Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered redox reactions and tackled chemistry questions together. I hope the student has a better understanding of chemistry from our sessions and wish her the best on her upcoming exam."
"The student and I continued to work on statistics, moving on to quadratic and exponential best fit lines and growth patterns; he is gaining proficiency in Excel and in graphing data. He had a test on Friday that he feels good about, and he is confident about his math final. We also talked about college applications more, going over strategies for writing and making oneself a strong candidate."
"I helped the student work through a pre-test for the first two sections. We worked through problems dealing with equations of a line, solving equations for variables, setting up equations from word problems, inequalities.. etc."
"I had my last session with the student, and we worked on her take-home quiz. There were lots of new concepts that she was not familiar or comfortable with - box and whisker plots, stem and leaf tables, skewed distributions. She was able to do the problem once I explained things, and she needs more help in school. We also reviewed some of the materials from earlier in the year in prep for her final - order of operations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing decimals/fractions/mixed numbers; areas of shapes. She learned a lot this year, and I hope it will help her keep her confidence up going into 7th grade."
"In today's session, the student and I discussed his placement examination so that I could get a better understanding of the topics he was struggling with. Following the placement exam discussion, we proceeded to discuss the order of operations, equations with two-variables, and operations on fractions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). I assigned him some homework problems in preparation for the following session as well. This was a great session!"
"Today we began to review for the student's exam on Thursday. We went over capacitors, circuits, and dielectrics. He received an 84 on his previous exam, and feels that the sessions helped him pull up his grade!"
