Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We prepared for the student's quiz/ test he has tomorrow covering several trig concepts. We went over a previous class assignment first which he was able to successfully re-complete. We were also able to do some a lot of additional word problems. It was also great to know from our last session he has really mastered the construction of the unit circle."
"The student and I went over logarithmic functions and their properties. At first, these problems are quite challenging as you wrap your head around what logarithms mean. I went over step by step approaches to find the solutions of different problems. As she continues practicing some more, she should be able to fully understand how to work with logarithms."
"We briefly covered synthetic division for math. Going to chemistry, we covered the notation of isotopes and ions, and how to calculate the number of neutrons and electrons. We also covered scientific notation and significant figures, and how to make calculations based on those rules. We will cover dimensional analysis on Wednesday."
"Tonight, the student and I reviewed for her upcoming pre-calculus test. She had no trouble recalling the binomial theorem, Pascal's triangle, or most of the permutation and combination material, but she did need some help remembering how to find conditional and binomial probability."
"Student A and I met to discuss her upcoming test in pre-calculus. We spent our time reviewing the law of sines and methods of finding the area under the curve. Her confidence appeared to increase over her session. Student B and I worked together on AP Human Geography. He brought an example of a free-response question. We discussed study skills for geography, including how to use the internet to quickly find basic definitions and writing good definition paragraphs. He also asked about how to go about making a concept map for culture."
"We began the session by looking at the material currently being covered. The student is working on basic trig and converting between degrees and radians. We had a couple of questions regarding length of arcs with given angles. While solving the arc length equation, it was clear that he has some serious gaps in his algebra knowledge, and we will absolutely have to revisit that next session. I believe next session, we will focus on algebra."
