Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on adding mixed numbers this session. He practiced problems with increasing difficulty including denominators up to 30 and putting answers in lowest terms. We will continue this on Thursday to make sure he feels confident adding mixed numbers on his own. He also practiced subtracting fractions from whole numbers. He seems to have a good grasp of this concept but we will review on Thursday."
"The student had homework on independent and dependent events. We first reviewed the definitions and difference between the two, and did a practice problem. She had quite a bit of practice homework, and we talked through every problem. She explained her answers and checked her work. With 20 minutes left, we went back to practicing finding volume and surface area of 3D shapes. We will continue practicing until she is confident using all of the formulas."
"We covered volumes of rotation using the disc method and the washer method. The student caught on quickly. Her attitude toward the material was great; she learned very fast. I didn't leave her with any extra practice because we covered the basics and she will likely be going over more advanced examples soon in class. A win from the session was that she mastered the concepts behind the generalized equations for volume by rotation using both the disc and washer methods."
"We went over a few problems involving joint probability distribution. It was slow-moving at first, but we were able to finish the first two questions and get started on the third. He has an upcoming exam so we will likely meet a few times before next Monday."
"I tutored the student in algebra (reviewed foiling, working with binomials and the distributive property). I also worked with her in pre algebra (reviewed interior and exterior angles for a triangle and worked on Spanish)."
"The student is reviewing quadratic equations to prepare for his test. We worked on some problems together. I also asked him to work on some problems on his own to make sure he could work independently."
