Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Met with the student. She's in to matrices now. She was really glad I had shown her some of the calculator uses for matrices. We were working on Echelon form and Row Echelon form to solve for variables in a system. Some of the problems were rather difficult but we were able to refocus on the next."
"We wrote summaries and completed comprehension questions for chapters 5-7 in "No Talking." We also read chapter 7 of "No Talking" together. The student is to read chapters 8-11 before we meet again on Monday."
"The student and I met from 5-6:40 for our first session. We briefly discussed how he is doing in the class before beginning work on similar figures. We looked over his quiz to help prepare him for his exam on Friday. He is a very bright kid and picks up on things quickly. We also covered some basics for proofs that he would need to remember throughout this course as well as more advanced math classes. I believe he will do well on his test."
"The student worked on a final exam review sheet for his trig class. The problems involved all 6 trig functions, using the unit circle, radians vs degrees, co- terminal angles, trig identities, double-angle formulas, half-angle formulas, etc."
"The student and I worked on alphabet and numbers with the following activities: writing and identifying letters, pairing small and large caps letters, identifying letters by sound, identifying and pairing numbers, pairing Spanish and English words. I think her confidence is growing -- she knows quite a few of the letters on her own and all of her numbers!"
