Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is beginning to work on Trig identities. This part of Trig is usually really tough, so we will be spending a lot of time practicing the identities and working with various challenge problems. I have also let him borrow my Precalc book until his comes in for his class."
"The student had worked on rewrites to her English paper on Evelina, which she had sent me during the week. She spent the session making some more corrections and working on deepening her analysis and making an original argument, as opposed to summarizing someone else's. She will submit her rewrite to her professor on Monday."
"Today the student and I continued to work on the writing section of the test. We worked through a section of practice questions together. We went over a whole writing section, discussing each question in-depth."
"The student and I covered math and physics for test he has tomorrow. In math, we covered linear equations in slope-intercept form, intercept form, general form, and point-slope form. We also reviewed graphing. In physics, we reviewed gravitational potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, work, and power."
"During this last session before the student's assessment, we made sure that he knew the main strategies he will use for each section, made sure the outline of the writing portion was memorized, and practiced some Reading passages on the website. We spent time practicing math problems that require an indirect/alternate approach."
"We reviewed the student's LOOP project, tested collinearity among potential regressors, reviewed the regressed univariate structural relationship, constructed a 30-day mean and variance of price variable, and compared the regression performance of the novel index versus the standard measure of volatility."
