Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's math final is coming up so we spent the session working on the review packet. This was a comprehension package of everything we've work on this semester."
"During this session, we spent some time working examples illustrating how to use derivatives to analyze a function. Then we worked on a related rates problem. She showed good progress with this material."
"The student did great in today's session. She seems to know the material well. If she continues to study and practice, I know she will do great!"
"During our session we solved a worksheet of equation systems. We discussed a more general form of equation system with 3 variables. We discussed equation systems with no solution at all."
"The student has a math test tomorrow so we went over his practice exam in preparation. This week's topics include combinatorics, permutations, probability, and odds. Today we worked hard to re-learn the fundamentals of why we use certain formulas for some problems. He does a good job of recognizing that he needs to use a certain equation but we worked today to make sure he knew exactly why we were using them. This will hopefully help him understand the importance of why we are doing the things that we do, as opposed to just saying that it's just the letter of the law. I am continuing to ask the student to come to the sessions having already attempted sincerely the problems for his sake of learning."
"This was a great session that went quickly. We kept working through the review workbook he had for his end of course and final. Today, we went over trigonometry and SOHCAHTOA. I taught him what sine, cosine, and tangent were and later when he asked more specifically what those values were, I gave him a slight lesson on the unit circle. Generally, the questions were pretty straightforward, giving him a few sides and asking for sine or cosine and later asking for the angle measurements, using the inverse of those functions. He has an end of course exam on Thursday, so I agreed to come in tomorrow for a session before his exams. I think we agreed for one more week of tutoring before his classes are over."
