Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had an Algebra 2 exam the following day, so we reviewed what would be on the test. This included the elimination method, graphing method, and the substitution method for inequalities. These were easy concepts to master after a few examples. We also went through some word problems to test the student's ability to be able to set up equations given a certain scenario. Once the inequality is set, we are to graph it and see the point of intersection. The student did not struggle much with this session, and I am confident that he understands the material well."
"For the first session, the student and I reviewed fundamental algebraic concepts that were taught in her previous math class. Then, we covered how to solve inequalities, absolute values, and how to graph inequalities, concepts taught in algebra I. She showed an aptitude for the new material. I concluded the session by telling her to utilize the online practice aids, so that when we revisit subjects covered in the previous session, they will be fresh and we can move along to other areas."
"We reviewed the solutions of exercises from past exams, trigonometry word problems, and the law of sines. The student was attentive and active during our session."
"The student and I covered a range of topics dealing with integration, including lower and upper Riemann sums, integral problems involving substitutions, and taking derivatives of integral expressions using the fundamental theorem of calculus. He has some difficulty with each of these topics, although he has shown improvement, particularly with identifying the proper substitution to make in substitution integrals. He also has shown progress with applying the FTC. Riemann sums were still a source of some confusion, but I believe our additional practice helped. Despite the confusion, he remained invested in trying to figure out the material, which helps our sessions go smoothly. We'll continue to work on these concepts in our next session."
"We went over the entirety of derivatives; specifically, we went over the product, quotient, and chain rules as applied to polynomial, trigonometric, and transcendental functions. I finished the session by giving her a plethora of practice problems, going over everything we covered."
"We covered sectors and triangles, and the leaf-like shapes they can form. We also covered what type of area problems could be asked on an exam. We covered energy flow between trophic levels in an ecosystem. The student's attitude was great, though she was concerned about her quiz tomorrow. I believe some of her fears were addressed during our session."
