Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student her homework, covering the concept of fractions (particularly, determining the size of the fractions-which one is larger/smaller, etc.- as well as equivalent fractions). By the end of our time together, she had a very clear understanding of the content, which is very great to see. Additionally, there was certainly a note of progress, in the form of her getting an A on her most recent math test. (She only missed one question, and she completely knew why she missed it). All this to say, things are going really well with the student and I sincerely look forward to working with her again next week!"
"Today we discussed linear equations in two variables and functions. The student was optimistic and had a positive attitude toward learning the material. We reviewed several of her homework problems and I also created a few to enforce the concepts. She seems to have improved in regards to subject knowledge since the last session, which shows me she is committed to learning the material."
"We reviewed topics from addition/subtraction/multiplication of decimals. division by 2 digit numbers, adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing fractions. The student was doing very well. We also went over the some pre-algebra and business terms."
"We covered L'Hopital's rule and worked through many examples. We reviewed the definition of limits. We talked about the difference between a limit and a one-sided limit. We also covered which forms are indeterminate and which ones aren't. The sessions have been going well, every time we just work through some of the more difficult problems and polish off some of the harder concepts."
"Today we reviewed geometry concepts like volume and surface area and lateral area for the student's upcoming exam. She had a positive attitude throughout the session and knew which concepts she needed to focus on based on her in-class review. We went through every problem and starred problems that she needed extra review on. At the end I gave her similar problems to her star ones for her to work on her own without my guidance to see if she understood the material."
"We went over exponential graphs. We worked on drawing them as well as defining the asymptotes, domain and range of each function. We also went over problems in chemistry regarding energy of reactions."
"We went over simplifying radicals and solving radical equations. We did problems with distributing and rationalizing the denominator. She was able to solve each type of problem at the end of the session."
"Today's session covered reading vocabulary. The student had to identify new words with the correct definition. He did a great job with reading vocabulary. We also worked on math concepts by adding four digits numbers with regrouping."
"I pulled up the unit on angles in the math book and we worked on intro to geometry. We worked on definitions, how to figure the measure of angles, area of triangle, rectangle, and square."
"We continued the review for the student's sectional exam coming up in the first week of March. She's doing very well. We also reviewed the "chain rule.""
"This session we focused mostly on multi-step word problems. We tried a different approach to the problems this time: diagramming out each step of the problem. This seemed to help the student understand the problem better."
"In this session, we working on multiplying decimals to find the volume of rectangular prism. The student understands the concept however sometimes he makes small mistakes in the calculation process. By going back and checking his work to see if he has used place holders, the student is able to increase his level of accuracy."
