Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I briefly reviewed her current homework which covered direct, joint, indirect and complex variations. She did great with the questions and was able to clearly explain the concepts back to me. She did have some questions about previous material, so we spent the rest of our time covering simplifying, adding, and subtracting rational expressions. Overall, she did well with the material. She could use some extra practice with factoring to build her confidence with these types of questions. We plan to meet again on Sunday to review for her test on Monday."
"The student completed homework and review problems during this session. The concepts covered included finding percentages, converting measurements (metric length, volume, and weight, American length, volume, and weight), and using the information from graphs to compute percentages and compare values. He has a good grasp of ways to compute percentages. He needs to think through whether to multiple or divide when computing measurement conversion problems."
"We went through mean value theorem, intermediary value theorem, extreme value theorem, particle motion, fundamental theorem of calculus, related rates, and linearization."
"We covered material that was going to be on a quiz the following day. The subjects included graphing quadratic functions, solving quadratic equations with graphing, completing the square to make the trinomial a perfect square, and transformations. The student's attitude was fine towards the material, as she understood the material and just needs to double check her answers. I included a few tips this session for certain problems to help during the quiz."
"Tonight, we reviewed for the student's algebra test tomorrow. He asked his teacher about the challenging questions and was able to get some clarity. We reviewed those and identified trends in where he was going wrong so he knows how to better approach those problems for the test. We also practiced some word problems, and he was able to successfully solve some more problems towards the end. He should do reasonably well tomorrow."
"We looked at some of the student's recent homework assignments and went through them, looking at the problems that he found most difficult and perhaps could not accomplish on his own. He intends to use this information to complete his homework assignments."
