Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session was spent entirely on reviewing z-scores and solving z-score problems from the student's textbook. The first one took him almost an hour to complete, but by the end he had gotten his time down to about ten minutes or so, which should be fast enough for his upcoming test. He's improved a great deal."
"We went over material for her upcoming tests over probability equations and diagrams. She was very confident when we reviewed the things we covered in our previous session. When we began going over the new material there were a couple issues with formulas, but once we went over a few examples she seemed to understand. Towards the end of the session, she found the tree diagrams difficult to apply, next session we are going to focus on these."
"Today was my initial session with the student. We went over a homework assignment that she previously turned in and got wrong. Some of the topics we covered were z-tables, percentiles, normal distribution, and probability. She expressed to me that she understood the concepts better at the end of our session. I advised her to really try to memorized the probability rules and always double check to see if her statistical answer made logical sense. We have another session tomorrow evening to continue preparing her for her upcoming exam."
"Today the student worked on her math homework. She is studying graphing of parabolic functions and the equations used to find key points. Due to a lack of time, I was not able to be as thorough as I would have liked in the subject, but I feel that she got a good foundation in the subject. I will review the subject with her next meeting."
"The student worked on homework for law of sines and law of cosines, including SSA ambiguous case, which is not in the book. He got 100% on his last quiz. His chapter 8 exam is on Friday."
"The graded semester test was completed today with the student scoring 97% correct answers on 44 questions. He needed review of probability of one event or another occurring (add the probabilities). He studied the trapezoid which had not been presented in the lessons. The student showed mastery of the number line, probability problems with dice, marbles and spinners, finding percent, solving proportions, distance formula, mean and median, compound interest, points and figures in the (x, y) plane, and solving algebraic expressions."
