Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had improved on his test. He would have done better if he had double checked some problems, but he is heading in the positive direction. We reviewed his test and he grasped the majority of the concepts. We reviewed circles and weird symbol functions. He quickly grasped manipulating circle equations, but struggled with the setup of weird symbol functions. His hw is to take a test."
"The student seems to be doing great in a very accelerated pre-calc course. She understood the concepts we went over easily, once they were broken up for her. We discussed limits, continuity, concavity, and extrema."
"Today we studied for her stats proficiency exam. We covered probabilities and hypothesis testing. Once we laid out clear steps for hypothesis testing the vocabulary much more sense to her. A tip to help her reason though decision rules is to draw a picture of the bell curve and shade in the region she is looking for, being careful to remember z-scores are on the outside margins of the table while probabilities are in the center of the table."
"We specifically worked on geology. She only seemed to be struggling with memorization, and she has a great little attitude! I didn't include any skills, as I felt we only needed to work on memorization. She seems to be improving confidence wise and is a great student. I have no concerns. She is doing great!"
"This was the student's last session before taking the GRE tomorrow. We started by working on conditional probabilities, such as "drawing marbles from a bag" type problems. We also reviewed negative exponents."
"Today, the student and I completed Lesson 35. We started with our normal warm-up conversation, and I provided corrections when necessary. For today's lesson, we really focused on conversation and introducing more vocabulary. She is doing incredibly well during our conversations, and we rarely have to use English except to clarify or provide a difficult grammatical explanation. We talked about her day and daily routine, incorporating present tense, past tense, and imperfect tense. We sometimes use English for clarification purposes, but we then switch back to Spanish. She is doing very well remembering how to respond to questions using the correct personal ending and the correct tense."
