Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I worked on adding and subtracting, multiplying and simplifying, and solving rational expressions. For geometry, we went over the properties of triangles. We also worked on simplifying multivariate expressions. This session was very productive and we covered a lot of material. She was able to recognize the geometry problems we did, along with some of the properties of triangles. The multivariate expressions were focused on simplification of rational expressions, which went well. Some of the most difficult problems of the session involved solving volume proportionalities. We'll continue to work on this in our next session."
"The student had a worksheet on the addition and subtraction of polynomials, so we looked at those. He did much better with watching his signs on this assignment than he had in the past. Once we finished, we talked about his science course, which was discussing biomes. We also got to talk about world economies, the Cold War, and problems of communism and capitalism."
"We covered the root test and ratio test of convergence/divergence. The student was very positive and willing to work. I instructed the student to use online resources in case she needs further help."
"Today, the student and I reviewed the square root function. We focused on graphing a quadratic function, its inverse, and finding the domain and range of square root functions. He did well and is on pace to ace his next quiz."
"Today, I went over equations for circles with the student. I explained how the equation of a circle is developed using the Pythagorean theorem and the distance formula. I think he may be getting more comfortable with it now compared to when we first met."
"I helped with her review homework that was assigned, as well as the practice materials for specific subjects from her review packet. She needed help with some of the graphing of inequalities which she understood after more explanation. We also worked on adding and subtracting fractions with binomials and polynomials."
