Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's factoring homework, which included factoring cubes and squares. He seems to be progressing well."
"Today, the student and I looked over the website for his new online course. We read over the course introduction and syllabus and watched the accompanying videos."
"Today, we went over simplifying expressions with fraction exponents. We also practiced some composite functions as well as finding the domain and range. The student has an exam on Tuesday, and we will meet on the upcoming Monday at 4pm."
"We continued to discuss logarithmic functions, specifically product and quotient rules, and solving for missing the variable using rules of log functions and algebra. Again the student was able to solve problems quickly when in the form b^y=x or log(x)=y but had difficulty applying the product/ quotient rules to rearrange functions into this form. We walked through the process, giving special attention to algebraic steps necessary to solve the problems. Soon she began to pick up the concepts and could solve the problems with little intervention."
"The student had some math homework that he worked on. It focused on greatest common factor, ratios, ratio equivalents, and other topics covered in the recent test. He is comfortable with many of these topics but still needs some extra practice to remember the best and fastest way to do the problems, to avoid having to list all the factors for all the numbers before finding an answer. We talked about some shortcuts, and he got faster as we practiced those. He got to 100% on his math, and then he read a chapter from his book to me. He's a very good reader, especially out loud, and we discussed the meanings of a few words he didn't know."
"We have talked about imaginary numbers and how to graph quadratic equations. The student understood imaginary numbers, however he struggled sketching quadratic equations. He was very energetic and liked the material. I recommended he do more practice problems and pay close attention to details. He got an improved score on his last test. The session was a win session."
