Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over logarithms. The student seemed knowledgeable in the material that was being reviewed. He did a good job today and I look forward to working with him in our next session."
"We worked on key concepts from Chapter 6.4 and 6.5. Ch. 6.4 is finding the inverses of functions, and the steps to doing that is to write out the equation for the function, and then swap the x and y, and then solve for y. Ch. 6.5 is about graphing exponents. From the original graph of y = root of x, we studied transformations based on y = a*root of (x-h) + k. We also studied the graphs of cubic root, etc. I think he understands these 2 chapters pretty well, he just needs more practice with solving for x/y. He has 30 more questions for homework for Chapter 6 that he needs to turn in on Monday."
"The student and I worked on his homework assignment covering derivatives and integrals of logarithms and exponentials. He did very well on most of the problems. We discussed a few of the harder questions in preparation to see them on an upcoming test. He left with good knowledge of the material, as well as insights into the applications towards other problems. No concerns on my behalf."
"Today we covered Algebra 2 and reviewed for his upcoming exam on Tuesday. We did practice problems in quadratics, parabolas, factorization, rational/irrational numbers, radicals, etc. He knew how to do most of the questions, so we spent most of our time going over problems he found difficult. This was a very effective use of time. I think he will do well on his upcoming exam."
"In my session with Student 1 and Student 2, we covered calculating standard deviation, graphing and explaining box plots, graphing linear equations, the properties of equality, and storytelling for data presented in a graph. Both were positive about the algebra material we reviewed. For Student 2, I suggested that she review her notes/classwork/homework alongside her practice test, reviewing the topics in the order which they appear on the practice test to help her organize the material she must know for her upcoming algebra midterm."
"During this session, we did a lot of practice with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. We worked on finding a common denominator for adding and subtracting fractions. We then reviewed the section in her book on solving algebraic equations with fractions. She understood all of this material very well and performed everything correctly. She has a test over the material later this week and she seemed well-prepared for it and she said she felt prepared for it also."
