Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed material for his upcoming quarter exam, which includes everything from the start of this semester up until now. We worked on a domain, range, and function graphing problem he had to make himself. Additionally, we reviewed graphing ranges and domains and annotating real numbers and their functions."
"We looked at her project, making some progress and discussing where else progress could be made. Then we went through her homework, focusing on proofs using trig functions."
"During the session, the client wanted me to help her review for her test tomorrow. We worked on the chapter review in her book, which included graphing exponential, log and natural log functions, simplifying/evaluating log/ln expressions, and solving those expressions algebraically. I then reviewed with the client the basic steps on how to solve each type of problem. Lastly, I explained the concept behind exponential growth/decay real-world problems."
"The student and I discussed his quiz tomorrow and exactly what he struggles with. The testing tomorrow will be on word problems on systems of equations. We went over practice problems from previous homework, textbook problems, and he brought up any lingering doubts about tomorrow. We ended the session by discussing why he wants to excel in mathematics and his short-term goals for this academic semester. He wants to challenge himself and prove to himself that he can succeed at math at this level. I let him know that he can contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I gave him instructions for further practice and preparation for tomorrow's quiz."
"Today we covered linear equations. We discussed point-slope form, standard form, horizontal lines, and vertical lines. There were problems where we had to apply these concepts. I stated that the formula for slope is change in y/change in x. We found points on a line using slope and a certain given point. Parallel lines have the same slope while perpendicular lines have a negative reciprocal line. The student knew the differences between lines with a positive slope and lines with a negative slope."
"We went over her homework. She understands the concepts really well. With a clear mind she will do well on her quiz, and we will meet again before her quiz to make sure she understands everything."
