"Exponential functions, log functions. Properties of log and exponential functions. Solving equations with log and exponential functions. Graphing log and exponential functions. Word problems. Four sections of the text book were covered."
"The student and I worked through her previous science exams, reviewing all the key concepts, focusing on areas she struggled with in the past. I recommended making flash cards for key vocabulary. Next we discussed how to best prepare for her AP world history exam."
"The student has her chemistry final this Thursday. She wanted to go over her past exams to do a comprehensive review for the final. She wanted to focus on the questions she got wrong. We covered net ionic equations, percent yield, molarity, dimensional analysis, and electron configuration."
"We worked through the end of chapter prep test in preparation for her chapter test tomorrow. She continued to struggle somewhat with the algebraic concepts, but I think we made some ground."
"Reviewed Practice Test #5. The student has been consistently scoring on the math section and has improved drastically on the writing section. He is a conscientious student and is applying all the concepts and strategies I've taught him over the last 2 months. He still needs to learn some more vocabulary words and practice his essay writing, but he's making great progress."
"We started with Algebra and checked long division problems. The student is confident with the process. Next we checked the Unit 1 test. We finished with French, and discussed why French is a valuable language to study and where French is spoken in the world. We also worked on the numbers 1-10, in French."
"We continued to review for the chapter 4 test, covering irregular -re verbs, forming questions, and the imperative. I left the student with a few topics to review by himself, but he is in good shape for tomorrow."
"The student has her Physics final tomorrow. She came with many well thought out questions, indicating that she has done almost every piece of practice her professor has given her. She is very good at Math and I believe she has really picked up on how Physics works."
"The student has a new study guide. We went over the study guide together, he did okay. Once he has ownership of this vocab, he will be well prepared for his upcoming test."
