Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus in depth. We went over the concept, some of the finer points of it, and some example problems. We also went over Leibniz Rule which relates to the First Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. We did some problems relating to u substitutions. After that we switched to physics and looked at the few problems she got wrong on her quiz. She now understands why she got them wrong. She was very close to getting them right."
"In this session, we covered parallel lines and geometric solids for the student's test on Tuesday. I provided him with practice examples of drawing a parallel line using his ruler and right triangle ruler. He seems to understand the importance of recognizing the right angles when drawing a parallel line. I also taught him how to draw a cube by drawing one square and measuring from the center of that square to draw the other square face of the cube."
"My client and I completed our test review that covered inequalities, fraction adding/subtracting/multiplying/division. We also wrote out algebraic functions for finding the areas of parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids. I used rhyming strategies for dividing fractions. I also made her flashcards for her multiplication tables."
"We covered greatest common factor. We found the greatest common factor for several problems then talked about common factors versus the greatest common factor. We then used the skills practiced finding the greatest common factor to simplify fractions."
"The student and I reviewed what we had been working on. We also covered logarithmic functions in depth. He was very positive. I reviewed his review work, and I explained how to work any problems that he had trouble with. He has plenty of practice worksheets. He is very confident that he will score an A on his test tomorrow, and he has the tools to do so. I believe we are moving in a positive direction. He is more focused and appears to enjoy the tutoring sessions."
"Started the session by going over a problem we left unsolved at the end of last week's session. We missed a key part of the solution before, but once I brought the concept to the student's attention, she seemed to understand what to do from there. Since this was the last session before the student's final on Thursday, we spent the rest of the session covering the questions she had from the review sheet. We covered using the average of a function, e.g. the cost function and velocity function, linearization, and regions of a function that are increasing/decreasing. I wrote some detailed notes for her on a separate review sheet for the student, and encouraged her to do the same for any other concepts she studies tonight and struggles with."
