Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, the student's teacher specifically asked that I have the student verbally express the flashcards out loud, so that's what we did as our warmup. I used my addition/ subtraction flashcards and he read the problems out loud. Then he worked on his homework, which consisted of subtraction problems. We also did some online multiplication flashcards."
"The student and I worked on a review of her last problem set for the course. The problem set dealt with slope fields. A slope field details the slope of a function at certain point on a plain. The original function (not the slope) must be able to fit perfectly into the graph."
"We started going through a study guide for the student's upcoming test provided by the math department. The study guide has problems ranging from absolute extrema to elasticity of demand, as well as finding the area between curves and using the producer's/ consumer's surplus equations. He needed help with the optimization problems where he was forced to generate his own revenue function. After practicing with both these and the ones found on online, I feel that he is ready to tackle this part of the test, but he will need some more work on integration and the topics related to that. With another session or two where we focus on integration, I think he can be ready to do well on the upcoming test."
"The student and I reviewed his homework on the Pythagorean theorem for the beginning of the lesson. He seems to comprehend the concepts completely and only occasionally needed help with more multi-step problems. We also went over review for his test that is coming up Monday on exponential operations. We did several review problems and discussed how to apply the various exponent rules and some tricks to understand the problems easier."
"The student and I reviewed his Chapter 5 material in preparation for his math final exam. We went over using log, ln, and exponential equations, including graph behavior, asymptotes, intercepts, and shapes of positive and negative graphs. We also practiced transferring log equations to exponential equations, and vice versa. We went over the rules for expanding and condensing logs as well."
"We went over a few of the questions The student had on the free response questions and the multiple choice questions. She understood the material very quickly. She said that she did better than previously on her free response quiz."
