these and needed little to no help. We then began lesson 51, which included some review material, and then learned how to handle negative exponents."
