Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Since the student finished her homework packet before my arrival, so I taught her more about function superposition (I believe that's what they're doing next), and later we talked about solving linear systems using matrices."
"Reviewed factoring of quadratics and other polynomials using grouping and factoring. Covered homework problems along with several additional problems at both second and third degree polynomials. The student did very well and was able to complete many of the problems perfectly."
"Logarithms when a variable is raised to a decimal power. Student worked diligently and was able to correct mistakes quickly. Raise both sides of an equation to the reciprocal of the decimal power to solve it. Student seems comfortable with logs and natural logs."
"The student was continuing to work on factoring quadratics and was now working with leading coefficients greater than one. I sent her the link to a review site and went through the process of finding the master product with her. This was very helpful and she was then able to work more efficiently. She was had a set of problems she needed to factor by grouping. She was unsure how to do these so we went through how to do these problems as well. I sent her another link, so she would have the information if she needed it after the session. She was doing much better with the material at the end of our session."
"We covered quadratic functions, their translations, and solving them. She had a test coming up, so I made sure that she understood the concepts of solving quadratic equations, how to shift graphs, and how to properly read the questions. Good session, she is more carefully going through the material instead of rushing through."
"We prepared for her quiz tomorrow. As usual the student knows the material, but she likes to go over the practice questions to make sure that she understand all concept. We reviewed stem and leaf plots, box whiskers that focus on various concepts: The first and third quartiles are at the ends of the box, the median is indicated with a vertical line in the interior of the box, and the maximum and minimum are at the ends of the whiskers. Box-and-whisker plots are helpful in interpreting the distribution of data). She did very well in all the questions, and felt good about the material. I plan on seeing her next week if she has a quiz."
