Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the student's project dealing with statistical analysis. We also went over PSAT problems for math."
"We practiced sum-difference, double angle and half angle identities. He is very strong in arithmetic and with algebra."
"Today the student completed online homework. He learned the process of setting up equations to isolate variables, especially quadratics through completing the square. I showed him techniques of finding vertices and modeling story problems, and he will need additional practice with completing the square and, presumably, synthetic division. We plan to go over this in a few days."
"In preparation for the SAT Subject Math 1 test, we covered the first part of the Misc. section, including logarithms, and then we did a 1 hour test with 50 questions. In the test, the student showed 100% accuracy and adequate (at this stage) speed in solving problems. A few of the strategies were added based on this test."
"In today's session, we finished unit 8 for the student's government class. We only have two more short units until that class is finished. We worked on government today. We're planning on meeting three times next week. I hope to finish those two units."
"Today, the student and I continued our work on logarithmic and exponential functions. We first began with a review of this week's material. Then, we went over all but 2 of her homework problems. I explained a topic her teacher will cover later as well. We then discussed that she will work through all the homework and the review sheet this weekend. Then, when we meet on Monday, we can discuss the problems that she struggled with. !"
