Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over trapezoidal sums, slope fields, solving differential equations, and finding antiderivatives through u-substitution. The student had a test the next day he was preparing for. After going through the lessons and practice problems, he felt much more confident about his test."
"During this session, we went over the review worksheets for Chapter 10 in preparation for the exam tomorrow. We then worked on the Chapter self assessment. The student had a decent grasp on the material and just needed a little more practice and polishing. I would encourage him to continue to work on the problems that he had questions about with a bit more for additional practice, in particular, the real world application and word problems."
"We went over the graphing of functions written as "1/x" The student, at first, had trouble with knowing how to solve for the horizontal asymptote, but after we worked through a few more examples she was able to solve for it without any difficulty."
"For our first session, we did some test review for the student's second exam tomorrow. The material focused on interest and compounded growth rates, as well as maximums and minimums of quadratic functions. She seems to have a solid grasp on the material, and she is tending towards memorizing equations and problem types rather than attempting to understand the principles behind the equations. She seems to be doing well so far. We'll likely meet again before her comprehensive final."
"Today we worked on equivalent fractions and relating it to the double number line method the student's teacher taught in class. Along with equivalent fractions we also worked on comparing fractions. The student was able to compare two fractions with different numerators and denominators and tell which is greater or less. We also discussed assessment standard 4.NF Number and Operations-Fractions, and extend understanding of fractions equivalence and ordering."
"During our time together, the student and I worked hard at completing her homework, consisting of adding and subtracting fractions, and figuring out the common denominator in the process. After we completed her homework, we then completed a plethora of practice problems, consisting of both numerical and word problems, assessing her understanding of adding and subtracting fractions. Although there were just minor areas to iron out, by the end of the session, she had a complete understanding of how to add and subtract fractions, so I look forward to hearing about her successes on any future assessments of the material."
