Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's math class is covering it's final chapter before the students take their cumulative final exams. Right now he is going over vectors, so we did a review of what vectors are, the difference between vector and scalar quantities, how to view vectors, add and subtract them, as well as discussed a brief introduction into dot product. We did reviewed his homework assignment on vectors which required a knowledge of law of cosines and sines to find the resultant vectors, as well as the bearing angle. The student also wanted to go over his chemistry assignment on acidbase reactions. We did a quick definition review of Ka, pH, and Kw so that he is not just 'plugging and chugging' numbers into an equation. Next week we will be meeting twice to cover his current coursework, as well as a review of his cumulative class material prior to his final exam."
"Yesterday was my last session with the student! We spent the time reviewing for her cumulative final exam, which she will have next week. She had a review packet which we spent most of the time completing and going over. The packet included the solving of polynomial equations and the factoring of polynomial expressions. A large part of the packet also contained many systems of equations where we would have to solve for two variables using two equations given."
"Today the student and I went over a comprehensive Algebra review for his final next week. We covered various topics such as solving linear equations, solving linear inequalities, simplifying terms, the distributive property, and exponential growth and decay. I would go over a few problems with him, then have him do some on his own. Finally, I had him teach me a problem so I would know if he understood the concepts. I asked about his last few tests and learned about his teacher's grading methods. We also started discussing what to put on his allowed cheat sheet for the final.
He is eager to learn, especially as he wants to be an engineer and understands that a strong math background is key. Once he realizes he knows how to do a problem, he has no issue with it.
I left him with 30 questions covering a wide range of topics for homework. I told him to show all his work and to note any questions or things he'd like to put on his cheat sheet so we can go over it on Monday when we meet again."

"The student has a test on Monday covering systems of equations word problems, so we focused entirely on that. The word problems added a nice layer of complexity to last session's work because in addition to solving the system, the student needed to set up the correct equations using the information from the problems. For example, one of the questions was about a school dance that sold tickets to couples and singles. You need to be careful how you choose to represent couples and singles algebraically. Since a couple is two people, if "x" is the number of couples, the number of actual people is 2x. For the most part, the student managed to solve the practice problems I made up for him. After about an hour, he was confidently setting up and solving about 90% of the problems. There was one type of question that kept stumping him because of the difficulty of the setup. The question involved tailwinds and headwinds blowing with and against a plane flying in the air. Since the tailwind is blowing with the plane, the algebraic representation of the plane's speed with tailwind would be P + W, and with the headwind it would be P  W. This notation is a bit confusing but it makes sense if you think about the situation. P + W is always going to be bigger than P  W, so P + W should always represent the faster speed, which in this situation is the plane flying with the aid of a tailwind."
"The student and I reviewed concepts to prepare for her upcoming test. The test would cover everything she learned during the entire year like factoring trinomials, factoring by grouping, regression equation, graphing quadratic equations, solving systems of equations, histograms, box and whisker plots, median, average rate of change and writing equations for linear and exponential functions."
"Today, we worked on solving algebraic equations. The assignment we worked on was very good for introducing students to solving equations, and the student did very well. By the end, we both agreed it had been very helpful practice since she solved the problems with more and more ease as we continued through. I checked in on the essay she had started working on last week, and the student said she was having trouble organizing her thoughts. I reminded her that she had made an awesome outline and to use it! She is going to work on going back to the outline, but next session we may want to use at least part of the time to start writing."
