Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We were able to get her quiz corrections finished. She knows the material, so I'm not too worried about her upcoming test. We were also able to complete her packet. She blew through the fraction page (thanks to her flash cards!) and was able to grasp the concepts that I taught her about creating equations for lines."
"During this session, the student and I went over various concepts of probability. First we went over what combinations are and how to get the answer for them. I mentioned how combinations are really important in problems such as what is the probability of two people will be chosen from a group of 5. Afterwards, we went over how to solve for the standard normal value as well as finding what the expected value of a set is. We did several examples that helped her understand the concepts better. This was a lot to go over in one session though, so I did let her know that she really needs to study those concepts and do more examples when a test comes up on those topics."
"Reviewed ch. 8 material in preparation for a test. Rational expressions and various operations involving them (+ - x /) and the common methods of solving them. The student seems to have a solid grasp of the material, aided by her teacher's insistence on only assigning easy, friendly problems."
"Tonight, the student nearly completed all of the problems the teacher assigned as review for the student's upcoming calculus exam. We reviewed the first and second derivative test. We also worked on graphing functions and their derivatives."
"We reviewed for the student's test: trapezoid and Simpson's rules for approximating integrals, how to use integrals to find the average value of a curvy function, u-substitution with trig integrals, and even some of his differential equations stuff that he won't be tested on until later. I think he's in a good place, since we got through everything on the list and still had some time to look into newer stuff. Good luck!"
"The student and I did some review of concepts we covered on Monday, particularly implicit differentiation. He needs some practice with this topic, and from the problems we covered, I believe he could benefit from further review on distribution of variables and factorization. We did choose some more difficult problem (probably more difficult than what would be on a test), but the challenge should be good for him in the long run."
