Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on geometry concepts that I brought in, beginning with different types of quadrilaterals and the difference between perimeter and area. We practiced using algebra to solve for different lengths and widths."
"Today we revised the classwork assignment on variance, standard deviation, z-scores, and probability of the values. We went over each questions they have solved in the class one by one. After that he started working on the homework. After that we have continued with problems to solve z-scores, percent values, and probabilities."
"Concepts we worked on today included finding the surface area of cylinders and cones. Finding the lateral areas of cylinders and cones and applying the formulas to solve the equations. I provided a review page of the formulas with sample problems for each application. The student did a great job today."
"The student and I worked on developing a better understanding of functions, their graphs, transformations, factoring quadratics, and solving problems with a graphing calculator. We went over the general steps on a calculator for how to find intercepts and specific points on a function. We also went over the steps for general factoring. After going over general steps and working on problems out of her book, she was going to go work on her homework and start studying for her upcoming exam."
"This was my first session with the student. We started out with her working through some of her current homework problems on exponential growth and decay. She had a good grasp of the material. We also went over some of her old tests/quizzes. For the remainder of the session we talked about how she studied for some of her more difficult courses, and I was able to give her a few ideas to help her review smaller sections over time."
"We covered null and alternative hypotheses, including how to identify Type I error and Type II error, as well as lessons in testing significance in population mean and proportion. We went over calculator strategies for each of these topics, as well as dialogue on p-values."
