Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed for the student's final. I showed him the main formulas for his statistical problems and had him practice until he felt comfortable with them. I also gave him guidelines on how to handle rational expressions and how to obtain all graphical aspects. We continued doing problems until he felt ready and confident doing them without assistance. He has his final on Friday."
"Student and I prepared for her final exam by going over study guide and some of her quizzes to make sure she understood her mistakes. We spent most of our time on a quiz covering exponential functions. She was very close on a lot of the problems but made a few small errors. I am confident that she understands the concepts, she just needs to have confidence in her abilities and avoid the small errors."
"We worked through the student's teacher assigned Pre-Calc review. The review covered a very wide range of topics, ranging from simpler logic problems that only required a few algebraic steps, to more involved problems including the analysis of graphs and finding best fit models for data. He knew how to do every single type of problem that was presented in this review. The thing that he struggled the most with was that he was working too quickly, not checking his work, and getting tripped up with the multiple choice answers. We discussed strategies for working effectively through these multiple choice problems, and how to use the given answers to your advantage. We managed to work through a majority of the review in our time given, and he was really working well with the problems towards the end of the session."
"The student and I studied for his assessment test. We discussed a practice test online. The student far exceeds the knowledge tested on the assessment and had no trouble answering any of the questions. We then looked at some upcoming material."
"Today we reviewed more equations using logarithms and exponentials as well as an old test on maximums, minimums and optimizations. The student had a slight difficulty in grasping the concept of a graph of a derivative and relating it to the original function. As always, his attitude was curious and attentive. Additionally, there is a significant amount of calculus being covered in a precalc class, including derivatives, maximum/ minimums, optimization etc."
"We went over some conic sections (hyperbolas, parabolas, ellipses, and circles). Her class seems to be not preparing her well notes-wise."
