Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student was ready to go and we blasted through all of the homework for Section 1.3 and most of 1.4. Of note were two sets of problems that we solved with Venn Diagrams before proving the logic "algebraically." He made some progress versus his notes, and once his Statistics test is out of the way he (hopefully) will dedicate more time to catching up on things for Mathematical Structures."
"We covered how to determine domain and range of given functions graphically. We also covered how to write in interval notation depending on the inequality or equal sign given. The student had a positive attitude towards the subject. I gave her many different strategies, and I told her what worksheets she has that she should focus on for the upcoming test. If she studies hard and understands the strategies I taught her, she will get her A."
"The student and I worked through chapter 4 of his PSAT book covering a variety of topics. We covered exponents, ratios, rational expressions and equations, and word problems concerning these topics. We then completed some practice problems, and I believe we are finished with the Math section of his PSAT book. For his next session, we will be reviewing all topics and making sure he is ready for his PSAT test."
"The student had his chapter review for homework just before his test tomorrow. We worked on this, and I noticed that some of the key concepts that will no doubt be on his test were neglected in this review. So I wrote down these ideas and we spent an extra bit of time making sure he understood these and when to use them. I am hoping he makes a breakthrough on this test and does as well as he is capable of."
"The student was learning the materials in a new chapter this week, and we went over problems on finding the area between curves. I explained the differences between representing areas with respect to x and y, and how the areas can be calculated using integrals. We also discussed some more challenging problems, where we need to separate the domain to multiple parts in order to calculate the area. She had a good understanding on the topic. I think she can solve the problems even faster by reviewing the algebra properties and things she learned in previous math courses."
"The student and I worked on analyzing a scholarly publication she found online as part of an assignment for class. It turned out to be a pretty complicated statistical method used for the article, but we were able to work through it and understand the basics of how the researchers did the analysis. We also discussed how to design the research question for her project and then how to analyze the data."
