Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is on spring break. She has a bunch of practice AP problems to go over. We spent a bit of time going over some multiple choice, but we spent the majority of our time going over free response. She can do pretty much anything. But she is not using her calculator to its fullest potential. I am trying to show her how to make some of those steps easier/ as well as showing her how to check her work."
"To review the topics we had covered earlier, student A was asked to solve some long division problems. Student B worked on reducing the Fractions to its simplest form."
"The student asked if we could have a short introduction into the next subject, statistics. Of course I said yes, I had some statistics materials handy. I introduced him to what statistics was and why it was useful. We started with the basics, mean, median, mode, etc. He seemed to already know and understand this so we moved on to variance, standard deviation, and the difference between bivariate and univariate data. After doing a few examples he quickly picked it up."
"This session was a last minute review for the student's upcoming math test. We focused on completing the square and ways to solve quadratic equations. We also practiced graphing quadratics."
"The student was covering basic statistics and was not very comfortable with the concept of a correlation coefficient. After our meeting, she felt confident in the concept of a correlation coefficient and how it is an indicator of how well an equation fits a series of data points."
"The student and I worked on limits and functions. We evaluated limits numerically and using graphs, drew graphs from given data, and found limits based on the functions. I explained the difference between average slope/velocity and instantaneous slope/velocity."
