Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had our first meeting today for his Algebra 2 class. He is currently going over solving single variable equations that contain variables in fractions. We went over the steps that must be taken to solve the equations and then worked on a number of practice problems from his textbook. At first we worked slowly as he mixed up some of the steps, but as we went over more problems he got a better grasp of the topic. We worked through most of his homework and will continue to practice these types of problems in our subsequent meetings."
"Algebra 2: Logarithmic expansion based on log properties Physics: Chapter 25 - Wave and Vibration Properties: parts of wave, frequency, period, Doppler effect"
"The student and I began chapter 6, differential equations, and slope fields. She grasps the steps very easily and confidently. She will finish the homework and begin the next one to have questions for me next session."
"We reviewed measurement of angles and incorporation into fractions. The student struggled with word problems on her last exam so we will take the last 10-15 minutes of each future session to focus on these types of questions."
"The student did not have any homework in math yesterday, so we opted instead to work through some of the problems he was having difficulty with in his test practice book. He had already completed many of the problems in the book, but had circled the ones he had trouble with so that he and I could go over them together. He is taking his test at the end of April and wants to be as prepared as possible. Many of the questions he had were on a small step in the problem, and once he was made aware of how to do this step, he was able to finish the problem by himself. At one point he made a small calculation error. He calmly told himself he needed to get his head in the game and he successfully finished the problem."
"We have been working ahead, putting into practice the Pythagorean theorem, recognizing the Pythagorean triples and multiples of triples. He worked problems that involved recognizing right triangles in three dimensional solids like a cone or a pyramid, as well as solving for missing dimensions using known information and then using information given or found to solve for the lateral surface area."
