Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session was my first session with the student, and it went very well. We covered the concepts of radicals (simplifying and dividing) that she has learned in class and at the end, we started additions. We spent the first hour reviewing her spring break packet and extra credit that are due after spring break. When I arrived, she already had packets of extra practices printed out (she's very motivated!) so we picked out some problems to work on for the rest of the session. At the end of the session, she confirmed that she has a much better understanding of radicals."
"The student completed an online homework for math. Then I had her complete an elementary math practice test. I explained some problems using percent and decimals that she did not know."
"Student actually took the test on Thursday, and student said that it was straight forward and she thinks she did well on it. She felt more confident with the test than before. Today we reviewed old material to keep it fresh in her mind. Worked through about 30-40 problems on integration and derivatives for more practice. Student is doing quite well with derivatives and integration but applying them is kind of difficult. Overall session was good."
"We met for the first time today. The student and I talked for a while and established some goals and what we will do in our meetings. We then did many problems in partial differentiation. She had a little difficulty with some execution of the basic rules, but she was able to quickly pick up the concepts and made some very good choices when evaluating derivatives."
"We reviewed calculating the area of a circle as it pertains to different figures that are within that circle, ex. circle in a circle, two circles in a circle, a square in a circle. The student demonstrated vast improvement in her understanding of the concepts and recognition of the appropriate formulas to apply in order to achieve the correct answer."
"The student discussed strategies for his new project of 4's today where he must equate the numbers 1 through 50 using only the number 4. We continued our session in multi-step algebraic equations involving fractions. He did very well but needs to continue practicing carrying over his positive and negative signs."
