Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed a homework assignment focused on calculating confidence intervals. The student appeared to have little difficulty with the assignment especially as it related to the interpretation of the confidence interval. The problem that challenged the student the most was related to the use of the correct formulas and the steps needed to enter into her graphing calculator. As the session went on she seemed more comfortable in using the calculator to calculate the CI. In general, the student has done a much better job of preparing for our sessions."
"The student's class is preparing for standardized testing so the student didn't have homework. We reviewed math standards such as linear equations, percents and ratios, geometry concepts of prisms, algebra/equation word problems, and PEMDAS. The student did a great job!"
"This week we reviewed the student's calculus work. At the moment they are preparing for the upcoming AP exam, so we spent our time looking over some of her previous practice problems, and we worked out some new ones as well, both multiple choice and free response."
"The student and I worked on his homework. He required additional instruction. He was completing the problems independently by the end of our session. He had three problems remaining and was instructed to finish them on his own. He was great as always."
"Yesterday, I met with the student to work on Calc BC. Her AP exam is in 2 short weeks! Her class has now finished the material on series and convergence. I highly recommend working through the chapter review and getting familiar with which methods exist, as well as how to apply them. It will also be good to study some of the vocabulary (like the term's convergence, absolute convergence, conditional convergence, sequence, series, geometric sequence, p-series, harmonic series). I'm going to prep some work for next week's session so we can get a strong review in before the AP exam."
"During this session, we worked on how to calculate percents. At first the student seemed unsure of her ability to grasp the concepts, but with some practice she seemed to get more confident. She was able to calculate percent increase and decrease. Then we worked on figuring how much a specific percent of any number is. For example, 15 % of $20. By the end of the time, she was to do these calculations fairly easily and was amazed how easy it can be."
