Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was my first session with this student. She wants to work on her exam review packet. After a rather slow start, we learned how to work together effectively. We finished all the problems in units 1 and 2. We will work on unit 3 next Monday. At the end she said she enjoyed the session and felt she got a lot out of it. I talked to her mom at the end and she said that she was pleased as well. If we have time, the student might like some help in French as well."
"The student and I reviewed the common ratio or common difference of a sequence. We expressed the mean of a series in sigma notation and expressed variance and standard deviation in sigma notation. We also found the mean, variance, standard deviation, and mean absolute deviation of a series, as well as combinations and permutations of given subsets. We related Pascal's triangle to polynomial factors."
"The student and I covered graphing and converting different kinds of data into the slope-intercept formula. She did a great job with this material and grew increasingly confident as our session progressed. The only thing that gave her pause was working with fractions and decimals. However, after a bit of review on finding the lowest common denominator and lining up decimals when adding or subtracting, she did well with this material. We also talked about her last test. I suggested that she might review her answers before turning her next test. Overall, she's doing great work, as usual!"
"The student is a very bright child that just needs someone to help him digest problems. He has very strong skills in mathematics. I worked on probability with him and saw lots of improvement by the end of the session."
"I worked with the student to help him prepare for his upcoming final. I went over radicals, exponents, and logarithms with him, working on problems and applications, including compound interest. He has a better understanding of the material."
"The student and I went over L'Hopital's rules and the cases of limits that can be solved with the method. We did a brief overview of the subject followed by practice problems to ensure an understanding of the concepts."
