Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we set a strategy for the student's calculus class. First, we will walk through the current assignment on centroids. Second, we will review before the next exam. Today we primarily covered centroids. We will address hyperbolic integrals in the future. She has a grasp of the numerical techniques of integration and understands the centroid material."
"Today we worked on solving problems that had a square-root function in them. The student understood the material better each time we went over it. We also worked on solving quadratic equations by factoring. We did about six examples of this nature, and by the end of the session he knew the steps to solve this type of problem."
"The students told me they had started learning how to solve proportions. The first student told me there would be a quiz on Wednesday on ratios, unit rates and proportions. He had a homework sheet on solving proportions that he completed during the session, and he understood the material pretty well. The second student had a few problems left on the same homework sheet and completed them. He also understands the material. I gave both of them practice problems on ratios, unit rates and proportions to prepare them for the quiz. They both had good attitudes today."
"Today we once again focused on state assessment exam prep. We reviewed the homework I assigned last week and took a look at the work from the test prep book chapters 1-2. We also looked at a math sampler and assigned topics for each one so that she can do independent research to solve some of them. We also reviewed quadratic functions."
"We reviewed inequalities in equations, e.g. having $1000 to spend, "at least", "no more than", "less than", etc. I provided inequality word problems as homework."
"We covered converting word problems into algebra and manipulating equations. The student has missed several days in school and therefore is rather unfamiliar with the techniques that his peers have already learned. We will be working on getting him caught up to the class with a solid understanding of the topics he missed."
