Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered finding angles using the unit circle, finding arc lengths, and rotational velocity. The student was struggling the most with using the unit circle to find angles without using a calculator. He solved the last few problems of this nature on his own and with some practice I think it'll become one of his strengths. He has a positive attitude toward learning the material, and I can tell that he's motivated to learn."
"We did some review for the student's upcoming chemistry test, mostly involving naming. There was a bit of confusion on how the Roman numerals in the naming worked, but he had a good grasp on the subject overall."
"We first covered the chemistry concept of moles and solved some problems relating to it. We then proceeded to solve a worksheet on polynomials that was assigned as homework. She is good with polynomials and understands the concept. I told her that practice was the best way to ensure a good score on her test (which was on Friday). Her mother informed me that her grade in math went up from a C to a B and that she has an A in chemistry."
"We had a group of many students this morning. We worked through absolute value inequalities and graphs, finding the equation of a line from points, and systems of linear equations. Many students were solid on algebra, but they needed review on manipulating negative integers, so I provided some extra practice problems. I had several students ask about when the next tutoring session was, so I'm excited to see more students regularly! They seems very motivated."
"We reviewed a few problems that needed a solution. One problem was calculation of the velocity of a satellite and another was the distance between San Francisco and Seattle using right triangles assuming that these cities are vertically aligned."
"We reviewed his math test to start. Overall, he understood all of the concepts that were tested. However, a lot of small errors reduced his score significantly. We went over strategies to make sure he does not make those small mistakes next time. We then worked on homework concerning irrational roots of graphs."
