Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I completed a review of 3 lessons tonight, covering geometric sequences, sums of geometric sequences, and volume/density of 3D shapes. She was pretty confused by the nomenclature and notation on the sequences when we started, but she got used to it pretty fast and was able to complete her assignments independently and correctly. She also picked up quickly on the volume and density problems."
"During this session, textbook homework covering chain-rule antiderivatives and indefinite integrals was reviewed in preparation for the upcoming final test. Additionally, a note sheet was created to assist in the open-note test."
"The student is reviewing material for her final, so we reviewed some topics from Chapter 4, which included radian vs. degree measures, the unit circle, right triangle trigonometry, and graphs of sine and cosine. Most of the material came back to her, but she is missing foundations in graphing the trigonometric functions. She will also need to relearn the unit circle and know it by memory. We will continue to work on this next session."
"Yesterday the student and I worked on a mix of chemistry and PreCalc as usual. For chemistry, we worked on a few thermodynamic problems and reviewed some vocabulary in preparation for his exam today. He seemed pretty confident about the numerical problems and had a couple questions about some of the more conceptual material, but overall he seems to have a good grasp of these few chapters. For PreCalc we continued working with exponential functions, especially properties of exponential growth/ decay and limited growth problems."
"Good session with the student! We reviewed some simple statistics from the first Stats section in her PreCalc class. We did a review of the problem set, then I went on to discuss and demonstrate some topics from the upcoming sections. We worked a little ahead of the class. This seemed to work for vectors - she scored 100% on her quiz."
"The student and I met today and continued with building skills with trig. She told me that she is doing a little better. We are working on getting her skills up."
