Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began today's session by briefly reviewing homework corrections on the geometric series homework. The majority of today's session was spent discussing her chemistry project. It was difficult to find information about the history of antacids, so we discussed how to find credible resources and how to fill in the gaps by applying her knowledge from class. By the end of the session, she had a rough draft of her first 4 slides. I recommend that she try to find a book on antacids at the library since finding online articles has proven very difficult."
"The student has a test tomorrow on volumes of solids so we were reviewing for that. I found word problems online that we covered. He was able to do them on his own, which is great! I gave him a little homework, which was to make flashcards of the parallel line theorems to review for his final. I think he's ready for the test tomorrow, and he said he felt ready too."
"We started the session by going over the quiz the student took. She forgot to make the equation an exponential one, but once I showed her how to create exponential equations, she was able to grasp the idea quickly. Afterwards, we worked on how to simplify logarithmic expressions and how to convert between logarithmic form and exponential form."
"He got his packet from his school. We started reviewing packet 16.1 and 16.2. We went over most of the problems. He needs to do a few problems for homework."
"Today we worked on a homework packet focusing on finding the area of sectors and segments of circles. Her engaged nature and strong math understanding allowed her to progress steadily through the material. Her only area of possible improvement are little mistakes that she occasionally makes in her haste to solve the problems. Otherwise, she made tremendous progress and practice with the material."
"We worked on reviewing for the student's final test, which was on finding the probability of dependent and independent events and geometric probability. She was confused with these topics, so we began going over her notes and packet and did the examples following the notes. We then proceeded to review her homework, and she did a good job with most of the problems. We went over some more examples afterwards, and I thought she had a much better understanding of probability and finding geometric probability than before we started the session. She didn't have any questions at the end of the session and seemed to be ready and confident for her test on Monday."
