Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Created a final practice test covering topics ranging from factoring, FOIL, the distributive property, PEMDAS, simplification, combining like terms, and finding the greatest common factor. We also worked on a timeline for history class."
"Reviewed Inverse functions, composition of functions, operations of functions and factoring polynomials"
"Topics Covered: - Right, Left, and Midpoint approximations of curves - Trapezoid Rule - Graphing functions and approximating the area under the curve. Progress Achieved: -Covered two and a half sections (5.1, 5.2, review sheets) - Strengthened understanding of approximation rules - Introduced learning/teaching styles"
"The student and I went over her last quiz, examined problems that were counted off, and corrected them. We examined more carefully the algebra needed when finding holes, vertical and horizontal asymptotes, and graphing the system. We detailed what the next quiz will cover, and made up a list of problems for extra study that included different ways to factor polynomials. We then went over her current homework assignment on polynomial division. Most of her mistakes were minor errors that are easily avoidable. She noticed and corrected the mistakes on her own, and I feel confident that with a little extra practice, these will be reduced. Her next quiz is on Friday, and she is feeling confident."
"We saw multiplication process, equations and problem solving strategies, we read some problems and analyzed the information in order to choose our best option in solving our problems. We also practiced the balance method for solving equations, and I left him 3 word problems to solve."
"We covered word problems with a few odds and ends. These included mixture problems, basic word problems and rate problems. The student has the most difficulty with the setup of the problems. She is really close most of the time though, so I think once it clicks she'll be fine. We covered setting up word problems with tables as an organizational aid. She has homework to work on."
