Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on 5th grade level math problems, such as pre-algebra concepts, decimals, volumes, and measurements, using word problems. We worked on reading passages from the reading test that I sent him at the beginning of our sessions. His mother showed me his progress report from just before I started with him and he has improved."
"The student received his last exam and we reviewed it to make sure he understood everything. We also did a online practice quiz that involved word problems and visual spacing questions about multiplying fractions. Overall the session was successful and he really understands the material."
"On this first tutoring session, this student and I had a good start. We went through problems from the AP Calculus AB test booklet. The problems we looked into covered a wide range of topics. These topics include limits, finding derivatives to find the equation tangent to the original function, and evaluating integrals. Some areas that she needed a refresher on was using the product rule and quotient rule when taking derivatives, finding the derivatives of exponential functions, and various ways to take the limit of functions. It was a fun session and I'm confident that things between me and this student will go well!"
"The students are looking for some review assistance for their upcoming calculus 2 exam. This session was characterized primarily with review of Riemann sums, unit circles, trigonometry, general calculus applications, review of mass density curves, probability density curves, u-substitution, and some trigonometric substitution. We spent this time reviewing some of the concepts behind sums and iterated derivatives, as well as some time reviewing basic applications of the fundamental theorem of calculus. Looking forward to seeing this group again!"
"I worked with the student on converting mixed numbers to improper fractions and vice-versa, as well as on adding mixed numbers. I had him fill in a times table grid so that he could complete his homework in a more timely manner. After I showed him how to convert a mixed number to an improper fraction he was much more comfortable with these problems!"
"The student and I reviewed his homework: counting money, addition and subtraction, and telling time. He is doing very well with money, which I think helps boost his confidence. We then worked on reflex for a while, and I am astounded by his progress. He is starting to answer subtraction problems by remembering what the right answer is instead of counting. So much progress!"
