Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Since the student was struggling with science, we worked on her science topics today. She had to answer several end-of-chapter questions about earthquakes, what causes them, and their effects on us and our planet."
"We started to go through one of the sample finals provided to the student by his professor. I was extremely satisfied with today's session, as I was basically a bystander while the student flew through most of the test and asked an occasional question. One of the only times I had to pick up my pencil was to explain the concept of using negative exponent rules to integrate a function, so that one will definitely need special attention so that it doesn't continue to be an issue. Other than that, this was a great session, and I hope that the next one will be just as good or better."
"The student has an upcoming quiz. We completed problems finding the interval where the function is increasing/ decreasing or concave up/down, critical points, and inflections points, graphing after finding all of those components, using mean value theorem to find the point on the curve which is parallel to the secant over the given interval, finding general equations given f'(x), and finding an equation given f'(x) and a boundary condition."
"We reviewed series and sums. While most of the concepts were clearly understood, there was some uncertainty around convergence, divergence, and tests for determined such conditions. The student had a nice fortitude towards overcoming any barriers to his understanding. Today's session was used to practice questions. The student expressed an interest in improving his test performances."
"Today we covered applying exponent rules to solving equations. Initially there were small issues with using the order of operations and recognizing common bases. Soon after, the student handled the material very well."
"Today the student and I covered correlation vs. causation; positive, negative, and no correlations; line of best fit; scatter plots and trends. I taught him that if the line of best fit has a positive slope, the correlation is positive and visa versa."
