Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered examples involving hypothesis testing using sample mean distributions and estimating sample mean distribution standard deviation from the sample standard deviation and then used this to construct a test statistic. We also covered an example of population proportion estimates and associated uncertainty to conclude that a marketing firm was incapable of conducting a poll to correctly estimate a known population proportion of 0.6. The student seemed to track the material well as we went."
"In our session we reviewed linear differential equations again. Then we went back to cover topics from the rest of the semester. We spent time dealing with methods of integration, both u-substitution and by parts. We ended with trigonometric integrals that involved one or two levels of substitution and the right triangle 'x=trig function' substitutions let you create. The student's midterm is Wednesday and he wants to meet one more time before then. Until then, I asked that he spend time on the trig integrals and do a couple by-parts integrals."
"The student has been doing much better in Math. She has been earning grades in the low 80's since tutoring began. Completed more work on solving equations by elimination and substitution. Also, reviewed for her History exam."
"Today we went over hyperbolas for the most part. We covered how to graph them, how to express them as an equation, and how to go from equation to graph and vice versa. So far the student is doing a great job; he's very smart and seem to truly understand all the steps and ideas involved. He has enough practice to go over on his own."
"Today we discussed the student's math homework assignment, solving one and two step problems involving graphs. We also reviewed strategies when adding and subtracting within 1,000."
"The student and I reviewed solving simple algebraic equations. She does a great job of showing her work, and she needs to spend a little more time reviewing the question and planning how to start. She needs to practice working with fractions a little more as well."
