Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student review for her Unit 1 pre-cal test. We worked on a review packet together and I made sure she was confident with function transformations and composite functions."
"We went over the topic of factoring polynomials in Pre-Calculus. By the end of the session, he demonstrated that he understood the work by solving the problems correctly."
"We worked on Pre-Calculus homework. The student seems to have a good understanding of matrices; the only issues were simple mistakes with algebra."
"The student and I worked on reviewing in advance of her test. We did several problems on the Chapter 4 cumulative review, focusing on skill building. I urged her to consider using a learning tool website for practice, particularly as it relates to factoring equations (sample problems can be found in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2). It's crucial that she engages in regular practice to keep her skills sharp."
"Today we reviewed absolute extremas, relative minima/maxima using first derivative tests and second derivative tests, points of inflection, regions of up-concavity and down-concavity, and finally limits involving infinity. We did a number of practice problems as the student prepared for her test."
"The student did well tonight! When it came to doing the math, he was very focused! He has a test coming up on Friday which he was worried about, but when we started reviewing the material, he didn't make as many little errors (as he used to) and did the problems well! He showed great progress last night, which I was very happy about. :) I know he'll do well on his test on Friday! He seemed more confident too while we were working out the problems. When we finished going over the material for his test, we did some homework corrections. He's doing better and better on his homework! This is another sign of his great progress. I'm looking forward to the upcoming sessions! He's showing great improvement."
