Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on some problems from a practice exam. We looked at problems involving digit placement as well as identifying word problems with equations and expressions. We worked on comparison of fraction values as well as identifying equivalent fractions. We also worked on multiplying two digit numbers by both two digit and three digit numbers."
"In this session with the student, we got him ready for his test on Thursday. he is doing well with linear combinations and is going to rock his test. We also looked at his draft for physics and went over the revisions that his teacher recommended. His teacher is very specific about what he wants so I think the student will get a good grade on this if he addresses the comments."
"For each problem, we discussed how to determine which integration technique to use. We reviewed how to do integration by parts, u-sub, and partial fraction decomposition. Working out each step helped her understand how to do the problems better."
"We covered exercises in the textbook on the subject of functions, graphs, and quadratics. She appeared to pick up how to work out most of the problems after being shown some examples. I turned wordy explanations into simpler tips when possible."
"We reviewed algebraic functions. The student had trouble relating equations of functions with their respective graphs. I showed her a sheet containing the parent functions and their graphs. I went into detail about the connections between the two and practiced with her identifying types of functions. We then reviewed the definitions and explanations of domain/range. We finished the session by going over matrix multiplication and addition."
"The student has a test coming up on Tuesday. During this session we worked on the study guide given by his teacher for the chapter 2 test. It included polynomial functions, their graphs, behaviors, zeroes, etc. We also revisited long division and synthetic division. He seemed to have a good grasp on the material. He needed a refresher on a few aspects. He is to finish the study guide on his own and we will have one final review on Monday night before the exam on Tuesday."
