Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I looked over his homework that he had to do. I selected a problem from each section and he did them all correctly without help. He was able to talk me through the rest of the problems as well. "
"Tonight we went over balancing chemical equations. She had some problems to do for homework and she also had to make a poster with an illustration of a balanced chemical equation. We worked on these and planned for the next few sessions. We will be meeting next Monday to review for her word test on Tuesday and go over homework. Next Wednesday, we will meet and review for her Chemical Reactions test on Thursday."
"The student and I went over more differential equations (first order linear ones using the u, P, Q). I helped her review how to do these types since she had missed a day in class--we also figured out some more integration rules. Additionally, I went over some SAT math prep with her for her upcoming retake--we went over general topics, focusing on some operations, geometry and algebra word problems."
"Again, the student demonstrated her diligence and commitment. It is a pleasure working with her. MATH: - We started where we had left off Tuesday. underlining important info in lengthy problems. The trick to determining if something is divisible by 3 or 6. We also covered: dividing decimals, converting fractions to decimals, subtracting and getting negative numbers. ENGLISH: We reviewed the vocabulary she looked up for homework, then covered up answers and determined own definition first. We then looked up vocabulary and creating mnemonic devices, using our knowledge of French to remember words."
"We reviewed for a test on exponential equations including graphing and solving for unknown variables. Later we looked at half-life. The student was very engaged and was also able to catch his mistakes and effectively diagnose his difficulties. All-in-all, he is developing an excellent understanding of algebra and should be proud of his growth."
"The student was having some trouble figuring out why his test cases weren't providing 100% coverage, so we looked through his test code together. Turns out he was pressing the run button instead of the test button. But he was also missing a few other test cases that weren't showing up as incomplete, so we finished those as well. Then we talked briefly about what hash functions are and what they're used for."
