Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I covered two lessons. First, we tackled function arithmetic; she had no trouble adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing functions. Then, we moved on to an assignment covering symmetry and piecewise functions; the student picked up the symmetry tests quickly."
"The student went through some of her math homework with me to make sure she had a handle on the concepts. The course seems to be moving pretty slowly, so she had no problem with the assignment. When I was satisfied with her capability we moved on to further discussion of basic trigonometry, and I think she is making great progress."
"Today the student and I work on his math and science homework. He is still working on two step equations and doing very well. His science homework was to develop an animal that evolved in isolated circumstances and what adaptations it had developed to survive. We finished both assignments and I left him with some work to do for me tomorrow."
"The student said she thinks the test went fine, although it did have some tricky problems. Now she's working on chapter 1. She's learning how to use her graphing calculator. I helped her with how to graph equations, view the table of values, and adjust the zoom. I showed her how she can use the calculator to find intercepts. She also was working on the distance formula and the midpoint formula, which she understands with no trouble."
"Today we reviewed future lectures in Algebra 2. Topics included correlation graphs between x and y and correlation coefficients. Then we did multiple linear relations formulas."
"During this session, we spent part of the time going over basic concepts and the rest of the time talking about more advanced concepts that were being covered in his math class. We talked about adding negative numbers, and he seems to have a much better understanding of this topic now. We spent a lot of time talking about scientific notation. He is able to write numbers in scientific notation, but he will need to work on adding and subtracting numbers that are in scientific notation."
