Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight we prepared for the student's exam tomorrow. We went through her study guide, going over binomial and normal problems. We concentrated on recognizing problem types, finding proportions when they are not explicitly stated, and testing for normality. She added hints for herself in her notes to aid her study."
"Went over conditions for ANOVA and calculating F statistics/sum of squares. The student is able to refer to her previous notes and had little trouble going over the material."
"We went over the final chapters in the student's textbook. Topics we covered were Chi Squared goodness of fit tests and Chi Squared dependency tests. We will begin preparing for the final exam next week."
"Powers of nth roots, properties of exponents and radicals, solving radical equations, and simplifying radicals and exponent equations. Combining all the different properties to do proper algebra."
"During the session, we covered the new material that have been introduced in the student's math class concerning the domain of equations. The student was very familiar with the material, and we reviewed the concepts and her homework during the session. Since she had a vocab test the next day in her English class, I went over the words with her."
"Tonight we started with logarithmic functions. The student said that they started this topic today after having covered exponential functions. We discussed logs of different bases and how to perform operations with logs. He had some questions about how to enter the expressions into his calculator. I helped him understand the mechanics of what he was doing to determine if he needed to use his calculator and also helped him with how to enter the information as he said his teacher sometimes wanted students to do problems using the calculator. I also provided him with a reference website for using a TI-83. He and I also reviewed for a quiz that he is having tomorrow. We went over compositions and inverse functions. We reviewed the concept of a domain to reinforce why that step is important in finding an inverse. He and I also discussed what he hopes to get out of tutoring and what his biggest struggles in math have been this year."
