Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Calculus: Studied differentials, when they are useful, necessary, and solved related problems. Also solved related rate problems with two or more variables making substitution necessary to reduce to one independent variable which is then differentiated."
"The student and I spent the session catching up on some review sections: triangles, coordinate geometry, and measures of center for math; paragraph development and the top 16 common grammatical errors on the SAT for writing; and long passage reading comprehension and main idea identification for reading. We also continued with our vocabulary building and current events research. I also provided her with information on the ACT so that she knows her options for test taking. Lastly, we talked more specifically about her SAT goals and her college choices. She's making strong progress."
"We continued working with the GRE algebra book. We went over factoring, order of operations, and spent a long time on quadratic equations. The student is going to take a practice SAT this weekend, and we will move on to geometry on Monday."
"The session started with us going through the homework assignment. She had some minor mistakes, but for the most part she did very well on it. We then went through chapter six topics, which included rational exponents and radicals and composition and power functions. We went through old tests and quizzes as well as chapter notes. I also prepared a set of sample problems that we went through as well. She struggled with the material in the beginning of the session but by the end she seemed to have a much better grasp of it."
"The student and I reviewed a chapter for his test that covered Lewis dot diagrams, geometry of compounds and what the structure formulas are. He had flashcards we looked over and problems in the text book plus the study guide."
"We reviewed numbers 1-100, pronouns, school vocabulary, family and people vocabulary, and the verbs comer and beber. We also talked about the difference between masculine and feminine nouns. The student did very well responding to questions about objects in his classroom."
