Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered hypothesis testing and linear regression. I noticed she was picking up the concepts a lot better. We will work more with p-values and determining when to reject the null hypothesis. She had some homework problems she could use to review."
"The pupil and I began our session by discussing the slope and slope-intercept forms of equations. We began by looking at graphs and what they were trying to communicate. We also talked about the word "intercept" and what it means on a graph. We then talked about how to find slope by either counting it out on the graph or by using a formula when given two points. We worked several example problems and reviewed her homework from class. I left her with several worksheets she could use for practice. We also discussed poverty for her global studies class. She was given the assignment to find websites/foundations that deal with poverty as a result of certain factors (weak governance, legacy of colonization, etc.). We discussed the circumstances of poverty, and countries she could focus on for the project. She finished the assignment, and it will be ready to turn in this week."
"We went over practice problems from the multiple choice section of a prior Calculus BC exam. The problems covered the following topics: limits, integration techniques, inverse functions."
"We reviewed probability theory. We also went over homework questions that examined how to compare the means between two different groups. The student appears to have a much better grasp of probability theory and how to apply both the addition and multiplication rule in different situations."
"We covered adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers. I left additional practice for the student to work on."
"The student and I looked at graphing trigonometric functions on a coordinate plane. We looked at how the function changes when you shift the graph or scale it differently. We also went over the unit circle and how he can use that to remember sine and cosine values. He was a lot more comfortable with the topic by the end of the session."
