Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I covered the following concepts during the session: review of Chapter 2: adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing integers, absolute value, and plotting points on coordinate planes. Per his mother's request, we reviewed for his upcoming Chapter 2 test. He does have a good understanding of the concepts and was able to do practice problems, but he still made simple mistakes. He struggled a bit with word problems. Therefore, I focused more on them during the session. I emphasized breaking down the information given and review what information is needed. He tends to go over the problems too quickly. He will review and practice some more on his own."
"I covered vectors, planes, the dot product, cross product, and parametric equations which the student had little knowledge of. I helped the student work through homework problems. They were able to grasp the material successfully."
"I did a review of the whole semester (so far) using the student's algebra book, and she seemed to remember some of the material and some of her mistakes on the last quiz. I will do the same review but faster the next two sessions which will allow for problem solving and corrections."
"I enjoyed working with you! It seems that you are doing well on the chain rule. Just remember to take the derivative of the outside function, working your way inside until the last function has been differentiated. Remember that the tangent line of a function f at a point x=a is just the derivative of that function f at the point x=a. Just find the derivative and plug in. I look forward to working with you again! "
"I feel like this was a particularly encouraging day. Since this was the review for the test, I took a more passive stance and asked the student to read the instructions and show me where she would start and what she would do with each question. Where I usually guide her through the process, this time I simply watched and gently corrected if any mistakes were made. It was great to see how much she has retained from what we've been learning. There were only a few questions that I really had to take an active role in helping with and all the rest she only needed a little bit of assistance and she more or less did the work on her own. It is great to see her suddenly blazing through problems that seemed to throw her for a loop when we first learned them. She did a lot better with paying attention today, and even though we went a little over time, I feel that we spent most of our time together focused and actively working through the problems."
"I finished Question 76 of adding all comments to the table, and carried out paired t-test today based on Part V and Part VIII, the results show great statistical significance in knowledge and confidence increase after the research video for PSA screenings and medical exams."
