Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I completed review material for the equation of a line including how to find a slope, parallel slope, perpendicular slope, how to translate equations vertically and horizontally, and rules of exponents when bases are multiplied, divided, or raised to a power. We then completed 20 review problems."
"We covered confidence intervals: when to use z and t distribution critical values and how to calculate the difference of means confidence interval. The student's attitude was positive towards the material, and she showed determination in solving the various problems. She answered all of the questions correctly today. I recommended she keep practicing with confidence intervals, especially since they are useful and guaranteed to be on the exam."
"The student and I combined like terms, and solved proportion equations and percent equations. Then we solved two-step equations. He is getting so much better at algebra. He still has some issues with integers, but he has made so much progress that I am confident that he is going to have a good grasp of integers by the time he takes the GED test."
"The student is preparing for a test on Friday, so she and I went through her practice worksheet. The topic is still focused on quadratic equations and properly graphing them. She has shown real progress in this area by improving her graphing methods with the cheat sheet I gave her. Evaluating the quadratic equation is becoming easier as well, and I feel that she has the potential to get an A on her upcoming test."
"During this session, we did practice problems on topics such as integration, implicit differentiation, and finding slopes of tangent lines. The student had a positive attitude and kept trying to solve each problem to the best of his abilities. During this session, I utilized old AP exam practice problems."
"Today, the student and I reviewed for his test tomorrow. He completed his review sheet with relative ease, and he completed more practice problems on the same topic. We also went over the test he got back most recently. Most of what he lost points on were simple mistakes that can be fixed with more focus during the test. What he struggled with most on the test was creating inequalities from word problems - deciphering at least, at most, etc. I left with advice to practice with more of those so that the language of the problems will make more sense."
