Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered both Vector Analysis and Mathematics proofs. The vector analysis topics primarily focused on line integrals and working with different identities (using things such as divergence, curl, etc.). The mathematics proofs were largely based on working with sets. He was introduced to the concepts of open sets, closed sets, and simply connected sets. We firstly went through these to ensure they were clear then talked about some of the problems using them. Once he had seen the definitions he didn't have much trouble working with the problems. The Vector Analysis went a similar way. The identity work was a little trickier for him, as he has some trouble when there isn't much of a systematic approach for problems, but the line integrals over fields were no issue at all. As soon as we went through the process for approaching those problems he was able to complete them with relative ease."
"The student and I worked on problems for her logic class. We went over the equivalencies and common approaches to solve problems. We went over several types of examples in anticipation of her quiz and test coming up."
"The student completed 2 two-digit multiplication problems with errors. I gave him some simple division facts and he multiplied instead of divided. I reviewed some classwork on solving equations. I will return to just practicing some basic skills with whole numbers, decimals and fractions."
"We went over the student's checkbook assignment. The assignment involved entering a series of payments and deposits in a checkbook in order to determine the final balance of an account. I checked the student's work separately afterwards and found that she had calculated the correct balance. We then moved on to science, where we researched a particular type of bacteria for her upcoming report on bad bacteria and pasteurization. We then reviewed facts on bacteria in order to prepare her for her upcoming test."
"We worked on fractions-how to divide them, specifically. We discussed positive and negative numbers and their effects on fractions. We also worked on life cycles in her science homework and got her Language Arts ready for a binder check tomorrow."
"We covered a diverse number of topics, including graphs, and recapping algebra II. The student struggled against questions that require critical thinking. She was very open to learning the material, and I provided her some strategies on answering questions, especially substitution as a last-resort."
