Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The topics covered were the following: writing polynomials given the zeros and the end behavior of polynomials. The student was successful on his own with writing polynomials. I introduced the student to end behavior of polynomials. After showing a few problems, the student was able to demonstrate how to describe the end behavior of polynomials. The student is very solid when it comes to learning concepts and applying them."
"This session focused on practicing partial fractions and trig substitutions. The student requested an additional session on 10/6 to aid in preparing for the upcoming exam. Overall, the student seems to have a good grasp of the material covered."
"This session was in preparation for the student's upcoming test. The first half consisted of a review of applied derivatives to find maxima and minima. The second half was giving him practice derivatives to work through and helping him through any struggles he had with them."
"This session was spent continuing with the student's preparation for his math final on this Monday. Most of our time was spent working in the review packets provided by the student's teacher; the content we were able to cover was centered on converting between fractions, decimals, and percentages. He had some minor hiccups, but solved all problems with accuracy and was able to explain his work when asked. We will spend tomorrow's session wrapping up the work in the other packets."
"This session was test prep for the student's test. We did a lot of practice on solving root functions, and she was very good by the end. Then she had questions on graphing cube root functions, so we worked on some examples. She works very hard and I appreciate her effort."
"This session was the first of our three sessions before his final exam. We decided to go over his previous tests on the materials he got wrong, and we also looked over take-home quiz his teacher said they needed to do, though he was unsure if it was material specific to the final exam or just a last minute extra quiz. Either way, it was a good review, since the student has had problems in the past with complex fractions, so the review was welcomed."
