Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student texted me with what subjects we'd be working on, so I brought some extra practice. She was working on graphing systems of inequalities and is having some trouble figuring out which side to shade on. I've given her a few tips and tricks to help her get through that - and she took notes on it, which will help. We also worked on theoretical yield - which she was fine with once she figured out the method."
"The student and I reviewed Chapter 4 of his algebra book. We discussed graphing and the equation of a line, along with how to solve for each variable in the equation and how to graph lines when we have two points."
"We went through her algebra notes on arithmetic orders and their formulas. I explained how to determine the formulas and answer the questions. We also covered probabilities of joint and disjoint events. I explained the differences and how she could decipher between the two."
"In today's session, we started with chemistry notes on accuracy and precision in preparation for class next week. The student got a handout on the correct format for his math homework, so for the rest of the session we started correcting his completed assignments so they fit this format."
"(1)I covered with the student solving linear inequalities and representing their solutions by interval notation, set notation, and line graph. (2) I gave him a supervised practice exercise based on the concepts taught. (3) I left him homework assignment as reinforcement for the concepts taught."
"We continued to work on the algebra review course that the student used all summer. We did a module that compared functions to graphs and then to tables. The module discussed how each method of presenting information has its own merits and applied each method to solve problems. You were also asked to compare if a particular table, or graph, or function matched with each other. Then we worked on a module that worked with the relationship P = Ae^kt. We solved problems involving different growths with different A constants and different k constants. The software had us solve population growth problems and bacterial growth problems. The common theme was to first solve for A, and then solve for k and then solve a final problem using the A and k that you originally solved. These problems are long and involved and we discussed shortcuts to solving problems if they were written in the same manner."
