Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over exponents and exponent operations, as well as graphing them. I left the student to review the concepts we covered."
"We covered part of chapter 19 in his textbook that covered confidence intervals. I left him with some instructions to practice a few problems out of his textbook over confidence intervals and to possibly look up a few online lectures over geometric and binomial probability distribution. By the end of this evening's session he was confident enough to solve problems related to confidence intervals on his own and seems to have grasped the concept well."
"We worked on his homework and then reviewed his previous homework to make sure everything was understood well."
"During this session, the student and I worked on math and reading. We completed a math review packet. He needed minor assistance such as reminders while adding and multiplying. We also worked on reading a passage and finding evidence in order to answer a question. Samuel was successful in finding evidence, but needs to be reminded to find specific details and not just indicate the whole sentence."
"The student and I started the day by reviewing some topics from chemistry. I gave her a list of important polyatomic ions. She should work on memorizing these, because they will greatly help with performing word problems. Then I gave her a review problem on mole: gram conversions and percent yield. She got through the majority of the problem without hardship. She seems to have made great progress since our last meeting, and we identified that as a weak spot for her to work on. We will continue to work on this. We spent the rest of the day working on geometry, specifically lateral area and volume. She did excellent work on solving the more general problems, rarely requiring any additional help from me. I suggested she slow down, visualize, and even draw diagrams in order to solve the problems. Breaking down word problems into simpler problems may help her with these."
"This was our second session. We continued reviewing the same type of problems. However, this time it involved more word problems. I provided helpful tips and ways of determining the answers quickly. I made the student start the problem on her own and guided her through the questions. I checked to see where she was having difficulty. She only has a problem knowing where to start. Once she knows where to start, she can do the math and algebra. She understands all the concepts, and just needs some refreshing. I told her to review what we went over today and start on new problems so that next time we meet, we can go over what she could not understand. She is overall a very good student, who wants to learn and understand the materials."
