Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by reviewing completing the square when a = 1, and then doing several problems where a wasn't 1. He remembered how to do them, and got the hang of the more complicated problems after two examples. We finished by going through a review assignment on exponentials, radicals and polynomials, which he did very well with."
"We covered taking limits by substitution, discontinuous and continuous functions, and the average rate of change. The student was ready to learn. We started making a sheet of important equations and definitions that he has learned. The student is going to make a list of topics which are on his quiz for us to review tomorrow before class."
"We worked and discussed a 51 question practice exam that the student provided. He was able to load it onto the online tutoring platform for us to work. It was a very productive session."
"The student has a test tomorrow, and his mother asked for a session tonight rather than tomorrow night. We went over his study guide on series and sequences. There were multiple problems to find terms, equations and sums for both arithmetic and geometric strands. We will meet again on Tuesday."
"We went over the last math topics the student will need for her final tomorrow. I made sure to cover all of the most important topics first, like multiplying fractions, dealing with decimals, and rounding before moving on to what may be on the test but is a little less necessary, like Roman numerals and stem and leaf plots. I'm a little bit worried she may forget some steps to complete problems, but the ones I was worried about are the ones we went over the most and for the longest amount of time. I think the student will do very well on her exam tomorrow."
"Today I continued helping the student prepare for a math test he has tomorrow. It's a large test on the first five chapters they learned this year. Today we spent the time focusing on converting between fractions/decimals/percents, as well as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. After refreshing his memory a bit, he seemed to have a good grasp on how to solve all of these different kinds of problems."
