Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on her math and spelling homework this session. In math, we primarily focused on her math facts. She has progressed to subtraction. We worked on her "minus 2" facts, and she had no problems. She was easily able to work through the subtraction problems. We then practiced her spelling multiple times, and she improved each time. She did a great job focusing and working hard for the full hour."
"We covered slope fields, integration techniques in more depth, and ln and e rules. The student had a good attitude towards the material. I told him the material I would like him to look over before his test - chain rule, u-sub and slope fields, as well as memorization of various basic integrals such as sec^2 (x). I am confident he will do well on his upcoming test."
"We went over a miscellaneous math assignment that included SAT topics, algebraic manipulations, and trigonometry. The student only had difficulty with two questions out of 15, but he felt pretty good about the entire assignment overall. I did not have to implement any specific strategies given that he was on point for most of the questions. He just needed minor guidance. On another note, he said he scored a 90/100 on his physics test for which I had previously tutored him for."
"We continued to work on trigonometric functions and graphing trigonometric functions and their transformations. We looked at the equation y=Atrigfunc(Bx-C)+D and identified how each coefficient transforms/translates the graph of inverse trigonometric functions."
"Because the student was scheduled to take her math test after our session, we mostly reviewed concepts that would be covered on the test. We covered slope-intercept form, and how to write equations in slope-intercept form. We also reviewed how to graph lines when given a slope and an intercept, or no direction at all and simply using a table. She seems prepared to take her exam."
"We covered some textbook problems on rectilinear motion, related rates, and tangent line approximations. The student understood part of each of these topics. I had her explain the extent of her understanding to me, and then I helped fill in the gaps. She came prepared with a specific set of questions to go over. She is very enthusiastic and I can tell that she wants to understand the material."
