Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student M worked on his word problems book. We reviewed how to underline the main given pieces of information. We then also underlined what the problem is asking him to do. We discussed strategy to work efficiently and quickly. He took notes to which he can refer back. Student H also worked on his workbook. He focused on geometry. We discussed acute, obtuse and right angles, vertex, diameter, radius, chords, and perpendicular lines bisecting a line. We also discussed the relationship between opposite angles, the meaning of complimentary and supplementary angles. This session is an excellent introduction to geometry and he has a great grasp of the material."

"The final exam is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. In this morning session, we focused on optimization and linear algebra. In the afternoon session, we will review integration techniques and what integration fundamental is."
"We worked with homework problems from 11.10, covering the Taylor and Maclaurin Series. These are difficult problems, but the student began to understand what the questions were asking towards the end of the session. We will work further with these topics in the days before his next exam."
