Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered two sections in the logic book, in which he got 7 out of 10 questions correct, and interpreting data and graphs, on which he got 10 out of 10 questions correct. We stopped just short of functions, which I hope we'll do next time."
"The student and I went over some problems from the chapter 6 review to begin prepping for her test on chapters 6-9. We talked about the cheat sheet she made and any modifications/additions she should make before the test."
"We were able to address several of the more challenging questions from the latest problem set using information and study guides obtained from the web and from his text. The student has a solid grasp of the underlying concepts and needs to spend his study time reviewing the text and his notes. I also provided him with a set of practice problems for review, since he stated that any supplemental materials are very useful. These came from a previous college course in genetics. While the topics covered over the last three sessions are difficult concepts for a college-level Biology course, I am eager to learn how he performs on the upcoming exam."
"Today the student and I started reviewing for his final exam in math. He did review the first 2 sections of chapter 2 but was still foggy on the concepts, so we talked about better ways to study math (actively doing practice problems shown in the book) then we went over those sections together. He picked up sections 2.1 - 2.4 extremely well! Now his 'homework' is to go over 2.5 tomorrow and 2.6 Wednesday so that we can start on 2.7 on Thursday including some mixed practice from 2.5 and 2.6."
"We had a good first session. We worked on absolute-value inequalities, point-slope forms, slope-intercept forms, standard forms, and converting among them. I am confident in the student's ability, and these sessions should run smoothly."
"In this session, the student finished his study guide on factor markets. We also discussed concepts in the factor markets chapter of the book, including bilateral monopoly and monopsony. We spent the second half of our session covering questions related to a new handout from his professor on perfect competition. We also discussed strategies for answering questions when the phrasing is unclear."
