Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed some of the reading comprehension and vocabulary work he has been doing in school. We also did some reading and wrote a summary of the main ideas at the end."
"We studied lines and angles in preparation for an upcoming Geometry test. In addition, we reviewed some algebraic concepts such as simplifying radicals, the distributive property, and solving systems of equations that are required for the more advanced problems."
"The student has a test next week on the first chapter covering basic concepts in chemistry and handling numbers. I helped her with a test review, and she also worked on her assignment due the next week. She is extremely engaged and likes to understand the concepts clearly, so we worked slowly through the problems and she picked them up by the end of the session and was able to identify when to apply which conditions."
"Today, the student and I reviewed chapter two topics for the algebra test that she has tomorrow. We first went over the questions she got wrong on a recent quiz, then proceeded to review old homework and practice problems. The student performed very well when doing them."
"Today, we continued to discuss how to find derivatives using the power rule. We then made a connection between finding derivatives and physics. The first derivative of the position function is velocity and the second derivative of the position function is the acceleration function. Using these relationships, we discussed how to find the velocity and acceleration at certain important time periods as well as ways to determine where the critical points of motion are. We also worked on solving for tangent lines of functions. The student seems quite confident solving these types of problems."
"The student and I worked on her assignment about fiscal policy and inflation. The assignment was relatively straightforward, and the student was very well prepared for it. She gave strong and complete answers to the questions. She was able to work through some extra problems, and we finished early due to her competence in the area. The student has a keen interest in the subject and is a diligent worker. Her final is coming up soon, and I am confident that she will do well. We will meet once more before the final to go over the review sheet. The student got high marks on her last paper, and the test was especially difficult. This was particularly encouraging with the final coming up."
