Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I went over improper integrals covering infinite intervals and discontinuous integrals. We tackled example problems that targeted all the different variations of said topics. We agreed to take on implicit differentiation and trigonometric integration next week. In addition, over the next couple of weeks, we will be working on past AP Calc tests and practice questions to prepare for the test in May."
"We started this session by working on the addition and subtraction of fractions. We reviewed multiplying fractions and converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers as well. He is very good with adding and subtracting fractions, and can do them quickly. We talked some more about being careful and thorough and double checking along the way, and how that can actually make things easier and quicker. We then studied a bit of science (acids and bases) and spelling/vocab. Overall, student seems to be more focused, confident, and careful."
"Student and I logged onto the math website, and worked on various parts of fractions: adding improper fraction, simplifying fractions, converting fractions to decimals and multiplying fractions. She seems to like several parts of the math website, this is the most excited I've seen her regarding math. I'll check with her mother to see how she utilized the site after our session."
"The student practiced watching a video less than 5 minutes long and taking notes. It was mostly adding and subtracting. She really enjoyed being a 'researcher.' I think that when she has some control in her lesson, she focuses better. She had also had a great day in school that day."
"The student and I worked today on reading and creating graphs and charts. She has had only passing exposure to coordinate systems, so we spent our time discussing and practicing with the Cartesian Plane. It took a bit of trial and error, along with conversation, before she felt comfortable with the conventions of the system. She took well to it all, as is almost always the case. She was easy to teach and talk to, and she asked many questions that proved instrumental to her learning."
"The student finished her math homework prior to my arrival. We reviewed questions and concepts that she struggled with. I learned that she is missing some number sense understanding of numerical patterns. I told her grandmother that I would obtain some supplemental work on those concepts. It will really help her as she proceeds through algebra. Afterwards, she chose to do some bonus math work to receive extra credit."
