Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered finding roots and inequalities of polynomials. He understood most of the concepts. I showed him he knew how to do all the problems. He has his own practice problems to do. Overall, this was a great session!"
"The student's homework was on a new concept he started in class today, Geometry. He had a work sheet on lines, rays, and angles. We reviewed and corrected as the student had to identify and draw points, line segments, rays and types of angles. I expanded on the concept by teaching that these lines, line segments and rays are sometimes described by the relationship they have to other lines, line segments and rays. Then the student completed a practice worksheet to identify and name parallel lines, perpendicular lines, perpendicular rays, a line segment, a ray, a point and lines, scoring 85%. The student attitude was good, he was focused and caught on easily to the new material."
"The session explored the concept of ratios in greater depth. We applied the concept to the real life example of quilt design. We also worked on filling in ratio tables and other ways that knowledge of ratios would be tested. Next we worked on equivalent fractions, decimals and percentage using manipulatives represent ions circle sections. We added and subtracted mixed fractions and practiced reducing."
"Today we reviewed the unit circle which the student has drastically improved on. The student also worked with volume concepts, which I tried to help clear up. The student understood the methods at the end. We worked on some practice problems using both washer, and shell method. The student completed some limits at the end, to bring in earlier material. I re-introduced limit concepts and the student was able to solve a second problem on her own."
"He has a test later this week so we completed several types of problems with logarithms and exponential functions."
"We covered Chapter 7-2 Set (Union, Intersection, Complement, and Subsets). The student did well with this new material. He needs to continue to commit the different symbols to memory, and the shading of Venn Diagrams and what they mean. Also, he should continue to review the Gauss-Jordan elimination method for solving systems of 3 equations with 3 variables."
