Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over free response questions. We specifically focused on Taylor series and problems on convergence and divergence. We made a plan for the next month in order to prepare for her Calc test in the beginning of April. She will be taking practice AP tests on her own time and reviewing which problems are incorrect, and then retaking the test as well so we can focus on any problems she may have difficulty with."
"Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with the student and her father to discuss how to approach the tutoring sessions and how to best benefit the student in her coursework. We discussed the layout of her course and the topics she previously covered, as well as what concepts she may be covering moving forward. She has a lot of potential as a student, and I hope to not only reinforce her understanding of pre-algebra concepts, but to teach her some lifelong learning skills, and how to utilize other resources around her in order to help her grow as a student."
"Today we went over volumes of a cone and the volumes of spheres. We also took it a step further by figuring out the radius or height of an object when only knowing the volume. Also, I am happy to report that he earned an 87% on his last test, which is a great improvement over his previous scores. We are starting to see some great growth from the time we started until now."
"Today the student was working on his math worksheet. The assignment involved addition and conversion of fractions. It seemed that he remembered the concepts from our previous lessons. As a result he did a very good job on the assignment and needed little if any help."
"I helped the student understand and fix her mistakes on a recent math test. She will receive points for turning in test corrections, and it seemed that some concepts she was starting to understand. The test covered quadratic equations and we reviewed the concepts of finding the axis of symmetry, the vertex, equation roots, y-intercept and solving by factoring the equation. She did well. Then we reviewed some basic concepts for an upcoming placement test, including geometry formulas, and some basic algebra equations."
"She had no math homework, so we worked on an English assignment, a response to literature for the play "Romeo and Juliet". We talked out the theme of her paper and began to discuss the structure of her paper. Then as she wrote I would proof her paper and we would discuss the elements of her next paragraph."
